World Vision India runs this education project with the Lions club of India to help educate 25,000 schoolgoing children from government and aided schools. We focus on the following outcomes as part of our approach –
1. Enhanced engagement experts along with teachers
2. Improved learning experience and outcomes among school children
3. Decreased dropout rates
4. Improved teacher engagement/satisfaction

A major component of this nationwide project is ICT4D. Technology is changing the way life functions. The project provides solutions to provide high quality learning opportunities to marginalized students. Technology has a lot of potential to improve education and when implemented cost-effectively, it can lead to sustainability.

WVI is facilitating digital classes to all children with interactive modules like videos and presentations. These visually attractive methods of teaching have influenced students who were struggling with the traditional method of teaching in a classroom. This kind of visual is both eye-catching and young students can easily relate with them now. It can also help the teachers to improve their work experience in ICT4D while increasing the quality of teaching. Digital class facilities have all these information in memory and presented during the time of class lectures and thus, the time saved is used for assessment and further improving the learning outcomes of children.

As of today the project is benefited to more than 3000 children in 4 cities in India. Plans are in place to cover 10 cities soon.
