Dwarka is one of the new emerging areas in West Delhi. The Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya is located close to urban slum in Delhi and has 4,000 girls. These girls come from marginalised families staying in Dwarka, Uttam Nagar and the neighbouring area. Their parents had meagre incomes and had limited capacities to create a learning environment at home. The school where the girls study has limited infrastructure. The student teacher ratio is 1:50.
The girls studying at Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya had limited access to technology at the school and at home. They generally referred to school library books to collect information for their projects. Unfortunately, the school library had obsolete books and limited editions of the books. Earlier the school teachers used traditional methods of teaching which did not inspire curiosity to study the subject further and explain abstract things and hard spots. As a result of all this the girls could never develop interest in science and technology. More and more girls were motivated to take humanities in senior secondary classes.
In this school, Plan has established three subject labs (Computer, Science and Maths), a children’s library and made paintings on the school wall to demonstrate how school buildings are used as learning aids by children and teachers. At the computer lab, Plan has provided 30 tailor-made laptops for children and four laptops for teachers. The children have access to facilities like a personalised computer along with the facility of group chat. To enrich the school resources, Plan has procured interesting and innovative teaching learning material developed by various agencies. The computer lab has access to children’s library.
The interactive materials available at the computer lab and subject labs provide hands-on experience to children and assist the teacher to explain difficult concepts with ease. The subject labs (Maths and Science) are connected with the computer lab for healthy cross learning. The teachers also have access to interactive white board to make the class environment lively. The assessment of the children is done regularly in a transparent manner and is fun for children.
