Promote Digital Literacy

Sanitation

Separate toilets for boys and girls. Menstrual hygiene management facilities including soap, adequate and private space for changing, adequate water for cloth washing and disposal facilities for menstrual waste, including an incinerator and dust bins.

Promote Digital Literacy

Now you may think, are you serious? It's tough enough getting kids excited about reading and writing, now we're expected to teach them digital literacy? Here's the deal. Digital literacy already has a proverbial foot in the door in relation to students' interests and attention. For a vast majority of digital natives, the idea of books and paper is old and boring. They have these awesome tablets, laptops, apps, etc., that puts old-school media to shame. Why not use students' predisposition to digital media as a driver of engagement?

Daily hand-washing with soap before mid-day meal

Sufficient group hand-washing facilities allowing students to wash their hands at the same time. The hand-washing station should be simple, scalable and sustainable, relying on usage of minimum water.

Digital Literacy Promotes Higher-Order Thought Skills

Digital literacy skills are transmutable from the tech world to real world and meets many of the basic needs required by today's learning standards. Installing strong levels of digital literacy creates great avenues to learn and practice these higher-order skills, ranging from students working collectively via a Google Doc to developing the ability to analyze a web source's credibility (and everything in between).

Drinking water

Daily provision of child-friendly and sustainable safe drinking water and adequate water for hand-washing. In addition water for school cleaning and also food preparation and cooking. Safe handling and storage of drinking water should be practised throughout the school.

Digital Literacy Breaks Down the Walls of Learning and Information

The traditional pen-and-pencil system presents tons of barriers to student access and connection, whether it be the plight of a master narrative, language disconnect, etc. By instilling adept digital skills, students can break through these “walls” and become producers of knowledge.    
Allowing students to find their own learning resources (via the web, cloud-based learning tools, etc.) and analyze the sources’ benefit creates a true personalized learning environment. Students are no longer given a static text set that dictates how and what they should learn. Instead, developed digital literacy skills afford students the ability to seek out and utilize knowledge resources that help them create a personal learning connection.

Behaviour change activities

Water, sanitation and hygiene behaviour change communication activities should be part of the daily routine of all children. Hygiene messages may be integrated into the textbook curriculum or may be imparted through supplementary reading materials, activity based learning methodologies or even during the morning assembly sessions.    
Girls must be taught menstrual hygiene management by female teachers in a sensitive and supportive manner and also take steps to encourage and support girls during menstruation so they do not miss school. This involves menstrual hygiene education sessions at school, along with steps to ensure that girls have a private place to wash and change their clothes.

Digital Literacy Prepares Students for a Digital World

Whether it be working with Microsoft Office, understanding the nuances of a Windows/Mac operating system, or even the simple use of a mouse and keyboard, it's vital for students to be ready to roll when sitting in front of a digital device. In today's climate, gaining familiarity with digital device functions and features is just as important as learning to read and write.

Enhanced capacities

It is essential that capacities are improved at various levels within the sector, to develop the right mix of skills, knowledge and experience to facilitate, finance, manage and monitor water, sanitation and hygiene programmes in schools effectively.
