Quality Schools Program
The digital classrooms project is presented in three steps:
- Teachers receive half of the equipment from LG and are trained on how to use it.
- After teachers have passed training, students begin their digital literacy training with specialised
curriculum from Microsoft.
- Once students pass the digital literacy course, the other half of the equipment is given to the schools to
enhance its education.
Each institution is given access to an offline eLibrary from Open Learning Exchange (OLE) Nepal that is comprised of 8,000+ eBooks, thousands of informational videos, access to Wikipedia and a digitized version of Nepal’s curriculum.
Throughout the process, Chaudhary Foundation also hosts various skill development programs that prioritize female student participation. In addition, improving Nepal’s digital skills will also allow separated family members and friends stay in touch through social media platforms and other methods of digital communication.
QSP envisions a digitally integrated classroom for all students to encourage innovation, promote IT skills and contribute to the overall development of its students and the country. With the completion of 15 schools, QSP is actively strengthening teachers in rural Nepal.
To date, over 70 desktop computers, 20 laptops, 10 TVs and 10 projectors have been provided.
