To make them understand different computer and free software related terms we are facing real time grilling. Actually our first test came just on Day 2 when we started teaching them what is network and what are servers and clients. Ajitesh gave a example of Doctors and Patients and one Doctor serving several patients as Server and Clients. I think Ajitesh Acted finely as again giving a nice example of presence of mind. Actually our skills of giving examples are improving day by day and thanks to the students of the school.
The next big deal was to make them understand what is a password and why do we use it ? Actually we had to give a example which they have seen in real life, So I choose taking the example of key combination locks and even number locks. I think the idea behind using password will not be very clear till they have a hands on, till they now know what is password and why using it. The next stunning thing which happened is a boy while telling this told “amar monehoy password anekta mobile phone er PIN er moton” which in english means that I think password is something like the PIN in mobile phones. Beleive me I was really shocked as we are teaching someone about password of computers and he is replying with PIN of mobile phones is strange…Then he told something which make us feel ki getting shocked is something which we shud make habbit. When he was asked about how do you know about PIN He told “asole mobile hate niye dekechi tai jani, computer thakleo sike jetam” which in English means I have seen mobile and used it if i would have used computers i would learn this things too. After this i think i am not in a state of commenting on his line and so i kept mum.
Beton on day 3 again sprang up with typical examples of his own. While they were learning about DESKTOP the buttons on a paricular window etc etc. While explaining maximization of a window and after maximization of window same button acting as restore Beton told them ” tomra KBC dekecho ?? ” which means in eng ki “Did u people saw KBC ?? ” most of nodded +vely (i m happy that SRK has so many fans even here asme too is a fan of him ) , then beton said ” KBC te jerokom bhabe 20000Rs er por akta lifeline ashe serokom bhabe maximize howar porei oitai restore button hoy na hole hoy na” translating which stands as As in KBC after 20000Rs a new lifeline comes but doesnt come before samely maximize button becomes restore only after maximization not before that. Beleive me till the whole example was given i didnt have a hint of this type being a example but i am happy that students did understood the fact KBC and the buttons in a window :)) .
We r carrying around finely we need a little pace, hope we get it soon.
