Yesterday, we launched – for the second time after the successful pilot started in 2016 – the first out of three modules around Digital knowledge for a new group of anganwadi teachers in the rural surroundings of Attappadi (close to Coimbatore, South India) Twenty women participated with a huge interest in gaining digital knowledge. How to use a tablet, creating an own email address, joining the existing closed Facebook group for anganwadi teachers of the same region – these were the main topics in the first module.
The training helps anganwadi teachers to connect amongst each other and to ICDS, to exchange creative ideas and experiences, to share knowledge – be it on child care or health related issues.
But also for the personal development the fact to know what digital skills can mean is a huge advantage.
We enjoyed a lot to work with the women. And I’m pretty sure that the women did so, too.
Looking forward to communicating with them, seeing their learning steps and to building on their experiences and needs for the next training unit!
