Report Dec-05, 2013.

Learning Centre- Oasis, Bangalore.

Reporter- Anisha Devakumar (Intern)

The children at Oasis brag about having a very full and busy schedule. They have subjects ranging from Math, English, and Kannada to subjects like Moral Science and Computers.

Their teachers have a soft copy of all the notes required and with the help of an LCD projector; the students are walked through the curriculum in an interesting and engaging manner. The teachers also include pictures and other aids to increase the student’s intake and retention of information.

They are let off at 12.00 PM for lunch and after the break their classes resume. The children speak of having a fantastic time in the teacher’s absence, but they have no complaints about any of the teachers. They talk about them very respectfully. They however do not engage in games of any sort, one child said with a sigh.

One of the things that excite them the most is that almost every day the children are taken to an upstairs room filled with computers. They’re asked to boot up the computer, write an assignment with the help of Microsoft Word, save it for correction by the teachers and then they’re asked to log off and continue with the day’s activities. This exposure to new technology will definitely open up doors for them in the future. The kids seem playful and serious about their education at the same time.
