Greetings from The Teacher Foundation !
The Teacher Foundation is in touch with the Department Officials for the implementation of the programme. We discussed with Haveri and Yadgiri district officials about the programme and training schedule. Both the district officials are happy about the programme and they have assured to commence the programme in the month of June 2016. Team from the respective centre are in touch with the officials.
Since the schools were busy with exams, we were unable to conduct the pilot testing of the modules. We will choose the training modules in consultation with the department officials considering their requirements. Number of days of training will also depend on the department officials decision.
We should kick start the programme in the next quarter.
Will keep you posted.
Thanks for all the support.
We are gearing up to launch the project. We are focusing on reaching out to 100 teachers in Yadgiri and Haveri through this project. Yadgiri and Haveri are, as you know, two economically backward districts in North East karnataka. There has been unfortunate delays in terms of getting permission from the government and identifying a technology platform that works without major investments in hardware. This month we have identified a platform that works on open source operating systems and requires minimum hardware support. We are also in the process of finalizing the schedule with the education department. We will keep you posted once we finalize the schedule for the project.
We were able to obtain permission from the Department of Education (Yadgiri, Haveri and Chamaraj Nagar) to launch the project as a pilot project. The Teacher Foundation is considering the possibility of reaching out to 30 teachers from the Government Schools in each district identified. We are staring with the first set of workshops for the participating teachers during the third week of February.
We have developed nine modules based on which we will train the teachers from the three identified locations. Following are the modules:
The modules are translated into Kannada so that we can reach out to teachers teaching in Kannada medium schools.
