As you might remember from the previous updates, EARtH foundation has started Digital Literacy program in January 2021 and the program has been running with full speed. We provided extra community teachers (on top of regular staff members) in the schools where Digital Literacy is being implemented. Each village is divided into multiple centers (typically 3 to 4). Each center will have 3 batches of students. Batches run from 9am to 11am, 11am to 1pm & 2pm to 4 pm. This way, each tablet is shared by 3 different kids. Each kid will have a profile on the tablet.
