Delhi’s education department is all set to launch a project called BaLA – Building as Learning Aid . The project, to be launched by the Delhi government on January 23, focuses on using the existing school infrastructure as a part of the learning process and in making education indispensable to everyday life. The project also addresses inclusive education in mainstream schools.
The project explores the fact that physical space is also usable as a resource for the teaching-learning process. The school buildings and their constituent elements such as floors, walls and ceilings have been treated innovatively so as to help the learning process.
The first series would see transformation take place within the confines of a classroom, while the latter would be aimed at integrating studies with the infrastructure outside the classroom. This is how the school would function, once the first phase of the BaLA initiative is implemented.
