“We have established the digital classrooms in 484 colleges, 2,415 secondary schools and 2,929 primary schools in the division till June last,” said Nur-Ur-Rahman, Commissioner of Rajshahi division.
Besides, Sheikh Russell Digital Laboratories were established in 102 colleges, 375 secondary schools and 12 primary schools in order to boost students’ empowerment through using of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as well as the internet.

He added that education support is one of the 10 special initiatives of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Utmost emphasis was given to keep all the multimedia classrooms and other digital devices functional round the year so that the students can derive total benefits of those.
At present, some 706 upazila-based secondary schools are using multimedia classrooms in Rajshahi district. “We are hastening teaching-learning privileges side by side with preparing the teachers through imparting them with need-based training in these schools,” said Nasir Uddin, District Education Officer.
“We enjoy our classes with multimedia projection. We can see our topics on big screen. So, we can understand the subject-matters through projection easily than that of reading books,” said Tasnuva, a student of class eight in Shaheed Nader Ali Girls School and College at Baneshwar under Puthiya Upazila. Jhumur of class nine and Nusrat and Sadia of class ten echoed the same.
Ruhul Amin, Principal of the institution, said: “We have started using ICT in 2016. Since then, students attendance in the class became a hundred percent. All the students appear in classes spontaneously. Teaching-learning process becomes easy”.
A significant change has started taking place in the education sector by dint of successful promotion of digital technology benefiting teachers, students and others concerned in the region, he added.
More than 13.91 lakh primary students were brought under sub-stipend programme in the division. 717 underprivileged were given education allowance under Reaching out of School Children project. Physically challenged students were given assistive devices worth Taka 33.50 lakh.
More than 1.76 lakh students were brought under school feeding programme. Pre-primary classes have been launched in all schools for the age of under six babies. Each of the schools is given Taka 5,000 annually to facilitate babies to flourish their latent talents with developing their physical and mental growth.
Prof Saidur Rahman Khan, former Vice-chancellor of Rajshahi University, said the role of teachers is very vital to make the ICT for education programme a total success. Focus of the programme is to equip teachers with IT knowledge so that they can prepare multimedia teaching materials for the students.
Prof Rahman said education has become a technology-based version to adapt the rapidly changing 21 century. This programme in Bangladesh will make us more prepared to tap the changes into good.
