Which Indian won the first Global Teacher Award 2020?|This primary teacher from India received Global teacher the award, donated half of the Rs 7 crore
An education in Maharashtra has won the Global Teacher Prize for its efforts to promote girls’ education and connect them to technology in one of the country’s primary schools. The 32-year-old winner Ranjit Singh Disale has received a prize of 10 10 lakh (about Rs 7 crore 38 lakh) for it. Ranjit Disale has now announced to give half of this amount to his colleagues. Schools are completely closed during the Corona epidemic. Digital learning is happening in schools but it is not enough. Girls in particular are lagging behind because they have less mobile in their hands.
On the other hand, the education of a small village in the country at such a time has made a great contribution in the education of girls. This is the case of Paritwadi village in Solapur district of Maharashtra. When Disale arrived at the primary school in 2009, the condition of the school was very bad. The building named after the school was in poor condition. It was clear that they were working on keeping animals and in the store room. People had no interest in educating their children, especially their daughters, because they believed that there was nothing to change. Ranjit Singh Disale translated the textbooks one by one into the mother tongue. (Photo – twitter) Ranjit Singh Disale took responsibility for changing this situation. Going from house to house preparing children’s parents for education was not the only task. Another problem was that the textbooks were in English. Disale then translated the textbooks into the mother tongue one by one. It also added technology. The technology was to provide QR codes so that students could attend video lectures and listen to poems and stories in their own language. Since then, the rate of child marriage in the village and surrounding areas has been declining rapidly.
This teacher from Solapur did it even before introducing QR code in textbooks in Maharashtra. Disale then did not stop. In the year 2017, they proposed to the Maharashtra government that all the courses should be attached to it. Disale’s talk was then carried out at an earlier experimental level and finally the state government announced that they would launch QR code textbooks in the state for all categories. Now the NCERT has also made this announcement. Disale, a primary school teacher in Solapur’s severely deprived district, received the award for the most wonderful teacher in the world for his efforts. The award was launched in 2014 with the aim of awarding an outstanding teacher to the Wark Foundation for its outstanding contribution, with 12,000 teachers from around the world entering this year. As soon as the prize money was announced, Disale announced to distribute half of the remaining amount among fellow participating teachers. They say the teacher always believes in giving and sharing. It is worth noting that each runner-up who distributes half of the prize money will receive 00 40,000 pound
