  • Digital Literacy

    Digital skills are critical for jobs and social inclusion in a ‘connected world’.CLT India lodges a community space within its campus in Jakkur, Bengaluru. Digital Literacy Program was launched in March, 2018 and has kept it open for the local community.

  • Scholarship

    CLT recognises students that have the potential for higher studies and supports them with scholarships.


  • Art Class Activity

    CLT’s latest offering, an art bonanza for kids of standard 5th - 8th standard provides a perfect platform for young artists to spark their imagination, unleash creativity & enhance their skill.

e-Patashale

To address the challenge of teacher shortage and the lack of subject matter expertise, specifically in rural India, CLT designs digital STEM tools for learners and practitioners so children could still have access to endless opportunities.

CLT e-Patashale

While Education Technology was making its way mainly to high-end private schools about a decade ago, CLT,on the other hand, was deeply immersed in understanding the challenges of teacher shortage and its direct impact of missed learning opportunities for children. Thus, CLT e-Patashale was conceptualized,to bring about a transformation in rural classrooms.


The strategy was to build a scalable and replicable model where the master-teachers would design innovative pedagogy for digital STEM for the local practitioners and technology would be leveraged to deliver them to remote areas. The entire program architecture was built around what ‘Access’ translated to in the context of underserved communities, which further meant that the resources had to be in many regional languages; technology had to be robust yet affordable; teachers could be easily ‘upskilled’;and content could be accessed without the internet.


Today, we have a repository of 15,000+ videos in 4 regional languages, 2,000+ digital workbooks for teachers, 81,600+ teachers upskilled, having impacted 2.7 million students in 12,600+ classrooms learning from e-Patashale STEM.


State and District level governments, corporates, NGOs and local communities - have made the model sustainable.

Stem Experiental Learning

CLT recognises that experiential learning is equally important to supplement the classroom learning. In addition to the CLT e-Patashale learning labs, it also conducts workshops with volunteers to develop STEM learning kits which are then distributed to government schools.
So far, more than 10,000 volunteer hours have been utilised to deliver 4,000 STEM kits to schools.
