GUWAHATI, Nov 17 - A two-day workshop titled �Developing Low Cost Teaching Learning Materials� was held at Shishu Sarothi here recently.
Meant for teachers and resource persons from Sarva Siksha Abhiyaan, Assam, the workshop was organised under the RAISE-NE (Regional Action on Inclusive Education in Northeast) project.
The RAISE-NE project was initiated in 2016 to complement the inclusive education component of the Sarva Siksha Assam. It is being implemented in five states of the region � Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura by 15 NGO partners.
�One of the core objectives of the project is improvement of the quality of education in the selected SSA schools. To achieve this objective teachers� training sessions are organised regularly. These training sessions include various aspects of inclusive education and awareness on rights and entitlements under the RTE Act, 2009 and the RPwD Act, 2016,� a Shishu Sarothi spokesperson said.
The workshop addressed the challenges faced by teachers and included practical sessions where teachers creatively used locally available materials and came up with teaching-learning materials which can be used for all children with and without disabilities in the classroom.
The teachers and SSA personnel termed it a unique initiative and stressed the need for more such workshops in future. Teaching-learning materials form an important aspect of classroom transactions. Teachers are always faced with this challenge of developing appropriate teaching-learning materials which can be used for all children for all subjects due to various reasons.
