Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani

New Delhi: Gujarat Chief Minister, Vijay Rupani, on Thursday inaugurated a command-and-control centre in Gandhinagar to monitor the activities of over 54,000 government-run schools in the state. In his address after inaugurating the state-of-the-art “Command and Control Centre 2.0”, Rupani said Gujarat has become the first state in the country to come up with a real-time monitoring system for schools. Through this control room, senior officials can monitor the implementation of various schemes and initiatives, such as home learning and periodic assessment, which were launched by the state government to improve the quality of education, an official release stated.

The chief minister said, “Gujarat has over 54,000 schools, 1.25 students and 4 lakh, teachers. This command centre will help us monitor the activities and performance of schools located in remote areas. The centre will be useful for communicating with teachers as well.”

As per the government report, apart from showing real-time attendance of teachers and students of any school, the command centre is also equipped to provide various district-wise and course-wise data.

Using the “video wall” feature at the centre, Rupani held a brief discussion with a few field staff of the education department and received their feedback about the project, and also spoke to a primary school teacher from the Anand district.

How will the command centre function:

The command centre will prove to be an important tool in monitoring the attendance of students, preparedness of teachers and for assessment of performance and progress of students. The data received by the control room will be analysed by machine learning software and other data analysis tools.
