Works of around 2,000 schools across the State uploaded on School Wiki portal
Digital magazines of about 2,000 schools in the State have been made available online, thanks to the Little KITEs initiative by the Kerala Infrastructure and Technology for Education (KITE).
The digital magazines were prepared and published by the schools during a workshop held last month as part of celebrating the birthday of the great story teller Vaikom Mohammed Basheer.
K. Anvar Sadath, vice chairman and executive director of KITE, said the digital magazines were arranged districtwise on the School Wiki portal www.schoolwiki.in.
The digital magazines can also be viewed from a designated link on the web portal www. dm18.kite.kerala.gov.in from Friday. Mr. Sadath said it was the first time in the country that digital school magazines were made available in a large scale on a public domain.
School Wiki is the largest content repository among all regional languages in the country. With 15,000 schools as members, it features the entire set of literary works presented by the State’s students in the School Kalotsavam since 2017.
The digital magazines will appear not only on the home page of School Wiki but on the respective school pages with its thumbnail cover as well. Mr. Sadath said that language computing was a major component of the Little KITEs training programme.
“We have been teaching Word processing and scientific Malayalam typing,” he said. “Raster-Vector image editing is also taught as part of graphic designing.”
It is the language computing activities that give shape to digital magazine preparations in schools.
Each school’s magazine content will comprise articles and other contributions by students and teachers.
