HP India announced today that it would be setting up 2000 digital classrooms in government and government-aided schools across 17 states as part of its HP ALFA initiative. These classrooms will be accessible to students of Classes 9 to 12 and will help enhance digital learning opportunities. The initiative is aligned with the Government of India’s New Education Policy (NEP) – 2020 vision and goals.

What will be available in the digital classrooms?

HP will fund the capital expenditure required to equip each classroom with technology, including multi-function printers, webcams, a laptop for teachers, smart TVs, android boxes, and an internet dongle for connectivity.

Implementation will be managed by HP’s NGO partner NIIT Foundation with active support from other corporations, corporate foundations, and NGOs as part of their CSR initiatives.

The project has three primary objectives: ensuring that students make the most out of digital content and e-learning tools, offering teacher training sessions to empower them to use technology in their classrooms, and partnering with private content providers to use vernacular languages across select locations.

The HP Alfa (Accessible Learning for All) Project is implemented in phases. The first phase focuses on working with corporates and corporate foundations, as well as government and government-aided schools that have senior classes (Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12) in the following states: Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Daman and Diu, Delhi/NCR, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Odisha, West Bengal and Jharkhand.
