Last Sunday (15-06-2014) my weekend destination was Dighalgram.
It was far away from City. In a busy Sunday schedule, I was very reluctant to go there. But somehow it was one of my good old friend who convinced me to go there. The agenda was to see the great works being done in rural education segment for the people having difficulties to have opportunity.
The school was Dighalgram Netaji Vidyapith High School (DNVHS), situated 9.5 Km away from Habra. Several people from different segment arrived there as a part of Annual General Meeting.
The initiative is by Future Society who aims to deliver affordable, efficient and effective educations for the people having no or limited education.
It was amazing experience where we found almost all teaching stuff including the Head Teacher was present in a holiday like Sunday in a government school for a non-profit social cause. The following implementations are already as a part of pilot project of Future Society:
- DESH – Digitally Enabled Study Help
- qCard – qCard is basically an effective assessment methodology using an application (developed by Microsoft TEM Research Team ) . qCard is a very effective means to implement Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) at schools.
NCERT (National Council Of Educational Research And Training) has invited the model school DNVHS at national seminar on 27th June in New Delhi for presenting for the project named ‘Development of reusable Learning Contents and interactive Student Response System with optimal information technology’.
We had seen all different classrooms and digital lessons already prepared on different subjects for various classes.
Overall wonderful experience and appreciate whole hearted efforts by the persons attached to it.
Let us all support and take part in this social cause in order to create it bigger, sustainable and scalable so that it can create a social revolution.
Big leap is on the way if all of us can join hands for our future generation.
