In tune with the recently-concluded Doordarshan telecast Green Kerala Express, the reality show depicting grassroot-level developmental initiatives of local self-governing bodies in the state the education department too is planning to launch a similar show where selected schools would present their educational innovations in the format of a competition.

The show would be aired on the state-run IT@School ViCTERS channel, the country's first channel exclusively meant for educational shows through EDUSAT network. This would showcase the various innovative initiatives taken by the schools and its students and teachers such as peer teaching, green endeavours or any other innovations related to education.

"This show will be the first attempt to integrate the learning elements with the societal roles of children. Here, both children and teachers will be presenting the achievement of their schools with the help of videos and IT-enabled communication tools. This will be a competitive space, where diverse types of unique models in learning will be presented," says K Anvar Sadath, executive director of IT@ School project.

The show would be jointly organised by IT@ School project and the Center for Development of Imaging Technology.

The three-month long show, starting November, would have 45-minutes long 75 episodes presented by 100 schools both government and private ones.

Sadath said all participating schools in Kerala have been provided with handycams, laptops and a broadband internet connection in order to document their efforts. The schools will be screened for the show based on the videos prepared by them. The crew of the show would then go to each of the selected schools and shoot the project.

The title of the show, the jury members and the prize money for the winners will be decided within a week.
