Learning during CoVID 19.

GHARE SHIKHIYE
Joyful learning at home!

All schools in the (Gujarat) State have remained closed since the later half of March till date due to the COVID 19 Outbreak. It is also very likely that the schools will not be able to resume normal working and operations in the near future.

Now, technically as the schools have moved into the new academic cycle, the Gujarat government, along with the use of digital and satellite technology has creatively begun to use print medium as well to be able to reach out to as many children as possible—with or without the digital infrastructure! Ghare Shikhiye, an initiative of GCERT and SSA Gujarat  is providing Self Learning Modules for learners of grades 1 to 8 at their doorsteps! Monthly package of self-learning modules are being distributed to the government school children, beginning June 2020. The pack of Self-learning modules for the month of June 2020, has already reached children and teachers! These downloadable PDF formatted Self-Learning Modules are available at https://gcert.gujarat.gov.in/gcert/resourcebank/ghare-shikhie.htm

ITOWE Development Foundation (www.itowe.in) is providing material development support to the Government in this initiative; and will soon pilot an intensive field trial of this approach and strategy in selected locations of Ahmedabad/Gujarat. Towards these activities, ITOWE is being supported by UNICEF, Gujarat.
