About the Project

The STEM-based Digital Equalizer project of AIF utilizes technology to bridge the digital divide in India and transform under-resourced schools into dynamic places to teach and learn through collaborative, project-based learning. The program works for imparting teachers’ training and sensitizing HMs to increase the learning outcomes of the students with focus on STEM subjects. In Rajasthan, we are working in 30 schools covering 105 teachers and 2940 students. 

 

The fulcrum of impact for the schooling ecosystem is enabling teachers to teach better, through access to engaging teaching-learning materials (TLMs) and adequate knowledge, to leverage techno-pedagogy and other creative teaching methods in the classroom, so as to make the overall experience more interesting and engaging for the students. It is the teacher who is the key to a transformative classroom experience for the child and everything else, including impact, flows from that.
