Monitoring and Technical Support Visit to Adarsha Saula Yubak School
Lalitpur | April 2022
OLE Nepal conducted a monitoring and technical support visit in Adarsha Saula Yubak Primary School, Bungamati. Our main objective was to review the computer integrated classes and provide feedback based on the performance, as a follow up to the training program we had conducted in February.
According to our observations, the Nepali Sign Language (NSL) E-Paath classes were being conducted effectively. The teachers were successfully integrating digital resources in their teaching-learning process, and three teachers were incorporating them on a regular basis. In the two classes used by students with hearing impairments, we also observed them to be reading Baal Paathmala books. We did an inspection of the equipment and found that they were being kept safely and that the staff were taking care of them using the resources they had at hand.
To aid with the NSL teaching process, the teachers had produced a few methods such as regularly keeping a record book and introducing classroom rules through charts with images.
They also had a process of logging any issues encountered in the E-Paaths and the NSL teaching process. They found that some signs used in our chapters are different from what they were familiar with.
As an outcome of the visit, we made some suggestions to the teachers to help them more in their teaching-learning process. We encouraged them to use digital resources as much as possible. Additionally, we advised them to teach each class separately when teaching from the computers as the E-Paath levels varied according to the grades and subjects.

Overall, we found that the teachers were very committed to and involved in the process. They shared that our E-Paath and other interactive activities have been especially helpful for them in the teaching-learning process. They added that our content has not only been supportive for the teachers, but it has motivated the students equally too. The students were now more willing to learn through their computers than in a regular classroom setting. They were grasping the materials quicker and doing better in general with interactive content than with just traditional lessons. Now, the teachers believe that they are finally shifting from a teacher-centered method to a child-centered method.
