With this IT solution, Dell aims at equipping students and teachers with a skill set required to compete in the twenty-first century's transforming economic and learning environment.
“Schools today are faced with tight budgets and varying degrees of technology and student learning abilities. A variety of specialised hardware, software, services and training can help them integrate technology in the overall learning experience and manage technology efficiently.
We need systems that are tailored to the needs of Indian students, not according to business systems and Dell with its focus on this segment, seems to understand the difference and geared to meet its needs," said Diptarup Chakraborti, Principal Research Analyst, Gartner.
Dell also launched the Dell Digital Schoolathon contest to give students across India a chance to win the Connected Classroom solution for their school.
"We've done our homework and listened to educators, policy makers and IT leaders about what they need to transform teaching and learning to provide these vital 21st century skills. We're applying our learning to designing technology solutions that help turn this collaborative vision into a reality with the Dell Connected Classroom," said Neeraj Gupta, General Manager for Public, Dell India.
Through its public division, Dell focuses on education, defence, healthcare and government. The division, which was created in Nov 2009, accounts for one-fourth of company's revenues.
