Swecha, along with National Consultative Committee on Computer Education is holding a 3 day Teacher Training Workshop.The Workshop is going to be held on the 10th ,11th and 12th of January,2015 in Hyderabad. The focus of this workshop is to train the teachers on BalaSwecha, an Operating System developed by Swecha Volunteers on the lines of free software. BalaSwecha Operating System aims to help the teachers by acting as a computer-aided-education tool. Two workhsops introducing this software have been organised last summer, covering 170 teachers from government schools, across both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The feedback from the teachers resulted in an updated version of the software. The current workshop will focus on training the teachers on the new applications and features.
Swecha has put up a stall at the ongoing Vijayawada Book Fair being organized at PWD Grounds in Vijayawada. The book fair was inaugurated on the 1st of January, 2015 and the stall received a reverberating response. All the visitors to the stall commended the work done by Swecha in bringing out 'Swecha OS' in telugu.
“I have been feeling bad that the number of telugu speaking people is reducing day by day. Being an ardent admirer of telugu, I feel glad on seeing the kind of work Swecha has been doing to promote the language in one of the most revolutionary technologies of the present day- computer. I congratulate the Swecha team and hope that they continue to do the kind of work they're doing,” said by a visitor
