“You’ll have so many TV’s akka”. This was the first statement that Renuka made when she entered the G1 Lab, TAPMI. In the era when people of her age are developing online applications and games, she and her classmates did not know what a computer was. To cater to the academic needs of the children and to facilitate the practical learning experience the Social Endeavour Group, TAPMI conducted a computer training session on 3 Feb 2014 for the students of Rajiv Nagar School, near Manipal. Members from SEG visited the school and collected information regarding the needs of the students and their curriculum before the class was scheduled. All the prior sessions were conducted for class 9th and 10th. This was the first time that we conducted classes for class 8 students. 30 students of 8th grade attended this session. They  concepts were explained in Kannada by student volunteers and lots of real world examples were explained, to which the kids could easily relate. Topics like different components of a computer and their uses, getting familiar with the input devices, creation and deletion of folders and word documents etc were covered in the two hour session. In order to make it more effective only the basics were covered and more time was given to the children to practice. The session was backed up by a strong volunteer support. 15 volunteers including the SEG members helped the kids to learn the new concepts and also fostered a healthy learning environment. Language was no barrier in the process as the volunteers easily demonstrated to the students. The children were encouraged to ask questions and all the concepts were revised again. The children were provided with refreshments and towards the end of the session their feedback was collected. The joy of seeing them elated on encountering this new device was priceless. SEG thanks all its volunteers for their continuous and selfless support in this noble task.
