Learning Hub was proposed as an experimental pilot to improve the academic achievements of the students of class IX & X studying in the schools covered under the Learning Hub programme.
Under the experiment model of Learning Hubs one school is made a hub school which is linked with another 4-5 satellite schools. The Hub School is a resource rich centre of excellence offering well planned range of pedagogic and other activities supporting enhanced learning outcomes for students. These Hub Schools are the the centre for Teachers' capacity building, resource sharing, reflection and learning. Each of the learning Hubs is linked with a network of 5-6 satellite schools, roughly in the radius of 10 km, which are the centre of teaching-learning activities with the students.
Proposed Coverage:
  • Total 72 Schools - 12 Learning Hubs linked with 4-5 satellite schools each
  • Approximate 7000-8000 students  - Each Learning Hub reaches out to 600 to 700 students (roughly 100-120 students from 9th& 10th std. of each of the 6 schools in one Learning Hub)
  • Intensive engagement with about 288 teachers (4 teachers per school)
  • Subject Focus - Math, Science, English & Oriya

Location:

  • Mayurbhanj & Koraput districts with predominantly large tribal population
  • Hubs are located in 4-5 contiguous Educationally Backward Blocks in each of the districts
  • Hub schools are selected on the parameters like accessibility, good infrastructure base, willingness of HM and other staffs etc.
Criteria of selection of hub and satellite schools:

Hub schools

Criteria for creation of 12 hub schools:
  • Pupil teacher ratio
  • Infrastructure (Library, IT, lab, electricity and space; internet, if possible)
  • Distance factor: These schools are centrally located i.e. not too distant from the designated satellite schools.
  • Finally, enthusiasm of the teachers (willingness of the headmaster and motivated staff).
Satellite schools

Criteria for identification of satellite schools:
  • For every hub, about 5 schools within a distance of 10 km were identified as satellite schools. Therefore, Learning Hub model covers about 12 hub schools and 60 satellite schools, i.e.72 schools, in all.
This is a hub and spoke model with schools identified as hubs playing a central role and coordinating activities for schools in the periphery termed ‘satellite schools’. Through the Learning Hub experiment, the following key challenges affecting the quality of the education at Secondary Level is being tried to be addressed:
  • Inadequate provisioning of quality teaching-learning resources/ facilities at schools
  • Cumulative learning handicap among student, especially from the disadvantaged communities, from elementary level resulting in low academic achievements
  • Lack of systematic approach towards improving learning outcomes  - teachers’ motivation and abilities to respond to the learning difficulties faced by students
  • Low level of confidence, self esteem and communication abilities among students
