Scholars for Change - Round III, 2016
Online Internship for Creating “Learning Projects”

Calling college students to co-create elementary curriculum

If you have a school background in science and math, and want to volunteer to design learning projects for children studying in Classes 6 to 8 in government elementary schools, here is your chance. You can join the third round of Scholars for Change, 2016, an Online Internship project of the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, which aims at creating “learning projects” in Hindi/ Gujarati/ Marathi. What you will get is the satisfaction of having contributed to the education of underprivileged children, and an internship experience that will force you to think about social change through education. 

This is not a campus internship. You will work from your respective places, and on satisfactory completion of the online internship, we will reward you with certificates of appreciation. Your content’s authorship will remain with you, and you will have to agree to make it open-access.


What is a Learning Project?

An activity for children that involves learning by doing, and an active exploration of real-world challenges and problems.


Elements

 The project will be framed around a question that both engages students and helps focus their inquiry.


 The project should motivate students to be creative and require them to collaborate in order to be successful.


 The project should engage students both mentally and physically.


 The project should involve doing in a creative and active manner, in order to achieve a defined learning objective.

All the best for this challenge. This is a voluntary activity, challenging you to help those children who do not have access to good content in their own languages. We are likely to invite the best contributors as interns at Educational Innovations Bank at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad during the winter of 2016.


• This is a student volunteer internship program, and there is no remuneration involved. No reimbursement of any costs incurred by the selected interns will be made.

• The Scholars for Change Team reserves the right to remove any intern from the program if his/her performance is not found up to the mark.

About Company

Young Teachers for change is a campaign of Education Innovation Bank at IIM Ahmedabad. This campaign seeks to give to underprivileged children access to high quality, interesting content in Science and Math, so that they can learn on their own, in their own language, with fun and play. The content will be made available through a forum for innovative teachers, www.teachersastransformers.org, and will be accessed through school computers or, if some children have access at home, through home computers. Teachers will also act as facilitators to topic, addressing any questions that children may have after viewing the content.
