Residents support schools in Baitadi
June 2016 | Baitadi
Our ‘Teaching with Technology’ Residents, Ms. Shikha Dhakal and Ms. Anjana Shrestha have completed second round support to 15 program schools in Baitadi. During their visit from May 2 to June 18, the residents spent 2-4 days in each school to assist teachers and students in integrating digital resources. Since the new academic year had just started, they assisted teachers to prepare the yearly plan for laptop integrated classes. The Residents also guided the teachers in preparing lesson plans, observed laptop integrated classes, and provided feedback to teachers.
The Residents have observed project school teachers using laptops to teach their students since the project was launched. They’ve reported improvements in program implementation by teachers. With regular practice, most have eased into integrated teaching-learning approach.
Apart from pedagogical support, the Residents provided technical assistance related to the laptops, digital library servers and school network at the school. They also attended district level coordination meetings with World Food Program’s field staff and the School Meals Programme’s partner organizations. These periodic meetings are aimed to help partner organizations share regular program updates and find ways to collaborate among partners.
The third round of residents support will be continuing right after the first week of August, when the schools resume after the summer break.
