Introduction to DDI Program:
HYSEA, with Nirmaan Organization as the Knowledge and implementation partner has initiated the Disruptive Digital Intervention (DDI)
project to provide a motivating and encouraging environment for high school students from socio-economically marginalized sections of the society,
to make them Digitally Literate and help nurture a culture of innovation. To further this objective, it is proposed to establish a Digital Lab at Government
school (with supportive school managements and good student strength).
DDI is intended to help in:
Bridging the digital divide among the students of Govt. Schools / Colleges
Create learning interest, and improve the students skillset
Improve learning processes and pedagogy

Most of the government schools/colleges under TSWREIS (Telangana Social Welfare
Residential Educational Institution Societies) lack with the support of Digital
labs / infrastructure due to high costs / lack of support from the government.
Few examples include:
A lack of in-house expertise. A key principle of digital transformation is the implementation of digital technologies
Poor employee uptake
Lack of planning and strategy
Many of the meritorious students from these institutions have no access to digital technology due to which they are lacking with their technical skills and hence can’t progress in their careers and compete with the other students.
This is the major problem in all the residential schools / colleges. Hence if there would be a digital classroom in every school / college for these students, they would achieve any success in their life.
Need / Commitments for the Program:
HYSEA - NIRMAAN COMMITMENTS THROUGH SETUP OF DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE
Identified Problem in Govt School / College
Many schools / colleges are not having computers. Hence, students do not have access/exposure to computers
1:1 computer-student ratio i.e., every student would get 15 minutes of time during the lab
Every Child will have good access to computer facility
In many colleges, computers become non-functional due to repairs in hardware or software
Downtime of computers is minimal
Schools / Colleges, especially in rural areas, have frequent power cuts. This is one of the major ground level issues which is a hindrance for students learning.
A power backup (UPS/Inverter)
