Tablets keep Christel House kids learning
Thanks to generous donor support, the Christel House global "Bridge the Divide" technology fund program has distributed hundreds of new computers with internet access for children at Christel House India (CHI) according to Jaison Mathew, CEO. With the new devices, students can now safely connect with teachers, classes and their homework assignments outside school.
The tablets, keyboards and data packets were distributed to grades 5-12 in Bangalore and grades 4-5 in Atal Nagar. Junior students should receive tablets by early November. “Our teachers can now ensure 100% attendance and participation for each subject and conduct online classes and assessments,” says Mathew. The IT team held training sessions to make sure students and parents understand how to correctly and safely use the technology. For the kids, the computers are an exciting and new interactive learning experience. “Learning at home was difficult. But with the virus, it became worse because my parents had no work,” says Rohan A., grade 12. “After receiving my new tablet, I can now continue learning without being distracted.
