For details of district programme click Assam_STF_Maths_District_Programme_2016
Objectives of the STF programme
The STF programme will aim to:
- Build the computer literacy skills for teachers
- Learning to use Geogebra for creating simulations in Algebra and Geometry
- How to use the internet as a learning resource - to create a resource library for my use and for the classroom and build digital resource libraries
- Use emails, MathsScience Subject Mailing Forum to communicate
- Develop digital literacy skills - email, internet search and downloading, geogebra, freemind
How is the programme done
A group of resource persons has been trained from 5 districts - Barpeta, Cachar, Dhemaji, Dhubri, Jorhat in two workshops.
In these workshops, the teachers have been introduced to how to access internet for their own learning, send email to other teachers and create resources using Libre Office Writer, Freemind and Geogebra. The first STF workshop for Mathematics was conducted from 19-01-2016 to 23-01-2016. The second STF workshop for Mathematics is being conducted from 02-02-2016 to 06-02-2016. The programme has been conducted in Assam Engineering Institute, Chanmari.
A technology support group has also been trained in these districts.
Together, these teachers will be training the district teachers.

Learning about Assam and learning Assamese
Assamese is written in the Assamese script, a version of the Bengali script, a syllabic alphabet in which all consonants have an inherent vowel which has two different pronunciations or which may be silent. The Assamese alphabet contains 11 symbols for vowels and 54 for consonant+vowel syllables plus other symbols. Click here to learn more about the Assamese alphabet.
