Challenging, changing, comprehending, coaching – the flow of today’s schooling.

17, Mar 2021

The vatsalya, primary section firmly believe on the saying, when the going gets tough the tough gets going.
The academic year 2020-21 was inherently destined to be a year of challenges, changes, comprehending and finally coaching.
The system that predominantly worked with students in classroom, books, blackboard chalk and duster had to start a brand new, and we did it very effectively.
The technology turned out to be a great book during this pandemic. Educating the young mind could not come to a halt for my wonderful team of facilitators. They were willing to absorb all that it took to be true to their profession.
Communication begins for those who work at it.
The few moves we made from the word go; our kick start step was adopting the WhatsApp messaging app for communicating messages, sending voice messages to parents who had to now start looking more deeply into the child’s academic work.
Next came in the zoom app to carry out online classes. Of course, objections did flow in from various directions. But we stuck to our ground that imparting education must go on and no sooner the teachers, parents and students settled with the system.
It is said a picture paints a thousand words
Alongside zoom meeting to bring about a better understanding to our teaching every teacher prepared a powerpoint presentation for every lesson. The creative minds in my team did not stop at just ppts they went ahead and made videos wherein the students would be able to recall the lesson taught, reading with correctness.
If it is important to you, you’ll find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.
Yes, activities, competitions and testing is an important part of students’ life, it gives them a desire to move ahead. We went after what we wanted and got it in The Google Classroom & The Delta Step App.
These platforms gave us the opportunity to do all that we desired conduct activities, competition, test their learning etc. the students were able to submit homework, assignments, pictures and videos. We also went ahead and checked the notebooks on this app so the students learnt correctly. We did not leave any stone unturned to organize festive celebrations or bring an awareness of the important days.
To make our classes more interactive and less noisy we often quizzed our kids at the end of the class using google forms.
Parents and teachers need to work together in harmony. We all have the same goal: to help make our kids’ lives better!
The teachers greatly supported the parents in training them to use the various apps. This called for attending calls at any time. And each one did it very patiently and calmly. Nevertheless, our enthusiastic parent did all they could to keep the ball rolling.
This year would surely go down in history for the teaching community as the ones who spread the light silently without being silent.
Together May We Give Our Children The Roots To Grow And The Winds To Fly.

E-Learning

17, Mar 2021

Schools across the globe have already closed in the wake of the corona virus pandemic. The most affected sector in this situation is the education sector.
Going to school is the best public policy tool available to raise skills. While school time can be fun and can raise social skills and social awareness, from an economic point of view the primary point of being in school is that it increases a child’s ability. Even a relatively short time in school does this; even a relatively short period of missed school will have consequences for skill growth. But can we estimate how much the COVID-19 interruption will affect learning? Education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms.
Global home schooling will surely produce some inspirational moments, some angry moments, some fun moments and some frustrated moments, it seems very unlikely that it will on average replace the learning lost from school.
Teachers are suddenly faced with the challenge of how to continue their students’ education. While this might seem a daunting task, there are several ways teachers could utilize the technology and resources already available to support online learning and ensured students still receive a quality education.
Teachers have rounded up some of the best techniques to help ease the transition from the classroom to the web. There are several benefits to online learning and with the right knowledge; teachers and parents can embrace these possibilities. For those who do have access to the right technology, there is evidence that learning online can be more effective in a number of ways.
In nut shell, Covid-19 has brought many changes in various angles of education sector.

Artificial Intelligence and the Transformation of Education

2, Sep 2020

The transition of education to online models due to COVID-19 has highlighted the large digital deficiencies that exist in the educational system in many countries, universities and primary and secondary schools throughout the world.
Gone are the days of library visits to photocopy a few pages from an Encyclopedia for a school project; thanks to a generation that has grown up with technology at their fingertips, school children, and even kindergartners, live in a world where education has changed, and where the internet is their primary source of entertainment and information. Chalkboards and photostats in the classroom are also a thing of the past, with the availability of smart technology such as interactive whiteboards, IT suites, and tablet-based learning becoming more commonplace in schools
Our school has introduced Artificial Intelligence courses to make our student familiar with changing world. According to the statistics given by the Human Resource & Development (HRD)Ministry of India in 2016, there is a shortage of 1 million teachers across the country. In the case of Universities and Colleges, there is a chronic shortage of faculty and the problem of finding qualified people to fill this gap has become even more complicated.
Artificial Intelligence is presented as one of the key technological levers in the transformation of education. Artificial Intelligence helps find out what a student does and does not know, building a personalized study schedule for each learner considering the knowledge gaps. In such a way, AI tailors’ studies according to student’s specific needs, increasing their efficiency.
