In an effort to contribute further to the “Digital India” initiative, chip-making giant Intel India on Friday launched an initiative to strengthen the use of technology in the country’s education ecosystem.
At an event jointly organised by Intel and the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here, the company said it is collaborating with leading device manufacturers, education digital content and publishers and education solution providers to build end-to-end solutions that promote the use of technology in India’s education sector.
“The initiative to create a comprehensive ecosystem is an endeavour to establish an accessible digital infrastructure that enables affordable solutions,” said Debjani Ghosh, managing director of Intel South Asia, in a statement.
As part of this collaboration, Intel has made available its “Intel Pentium Processor A1020” to leading device manufacturer partners.
The processor delivers power savings and is optimal for devices designed for running education applications in semi-urban and rural India.
Device manufacturers such as Acer, HP, Dell, Lenovo, Micromax, Datamini and iBall will continue to provide a spectrum of Intel architecture-based devices, the company informed.
Intel will help deploy management solutions for schools, classrooms, content and learning and also manage student information systems.
