Computer and language labs in schools

Computer and language 
labs in schools

In a good initiative the Directorate of Primary Education (DPE) is going to establish computer and language labs in 509 government primary schools across the country to develop technological and language skills of selected students of those educational institutions. The government primary schools do not number 509, but 65000. Through the present project, the DPE wants to make the students of one school in each of the upazilas in the country familiarised with various computer applications and enhance their reading habits. By phases, it is hoped, that all primary schools will have their computer and language lab.

Dropout is still a major problem in Bangladesh’s schools, both at the primary as well as secondary level. In an effort to stop dropout, the relevant authorities took various steps. The latest in this regard is introducing free lunch to schools. Poverty is the main reason of dropout problem and for long it was suggested that in school if students get some basic training on computer that may help them to find a way to earn their livelihood. Training in computer, no doubt, would act as an added attraction for the students also. That is why all government schools up to secondary level, not just primary level, should have active computer and language labs.

But the computer and language labs must not be misused or remain closed to the students. In the past, the secondary schools as well as colleges, public or private, used to have well equipped science laboratories. Over time these science laboratories should have been richer. But the ground reality is that many schools that once had rich laboratories now do not have any laboratory at all.

So, the computer and language labs, even at the 509 primary schools, should have their proper use once these are installed. In the present-day world, there is no alternative to having certain computer skills for all. The present generation is rightly called on ICT generation. It is expected that students from poor families who mostly attend government primary schools in rural areas would be benefitted from the newly installed computer and language labs.
