GyanTantra: Unique Digital Learning Innovation for the Grassroot

Education is a social good and implies that it has a positive impact on individuals and societies. Besides the fact that it provides ability to read & write, and a vehicle of empowerment, it is also an edifice that promotes growth and development in life eventually helping the nation grow and prosper.

When children are being robbed from enjoying their childhood and sometimes forced to play the role of an adult then there is something fundamentally wrong in the society. Children attempting to earn and avoiding academics with unfettered freedom to roam, loiter and spend paltry earnings complicates the already vulnerable situation of a child.

Literacy India reaches out such children, especially girls from underserved communities and provides tech-based learning opportunities. For more than 25 years, particularly on imparting primary education to children severely impacted due to various socio-economic reasons, has been the forte of Literacy India.   Literacy India’s robust education delivery solution, GyanTantra -Innovation on improving the Foundation using technology (www.gyantantra.org) is an child-centric, child friendly educational software that facilitates academic learning at a student friendly pace and accelerates the learning of foundational concepts.

 Project location and its background

Literacy India has established a primary level digital education programme at the “Raj Bhawan Free Primary School”, that was established in 1974 in Kolkata, West Bengal. This school is situated in the residential premises of Governor’s House with an aim to serve the children of the staff of Raj Bhawan. This co-education school has two sections - 1) Hindi Medium 2) Bengali Medium with a total enrolment of nearly 150-200 children. At present, this school caters to the children of Raj Bhawan staff and also the children of adjacent areas staying on the pavement or in shanties/ nearby slums covering areas including Dalhousie - BBD Bag, High Court, Stand Road, Decres Lane, Lal Bazar and Esplanade. The students study up to standard IV and later they join the nearby High School.

Before Literacy India introduced its GyanTantra – Digital Literacy Innovation Programme at Raj Bhawan School, the school was experiencing absenteeism and drop-out issues. A section of these students were involved in petty activities at nearby tea shops, vegetable vendors and street food stalls. Some would fish out coins, thrown by devotees, from the nearby the Ganges river-bed using a magnets or nets etc. It was clear that these children were missing out on regular schooling. The LI programme staff assessed problem, realised the need and implemented strategies to remedy the state of affairs.

The GyanTantra programme was introduced and children found tech-based education as an attractive and engaging method of schooling. This digital, multimedia self-learning academic initiative not only helped arrest the dropping out rate but has also enhanced the academic quotient of children.

The Programme Team of LI has successfully initiated its activities with a three-fold objective:

  • Curb drop-out and habitual absenteeism
  • Increase student’s participation
  • Provide tech-based quality education

Activities undertaken

  • Regular learning classes held at centre
  • Recruitment of facilitator (GyanTantra) to help the students.
  • Pre- Test, Mid Test have been conducted to monitor the academic enhancement
  • Regular monitoring by Programme staff to seek feedback and track the children
  • Regular Parent Teacher meeting to share and observe students’ progress

Pre -assessment has been conducted for each child. This included oral and written tests. The questions range from easy to grade level competencies. Apart from basic reading and arithmetic ability, it also measure a child’s ability to understand, express, think critically and solve problems.

Based on the results of the pre-test there was a substantial gap between what students are required to know at a certain age and what they actually do. Even school going children were at least two grades below the desired level of proficiency based on their grade-textbooks. In order to bridge this gap, to address the academic needs of students and help them come up to their age and grade appropriate level of academic understanding the following activities were conducted:

 Steps followed

Progress

Pre-Test The Pre- test was conducted as per the age and grade of each child.

Syllabus assigned & Regular Class room teaching 

 For each child, a specific syllabus has been assigned, based on his/ her pre-test. Special focus is put on subjects where the child is seen to be weak.

Practice Assignments

After completion of every topic, the teacher conducts Practice Assignments to ensure that there are no gaps. If gaps are found, the child goes through classes and practice once again.

Evaluation & Test

Periodic Tests along with Pre, Mid & Post are conducted to measure the learning outcomes of the students and plan for the next level of classes accordingly.

 Progress of Students: From Pre to Mid-Test

The Pre-Assessment was conducted at the Raj Bhawan School for 31 students. Some important findings of the assessment undertaken are as follows:

  • 4 Students secured D Grade in their Assessments
  • 7 Students secured C Grade in their Assessments
  • 15 students secured B Grade in their Assessments
  • Only 5 students secured A Grade in their Assessments

After almost 3 months a Mid Test was conducted for all the students. Some important findings of Mid-test revealed that:

  • The number of students in Grade A has increased from 5 to 19.  
  • The number of students in Grade B has decreased from 15 to 12 and reached in A grade
  • The number of students in Grade C has decreased from 7 to 0
  • The number of students in Grade D has decreased from 4 to 0.

