CHANDIGARH: For this group of 27 teachers from various government schools learning about the use of computers in classroom has acquired a new meaning.
Undergoing a five-day training module of Intel corporation as part of the new initiative to upgrade the skills of educators dealing with children from underprivileged sections, they are learning to involve the children through a community approach.
Said Gurdip Kumar, a teacher, ‘‘I knew about the use of computers but this programme has informed me about how to relate technology with the lives of children.
..We would ask them to identify a problem affecting their lives and then involve them in
finding solutions to it through the use of the internet. A project will be done by the students who will learn about the use of technology through the process.’’
