Google collaborated with Assam govt to promote digital growth

Google has signed an MoU with the Assam government in order to promote digital growth and development in the state. As part of the initiative, Google will collaborate with the Assam government’s Skill, Employment & Entrepreneurship Department (SEED) to strengthen their school digitization efforts with digital learning tools and solutions. Along with this, Google will also extend scholarships for Google Career Certificates to Assam’s youth in collaboration with the Assam Skill Development Mission (ASDM), TOI reported.
“This MOU is another step in our long collaboration with the Assam government to bring the benefits of digital tools and technology to communities across the State, and to assist its mission for technology-driven holistic development. We are pleased to support the Assam government in its most recent endeavor to thoughtfully integrate digital technologies into classrooms, modernizing education for the next generation, while also building awareness about online safety so children can reap the benefits of the internet,” said Google in a statement.
With this initiative Google will support digital learning in schools across Assam by offering access to its digital learning platform, Google Workspace for Education – Fundamentals, for all teachers and students in the State. The tech giant has also collaborated with ASDM to provide scholarships and wrap-around training to enable youth to become job-ready for the demand for digital talent. These learners will also be able to connect with employers who have an ongoing demand for these skills through a hiring pool that recognizes the certificates.
Lastly, Google will equip teachers with essential training to teach students the skills they need to be safe and smart online and guide them on their digital journeys with an interactive curriculum.
This is not the first time that the company has collaborated with the Assam government. Google has previously collaborated with the State Government to increase internet penetration across Assam and support the government’s efforts on women empowerment, internet safety, skill development and universal education.
