Panaji (Goa): In a bid to provide access to the highest quality digital education to all students irrespective of their backgrounds, the state of Goa today announced its partnership with India’s foremost AI-powered learning platform EMBIBE. As part of this tie-up, a total of 1 lakh+ students and 3,000+ educators from 594 state-run and aided schools will now be able to leverage the AI-powered platform for state-of-the-art content and adaptive learning.
This rollout is the first of EMBIBE’s state-wide public sector learning interventions, which is set to benefit over 40 million Indian students across 20 states during the 2023-24 academic year.
The Chief Minister of Goa, Mr Pramod Sawant, approved the two-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the partnership, which was signed by Directorate of Education Mr Shailesh Zingde, in the presence of State Project Director Mr S S Ghadi, Assistant Director-Planning Mr Manoj Sawaikar and Assistant Director, Academics, Mr Melvin D’Costa, and officials from EMBIBE. This tie-up comes close on the heels of Chief Minister Sawant’s recent announcement that the state would place a special focus on education and implement the New Education Policy (NEP) as part of its Budget.
Through its cutting-edge, patented product suite, EMBIBE will enhance learning experiences in Goa’s state-run and government-aided schools. Using EMBIBE, school teachers can now teach using state-of-the-art 3D content aligned to their textbooks and individually remedy every student’s performance using AI-led interventions. Advanced products like EMBIBE Lens and Virtual Lab Experiments will help make all curriculum textbooks smart textbooks overnight and turbocharge the application of science in every school.
The EMBIBE Student app will empower students to do their homework, with the app doubling up as their personal guide and showing them ways to improve. It will also permit students of public schools access to a full-fledged EdTech product earlier available at exorbitant prices through other companies in the market.
The EMBIBE product suite caters to the entire life cycle of students, teachers and parents and has been innovated to be accessible to all strata of schools irrespective of infrastructure.
Announcing the partnership’s launch, Mr S S Ghadi, State Project Director, remarked:
“We are thrilled to partner with EMBIBE to provide cutting-edge AI-based learning experiences to all of Goa’s students across state government and government-aided schools. EMBIBE has been a great support to our students and teachers even in the time of pandemic when teaching had to turn entirely digital. We are certain that EMBIBE will provide the necessary guidance to several students from lower socio-economic backgrounds and revolutionise the way our students learn with its 3D videos and high-resolution images. We believe this partnership will be a game-changer for education in the state of Goa and a significant step forward in our ongoing efforts to ensure that all our students have access to a world-class education.”
