Students Participation:Students will be waiting always for the computer period to do something interesting and innovative. They will wait for the right instruction from the coordinator and then they will proceed. In these schools students are using the internet very sufficiently. As a result, they have done many projects regarding their subject with the help of computer applications like, MS Paint, MS Word and MS Power point. For this year Independence Day these two school students created some greetings in the computer using the above applications to wish there classmates and teachers differently.

Balamela:This is the event what all the school students and teachers love to do in their school campus. To organize this kind of Mela AIFT will give an idea to exhibit the student’s talents in their own style. To demonstrate their talents, students will utilize the computers in a very innovative way. “Balamela means Academic Fair organized by the students and for the students�. In this particular Mela students will prepare many creative models using the cardboard sheets and the materials which are available around them. AIFT will support the students whenever necessary but teachers will guide the students on how to explain the concept to others. The following word contains the complete report of Balamela.

Process of Balamela:STAFF MEETING:FSC District Coordinator conducted the staff meeting in these schools and made the teachers and students to understand the following points. 1. What is Balamela? 2. How does it look? 3. How to select the students? 4. How to give chance for students to select the activities? 5. What are the materials needed? 6. How to prepare the budget? 7. How to prepare the students? 8. How to inaugurate the Balamela Program? 9. Who will be the guest and participants? After the meeting, the teachers and students decided the date and time to conduct the Balamela in their school campus.


During this Balamela Program Mr. Chetan Garga visited Channasandra School and Mrs. Lopamudra visited Koodlu School from SUNGARD. Apart from them SDMC Members and parents were also presented in these schools to observe the creative work done by their children. They were so happy because their children explained the concepts in their own words to their classmates and also to them. But the teachers said that, most of the learning happened in this particular event and we are not able to imagine that, the students have prepared the activities by their own and participated very enthusiastically. So we are very thankful to AIFT and we do more than this for the next academic year.

Outcome of the Balamela Program: The immediate outcome of this BALAMELA program was;  Students learnt many technology skills.  Students learnt concepts which are more related to their curriculum.  All kind of intelligent students got the equal opportunity to participate and also to demonstrate their talent.  Students got great opportunity to teach their classmates.  This was the amazing chance for students to gather information from their friends, parents, text book, teachers and internet etc.,  Non DE School students were actively participated in this event and learnt the skills.


DE Contest This year the DE Contest topic was announced in the 1st week of November 2011. The topic and the main branches to focus were already given by AIFT itself. So here is the topic.

In these schools the students and teachers were so interested to participate in the contest but unfortunately the teachers had residential training and census work, so it took quite long time for students to finish the project with the proper guidance of their teachers. But they have used lot of videos and live pictures to give the life for the topic. Moreover Kudlu School won the second prize in the contest.


Special Report of Sungard School Introduction FSC is meant for implementation of innovative activities to make the teachers to integrate the technology in their teaching process where as for students to learn the concepts differently. So keeping all this in mind FSC team coordinators tried few innovative activities to achieve the objectives.

Innovative work o Content with picture This year all the students enjoyed preparing this content with pictures in computers with the help of internet. Most of the learning happened in this particular activity. This was the first activity started in this year.


Picture Resource Picture Resource means collection of pictures related to one particular lesson gathered by teachers with the help of internet. This is actually helped the teachers a lot while conducting their class in the computer lab. This is the second innovative work tried in these schools to increase the teacher’s interest in integration of technology.

o o o o o o

Subject oriented video resource Apart from the picture resource the school coordinators helped the teachers and students to collect the videos from internet. This also helped the teachers to convey their class very creatively as well as informatively.


DE Projects Along with the innovative activities, these school students learnt how to produce DE Projects with the proper guidance of their respective teachers. These projects helped the students to recall the contents that are gathered while preparing and consolidating the projects.

Moral Stories When the students learnt how to access computer and internet, they have prepared few moral stories in English. This helped the students to learn the usage of internet and made them to understand the story in English.


