The Winners of the Contest for 2018 are:
- The main aim of the project funded is to set up Science Learning Labs in 8 Govt. Schools in District of Davangere, Karnataka.
These 8 schools are located in strategic position and they will function as nodal centers for the neighboring schools to borrow these equipment for demonstration in their own schools. Each such nodal school with learning corner will cater to TLM needs of five to six neighboring schools. We propose to provide 43 very important TLMs for each corner. These models are large models and hence the activities conducted with them can be observed by a group of 15-20 children at a time. All the models will be provided with the proper description, clarity regarding the concept it elucidates along with suitable training for the teachers to use them. A Resource Person (RP) from Deenabandhu will keep track of this and will coordinate with these schools. He will also be responsible guide the teachers regarding the effective use of these TLMs.
- Coaching for School Success program aims to supplement and support in building a strong cohort of coaches in the participating schools and the region at large. In addition to conducting training, focus would be more on the in-school support and coaching.
The programme is spread across 8 months and is delivered in 4 phases.
The workshops focus on enhancing self-awareness and enabling them to reflect on the values and relationship with their colleagues and community at large , on effective teaching – learning practices, creating a interesting and engaging classroom environment, on building institutional capacity for fostering teacher learning across the school.
During the in-school training phase, TTF facilitators visit schools to conduct demo sessions, extend lesson-planning support to school heads, coordinators in the school, shadow them during the coaching process and offer feedback, suggestions and ideas for improvement.
