Improving education quality and access through E-Pustakalaya

Following our belief that by providing freely accessible high-quality interactive teaching-learning materials along with an education-centered electronic library, we would be on our way in a major way towards addressing the problems of quality, access, and disparity in education, OLE Nepal ventured into the E-Pustakalaya project in 2008.

Teacher Training and Deployment

OLE Nepal conducted a seven-day training on technology-integrated education to 20 teachers from three schools in Doti from August 27 to September 2. The training focused primarily on the use of technology in education through the means of E-Paath and E-Pustakalaya to raise the quality of education that students receive, and to equip teachers with the skills necessary to integrate technology in their classroom teaching process through a carefully designed training program that covered topics on IT literacy, learning theories, classroom management with hands-on activities such as doing activities on laptops, preparing lesson plans, and practice teaching sessions using laptops.

Local Voices

These came up during a community interaction with the parents of the school in August, 2012) A mother - My kids used to tell me what they read in the E-Pustakalaya. After a while we parents usually dismissed them when they tried to tell stories that they had read, as we were busy with our work. I have realized that when we do this, our kids stop telling us what they have learned and stop sharing their views. Read more