 Achievements & Impacts:

  • Regular home visits and child tracking has improved the strength in schools.
  • Parent-teacher meeting helped in curbing the absenteeism among students.
  • Parents appreciated the activities and became proactive to enrol their wards for academics.
  • Logical thinking and analytical skills of students remarkably increased and students were able to link contents and descriptions to their benefit.
  • Communication skills and technological savviness grew among the students.

Stories of Change

Navya ( Name Changed) now becomes exceling in academics with support of Innovative Technology Interventions                  

Navya (Name Changed), daughter of Mahan  (Name Changed) and Anita (  Name Changed), lives with a younger sister at Babughat, Eden Garden Railway Station. They are staying at pavement in that area. Her father is a manual worker who loads the goods in a truck & her mother works as a maid in an office; their monthly income is 9000/-per month.

Navya studies in class IV at Raj Bhawan Free Primary School, Kolkata and hails from an underserved marginalised section. When she joined school she was academically weak and unable to read. Being a first in the family to attend a school, she could not bank upon her parents for any academic support. GyanTantra came to her rescue and she was able to develop interest in her studies and cleared her conceptual doubts. Soon she was able to read story books in Hindi and more than doubled her academic scores in all the subjects. She enjoys the computer enabled learning and is eager to attend school. She often shares that she aspires to be a teacher.

Project Activity in progress

Literacy India has been working with the poor rural and urban communities for more than two decades, where children with weak educational foundation are forced to follow their parents, irrespective of school session schedule. We have strongly advocated technology aided education and now its relevance is more than ever. It is only with technology and specially designed software program of 500 hours that vulnerable and underprivileged children can be brought up to speed, given the situation.

Gyantantra Digital Dost has successfully been implemented by us to ensure out-of-school children as well as school dropouts, students weak in academics to get basic education for their better future and accelerate the learning process. However, with education centers and schools being shut, these children need devices to continue to push against the despair of the situation. The marginal communities cannot afford mobile phones or laptops, and this is the community which needs the crutches of educational foundation the most – not just to survive such unprecedented situation but also to ensure that the progress made by the country does not slip away. The COVID 19 pandemic has impacted each one of us, the severity of which is yet to unfurl. As the world braces itself for what lies ahead, the Indian Government still struggling to ensure the security of the future generation. One of the key aspects, education – especially elementary education - is at a critical junction as experts worry that the progress made so far, has since suffered. The recent migrant crisis and the continuity of schools being shut is a major blow to the 427 million children in the country. But especially impacted are children above 6 years of age, a critical age to create a essential educational foundation.

Literacy India has a robust solution to meet this monumental challenge. Not only do we have an intelligent educational software which focuses on individual learning capacity but also serves as a resilient and patient ‘teacher’. We started the project using Google Classroom with the children of these communities. Students made trained in Google classroom, assigned worksheets, assignments, recreational projects where these children can be engaged under the guidance of teacher.

  Activities undertaken during the quarter: 

  • Community survey conducted to approach students and mobilize for online classes.
  • Teachers training for capacity building on usage of technology in education
  • Door to door Google classroom training for effective use of technology for the purpose of education and to bring the process on ease
  • Awareness session on Covid 19 to safeguard themselves against pandemic
  • Live Classes, developing assignments as per the level of students, sharing academic worksheets and online assessment to measure the students’ performance.
  • Classes at contact center in full swing the fill the learning loss.
  • Pre-Test ( Base-Line ) to Post Test( End-line) to ensure and access the learning level and improvement

Community Survey and Mobilization

 Most of the students enrolled are first-generation school goers. Their parents had smartphones but could not think of their usage for academic purpose. During lockdown, Literacy India teachers went for a community survey and approached the students and their parents and elaborated on the concept of a virtual classroom. Initially, the parents hesitated, but the teachers played their role efficiently and skilfully to bring students to the virtual classroom. Further, students were enrolled and provided training on the effective use of technology for education. They were trained in WhatsApp, Google Classroom & Google Meet to access the learning content.

