The Teacher Foundation's efforts with the State Government is on to gain permission to conduct the training for 100-120 teachers in Yadgiri and Haveri using the technology platform. Since there is a delay in getting the permission, our team is in direct touch with the officials at the District Level for the training schedule. We are finalising our association with the technology platform to use their platform for training teachers in the selected districts.
All the modules required for training four batches of teachers of Yadgiri and Haveri are ready. These modules were customised to suit the technology platform.
We thank everyone for the support.
We identified Yadgiri and Haveri as two locations to start the Teacher Impact Project. We will train 100-120 teachers, from these locations. To start with we will do the training simultaneously at four centers, using technology. Talks are on with the Government to finalize these two locations and commence the training as a pilot. This is to ensure that we get the government buy in for the major part of the project.
As the technology service provider we initially identified did not work out, we had to go through the process of identifying a new technology platform. We now have Elucido, a similar synchronous platform, who is willing to provide us support to deliver the training.
The Teacher Foundation is in the process of identifying a new technology platform provider as the discussion between the previous provider and the Department of Education did not lead to installation of the platform. Currently, we are looking at a synchronous education technology platform that is not very hardware intensive so that it can be made easily available in schools. Once the Technology platform is finalised we are ready to roll out the project in Government Schools across Karnataka during the academic year 2015-16. The project focuses on enhancing teaching skills of Government teachers in Karnataka. We are trying to scale the reach using synchronous technology platform.
