Thiruvananthapuram: Independent software-based e-language labs will be installed in schools as a part of the General Education Department's ‘E-Cube English’ project. This follows previous projects like Hi-tech school and Hi-tech lab projects.
The language labs will help the students to attain proficiency in English based on the present curriculum and learning process.
Kerala Infrastructure and Technology for Education (KITE) has developed the software used in the e-language labs. The labs will have four levels of content for students from classes one to seven in the first phase.
Students can record audio and videos, edit and explore computer-game like features through this software.
It also includes a special module for headmasters and a teaching module for teachers to support each student after analysing the improvement in learning.
Minister V Sivankutty will inaugurate the E-cube English e-language lab project as a part of the government’s 100-day programme in a function at Thiruvananthapuram on Friday.
The software uses the WiFi facility on laptops.
KITE CEO Anwar Sadath informed that the software will be installed on 1.2 lakh laptops in schools. The software allows students to read and listen to stories and watch animations. E-language labs also have the facility that allows students to prepare worksheets and submit it online.
