The Teacher Foundation continues to develop the content for the CEED platform. All the modules developed are translated into Kannada. We have completed developing 6 modules - Understanding Learning; Multiple Intelligence; Active Learning; Collaborative Learning; Assessment and Designing Learning.
Installation of CEED platform in the districts of Karnataka is yet to take off due to issues of gaining permission from the Government of Karntaka. Cisco is pursuing it with the Government of Karnataka.
We can commence training with the Government teachers and heads only in the coming academic year ( 205-2016) as the schols are gearing up for the exams.

Head Review – Head review was also conducted post classroom observation on 15th Sep 2014. The school’s heads and TTF shared the positive changes which are evident in the school as an impact of the intervention. The school also shared a few challenges which it has been encountering now. e.g. resistance from senior teachers for writing lesson plans, attrition of trained teachers, etc.Ms Maya suggested Ms Selvi, the school head, to be firm on certain school related systems and processes so that these do not affect the positive changes which are evident from Std I to Std VII. Overall, the school was very happy with the WST program and they appreciated the WST team and TTF for their effort and support.WST intervention program will get over in Goodwill School in November 2014
Detailed Report for the period August 2014 - October 2014 is attached.
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.
