Peer2peer Learning Among Youth (PLAY): An Innovative Initiative in a Rural Elementary School in India

Authors: S. Rangarajan

Pages: 29-31


This paper presents a unique and universal scheme to improve the performance of every student. We present a recent case study conducted in a rural elementary school located in the outskirts of Bangalore, India. It is shown how the scores in one topic of mathematics among a class of 10 students showed a drastic improvement when a student who understood the problem better explained the procedure to his classmates. It is proposed that researchers study the effectiveness of this component as an aid in improving the learning outcomes of students in schools especially in remote areas, especially since this scheme does not require any additional costs.
