Computer Assisted Learning
A project to improve the quality of elementary education for Government school children to engage them and enhance student learning.
What It Is
The program aims to improve the quality of elementary education for Government school children aged 6-14 years using interactive multimedia content.
Quest Alliance implemented a Computer-Assisted Learning (CAL) program for underprivileged children, in partnership with Azim Premji Foundation and Pratham, and supported by International Youth Foundation and Alcatel-Lucent Foundation.
What We Did
N-computing modelling was used to design the program, to reduce cost and power consumption, and launched in pilot schools in Bangalore and Mumbai.
Quest Alliance conducted a comprehensive independent evaluation exercise to capture the issues and challenges that needed to be addressed to optimize effectiveness of the CAL program in schools.
