Vellore: IT employee sets up smart classroom for underprivileged children

October 20, 2020

When the Scottish scholar, James Pillans, invented chalkboard in the 1800s, little did he know that he had taken the first step towards a modern culture that defines education now. Perhaps that is what inspired Dinesh Saravanan to lend a hand in setting up a smart classroom for the underprivileged students of Government Adi Dravidar Welfare Primary School in Vellore.

The 31-year-old IT employee, probably, dreamt of bringing in a rapid transformation of moving technology into the classrooms. He told TNIE about how he used his network of friends on social media platforms to raise the funds. “I began working on the project early this year. The school authorities were quite pleased with the idea. Hence, they made all the necessary arrangements to get the project running smoothly,” he said.

Although the project work dragged on for around six months but Saravanan did not give up, and resumed the work last month.

Now, the classroom has been well equipped for both the students and teachers to go on a digital tour. Without much delay, Collector A Shanmuga Sundram inaugurated the classroom on last week Tuesday.
