“This is a mouse”. The Pega Teach For Change digital centre teacher was greeted by rolls of laughter as soon as he said this. “Does it run as well? Does it eat rice? Do cats chase it around?” Digital Centre Teachers have to deal with millions of such questions. They are, however, more than happy to entertain such irreverent queries, as they are paving the way to realize the vision of a digitised India, one school at a time.
Pega Teach For Change a CSR Program of Pegasystems India and Teach For Change has established 10 Digital Centres with full time trainers in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Majority of Indian children do not have access to Digital Literacy which is widening the Educational Inequality in India. These children are left behind and find it difficult to stand as equals in the society as they are not digitally literate. This is serious injustice. Every child should be provided equal opportunity to stand as equals in the society. Pega Teach For Change Digital Centres have been providing digital literacy to thousands of students and helping them participate in this digitised economy.
