Digital Learning at Unnayan Shiksha Kendra

New Computer Centre at USK
New Computer Centre at USK

Aasraa combines traditional teaching with modern technology. Our Computer Aided Learning program improvises and enhances the learning methodologies that we adopt for our slum and street children. We have noticed that access to easy, audio and visual learning tools has resulted in better retention of concepts and improved levels of understanding among children.

The relentless support from our donors like you have only strengthened the roots of our mission. As we step up for bigger goals in the coming new year, we consider it equally vital to review the impact of some of our recent introductions in our projects.

Unnayan Shiksha Kendra (USK), a school with limited resources, is located in the heart of one of Dehradun’s oldest and most crowded slum areas. Aasraa has been using the school premises to run one of its after school ‘Wings of Doon’ projects for the last 4 years.

The USK Wings project currently has an enrolment of 224 children (105 girls, 119 boys).

In April 2018, we set up a New Computer Centre at USK. Equipped with 15 computers, the centre has become an important medium to expose our children to technology and advanced learning tools. The classes in computer education are conducted every day. Basic concepts and applications of computer system are covered for classes 1-8.

In September 2018, we introduced the Tablets-based learning program at USK with 20 android tablets. The availability of affordable tablets has made it easier to use high quality e-learning materials with students while promoting self-paced learning. It brings about a transition towards a classroom being student-centric, with the teacher as a guide-by-the-side, in addition to his traditional roles.

The tablets are currently being used by students of class 5 and 6 for 1 hour every day. Hello English! App provides a simple lesson-based progress model where students solve various questions/quizzes that help them with everyday conversational English.

The impact of digital learning has undoubtedly added enormous value to our program. Children are grasping new concepts better through this audio-visual mode. Learning has become fun for them. Their grades are improving and we’re delighted to see our children, confident and smiling as they flaunt their wings of independence.

All is owed to our generous donors and well-wishers like you who have always rendered their valuable support to us. The unending encouragement we receive from you helps us strengthen our programs for our lovely children.
