Shimul Rani Das, an assistant teacher of Oshkhali Aliya Model Primary School, woke up in a Friday morning and opened Teacher’s Portal (www.teachers.gov.bd) her laptop to check for new updates and contents which has become a habit for her in last couple of years. But this Friday is different as she discovered that she was featured in the home page of the portal as one of the best content creators and her uploaded content was selected as one of the best contents of the week. In addition, her content was downloaded by other teachers and received many positive feedbacks in the comment section. Besides other members of the portal congratulated her for being selected as one of the best content creators in the blog section.
Shimul Rani was overwhelmed with all those appreciations and recognitions and became elated by the fact that finally her dedication and commitment paid off. She recalled her struggle regarding content development, uploading, downloading and how she tackled different barriers like load shedding and low bandwidth. She didn’t even hesitate to go nearby a network tower to find more internet speed. She will remain grateful to all those teachers who provided necessary guidance by pointing out her mistakes and suggesting areas of improvement in her early content making days. Those feedbacks and guidance motivated her to improve her skills and create better quality content.
Teacher’s Portal has provided an online collaborative platform for the teachers of primary, secondary and higher secondary level throughout the country where educational multimedia contents will be stored, accessed and shared without any cost. This shared platform is eliminating knowledge gap and digital divide by widening access to knowledge and opportunities to the teachers like Shimul Rani and facilitating self-driven development to ensure quality education (Goal no 4 of SDG).
