Through this new initiative Dell will engage with three key audiences — students, teachers and parents — in a series of activities meant to build their confidence and familiarity with using the PC.
The company also said that the year-long project aims to reach 1 million students and 100,000 teachers across 5,000 schools; and 200,000 parents in 75 cities across the country. The programme allows both parents and teachers to actively aid in the educational development of the child, while using a PC and create an encompassing ecosystem and supportive background for the child.
Additionally Aarambh also allows that parents and teachers, who are key influencer’s in a child’s formative years, can help their overall growth by participating in the adoption of PC technology for learning.
