and then present it to Kannada medium schools as Chetan suggested.

Chetan: Yes. That would be super effective!!! Any expert in media area? Dealing with voice and videos?

10Chaya Chandra Acharya: I can teach using Skype. I got 4 computer in my school. Anyone can help me to do internet connection and i can ask volunteer to teach my children online. I am going weekly 3 days and teaching. I can teach maths and english (online and offline ) both
11Sir my main concern is volunteer. Atleast we can capture children who go to private school (in summer holiday ) to help government school children
12Rakesh Gowda: As i I have seen govt school children are not much eligible to take computer and learn through online.
Better option is to teach them offline i think. Sorry if i am wrong
13Chaya Chandra Acharya: Yes, I agree with you. But when i tried it some 3 to 4 (out of 25) children gave good response,
then all the children want to learn through it. Sir positive air gives good result.
14In my 7 years of teaching learning experience every now and then changing the methods of
teaching yields interest in children, that is what we should do
15Chaya Chandra Acharya: To get money i work 4 a tuition center. I prepare question paper, prepare quiz, correct and analyse the answer paper.
This is only half a day. Morning weekly 3 days i go to govt school and try to spend time with children and teach mainly small English skit. My son prepares it.
Evening 3 days a week I go to orphanage and teach maths exclusively.
Under the scheme of CSR i am presently trying to help infrastructure part of school. I did my b.ed recently at 45 year of age. I want to do a lot to society
My main motto is i should enjoy teaching and in turn children that's it
16Narasimha Prabhu: I stay in HSR layout,  Bangalore.  I am working on a project for providing an enabler kit to government school kids
The enabler kit would include a bag,  note books,  uniform etc,  talking to schools.
If anyone is interested,  you can call me or drop a message,  I need help in identifying the schools
17Chaya Chandra Acharya: Prabhu sir whether school should give money for kit.
Narasimha Prabhu MCE: No,  we are not expecting money from schools.
18Chaya Chandra Acharya: Ok. We do admission through out the year.
So we need to buy every now and then bag , books to children. That's why i am asking

28Yogish: Just added math section in our YouTube channel from subscription contents, mainly related to math.
Please suggest me if you know great math contents, especially the playlist or channels dedicated to only math so that I can create a math section for now.
Let's use this as our resource until we upload our own contents.,
Here is our YouTube channel: channel
29Yogish: Please note that contents are not mine. These are subscribed contents, I just categorized.
Teachers can help to create math contents in Kannada since we have lots of online content in English, but not in our local languages. Appreciate your help.

34Girish Mudigere: Can someone help to convert above to Excel. I am unable to follow steps....sorry

Girish Mudigere: Can someone help to convert above to Excel. I am unable to follow steps....sorry
35Yogish: I just compiled 100 points as few groups, please check. Please check latest post in our web site.
Yogish: I will try to finish all 400 points by tonight
36Krishna Prasad: Dear All if agreed shall we discuss few points a day and swing into action rather than reviewing all the point as a proposal...I don't know about all other learned people here i am getting confused, my hardisk\ ROM is limited.

Girish Mudigere: I agree KP..lets focus and act
37Yogish: Let's swing in to action of taking one point at a time. You can choose any one major topic and suggest the solution, and then to action
38Kiran Kumar: I feel we should involve in designing a module keeping one school in Mind that addresses the issues particular to that school. A module that covers all elements:
1. Infrastructure
2. Support
3. Academics
4. Enhancement of the school in to a model school

And then getting into action would be a good move.

Yogish: Yes, I agree Kiran. Great idea.
39Yogish: I think we can select big item # 4 because we got more comments and suggestion for that one. Also it is mostly non material based.
40Girish Mudigere: Question is.....all our teachers here need to be motivated supported encouraged .....if we take one school .....others importance is predominant.
Also our volunteers are in different places. Time frame?
41Kiran Kumar: Agreed. One school because the model needs to be established. Once we have a model in place, then the same can be replicated in other schools.

Let that model be dynamic enough to include individual schools' issues
42Kiran Kumar: Okay. Let me propose this. As Akhila has started her discussions with the SDMC of one school, let's keep that as a working model to complete the way in which the group can enhance the public school.
43Kiran: Let us provide all support to her and she can execute. We will also know what can work and what can't through her inputs.

Let the model have all the parameters: from infrastructure to intellectual development of students. A solution can be derived with her experience of dealing this act with one school.
44Girish Mudigere: My input Kiran:

May be I am wrong

But....lets parallel keep following development of each school where our teachers and volunteers are located

All common volunteers visit few schools

One school might come up as super model in three years
45Kiran Kumar: Considering a few facts: we are in Feb second half and march is a month of examinations. April10 - may end is summer holidays. There is not much volunteers could do now. Where ever the help or support is needed, we can do it. We can utilize this time to evolve the model.
46Yogish: I think I agree with Kiran and Girish. Akhila is already did good progress by contacting the gram panchayath for morning breakfast and we can keep that one running while working on other topics. Who knows she may come up with great solution for morning breakfast from panchayath. In that case we don't have to involve much in that activity.
47Girish Mudigere: During Vocation, We decorate, clean, beautify schools during vocation ....through all of us
48Girish Mudigere: KP and all....lets discuss on our working model toda
49Nagesh TK: I am doing one program for school, ಸಮುದಾಯ ಸಹಭಾಗಿತ್ವ, so swalpa busy astte
50Yogish: Go to and type any topic, for example Kerala or Mangalore or Bangalore or any essay topic. A blank text page will appear. Then hit any keys and continue to hit any keys......see what happens. My son showed this today. I think these type of online tools will kill kids innovation.
511. To approach panchayaths in other clusters as March is coming n budget discussions are on. (But it is not confirmed yet what time these suppliments will be given as in our schools milk is being given on alternative mornings, so the bananas, mixed kaalu usali, eggs, fruits, veg salads. ... can even be given in the evening before they start to home. )
52Akhila Vidyasandra: 2. Need to create awareness among
SDMCS , Panchayaths n teachers on this issue, hence preparation is must. So whoever is approaching them read Panchayath raj act for the roles n responsibilities of president and standing committees, RTE n take nutrition ppt too.
53Akhila Vidyasandra: I am waiting for the PPT please someone help me.
54Krishna Prasad: I am introducing Rohith to the group...he is a mechanical software engineer working at ESI and a prominent member in IT Milan cell at Bangalore......He has been volunteer, devotee donor to Sharada Devi Andhara Vikasa Kendra, and also have hands on experience working with NGOs
55Kiran Kumar: Hi prashanth, I spoke to Renuka and she said she has found a person to support her.
I have informed her that invade she requires any other support she could reach me.
