New ICT-integrated classrooms in Lalitpur
Lalitpur | November – December 2021:
OLE Nepal launched ICT integrated teaching-learning program at three new schools in Lalitpur. Shree Mahalaxmi Secondary School in Nakhipot, Shree Shanti Vidhyashram Secondary School in Patan, and Shree Shramjeet Kishor Secondary School in Lakhusi are now equipped with an offline digital library network set up with Raspberry Pi computers, which sufficient devices for each student in the largest class size.
Our team completed a three-day teacher training program for the teachers of all three schools to launch the program. The training was designed to help the teachers develop skills in integrating technology and digital learning resources in the classroom.
Participants were trained on the integrated approach to teaching learning in the classrooms with the use of OLE Nepal’s E-Pustakalaya and E-Paath, as well as technical aspects of the program. The presentations, hands-on activities, practice teaching, and planning exercises are all geared toward assisting teachers in seamlessly integrating digital learning materials into their everyday classroom instruction.
The hands-on training program for teachers was held at their respective schools after our technical team completed the full setup of computer labs. At Shree Shramjeet Kishor Secondary School, 10 teachers attended the training that took place on October 24 – 26, 2021. 19 teachers from Shree Shanti Vidhyashram Secondary School attended the training program on October 27 – 29, 2021. At Shree Mahalaxmi Secondary School the training was conducted on November 29 – December 1, 2021, where 17 teachers participated in the three-day event.
A total of 115 Raspberry Pi computers have been installed in the three program schools. OLE Nepal helped set up the new computer labs in partnership with KDDI Foundation, Japan and in close coordination with Lalitpur Metropolitan City Office.
