Kakkattil: A virtual classroom is being set up at home under the leadership of Samagra Shiksha Kerala for students with severe mobility impairments and those unable to attend school due to ailments. According to government figures, there are 8427 children with severe mobility impairments in the state. In the first phase of the project, 336 children will receive the benefits from the project.

Unable to attend classes or experience school life, these children are devoid of their future. At present, these students are receiving only home-based education provided by special educators from the BUDS Rehabilitation Centers (BRCs).

For many intellectually gifted children, one class per week conducted by BRC tutors is not enough. Through virtual classrooms, these children can attend classes virtually, ask questions to teachers and interact with peers like any other child in the class.

As part of this, a 360-degree camera and related materials will be installed. Further, a tablet will be provided to the students, along with internet facility. This way, the child can attend classes from home as per the timetable.
