Two trainers from OLE Nepal visited the school to conduct the training for six teachers on digital learning using the Raspberry Pi computers and digital resources available in E-Pustakalaya. The objective of the training was to develop teachers’ skills and confidence in integrating technology and digital learning resources in classroom lessons. Teachers were introduced to the contents of the offline digital library server, and trained on the integration of technology in classrooms.
The training aimed to develop the teacher’s aptitude to seek references and include them in their lesson delivery. OLE Nepal’s trainers were also able to guide teachers on troubleshooting technical problems related to the different devices in their computer lab, as well as the pedagogical aspects.
