The XO has now become a classroom tool for all teachers

November 30th, 2011

I am delighted to report the the XO laptops are now being used by nearly all our teachers in teaching of their regular classes. Children have also starteddoing activities such as music and artwhich were not possible for them before now. Screenshot_music

Children in Class 1 have progressed from TamTamMini to TamTamJam  and learning to make their own music using Drum kits, Strings, winds, concert, people and animals voice.

Tebla, violin and guitar are their favourite instruments.

 

 

There has been great progress in teaching maths too. Our teachersScreenshot_1_2 (4) have trained on the Khan Academy videos and have been using their new found techniques in the classroom.

From this week children in class 5, 6 and 7 are registering directly with Khan Academy online using their XO’s and willuse the on demand videos from Sal Khan to learn maths just like children in the Western World. If this works then we will have levelled the playing field for our students!

English projects are also being done on the write activity, see the write up below:
