UNESCO and Dell Technologies to launch a new education programme in Digital Technology

The US-based Dell Technologies has launched "Dell Aarambh". This is a computer-based initiative to help teachers, parents and schools to bring in technology-based content to classrooms.

Key Points:

  • Dell has collaborated with the Unesco Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (UNESCO-MGIEP) to roll out the programme.
  • This agreement was signed at the "TECH 2019" which was organised on 10th December 2019.
  • This program will train over 85,000 teachers in 4,530 schools in 80 cities, to the next level, where they would get access to FramerSpace, an artificial intelligence-based initiative.
  • Teachers across Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka will be trained in the first year of engagement. It will later be expanded to other states in phases.
  • A 200-hour training on FramerSpace is divided into familiarisation training followed by online tutoring and Dell would induct 4,000 teachers over 12 months
