HYSEA, with Nirmaan Organization as the Knowledge and implementation partner has initiated the Disruptive Digital Intervention (DDI) project to provide a motivating and encouraging environment for high school students from socio-economically marginalized sections of the society, to make them Digitally Literate and help nurture a culture of innovation. To further this objective, it is proposed to establish a Digital Lab at Government school (with supportive school managements and good student strength).
Most of the government schools/colleges under TSWREIS (Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institution Societies) lack with the support of Digital labs / infrastructure due to high costs / lack of support from the government.
Many of the meritorious students from these institutions have no access to digital technology due to which they are lacking with their technical skills and hence can’t progress in their careers and compete with the other students.
This is the major problem in all the residential schools / colleges. Hence if there would be a digital classroom in every school / college for these students, they would achieve any success in their life.
|HYSEA - NIRMAAN COMMITMENTS THROUGH SETUP OF DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE|
|S.No||Identified Problem in Govt School / College||Commitment||Impact Indicator|
|1||Many schools / colleges are not having computers. Hence, students do not have access/exposure to computers||1:1 computer-student ratio i.e., every student would get 15 minutes of time during the lab||Every Child will have good access to computer facility|
|2||In many colleges, computers become non-functional due to repairs in hardware or software||Annual Maintenance||Downtime of computers is minimal|
|3||Schools / Colleges, especially in rural areas, have frequent power cuts. This is one of the major ground level issues which is a hindrance for students learning.||A power backup (UPS/Inverter)||Maximum system utilization|
|4||Students are not able to utilize the online learning facilities. They are not able to use the internet for education purposes as a secondary source of learning.||A high-speed broadband internet connectivity; Projector/LED TV and audio facility||Online teaching through live streaming and recorded video lessons. Students using educational websites|
To support the underprivileged students from the TSWREIS schools / colleges in terms of Digital Lab / Infrastructure setup.
