Computer Aided Learning Centres (CALC)

Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, a flagship programme of Government of India for the promotion of Universalisation of Elementary Education, has several features that seek to improve the quality of elementary education. The physical spaces of schools can be transformed into learning spaces only if certain basic provisions are ensured. These provisions include structures to provide regular on site academic support to aid classroom instruction in which using of technology is a vital part.  Computer Assisted Learning Programme has been initiated under SSA to bring changes in classroom transaction through visual media which also enforces learning through evaluation embedded in it. 

Using computers for teaching and learning activities is effective.  The learning levels of children who are studying in CAL schools marked progress as per the feedback of field functionaries. Encouraged by the success of the programme, SSA extended the programme over the years.

Objectives of CAL:

  • To improve achievement levels of children, attract out-of-school children to schools and also improve the attendance rate.
  • To supplement the teaching instead of substituting the teachers.
  • To improve the quality of teaching learning process.
  • To focus on rural government school children by providing access to learning through modern technology by Integrating CAL with the school curriculum by dedicating 2 periods/week.

Implementation CALC in Karnataka.
