Armed with a $725,000 grant, the Asian Development Bank has translated mathematical materials from the non-profit KhanAcademy and MathCloud into Sinhala for Sri Lankan students. Forty schools across Sri Lanka went on trial a while ago with this new program, reportedly to determine whether e-learning should be integrated into mathematics lessons nationwide. It’s been a little over a week into the six-month trial.
“Boosting mathematics skills and critical thinking is essential in today’s modern world. Computer technologies can complement regular classroom teaching in a way that can bring everyone up to international levels in an individual way,” said Asian Development Bank (ADB) South Asia Department Director Sungsup Ra, in a statement to Lanka Business Online.
We at README think it’s quite fortuitous that this move is being made – e-learning, despite being a catchword in Sri Lanka at the moment, is an inevitable fixture in the future of education. Sites such as gurulk.com and edulanka.lk are gaining increasing traction with a wealth of practical content being posted online.
Of course, the biggest problem facing this service would be the lack of ICT penetration – namely, the lack of computing power and Internet access to areas that might benefit from this system the most. Nevertheless, this is one small step for a syllabus, but one giant leap for Sri Lankan education.
