Bhubaneswar: Amid the forced shutdown of educational institutions due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Odisha government is working on a plan to push digital education in schools so that studies are not hampered in future.

School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash informed this on Monday.

The minister said the “unprecedented situation” has compelled the government to plan new ways to impart education to students by connecting teachers with students.

“Once the lockdown is over, we will devise a plan to promote digital education to deal effectively with such situation in future,” he said.

While many private educational institutions are taking to online classes to ensure smooth running of academic activities during the lockdown, government schools have not been able to do so due to unavailability of infrastructure.

Dash also informed that the officials concerned will distribute books among students for the next academic session soon after the situation normalises. Earlier, the distribution of books was supposed to be done on April 3.
