Nov 2015 - March 2016

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.

Launching pilot!

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:

  1. Curriculum Adaptation
  2. Evlauation Procedures
  3. Dealing with Multiple Disabilities
  4. Role of Parents and Communities in Inclusive Education 
  5. Disability-sepcific Inclusive Classroom Settings
  6. Enabling Assitive Technology 
  7. Adapted Physical Education 
  8. Vocational Education
  9. Home-based Education 

The modules are translated into Kannada so that we can reach out to teachers teaching in Kannada medium schools.

Update: Aug - Oct 2015

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.
