Computer Aided Learning
Pratham is raising literacy standards to include
basic computer proficiency.
We teach kids technologies that help them get ahead.
Pratham’s Computer Aided Literacy program is school-based and designed for kids from 6-18 years old. About 40% of them are in secondary school. And each of Pratham’s centers serves about 500 students.
We have a two-pronged objective.
1) To improve children’s basic learning levels using information technology (IT)
2) Ensuring kids receive relevant and practical IT knowledge and skills
Our school-based computer labs draw over 90,000 kids.
Pratham’s Computer Aided Literacy program is spreading across the country and expanding within schools. Our program helps improve schools’ performance by encouraging them to adopt MIS and Database solutions. It also helps get teachers to adopt technology through training.
Students share the fees, but get a lot for their money.
Pratham charges kids a small fee every month that gets reinvested in the program. Kids get to attend the center for two hours every week. No more than two kids are stationed on each computer at a time, so they get plenty of experience on the computer. Their curriculum includes software developed by Pratham in a wide range of local languages. In addition to teaching IT skills, they help build reading and math skills.
