Reimagining the gateway to learning and transforming education in a fast-changing digital world, Dell Technologies, today has announced the launch of ‘Yeh Hai Padhai 2.0’ to further advocate the importance of PC in education. In a country where PC adoption stands at 11%, this campaign is an engaging effort to underline the importance of PC as an enabler for the future of learning, especially with schools and colleges adopting hybrid learning at scale.
Conceptualized and developed by creative agency VMLY&R, this campaign is the larger umbrella of Dell’s annual #BackToSchool and #BackToCollege campaigns. The main ad film is set against the backdrop of a modern classroom, which showcases new ways of learning for students and teachers delivering impactful teaching in a fun manner. It emphasizes how students are making the most of their laptops to immerse themselves in the world of experiential learning as well as honing their talent for extracurricular activities. The TVC also showcases how Dell’s Inspiron 2-in-1 PCs play an integral role in actioning an idea that inspires students to innovate, collaborate and achieve their dreams.
Announcing the campaign, Mayuri Saikia, Director of Marketing (Consumer), Dell Technologies, India, said, “The education and learning sector has witnessed a major shift in the past two years, the PC especially has been indispensable in delivering it across all sections and ages. Right from music to extracurricular activities and to developing new hobbies, the PC has been at the center of schooling and training. The campaign focuses on the maturing and dynamic nature of learning. Immersive blended learning is the future and Dell Technologies is committed to leveraging its technology leadership for addressing the evolving needs of the education sector and the students.”
Mukund Olety, Chief Creative Officer, VMLY&R said, “In this all-kids campaign, we have portrayed how learning is changing and how our kids are learning all-new things in all-new ways. With schools moving to hybrid models, new platforms of learning popping up, and with subjects themselves ever-evolving, our kids have had to adapt fast.
