BASIC COMPUTER SKILLS WORKSHOP
In this highly advanced and digital world, we conducted a unique computer workshop in collaboration with Calibre Zone that aims to instill precious tech values and knowledge in every individual, especially the underprivileged. It saw an overwhelming participation in this continuous 15 days of the workshop as it involved fascinating concepts like the parts of a computer, history of computers and many more, well explained using smart boards and multimedia. Series of explanations on computer tools were conducted followed by live experience. The information was presented in a fascinating manner and all of them interacted with the teachers to clear their doubts and establish a good tech foundation in them.
The participants enthusiastically took initiative to experiment different things on computer and inquisitively searched the software and the hardware to expand their knowledge in this field. We let them free to operate computers and, held a question-answer session that cleared any and all doubts if the activities left behind any such fascinating concepts. And quite amazingly, most of them were curious to know more and question ‘why’ and ‘how’ things work. We rejoice teaching these little souls with complete absence of any barriers; social, financial, technical and, they enjoy and are happy to hear from us.
The closing ceremony was graced by the presence of Mrs. Shammi Seth, Chief Manager at Syndicate Bank, MID Corporate. Our Chief Guest counselled and conveyed the importance of education to the children and their parents who attended the workshop. This was followed by felicitation of all participants with participation certificates as they showed keen interest in computers and willingness to learn and do something. Finally, all of us enjoyed at the end with personal interactions and expertise guidance to parents and students. We plan to hold such eminent programs for all those who may not have the opportunities, but truly instil the potential to make a change.
