CDAC WORKSHOP ON ICT FOR SCHOOLS 2018

 

5 Mentors from Livingstone Foundation Hr. Sec. School attended a Half-Day Workshop on ICT for CBSE Schools conducted by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, Silchar at Hollotoli School, Dimapur.

The Workshop which started at 1:00 PM mainly dwelt on two Educational Portals and Apps developed by CDAC for reducing the curriculum load on students from Grade-IX to XII studying in CBSE Schools. The Workshop was attended by almost all the CBSE Schools from all over Nagaland including LFHSS. The Resource Persons on the occasion were Mr. Saurabh Bhattacharya and Angshuman Sinha from CDAC Silchar.

During the first session of the Workshop, the Educational App/Portal, OLABS or Online Labs for Schools was discussed in length wherein the teachers were also given a hands-on experience with the functioning of the App which could be downloaded free of cost from Google Play Store and Windows Store. OLABS provides students with the ease and convenience of conducting experiments and learning activities over the Internet. It has been developed to supplement the traditional Science Labs and bridge the constraints of time and geographical distances.

The second session of the Workshop was on E-BASTA which is another educational App developed by CDAC to lessen the burden of heavy books on students.  E-BASTA project provides a framework to make the school books accessible in digital form as e-books. Students have an option to download the e-books on their Tabs or Computers and utilize them in an easy format.

The subjects covered under the Workshop were Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and English. The Workshop got over at 3:40 PM. The Mentors from LFHSS who attended the Workshop included Mr. Bipul Sangma (Physics), Mrs. Pratikshya Basnet Thatal (Maths), Mr. Nabi Hassan (Chemistry), Ms. Imkonglemla Imchen (Biology) and Mr. Sanjeev Momin (English).
