Dell India has recently launched a pan India initiative – named ‘Aarambh’ – aimed at enhancing and educating the usage of personal computer (PC) for education. The program aims at making students aware of the importance a personal computer in education. The year-long project aims to reach 1 million students and 100,000 teachers across 5,000 schools; and 200,000 parents in 75 cities across the country, Dell revealed in a statement.
The project is founded on the understanding that exposure to interactive methods of learning in the developmental years, most easily delivered by using a PC, contributes to the well-rounded growth of a student. Aarambh will involve three key audiences - students, teachers and parents - in a series of activities meant to build their confidence and familiarity with using the PC. However, the current household PC penetration in India has stagnated at anywhere between 9-10 percent - a number that needs severe correction and attention. In a bid to improve upon it, Dell Aarambh aspires to represent the use of PC learning to unlock potential for young students.
