The students, teachers, district administration and Eckovation are the drivers of change to deliver quality education at the doorstep of students who otherwise cannot even afford to avail it owing to the economic and locational constraints.
Abhyudaya Dhubri, an innovative model to ensure quality education to all the students using technology.
The general view about the Indian public school system with muddled infrastructure, shortage of staff and poor performance of students, the situation in Dhubri is even more complex. Most of the students come from BPL families and geographically remote riverine island regions, where they need to make a choice between going to school or go for daily wages to support their families livelihood. Many students just take admission to become beneficiaries of Government Schemes like Mid Day Meal, school uniforms, completely free education supported by required books and notebooks.
This has become the major reason for the poor ratio of number of students attending the school regularly to the number of students registered in schools and hence poor learning outcomes of students. However, with the support from Dhubri Deputy Commissioner, Anant Lal Gyani, Eckovation decided to start the small project, including only 10 schools in the pilot phase which had sufficient attendance so that a measurable impact could be made.
" We created a long list, based on data that we had on papers. Out of that, we studied 35 schools and finalised only 10 schools for the pilot. This was big challenge for Eckovation to ensure the reach of quality education to these students", Gyani said when contacted by Eastern Panorama.
Gyani further informed, that based on the field study and observations in the district with its unique socio-economic complexities, team prepared a solution for ensuring the Quality Education in the public schools of the district. This innovation and scalable is based on three key features: Assessment and continuous monitoring; Contextualised Learning and Multi-Platform Learning Facilities.
