With the onset of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown, the nation came to a standstill. And while the other facets of life could still have some scope of resuscitation, lost time in one’s academic year is hardly reparable. The lockdown exposed several gaps in the education system and how integrating education with digitization is necessary, more so now than ever before.
Several regions in the state of Rajasthan faced issues due to the lockdown and students, by and large, were at a loss as they did not have any concrete structure in place to even get connected to the school remotely, much less carry on online.
Paying attention to the plight of students all over the state, the government of Rajasthan initiated the Shala Darpan Portal – an online platform for students to get connected to schools and carry on seamlessly with their education.
What is Shala Darpan?
Essentially, Shala Darpan is a database management portal that is where the government stores information about schools, educational offices, etc on an online platform. This information is updated constantly and even remotely. This portal even allows the integration with live data and is compiled in connection with both – primary and secondary education students and also of academic and non-academic staffs as well.
