CLT designs low cost digital STEM content for school curriculum to enhance the classroom environment and improve learning outcomes. Currently, this education content is designed for Science, Math and English for Grades V to X and is used for teacher mediation through media like televisions,
projectors, tablets and even phones. The content is currently available in
English, Hindi and Kannada, and is aligned to the NCERT curriculum, which
closely matches all state board curricula. The content is being developed in Marathi. The e-Patashale content is delivered through
partnerships with other organizations in over 5,000 government classrooms in rural Karnataka, reaching out to 500,000 children.
Most Indian children attend rural state funded schools and they manifest problems of teacher attendance, ability and motivation that can be partially addressed through technology aided learning. This provides for an economical solution to the teacher-shortage challenge that leverages the best teaching practices of the urban qualified teachers, who develop content for e-Patashale, to be implemented in rural schools. Teachers integrate the digital content into their blackboard teaching and lesson plans. It makes learning engaging for students, helps with recapitulations of key highlights, and is also used as bridge course material for drop outs. Students themselves use this content for self-learning in the absence of a teacher.
CLT partners with Corporate and NGOs for infrastructure, solar energy solutions and implementation. CLT also undertakes turnkey projects. .
The entire content sits on this new proprietary app developed by CLT. In the background, the entire operation is tracked by a light-to-run data analytics mechanism - which brings back real time information to partners who opt in. At their desks, all Partners are now able to track the way schools are ‘consuming’ the content stating the duration of use, date and time and the location. We intend to build on this information that will further lead into research on how the specific schools have performed over the academic year.
