Bihar Government partners with Microsoft to showcase a model of the school of future.


Patna. On the occasion of Bihar Diwas celebrations, marking the state's 100th anniversary, the Education Department of the Government of Bihar announced that it would partner with Microsoft Corporation India (pvt) ltd to implement a pilot program that would allow it to showcase a model of a school of the future. The initiative, which will commence in April 2012, through Microsoft's education partner, Educomp, will implement programs augmenting the scope of digital literacy and optimise the use of computers by students and teachers.  
The project, named "Window to the World" will aim to reach out to students, teachers and educational stakeholders to build capacity within limited budgets. Key aspects to the program include creating tech enabled classrooms in state schools which will scale up student participation, ICT-powered teacher evaluation and capacity building of stake holders in schools.

In addition, the pilot will also aim to provide computer aided learning opportunities for students of classes VIII- XII in government schools as well as introduce innovative platforms which will connect students and teachers from all around the world.

Five Government Secondary Schools of Bihar viz., Ghanshayam Girls High School (Patna), Taramuni Bhagwan Shah (Bhojpur), Ramanand Sharma Memorial Project School (Jehanabad), Rajkiyekrit High School (Nalanda), and Rajya Saposhit Girls High School (Vaishali) will participate in the initiative.
