Enabling Inclusive Classrooms For Learning During The Pandemic
Updated: Sep 11, 2020
With the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, schools across the globe are taking all measures to ensure continuity with respect to students educational learning programs. Virtual learning is the new normal and one of the key enablers that would determine the success of this virtual learning program is the availability of remote learning devices like laptops and tablets for students who are enrolled in the virtual program. State and District education department officials are taking all steps to ensure sufficient supply of devices, but still the supply is insufficient to meet the demand.
Keeping this challenge in mind, NAAM USA Board decided to launch a campaign and invite donors, supporters and well-wishers of NAAM USA to come forward and donate new, gently used or refurbished laptops and cash donations as an alternative to contribute such technology devices to school children with learning disabilities (being a core focus area for NAAM USA) in the region. Multiple news articles related to this technology supply shortage were also brought to the Board's attention in order to take immediate action. As a result, Board members reached to the Special Education department of such school districs in the State of Georgia - expressing the Board's interest to make relevant donations to the extent possible.
Some of the news articles related to this need are:
NAAM USA Board published the following flyer through our social media inviting well wishers to donate:
Inspite of all hardships being faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, We received reasonably good response (still receiving and will continue :-) ) from the public in the form of donations.
NAAM USA Board members made the first set of laptop donations on 5th Sept 2020 (Saturday) to the Special Needs department of City View Elementary (under Cobb County School District) in Mableton, GA. Our donations were received by Principal Dr. Barbara Swinney and her Administration officials in the presence of State Representative Erica Thomas.
We are optimistic to carry forward this donation campaign and thus reach out to maximum segments in need.
