In an initiative aimed at improving fluency in English, the education department has set up language labs in eight schools of the district on a pilot basis. The Gurugram district comprises four education blocks.
Ritu Chowdhary, district project coordinator, Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan — an overarching programme for school education extending from pre-school to class 12 — said the labs would be equipped with smart boards and touch- pad devices to enable teachers to teach through the use of information and communications technology (ICT).
“These labs, being set up for the first time, will be focused solely on improving students’ understanding of English.
The scope of the initiative will be expanded with time to cover more schools where the labs will be set up,” Chowdhary said.
