Firoz, an assistant teacher at primary school, Chidawak in Bulandshahr, used technology to transform the way education is imparted in schools. “There were just 150 students when I joined the school on October 23, 2007. In 13 years, the strength has increased to 800. That’s because I started using technology in the classroom to make learning fun,” he said.
“The biggest challenge was to make education interesting for them. I started using my mobile phone and tablet to teach them rhymes and realised that they showed greater interest. As the attendance began to improve, I began using the audio-visual mode of communication to teach other subjects as well. Today, students don’t want to miss any class,” he said.
Presently, there are 18 teachers, including 3 para teachers, busy imparting quality education to students.
Lalita Pradeep, director, the State Institute of Educational Technology, UP said “Teachers with technological knowledge and application are an asset to the department. I congratulate Mr Firoz Khan. He has really made the State proud. I am sure this will motivate other teachers to infuse more of ICT in education”.
