Learning technology helps Kishoris explore many different opportunities. With use of Audio Recoding Kishoris can gain Self Confidence, and the technology can be used by them too. Along with Audio recording, encouraging Kishoris to talk on various topic will enhance their communication skills.


  1. After previous week’s discussion on technology, it can be assumed that even we can use technology.
  2. On our previous discussion, Kishoris have paid attention and followed on what to be done while recording.
  3. Some Kishoris got into argument within group, there is a lack of self-confidence.
  4. Resources available for activities are in Kannada and all Kishoris might not be able to read Kannada easily.
  5. Since we nominated few Kishoris in the previous week, it might be assumed among other Kishoris that they are our favourites.
  6. We had 2 Sound Recorders. And opted for simple activities but everyone might not have got the opportunity.


  1. To practise Audio basics
  2. New step to enhance Kishoris’ communication skills
