The first iSchool initiative in Bhutan was launched at a school in Thimphu by Prime Minister Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay. The iSchool project was launched with the aim to making quality education accessible to all students, including those who belong to the remote areas of Bhutan. Appreciating the initiative, PM Lyonchhen said that the event is about private and government schools, the corporate sector and the multinational corporations working in Bhutan coming together and collaborating in harmony.
The project is expected to revolutionize the education system in Bhutan through an ICT-enabled learning environment. It will make quality education accessible to students across Bhutan as the initiative will be spread throughout the country and students would be able to interconnect and learn from each other.
