- The two-day face-to-face training workshop is being organized on 28th & 29th December, 2022 for teachers from 54 EMRS of 6 States.
- The training workshop includes a brief about early access to computer science education for tribal and other communities by way of exposing the students to simple computational skills all the way up to data-coding skills.
- Amazon Future Engineer (AFE)- CSR program aims to develop interest of students in exploring higher education and a fruitful career in computer science. It also provides teachers with necessary resources & support to create awareness about Computer Science & facilitate its learning.
National Education Society for Tribal Students (NESTS) will organize two-days’ face-to-face capacity building programme for EMRS teachers to implement Amazon Future Engineer Program(CSR Programme) in collaboration with the Learning Links Foundation (LLF).
Modern Information Technology shall enable early exposure to and bolster the preparedness of students for future careers in STEM education. Learning Links Foundation (LLF) is a philanthropic organization working for ‘Amazon Future Engineer Program’ that is unique in the area of computational skills training for students and teachers of EMRSs.
In phase 1, a two-day face-to-face training workshop is scheduled to be organized on 28th & 29th December 2022 at YMCA Auditorium, New Delhi. One of the objectives is that Amazon Future Engineer (AFE) Program shall be launched in around 54 EMRSs across 6 States namely, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan, and Telangana in schools having access to digital infrastructure including a computer lab and stable active internet connectivity. Course modules shall include Computer Science Fundamentals, Introduction to Coding, Logical Sequencing, Learning Loops, Block Programming using open secure source platforms like code.org, Class Chat Sessions to discuss tech space, different tech initiatives, etc.
The proposed training workshop for EMRS teachers shall serve as a stepping stone in creating awareness about the potential of Computer Science in students of EMRS as well as access to quality IT education in our schools.
