8th Standard hone their presentation skills!

Our 8th standard students are getting more tech-savvy and confident by the day, after just four months of getting to use computers.  A couple of weeks ago girls got to spend a long time working on their first ever PowerPoint presentations. After making a presentation on ‘my favourite hero and heroine’, the next computer literacy task for our girls was to work on a small research project.

Girls already had some basic ideas about how to do internet research, and seemed more organised and focused on preparing their project. Each girl chose a unique topic, such as Savitribai Phule, Agriculture in India,  Save the Girl Child, Sikhism, Agriculture in India, Food in Maharashtra, Dr. Manmohan Singh, Gujrat, Taj Mahal, etc. This time, they were able to present much more confidently.

The objective of the lesson was achieved– the girls became well versed with Microsoft PowerPoint, improved their presentation skills and became more confident about presentations like this.

Education plays an indivisible role in our lives. It grows us, develops us and transforms us into a better human being. Though the quality of education each individual gets should not vary significantly. After all, quality education should be a right and not a privilege. I find myself fortunate enough to get an opportunity of working with with Avasara Leadership Fellows. It is an NGO inspired to develop leadership potential of India's brightest young women. This blog is to share my experiences in education (most of which are experiments in education) which make me grow as a teacher.
