Initial Training for teachers of Phase II schools – Bajhang
November 19, 2015 | Bajhang
OLE Nepal’s campaign to expand the access to quality education in remote far western region of Nepal took another successful step. The second phase of the laptop program in Bajhang started with the basic training for newly selected thirteen schools. We had previously implemented the laptop program in ten schools in Bajhang. All the schools are selected in recommendation by District Education Office (DEO) after detailed study of the potential schools conducted by DEO officials, OLE Nepal staff, and World Food Programme (WFP) Sub-Office personnel. The project schools in Bajhang are part of the School Meals Program run by WFP in partnership with the Ministry of Education.
The team members from OLE Nepal conducted seven-day training for sixty-four teachers in Chainpur, a headquarter of Bajhang district. The training program held in January aimed to familiarize the teachers with E–Paati (XO Laptops) and its functions along with highlighting the importance of integrating digital learning educational resources within their teaching-learning process.
The training program received good support from government personnel. Mr. Moti Lal Sharma, a District Education Officer inaugurated and concluded the training program with positive notes. Moreover, Assistant DEO, Madan Kumar Thapa and school supervisors were also present in the training program, encouraging the participants.
Following the program, XO laptops were handed over to the respective schools so they can integrate this new approach to learning without any delay. OLE Nepal volunteers will be spending approximately ten weeks at different schools, providing first-hand assistance to the teachers and students in integrating this teaching-learning process in their classrooms.
