Samsung Smart School Inauguration in Varanasi
Samsung Smart School Inauguration – Samsung, India’s most admired brand, today launched Samsung Smart School, its flagship global citizenship initiative, at the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) school in Varanasi, offering children with digital learning possibilities and assisting them in improving their learning abilities. Samsung is also providing training to the school’s teachers in order to improve their interactive teaching methods.
Under Samsung’s vision of ‘Together for Tomorrow! Enabling People,’ the Samsung Smart School programme aims to develop tomorrow’s leaders by providing less-privileged students in India with access to the benefits of digital education and its own transformative innovations.
Samsung has put up two smart classrooms in JNV Varanasi as part of the programme, where students will be exposed to the newest digital learning infrastructure.

An 85-inch Samsung Flip interactive digital board replaces the traditional chalkboard in the classroom, making learning more dynamic and fun for kids. Students can engage in lectures, quizzes, classwork, and project work using the second Samsung Flip (55-inch), as well as the 40 Samsung Galaxy Tabs in each classroom for self-study. A printer, a server PC, a tablet charging station, and power backup are all available in the classrooms.
The new Samsung Smart School was inaugurated with the students of JNV Varanasi by Mr. Kaushal Raj Sharma, Varanasi District Magistrate and former JNV student, Mr. S.K. Maheshwari, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) Regional Office, Varanasi, Mr. Peter Rhee, Samsung India’s Deputy Managing Director, and Mr. Partha Ghosh.
“We are encouraged by Samsung’s initiatives to provide digital education to youngsters in Varanasi’s outlying areas. Mr. PK Singh, Principal, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Varanasi, said, “Samsung Smart School and the robust teacher training component of this initiative are already helping us improve learning processes for kids and will go a long way in bridging the digital gap.”
Samsung Smart School’s purpose is to improve students’ learning capacities as well as their knowledge of essential ideas in the classrooms by using interactive digital teaching methods that teachers have been educated in.
In its inaugural year, the Samsung Smart School initiative is being tested at ten JNV schools. Samsung Smart Schools have been established in JNV schools in Gwalior, Raipur, Udaipur, Kangra, Sambhalpur, Faridabad, Dehradun, Patna, and Dhanbad, in addition to JNV Varanasi. Many of these schools are found in rural areas surrounding major cities. Over 5,000 kids will be involved in the pilot, with 40% of them being girls, and 260 teachers will be trained. Around 500 of these students attend JNV Varanasi.
