Tablet based E-learning

Under the RTE act Door Step School has enrolled over 1200 children this academic year. Nearly 600 of these children are enrolled in age appropriate classes. In the absence of support classes (bridge classes), they find it difficult to cope with school curriculum. To strengthen their basics, Door Step School in collaboration with Rotary club has provided the children a self e-learning tablet. The tablets were distributed by Mr. Kulbir Dodd from Rotary Club.

Children can learn the Marathi Alphabet at their own pace. Their learning levels will be monitored by DSS field staff.
