Site: Area 3 – Government Girls Secondary School (GGSS), Kalkaji, New Delhi
Kalkaji is located in the capital, New Delhi, in a girls’ school close to the site of Sugata’s original Hole in the Wall experiment.
The school only runs in the morning as the premises are shared with the boys who attend school in the afternoon.
This is one of the smallest School in the Cloud labs, operating with just a handful of computers, one of which is connected to Skype during Granny Cloud sessions.
The girls who use this lab are typically between 11-15 years old from the lower socio-economic classes, and attend the English section of an otherwise Hindi medium school. However, even their fluency in English is quite limited.
It’s an example of how a place can be remote, even when it is located in a region that has easy access to facilities and resources and is exposed to all that the world has to offer.
Kalkaji lab opened in February 2014.
