Twenty schools initiate new approach to teaching
Year 2015 |
OLE Nepal’s campaign to provide quality education to the students of Far-western Region is now expanding to twenty new schools. A field visit to Bajhang carried out after the massive earthquake in Nepal was conducted without any irregularities. Teachers of newly selected schools for the phase III of Bajhang Laptop Program received orientation on the new approach to teaching and learning through digital learning resources.
Orientation program was carried out in four designated areas; Janachetana Primary School, Rayal, Atapali Resource Center, Kafalseri, Durga Higher Secondary School, Talkot and District Education Office (DEO) in the presence of officials from District Education Office (DEO). Total of sixty participants from different schools representing School Management Committee (SMC) and Parents Teachers Association (PTA) were present. The main aim of program was to explain and discuss the role of OLE Nepal and inform important role of the schools for effective implementation and sustainability of the program. Later, Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was also signed between OLE Nepal and respective schools.
OLE Nepal will also carry out a seven-day basic training for the teachers during which they will be handed E-Paati (XO laptops) along with specially designed desks and solar power systems for smooth running of the program.
OLE Nepal in cooperation with UN World Food Program (WFP) and DEO of Bajhang has been running laptop based teaching learning program in 23 primary schools already. All the schools were selected in recommendation by DEO after detail study of the potential schools conducted by OLE Nepal staff, DEO officials and WFP sub-office personnel.
“I believe this is a right opportunity for our teachers to enhance their teaching skills with technology for the quality education.”
