In-school Training at Sindhuli and Makwanpur
Sindhuli and Makwanpur | July 2022
OLE Nepal visited three programs schools in Sindhuli and Makwanpur to conduct in-school teacher training and community meetings. The training was held from June 28 to July 6 at Janakalyan Basic School and Thakureswor Basic School in Sindhuli, and Manakamana Secondary School in Makawanpur.
Although all schools are using digital resources in their classroom activities and teaching-learning processes, the extent of their usage was different in each of them. We observed that the school computer rooms were well managed and the equipment had been maintained properly. Teachers who had not received prior training had also started integrating digital resources in their classrooms, having learned the methods and skills from their colleagues who had been trained by OLE Nepal. The teachers also held community meetings in their schools to touch base with each other and to discuss potential areas of improvement and collaboration to sustain the program.
Despite using digital resources in their classroom activities, we found out that all schools had been using E-Pustakalaya resources relatively less. We have feedback to the schools, suggesting that they follow the set routines for using digital learning resources in the classrooms. We also recommended that all teachers should use the resources instead of just a few of them, with an emphasis on preparing plans ahead of the lessons.
Our team also discussed with the teachers on how to effectively continue the program. We gave them suggestions to follow a set schedule and to keep the technical equipment functional.
