Concept Behind One_WEB

 

As we see different Web Literacy campaigns running all across the globe but not much difference it was able to create it among the under privileged  in the long run.

Thus we came up with a concept called #ONE_WEB.

One_WEB is more of a idea and idea with the help of which the students specially the underprivileged kids are taught in such a way that they imbibe the concept of the WEB in their minds .

Let me give an example :

Do you remember the headlines of the News Paper this morning ? No I guess.

But you remember the story you went through ? YES

So One_WEB is about that Story telling that special way in which the Story is told to these kids so that they Imbibe in them the concept of WEB instead of knowing which program will run what.

It took me and my mentor Shahid Ali Farooqui almost 3 days of hard work to device this very way of sharing stories so that the kids even if not provided with computers or internet remembered the concept in long run.

This output which we receive in long run was the most valued proposition which helped us get partners for the event like Fire.

#ONE_WEB which is now planned in different parts of the country in different ways helps us achieve the target we had set for the Campaign.

As you see the picture you will understand the imprint which we created in the mind of this Kid.

He Created an ATM Card which he connected to an UBER and then Whats App and Flipkart. Now this proves us of the concept of teaching we came up with.

It became the first Mozilla Event in the country or rather world to receive so many Dipslay picture change and one of those events which had received so many digital footprints and as many partners as #One_WEB.

One_Web Event-2

One_Web the initiative taken by Mozilla Kolkata Community to touch upon 10000 Lives in 3 months.

As one of the Designers of this initiative let me make it very clear ; we are not trying to impart Web Literacy among these kids. As people might post that they can teach kids about WEB in 2 hours but I don’t believe so.

The Idea behind one web is to install in these kids the Idea of the WEB.What this other world actually is. We work for two hours with these kids to make them Understand how this other world is and give them a basic idea of WEB; in the later part of the event we provide them paper and colors to show us their understandings on the basis of our teaching.

The Second event of One_Web was hosted at Kailash Vidya Mandir with the help of an NGO My Treasures of Innocence.

It was a broad sunny day with 10+ Volunteers we went to the school. On a Bright Sunday morning and 186 kids all acorss it was really an awesome experience teaching these kids.

We got divided into four groups and taught these kids accordingly.

Teaching these kids was fun and then they were given paper to show their understanding about the thing which we taught them. The Out come was superb.The following Pictures will explain.

One_Web

We believe that Internet is the basic need or commodity of the day and as citizens of 21st century everyone must have access to Internet. While we still have a literacy rate to 71% in the country and 64.3% in the State (West Bengal) there are still a lot of people of various age group who have not used Internet or do not know how to use it. The Initiative was planned in such a way to reach to maximum no. of people of all age groups and teach them about the most potential resource of the World, the WEB.

 

With Kolkata being the Only City in the county to go full wifi in next 1 year and having 39 locations and 14 metro stations having free access to wifi there are teenagers or kids who will be using internet in near future to educate about the WEB is the main goal. WEB is the most powerful resource in the world as well as the most harmful if not used properly to educate these people about WEB is the main target.

Keeping this in Mind we came up with the One_Web Initiative an initiative to touch 1,00,000 lives in 3 months. The Planning was done in just 7 days and we conducted our first event on 3rd of July , 2016.

It had been raining super hard since the night before the event ; the day started with heavy rain in the morning. I as one of the key organizers was in a lot of tension as two questions were running in my mind 1.>Whether Volunteers will turn up ? 2.>Whether the Kids will be there at the Library. With a lot of hope and with high aims I got out of home.

Everyone(Volunteers) were supposed to assemble at the Spot by 11.00 am but the most interesting fact was 33 Volunteers had reached the desired destination in spite of Rain by 10.30 am.

With Umbrellas over head we headed to the Library of Tiljala shed through the small lanes of the Topsia Slum.What made our day was the over enthusiastic bunch of 100 kids who were all prepared to learn new things on a rainy Sunday morning.

We divided ourselves into groups and the teaching session started.We are extremely thankful to our partners who supported the event in their own way.