Nalikali Projects While conducting the teachers training in the school all the teachers used to do the projects related to their subject. But 1 to 3 rd STD teachers will not get much time to attend the computer training as well as to produce the projects. Somehow they are impressed by the projects done by other teachers and they also tempted to do the same. The small students helped their teachers to


produce the following projects. The picture which is inserted here is not taken from internet but it is captured by Digital Camera.

o

DE Period As a result of all the above innovative work done by the teachers and students, the DE period increased a lot than the last year. Most of the time teachers spent their valuable time in the computer lab itself to collect the data and also to transact their subject one or the other way.


Report in newspaper:The Balamela program which was conducted in Kudlu Government Higher Primary School was very impressive and published in newspaper like, “Kudlu Government Higher Primary School organized Balamela Program for students with the guidance of American India Foundation Trust and for this program Mr. Lalith Prasad from AIFT and Mrs. Lopa from SUNGARD was presented”.

Government officials visit to Kudlu School In the month of December 3 Government officials visited Kudlu School for inspection. They have also entered in the computer lab and surprised by watching student’s projects and lesson plan done the teachers. After their observation they have written very long report by appreciating the AIFT organization.

2nd time balamela organized in Channasandra School As usual the Government Higher Primary School Channasandra also organized the Balamela with more innovative activities. For this Mela Mrs. Shyamala (Cluster Resource Person, Education Department) was presented. She observed the activities very carefully and listed few activities which can explain to others. End of the day she came to office and appreciated AIFT and the school staff. But after a week she requested Mr. Nagaraj (Head Teacher) to conduct the same Balamela in the school campus. He agreed and organized the Mela once again. It was really shock for everybody because Mrs.


Shyamala brought 42 teachers from other Government and Aided Schools. It was a good program for them to observe the creative activities done by the students. While leaving the school they said, they surely conduct this program in their respective schools.

Leadership visit This leadership visit was planned by AIFT to make our AIFT Heads to understand and also to showcase what’s happening in FSC schools. For this program the agenda was prepared like the following;

Case studies Student Case Study:Computer can attract anybody at any time and computer is not specially made for a particular person, it is for everybody. You may think why these words are coming here? So here is the evident for that:This is the special case study about the student called Shobhitha. She is studying 8th STD in Chennasandra Govt Higher Primary School. She is not bright in studies, means even she is not able to identify the letters quickly, because she forgets soon. Her class teacher is always worried about her studies. Shobhitha love computer a lot and because of that she never get bored to attend the school. She learnt MS Paint and how to search for pictures in the internet in the past year. According to the School coordinators annual plan Ms. Venkatalakshmi started to teach Kannda typing. In the beginning she took time to learn typing, later she picked up well and now she can type very fast than other students. As a result not only her typing speed improved but now she can recognize all the alphabets and words quickly. Her class teacher said this is the great change happened in her student learning style.

Teacher Case Study:My name is Aruna RS I am working as an assistant teacher in Kudlu Govt Higher Primary School. I take science subject for all grade students. In the year 2010 AIFT provided 10 computers to our school with support of SUNGARD. For 2 months I did not get time to visit the computer lab and I did not know what facilities are provided. One day Mr. Manjunath (School Coordinator, AIFT) assist me to draw some pictures in the computer. For the first the time I did not do well but Mr. Manjunath appreciated my attempt. I started visiting regularly and learnt some of the applications like, MS


Paint, MS Word; Kannada typing etc., all my colleagues was doing the projects on their subject, so I also selected one of the science topics from 7th STD text book and prepared the project for whole lesson. After this Mr. Manjunath taught how to collect pictures from internet. According to his instruction I was searching for the pictures, immediately I saw the videos also in that particular web page. I approached Manjunath to download all videos and applied in my project. One fine day I made 7th STD students to sit in the computer lab and displayed the project. It was almost 33 slides with related pictures and videos. Actually I took this particular class for 3 periods continuously and all the students were so attentively observed and enjoyed that particular lesson. I asked few questions on the spot, I was shocked because they were able to recall and reply the concepts very clearly. I was amazed! According to my program of work I have to finish this lesson within 10 days but I did it in a 3 periods without skipping any single point. Now I understood how best we can utilize the computer in our subject.
