Dell, Tata ClassEdge to digitally empower education



Global tech firm Dell announced a collaboration with Tata ClassEdge- a technology-based learning solutions provider, aimed at meeting the common objective of taking digital training to schools and equipping teachers with the requisite knowledge of implementing technology in classrooms.

This collaboration expands the reach of Dell Aarambh through Tata ClassEdge network on educational institutions.

Dell's Aarambh initiative addresses the key roadblock faced by parents and teachers who, while realising the importance of the personal computer (PC) in education, want to continuously stay abreast with latest developments in use of PC for better learning. The collaboration will enable Dell Aarambh initiative to scale up its reach to the Tata ClassEdge school community, while the Dell Aarambh schools will gain from Tata ClassEdge's suite of e-learning solutions.

Tata ClassEdge's 'Principal Leadership Program' that aims to equip school principals with strategic thinking and leadership skills will also be extended to the school principals who are part of the existing Dell Aarambh schools.

"At a time when technology has become integral to our lives, it is essential that school should also be in sync with the way students and teachers interact outside the classroom. Technology in can transform the process with interactive teaching tools leading to improved learning outcomes. Our partnership with Dell will enable us to expand our reach to Dell Aarambh schools and introduce them to our comprehensive instructional solutions in teaching, learning, assessing and connecting communities," said Sanjay Radhakrishnan, Chief Commercial Officer, Tata ClassEdge.

Digital learning solutions from TATA ClassEdge are now used across 1,400 schools across India by more than 100,000 teachers. Dell Aarambh, now in its second year, has reached over 75,000 teachers across 4,000 schools in 79 cities.

Teachers have been trained in basic as well as advanced PC usability which they can incorporate easily into teaching learning experiences.
