E-Learning

In this perennially drought prone area, education has to be a focus area to bring about a meaningful change for an entire generation of children.

The quality of education in these interior villages, is abysmal, to say the least. Quality teachers are simply not available. Students passing out of such schools do not get an education, just a certificate. They are not able to leverage their years in school for any kind of productive work. Even engineers and post graduate students can't retain jobs for even a month as they just haven't learned anything in their classrooms!

 

Sundaram e-Class - A Quality e-Learning Package

We have partnered with Sundaram e-class, who are the pioneers and leaders in e-Learning in India, to provide e-Learning solutions to the schools of these villages. The best of highly trained teachers have been video recorded teaching the SSC syllabus from 1st to 10th Std in Marathi.

Sundaram e-Class is an e-learning package that plays the lessons on a 42 inch television in the classrooms. Pictures, Graphs, Maps, Videos, Animation etc. are all a part of the audio visual experience that the students learn through. All this makes a tremendous difference in the quality of teaching viz a teacher with no interest or expertise, who's there just for his salary. The teacher will remain in the class, now just as facilitator.

 

Results

We have set-up e-learning in 5 schools and plan cover all the 18 schools in these 15 villages. The most visible change yet due to e-learning is that the attendance has surged. The children feel like attending class; they feel like learning. They are more engrossed in class, especially the laggards. They are singing along with the poems on TV and answer questions asked by the software in unison. Another advantage of e-learning is that they understand concepts better now due to its audio-visual method of teaching. They are actually learning and not just pass classes.

Ways to support

We require computers to increase the digital literacy of the children. Old good to use computers will also be useful for this purpose.
