Bangalore School Goes Hi Tech

I was amazed to read that a Bangalore based school has decided to go hi-tech and adopt technology to teach kids. Kamla Bhatt has an interesting post about the Padma Sheshadri Bala Bhavan or the PSBB school that has earned the distinction of being the first fully digital and wireless enabled school. The school even has plasma TVs installed in each classroom with rich multimedia programs directly being beamed to kids. The principal of the school who has spear headed this project is known to be quite tech-savvy with similar projects being attributed to her during her former stints at schools in Chennai. Quite an interesting read with Techtree too commenting on the school. On a more sombre note, the author notes that this might just be the panacea for the controversy surrounding the heavy school bags that Bangalore kids lug to their schools and back on a daily basis.
