Computer Aided Learning (CAL)

Process initiated
In the year 2003-04, the procurement of 2934 computers was made. These computers were installed in 517 Upper Primary schools. The distribution of computers was as mentioned below :
District level school - 10 computers + 1 printer
Block level school - 6 computers + 1 printer
Cluster level school - 5 computers + 1 printers
In this fashion, a computer lab was established in 25 district level, 224 block level and 268 cluster level schools.

After installation of computers, SSA Gujarat has tied up with INTEL company for the basic training of computer operating to teachers. In this programme, 517 Head masters were oriented for 1 day regarding the advantages of computer and its usage. Immediately after that 517 teachers were trained for 10 days regarding the fundaments of computes, MS Office, Internet etc. These 517 teachers were trained by the INTEL trainers. There after, as per TOR with INTEL, each of 517 teachers trained 10 more teachers for 10 days for same syllabi. As a result, 5687 teachers were fully prepared for the use of computers.
After completing the teachers training, the trained teachers started using Powerpoint for preparing the Lession card.

As a next activity, SSA Gujarat has tied up with Azim Premji Foundation for the development of content. A series of meetings were held at various level. Finally, 23 topics were identified, which were already prepared by foundation in Hindi and English medium. For giving the local touch to the software, the scripts of all 23 topics were re-written in Gujarati language with the help of 25 teachers. Finally, after the evaluation for 2-3 times, these 23 topics are ready. The same will be implemented in 517 schools in the coming academic session. For this the training of teachers will be completed in vacation period.
In the year 2004-05, 200 more cluster level schools were covered by procuring 1000 computers (5 computers + 1 printer per school). The above mentioned software will also be implemented in these 200 schools.

In the year 2005-06, the same programme has taken up in BOOT model. The agency has been identified who is responsible for installation/maintenance of hardware, development of educational content, teachers training, supply of stationeries etc. 500 schools have been covered in this programme.
