The vital role that technology plays in present-day education is undeniable. However, a large population of individuals have limited or no access to technology and thereby miss out on important educational content.
HP ALFA (Accessible Learning for All) Project is one such unique initiative launched by HP India to reduce this digital divide and empower students across Government and Government-aided schools with digital classrooms further improving their access to digital learning. The project is aligned to the work areas of Ministry of Education, Govt. of India especially the NEP-2020 vision, NETF and NDEAR goal. As part of the project HP India aims to set up over 2000 digital classrooms pan-India and each HP ALFA digital classrooms will contain digital screens, content device, computing device, printers and other equipment to integrate technology into learning.
The project will also conduct teacher-training programs in all schools to help them effectively use the training material and digital classrooms. This program also hopes to foster entrepreneurship among students of higher grades which will help them to begin their entrepreneurial journey. HP India has engaged with NIIT Foundation as NGO partner to help drive the project on ground and NCERT/CIET provided digital course content would be used for classroom learning.
