XOBDO.ORG presentation at Tangla Schools

One of XOBDO.ORG's members, Ms. Karishma Boro (KB) visited UN Academy Senior Secondary School Tangla on September 14, 2023 with a purpose of teaching students the process of words entry at

Before visiting the school, KB came to know that the school don't have projector facilities, so KB prepared to share files on their phones and teach the login process, word entry process, and took printouts of important pages as well. However, after visiting the school, KB discovered that children are not permitted to bring phones to the school.

Therefore, KB verbally discussed on lexicography, XOBDO.ORG, the distinction between online and offline dictionaries, the significance of language digitization, current status of XOBDO.ORG's Bodo words etc. She also explained, how they can contribute words, and how XOBDO.ORG can help them develop their skills.

Later, KB demonstrated the students how to search words on XOBDO.ORG using print-outs. KB began  asking them if they used Google to look up words and whether they could find Bodo words online. The answer was an overwhelming "no". Then, KB introduced XOBDO.ORG and showed print-outs to illustrate them. The fact that the meaning of the Bodo word can also be accessed online surprised the students. Since the majority of the students come from rural areas, they lack internet access and require additional technical education.

KB could only demonstrate how they can search words at Xobdo, as it was also different to show the words entry process without projector and phones. The students also lacked required IT skills. Hence, KB then explained what email is. She also explained how Devanagari Script was adopted by Bodos and she advised students to develop IT skills in this era of interest for better job opportunities. KB also shared her contact no. with the students and collected everyone’s phone nos. to share the process of word entry in Video . KB requested everyone to take part in contributing words in Xobdo and encouraged them to use .
