Emphasising the need to improve standards of imparting education, Punjab Governor and UT Administrator Shivraj Patil on Monday directed the concerned officials of the UT Administration to use modern technology in the classrooms to impart education.

After inaugurating the newly constructed smart school — Government High School in Sector 54 here, Patil asked the concerned officers to use modern technology in the classrooms by adding the system of imparting education through recorded lectures of eminent professors.

He said this will help in saving time, money and solving the problems of shortage of teaching staff up to some extent. He also asked the officers to purchase cameras and install them in three directions of the main auditorium to deliver recorded lectures of best teachers of India and the world on screen.

The UT Administrator also directed the UT chief architect to design all new schools, having all provisions required for smart classrooms.

Patil added we have to follow the system of bigger classrooms fully equipped with latest technology to impart education on modern lines. He also appreciated the introduction of the system of double shift in 40 schools.

Besides, he emphasised on adopting system of distant education so that education can be provided to everyone and in remote areas also.

The administrator said that we should not limit admission in Government schools to students of union territory only, but if seats were available, students of Mohali and Panchkula should also be considered.

Earlier Patil, visited classrooms and computer labs of Government schools of Sector 53 and 54 and also tasted Midday Meal prepared for the students.

Speaking on the occasion, KK Sharma, Advisor to Administrator said that, in 12th five year plan, all deficiencies of Education Department would be cleared. He said 106 Government schools and 7 aided schools are catering to some 1,61,000 students from classes pre-primary to XII. And, 69 private schools are catering to some 80,000 students. Besides, six other schools (Kendriya Vidyalya/Navodya Vidyalya/Air Force School) take care of 7,600 students in the Union Territory of Chandigarh.

Adding to this, UT Finance-cum-Education Secretary VK Singh said, “So far, we have opened 3 smart schools and 8 more such schools would be operational in the near future.

“He said 1.5 lakh students are getting education in Government schools and at present we have 11 smart class rooms and we need nine more smart schools. Recently, we have appointed 650 teachers but still need more teaching staff. For this, we have sent a proposal to the Centre to sanction more posts to meet the requirement,” he added.
