New round of pre-school dig­i­tal ed­u­ca­tion drive

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

A new round of the three-year plan for Shang­hai pre-school ed­u­ca­tion will start in 2019, mark­ing the ar­rival of the 2.0 era of the in­forma­ti­za­tion in preschool ed­u­ca­tion, Xin­min Evening News re­ported Thurs­day.

Cur­rently, Shang­hai has built up an ap­pli­ca­tion clus­ter which has as­sem­bled the in­for­ma­tion of lo­cal kinder­gartens and im­proved the man­age­ment in th­ese schools. Over 20 lo­cal kinder­gartens across the city have been in­volved in tri­als to ex­plore in­no­va­tions in in­for­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies con­cern­ing kin­der­garten man­age­ment.

In th­ese kinder­gartens, chil­dren live a dig­i­tal life. For ex­am­ple, a tiny elec­tronic card can be used as a door badge and help record the body tem­per­a­ture, din­ing and med­i­cal sta­tus of stu­dents. Chil­dren can also make elec­tronic books by them­selves.
