Nix : Fedena 3.5.2

Fedena School ERP dedication to Anne Sullivan

Fedena 3.5.2, codenamed Nix has released to our users across the world. From the Automatic Timetable generator to Transfer Certificate generator there are many exciting features to forward to this time. We are also continuing our practise of naming a release after a famous teacher. We often hear about people who went on to do great things and changed the lives of many around them. What we don’t hear often is the story of the people behind them who realized their potential and moulded them from a young age. In this release, we introduce you to such one teacher — Anne Sullivan.
 

 

By the age of ten, Helen Keller had become proficient in reading braille and in manual sign language. Now she wished to learn to speak, Anne Sullivan took her to the Horace Mann School for the deaf in Boston. After attending speech classes Helen was still never satisfied with her speech. To help with this Anne adopted the Tad-Oma method where the learner touches the cheek of the teacher to understand the vocal vibrations. Under her guidance, Keller reached new heights and became the first to get a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1904.

 


 

Watch the video of the famous event from Helen Keller’s life on how Anne Sullivan taught the blind and deaf girl about the existence of language to name items without Helen Keller hearing or seeing it. (Movie – The Miracle Worker (1962))

 

Anne Sullivan’s life is comparable to many of the teachers who have taught us. While many of their students go on to become famous and achieve great things in life, they continue their work of imparting education without expecting fame or recognition in return. We dedicate this version of Fedena 3.5.2 to Anne and the countless teachers like her who work behind the scenes.

custom fields as per the institution’s requirement. Read more about it here
