ONE MORE DAY ON TESTING!


Being encouraged by their tutor, four other boys came forward to do the practical test on “video making”.

Soon after their tutor arrived, the four boys sat in front of the pc and started to perform the test one after the other. They had their written notes in hand and with little guidance from their tutor they made videos out of their own creativity. The children enjoyed doing the videos on their own.

And finally, the boys (who performed the test) and their peers were delighted to see the handiwork. They received heartfelt appreciation from their tutor for their interest, participation and of course for the good work. The class concluded after the announcement of test for the girls the following week.

Skill test

This weekend computer class started with the usual enthusiasm. To test what the children have learnt so far, their tutor had announced a practical test on the subject “video editing.”

A boy named Ganesh, was very much excited to attend the test. He is one among the 8 children who learn video editing. Having the written notes as guidelines he was asked to do make a video and edit it. According to Ebi, Ganesh performed the test well – the video had a professional touch. His performance revealed the hidden skills and his interest to learn new things. The children were so happy to see the video made by Ganesh.

After the test, the children were taught more on video editing. The 7 children who did not perform the test were encouraged by their tutor who gave them the confidence to attend the test the following week. Due to power cut the tutor was unable to continue to teach the kids and thus the class came to an end.
