Meghshala Trust, a not-for-profit organisation that promotes education technology and supports teacher training and value education systems across India prior to the outbreak of Covid-19, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Department of Education to train 600 teachers in East Garo Hills and West Khasi Hills.
Through the Covid lockdown, Megshala conducted orientation programmes for district functionaries to provide an overview of its app and the training.
Meghshala implemented e-learning classrooms in Karnataka, Manipur, Sikkim and Meghalaya and has reached 3,333 schools in Manipur and Karnataka and boasts of 10,175 users and 18,000 downloads on their free Meghshala app.
Meghshala’s digitized content with e-lessons empowers teachers to be instructional leaders in the classroom reaching out to the farthest communities in the Indian landscape. This partnership alone has impacted over two lakh students and 7,000-plus teachers across India.
Technology company Lenovo has collaborated with Meghshala and invested Rs 58 lakh for the project.
Since social distancing and lockdown measures began, Meghshala has seen more than 18,000 app downloads. The app has concept-based student models and curriculum-aligned, self-guided lessons.
Apart from that, there are short professional development modules for teachers, e-lessons by teachers for students’ use, and science experiments and math learning content available on the Meghshala YouTube channel.
