Two modules, namely Understanding Learning and Multiple Intelligence, are ready for delivery on the CEED Platform. Understanding Learning deals with exploring principles of brain-based learning in the context of using technology to teach. The Module on Multiple Intelligence deals with varying strategies while using a synchronus technology platfrom for teaching and learning. The modules dealing with pedagogy will be delivered using the CEED Platform and the training on the technical aspects of CEED Platform will be delivered face-to-face.
There has been a delay in getting approval from the State Government for installation of CEED Platform in the schools. We hope to finalize this by the end of November 2014 and start the first workshop in December 2014/January 2015.
We are in the final stage of formalizing our tie up with DSERT and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, which will allow us to reach out to teachers from 15 Districts in Karnataka, providing them with the required professional development support as proposed. Meanwhile, we had a dry run in July 2014, delivering one of our modules on the CEED Platform. The dry run allowed us to reflect on how we can seamlessly integrate technology as we provide continuing professional development support for teachers in a synchronous environment. We are modifying the modules based on our experience during the dry run.
The installation of the CEED Platform hardware in the government schools in 15 Districts across Karnataka is in progress at present. The project will be formally launched, as soon as the installation of the hardware is complete.
The Teacher Foundation is in the process of receiving funds from various donors for this project. We plan to commence the training programme for teachers and heads of Government Higher Prinary Schools in Northern Karnataka during the month of June - July 2014.
We met the State Project Director - Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan to discuss the project in a few disticts of Karnataka State. We have also initiated the process of collaboration with organisations for technology installation in different locations for training.
Internally, we have commenced the development of training modules for teachers and heads.
We will keep you posted on the programme !
