Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani opened a command-and-control centre in Gandhinagar on Thursday to supervise the activities of the state's 54,000 government-run schools. Mr Rupani said Gujarat has become the first state in the country to come up with a real-time monitoring system for schools in his address after inaugurating the state-of-the-art "Command and Control Centre 2.0."
Senior authorities can monitor the implementation of numerous schemes and initiatives, such as home learning and periodic assessment, that the state government established to improve the quality of education, through this control room, according to an official statement. "There are about 54,000 schools in Gujarat, with 1.25 million pupils and 4 lakh teachers. This command centre will assist us in keeping track on the activities and performance of schools in rural areas. The centre would also be beneficial for communicating with teachers "According to the chief minister.
According to the government, the command centre is designed to give various district- and course-level statistics in addition to presenting real-time attendance of teachers and pupils at any school.
Mr Rupani held a brief talk with a few field personnel from the education department and heard their comments on the initiative, using the "video wall" function at the centre.
The command centre will be useful for monitoring student attendance, instructor preparation, and assessing students' performance and progress, according to Rupani, who added that the data received by the control room will be analysed using machine learning software and other data analysis tools.
