Use of technology helped students pursue both online, offline modes of learning
A new initiative launched in Rajasthan with appropriate use of technology has led to access of students to both online and offline modes of learning during COVID-19, with the availability of synchronised competency-based contents, supplemented by home visits of teachers. The innovative solution has also addressed the digital divide in the desert State.
The Aao Ghar Mein Seekhein (let’s learn at home) programme, started by the Education Department, has succeeded as a multi-modal approach to learning. It has enabled the government schools to create and disseminate contents, monitor the key metrics and carry out periodic assessment of students through ingenious models.
About 85 lakh students in the government schools across the State were confined to their homes for several months during the pandemic.
The programme ensured uninterrupted connection of students with the education system while minimising the anticipated learning losses before the schools reopened for IX to XII classes on September 1 with 50% attendance.
