Teacher Trainng - The project ‘IT@Schools in Karnataka’ is one of the most significant part of ‘Technology Assisted Learning Programme’ (TALP), a cap name for all the technology assisted training programmes being carried out by the DSERT. TALP is being implemented from 2016-17 and intents to cover all Primary, Secondary & Pre-University Colleges in next 5 years. IT@Schools project intends to enable every primary, secondary and higher secondary schools’ teacher in ICT skills to not only use in their activities of facilitating the learning, but also to rejuvenate their professional attitudes and to create their own e-resources for their teaching-learning activities.
In the year 2016-17, DSERT in association with Ajim Premji Foundation (APF) has created task guides and 143 videos in Kannada utilizing some resource teachers based on the ‘ICT teacher curriculum’ prepared by CIET. These resources were utilized for Induction-1 training during 2016-17.
From 2017-18, the State is carrying out these training with the guidance and encouragement of CIET-NCERT, New Delhi. State has adopted the ICT Curriculum for Teachers prepared by CIET and using their ICT web portal called https://ictcurriculum.gov.in
This training programme contains 3 stages as follows:
Stage 1: Induction-1 a 10 days face to face training where they get used to basic skills of computer hardware, software, internet and office suits.
Stage 2: Refresher Course-1 a 10 days face to face training where they learn about various tools and apps for creating e-resources.
Stage 3: Refresher Course-2 a very short duration online training where they learn about cyber security and internet safety measures.
Each stage has Certification and after completing all these 3 stages and an eligibility test by CIET, teachers will be awarded a Diploma degree by CIET-NCERT, New Delhi called ‘Diploma in ICT in Education – Basic’.
Objectives of IT@Schools in Karnataka:
Methodology followed for training:
The training is in cascade mode. 11 members involved in the development of the content trained 136 MRPs (Master Resource Persons) throughout the State. These 136 MRPs gave training to teachers of selected schools’ teachers during 2016-17. The teachers were registered using Google Forms and then registered to ICT web portal https://ictcurriculum.gov.in by CSVs. After each day training ‘Day-wise Feedback’ were collected and at end of the training ‘Overall Feedback’ were collected by all trained teachers by using Google Forms. These were analyzed to prepare the reports. The videos created by APF in Kannada & English were also utilized.
Grading of e-portfolio submissions:
Induction-1 has 39 e-portfolio submissions which every trained teacher needs to complete and submit in the ICT portal. During 2019-20 these e-portfolio submissions of 7,676 trained MRPs and teachers were evaluated by 136 selected Mentors across the State. They Used secured Google sheets to record the scores of the teachers. After completing the grading work, these teachers were issued a joint certificate of GoK and CIET-NCERT, New Dehli for completing Induction-1 course. Similarly Refresher Course-1 has 32 e-portfolio submissions. The grading work of 4261 Induction-1 trained teachers’ and 5912 RC-1 trained teachers’ e-portfolio submissions is in progress. After successful completion of valuation these 10,173 teachers will get respective course completion certificates jointly by GoK and CIET-NCERT.

ICT Student Content-Year 1
Guided by the National Policy on ICT in School Education , the curriculum for students is designed to promote creativity, problem solving, and introduce students to the world of information and communication technologies with the specific purpose of widening their horizons and better informing them of choices in their career pursuits. In particular, the curriculum focuses on training the student to working with a variety of resources; learning to critically appraise information and resources; and making safe, productive, ethical and legal use of these resources a habit.
Students are also introduced to ICT outside the classroom context. Their curiosity and desire to learn will prompt them to more intensely participate in ICT activities. While introduction to social networks and blogging would become inevitable, making them aware of cyber bullying or other means of violating their rights should become an essential part of the training. While experimenting with hard and software the range of learning is very high. Channelising these tendencies and co-opting them into the teaching-learning process can help teachers create able support to the ICT system in the school.
ICT student course Year 1 as prescribed by NCERT-CIET is being implemented in the AY 2019-20.
