Abstract

The study presented here is part of an extensive study conducted by IT for Change between 2015 and 2017, across 16 government schools in south Bengaluru. This paper discusses the findings from four of these schools. Through a discussion of two programmes, the paper shows how digital technology can be used effectively in the classroom to enhance the language competencies of students. The programmes were designed collaboratively with teachers. The study captures the opinion of four teachers, who were collaborative partners in the study. The paper concludes that appropriately designed digital tools enable students to learn a language and helps to foster collaboration and leadership qualities among them. This is a revised version of the paper presented at the seminar “Teachers in the Scenario of School Education”, held at Mysore in April 2018.
