In order to ensure that digital classrooms are effectively used to teach students, the Government of Andhra Pradesh is hiring interns who would impart digital literacy to teachers in the state.
As a part of the Government of Andhra Pradesh’s special initiative, AP Janmabhoomi, 1,000 recent graduates and college students will get an opportunity to intern with the government for a social cause through Internshala.
AP Janmabhoomi is promoting digital literacy among the government school teachers as a part of their plan to digitise all schools in the state. The selected interns will impart digital literacy to the teachers.
This is an opportunity for the youth to work for social development and network with the government officials.
In collaboration with Department of Municipal Administration, Andhra Pradesh and under the leadership of Jayaram Komati, Andhra Pradesh’s Special Representative to North America, AP Janmabhoomi is working to take forward the vision of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu Garu to digitise every school of Andhra Pradesh.
More on the report:
Under this initiative, more than 1500 government schools have been already digitised with help from NRI contribution
Now, to ensure that digital classrooms are effectively used to teach students, the Government of Andhra Pradesh is hiring interns who would impart digital literacy to teachers in these schools
About the initiative:
World’s largest internships and online trainings platform, Internshala is the Internship Partner for this initiative.
As a part of this programme, each intern will deliver a 30 hours digital literacy training to teachers at a government school in a district so that the teachers can effectively teach in the digitised classrooms that GoAP plans to provide.
On completion of their internship, the interns will receive a certificate and letter of recommendation. In addition to that, top performing interns will also get a certificate of merit from the Minister’s office.
Here’s what Jayaram Komati said:
“We are on a mission to impart Digital Literacy and uplift the lives of people in the remotest parts of Andhra Pradesh. Involving youth is essential for any state’s development and through their contribution we can make a greater impact while engaging them in social development. Through the collaboration with Internshala, we are looking to train teachers in the government schools of Andhra Pradesh.”
“Internshala’s mission is to connect the students and graduates with meaningful opportunities to help them in their career. But, through this association, we are helping them connect with a social cause as well. This is a very exciting chance for the students to intern directly with a state government while making a difference in the society,” Komati added.
“We are excited to partner with AP Janmabhoomi for their Digital Literacy Program and engage the youth of the state in a nation-building project,” said Sarvesh Agrawal, the founder and CEO, Internshala.
