The past two years have greatly improvised how teachers and students interact in a learning space. These are the key adaptations undertaken by teachers to impart impactful learning in a remote environment:
- Use of online educational resources: Academies and portals which act as digital resources are at the disposal of teachers. Some popular ones are Scholastic, Byju’s and Vedantu.
- Blended learning technique: Making use of both synchronous and asynchronous strategies along with online tools, as with pre-recorded lessons, spider web discussions, think-pair-share activities etc.
- Online forums: Platforms such as Google Classroom provide seamless file sharing in-between teachers and students and other tools such as Google docs encourage accountable peer-to-peer feedback.
- Digital tools: Collaborative Boards such as Nearpod Collaborate that allow students to share ideas on a topic while a teacher can approve what is or is not to be added to the discussion board and keeping note of who is participating in the discussion.
- Alternate to books : An encouraged use of alternatives to paper based resources such as e-worksheets, e-schedules etc. which are, in a way, also making kids acutely aware of the limited natural resources available. This brings the focus to PC learning.
- Learning about the world: Inclusion of social media and current affairs in the curriculum and making students aware of the internet and how to browse the web safely.
- Well-rounded learning: A holistic learning environment with continuous feedback for the teachers to improve upon and that encourages development in all areas of interest.
