Help 90,000 Students Learn Better Using Technology

by QuestAlliance


At Quest Alliance we believe in the power of harnessing digital technology to improve classroom learning. Our Anandshala programme works to create joyful learning environments to ensure that children stay, engage, and learn in school. Every aspect of the Anandshala programme is supported by innovative technologies to transform otherwise monotonous and passive classrooms into activity-based, interactive spaces for learning.

For the past 5 years, Anandshala has been collaborating with the state and district education department in Samastipur, Bihar, to address the issue of student absenteeism which leads to poor learning levels. We have seen positive impact with the dropout rate reducing from 33% to 8%. However, chronic absenteeism still remains, with the average attendance rate at 60%. Teachers have difficulty creating engaging classrooms due to inadequate capacity building and a lack of quality resources.


To combat poor learning levels and dropouts, Anandshala equips teachers with technology to create engaging classrooms. Digital lessons can be used as triggers for classroom learning activities such as creative writing, discussions and role plays to engage students and reinforce curriculum concepts. Training teachers to use the technology will ensure new teaching practices, shifting away from traditional chalk-and-talk methods to a more participatory, student-centered learning environment.

Long-Term Impact

Training teachers in the use of educational technology teachers will acquire knowledge and access quality resources to ensure student-friendly learning experiences. By creating a more engaging and active classroom environment, students will attend school more regularly, increase levels of engagement with school activities and show improvements in their communication and foundational skills. This in turn will prevent dropouts and ensure that children stay, engage, and learn in school.
