Happy New Year! The first numeracy webinar in 2015 will discuss an early grade mathematics program from a non-governmental organization in Karnataka, India.
The Akshara Foundation was established in 2000, and works with the Education Department of the Government of Karnataka and the Department of Women and Child Welfare in India to supplement existing primary school and pre-primary school programs to improve learning outcomes and student enrollment and retention. Over the past five years, the foundation has been working on early grade mathematics programs. It has successfully developed teacher training programs and materials and raised community awareness on the importance of math education.
Join K. Vaijayanti for this webinar, who will be presenting the Foundation’s early grade mathematics approach. She will describe how the programs were developed, how they worked with the state Government of Karnataka, and discuss results from their intervention.
K. Vaijayanti heads the research and evaluation team at the Akshara Foundation. She has an applied economics background from Centre for Development Studies of Jawaharlal Nehru University and extensive policy research experience in elementary education from conceptualization to implementation.
We invite participants to comment and ask questions during the discussion which follows the presentation.