Pre-test Evaluation 

The Pre-Assessment was conducted across the communities and each individual student participated in it. During the pre-assessment, we checked the existing knowledge of students and to what extent has the individual student progressed on the assigned syllabus. We categorically segregated the students “requiring improvement” and focused more on them to improve their learning gaps. 

Centre-wise Assessment of Topics (comparison of Baseline Data to End Line )  

To ensure students learn more meaningfully in the virtual classrooms, the academic team of Literacy India brought the concept of continuous evaluation to monitor the students learning level and take timely decisions in order to maximise a learners’ academic progress.  This process of evaluation was used for improving student’s achievement through detection and correction. It would detect child’s improvement areas and allow the teacher to discover specific learner’s academic gaps and provide them individual attention to enhance their academic learning levels.

 As a process , after completing a set of topics with students, the teacher conducted a test comprising of ten questions and evaluated children’s learning level, knowledge gained, and understanding developed for the topics taught. This helped the teacher to make a fair judgment on students' concentration level, attentiveness, understanding and retention about topics taught in the class.

Story of Change

Name- Keti ( Name changed) Location : Delhi

 Pre-Covid-19, half of the world’s children were already unable to read a simple text by the age of 10. School closures have deepened pre-existing learning disparities, within and among countries, due to inequities in access to technology

Keti ( name Changed)  Grade IV , 10 years old child among all who was also facing challenge to accomplish her academic proficiency as schools were closed  for long time.  She is 1st time school goers and shy by nature also.

Several common topics in language  both Hindi and English like  nouns, pronouns, verbs, synonyms, one-word substitutions, and punctuation, simple  passages reading and attempting questions was not able to attempt. Similarly in Arithmetic Addition, subtraction & multiplication.

She engaged in learning through the program and attempted day to day as per assigned syllabus and lesion plan. she started responding by assignment and teachers observed  her interest and improvement. The teacher then attempted to explain this by involving Keti in an activity in which she could freely participate and learn in an enjoyable way. She used coloured chart paper and cut it into a balloon shape. She arranged the balloons in a group by pasting them together. Three identical bunches were created. Post attempting the each topic of digital Module , She clearly grasped the concept & improvement measured.

She received 54 out of 100 on the mid-test after three months of enrolment and finally she scored 92 out of 100 on the Post-test. From the pre-test to the final exam, there was an 84 percent improvement. She has completed most of her  curriculum assigned as per her age.

This is what her teacher said “She made excellent progress in both her academics and overall her personal development.  She is very attentive we wish her all the  luck in future to be the best”

Established in 1996, Literacy India (LI) is a non-profit organization with the primary objective of providing quality education and skill training to under-served children and under-privileged women to empower and help them become self-reliant. To fulfil this objective, LI decided to build its programmatic approach on 4 pillars i.e. Education, Empowerment, Employability and Environment. These 4Es, like a beacon, help guide the organisation to bring about positive change in the lives of its target beneficiaries/ communities.

Literacy India has been advocating technology-aided education and enhancing digital skills for over two decades. In sync with the requirements of Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), Literacy India has pioneered the delivery of future skills training and engendering STEM aptitude among its students in an integrated education format. With the onset of 4IR the nature of jobs are changing, and so are the desired education and skill set this is also evident from the change in school curriculum as directed under the latest Education Policy by the Government of India i.e. NEP 2020.

The importance of an early interventions and introduction of NEP in the Middle and Elementary schools has been supported by a number of government and non-government reports suggesting that adopting a strong STEM background at an early age in the life of a student will encourage tech- empowered participation. This will help the country and its citizenry in reaping the early bird advantage as students proceed through middle, high school, and on to post-secondary education.

Literacy India has already set up Robotics &  Digital Labs in its schools and these laboratories serve as spaces that allow students to explore, experiment, tinker and create. Under the LI’s Future Skills project there are two component one, teaching fundamentals of coding Scratch, Python and second, creating Applications using MIT app inventor as well robotics introduced advanced Artificial Intelligence kit - WHALESBOT MODULE 2.0. This is introduced to the students with new components, sensors, processors, actuators etc. Programming software – SCRATCH is used for coding the Robots. Presentation on new Robotic Kit with videos were shown to the students like Gearing parts, structural parts, and appearance parts. Whales Bot Al Module 2 has more than 480 parts which function as gearing parts, structural parts, connectors, and appearance parts Children can build diverse teaching and competition projects upon these parts.These programs build competencies that allow individuals to solve complex problems in highly emergent contexts of action in a self-organized way and enable them to act successfully.
