Due to the current pandemic situation, all schools are closed, and this may continue. SSLC examinations will be held in June. Class 10 students are preparing for the examination, and many need continuous support from teachers to prepare.

Most schools have created students WhatsApp groups to share learning resources. In many schools, teachers are conducting online classes for students. Some teachers may want to start online classes, if they can be guided and supported for doing this.

IT for Change, under the “Teachers Community of Learning” (TCOL) program would like to help Government and Government aided schools teachers to conduct online classes for their students. To make teachers comfortable to take online classes, we plan to conduct an on-line teacher’s workshop.

  3. All the workshop resources will be shared through KOER online repository
