Keeping pace with the changing times, and the paradigm shift in the pedagogy, our teachers quickly adapted to the technology driven classes brought in by the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. The facilitators plan subject integration to consolidate the classroom learning experiences for developing strong skills and subject competencies.
Considering it as an opportunity for learning and keeping in mind our ongoing work on education innovation, our teachers moved to online teaching making use of various EdTech tools in our regular classes. Google Jamboard, Padlet, Google Docs and Slides were used not only to impart knowledge but these tools were also used as platforms for students to express themselves. Online sessions also helped us to adopt multiple strategies to make our students active listeners e.g. Podcast, YouTube videos, TEDTalks, CommonLit, to name a few.
Online Classes : 2020-21 (student testimonial)
Collaborative discussions using jamboard have emerged as the most preferred activity for many of our peers. Due to the ongoing pandemic situation and regular classes being virtual, it is hard for students to work on a collaborative level. But because of the jam board, it is easier for students to work together. It can be used for class discussion and revision. It is also a very effective way to check whether students have understood concepts and the teacher can immediately address any misconceptions that the students might have.
