Kite Bangladesh Limited, primarily started in November, 2010 with the motto boosting Quality Education for All by integrating different Japanese teaching-learning methods in Bangladesh contexts, and worked in the spectrum of Early Childhood Development, counselling & parenting, language courses, e-learning materials, toys and pictorial story books.
The organization has been recently restructured to concentrate majorly in developing the areas of formal and non-formal education of the country. Kite has been implementing a number of educational projects. Computer Literacy Program is the pioneer among all sort of projects, an award winning non-formal model, which is incessantly running to make underprivileged youths in rural Bangladesh- digital literate. Another project named Smart Classroom supported a paradigm shift from traditional “teaching by telling” to “distributed learning” that ultimately enables “learning by doing.” It uses multimedia content CD and Internet, where available, a laptop and a widescreen monitor in the classroom to simplify the teaching-learning. Upgradation of the contents is continuous process, and recently the number of content reaches to 1100. Connecting Parents is a project through which schools get access to a web based platform where school can update and maintain database of students’ all sorts of performances, and parents would be able to get notified over texting directly from the web-based platform.
Learning Evaluation and Achievement Portal (LEAP) is another web based access from where anyone subscribed can retrieve an amount of questions according to their requirement, can execute online examination in their institution and can impose an online based homework administration practice for their child and pupils. Kite Bangladesh launches another web-based portal named Fast-track Technical Support Platform (FTSP) from where any technical solution seeker living in remote arenas will open a ticket and select a problem category from assorted number of problem trees. A central Kite technical expert team will be notified and ask local hub technical experts to take necessary actions regarding the problems’ solution. This will ultimately reduce the vacillation of solution seekers, and time for making solution to their devices.
Beside all the projects aforementioned, Kite believes training as a crucial component in signifying various pedagogic aspects which leads to attaining the overall milestones. Kite has certified experienced trainers who train school teachers and leaders in effective pedagogy and andragogy. Trainers put designing diversified face-to-face and online (synchronous and asynchronous) courses in pipeline for bolstering the teaching-learning phenomena in rural schools to shrink the gaps prevailing with urban schools.
