MAGO Savaal is a 2-day online Tamil workshop which is an arts-integrated series that stimulates knowledge and thinking in Tamil through everyday activities based on performing/traditional arts and Tamil language. The interactive workshop spanning over 2 days will have a story where the students are involved to complete the tasks to achieve the final goal. The participants are actively engaged in simple activities with conversations leading to an awareness of the Tamil language usage beyond textbooks.
It is a first-of-its-kind online interactive activities which incorporates challenges conducted entirely in Tamil. Students will be participating from the convenience of their homes and can access the application from their laptops, computer or hand phones. The students will form a part of the storyline and be engaged in tasks such as completing a language task or displaying a traditional art performance to complete the workshop and emerge successful. They will also garner the support of the parents to be part of the tasks. They will be absorbed in the virtual task of gaining their scores after a completion of a task by performing or uploading results/tasks, all in Tamil language.
Our objective is to empower primary school students in the awareness and greater use of Tamil language that goes beyond school textbooks. The participants will speak in Tamil language while answering quizzes or carrying out language and performance-based challenges through activities, discovery and exploration in a fun and interactive manner, as they move ahead to achieve their target set in the story.
Our objective here is to promote the use of Tamil language among the young students by providing opportunities for them to converse as they get engrossed in the tasks and challenges. During the session, students will be handpicked randomly to answer questions, enact or give explanations for their answer.
