Bangalore, April 15: Cisco on Thursday, April 14 announced the first pilot project for Inclusive Growth architecture, deploying specialised remote intervention teaching for two government prematriculation social welfare boys hostels in Shimoga district of Karnataka.

To enable its implementation, the state government has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Cisco, a company statement said.

The project will be on a public-private partnership model, where Cisco will deploy its solution and maintain it as a service that includes remote access and support. About 450 sixth to 10th standard students in the two hostels at Vidyanagar and Shikaripura will receive intervention training in English, Math, Social Sciences and Science.

Sessions would be conducted after class. Children's Lovecastles Trust, an NGO that specialises in pedagogy and providing access to quality teaching for remote government schools using technology will deliver these training sessions.

Since the participants of a cloud can choose services they desire, it is granular. Based on needs, services can easily be modular. Since the technology is focused on delivering customised and personalised solutions, it becomes measurable.

Cisco''s experience with Project Samudaya, an undertaking to work with the state Government to rehabilitate flood affected communities in Karnataka, propelled it to look at self sustaining methods to deliver education services ubiquitously.

As part of Project Samudaya, about 11 schools were networked to successfully impart remote education to 1500 students, such as quality education and healthcare, the release said.
