PEDAGOGY DURING THE PANDEMIC @ KRM-VP,PV-A REPORT
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
Thefaculty of KRM Vikaspuri & PaschimVihar has decided to challenge the situation, as they understand that education alone can be a solution to the present situation.
The teachers have taken a lead by providing the students with an opportunity to carry on with their studies even during this critical phase. A lively exchange of experiences was immediately established among all KRM educators through the virtual platform, to ensure their regular engagement to continue their education, and to do so in a way that is not even stressful.
The teachers at K.R.M, PaschimVihar conducted an introductory session through virtual means to welcome children along with their parents to be a part of the KRM Family for the academic session 2020-‘21 .
It was an interactive session where the class teachers introduced themselves to their new children and the parents. The teachers briefed the parents about the school activities, timings, meal facility, events, monthly planner etc. The parents were also informed about the virtual teaching methods like videos, presentation and links to cope up with the academics .The parents were guided, to get their little ones engaged in doing fun filled activities which will enhance their learning while spending quality time with their families. At the same time children were encouraged and motivated to keep themselves safe, hygienic and to stay at home to avoid the spread of virus.The children were happy to meet their new teachers .The queries of the parents were resolved at the end of the session, who were satisfied and appreciated the efforts of the management and the teachers .
The first session of the classes for the primary and middle wing on the online portal was taken by the class teachers to welcome students into their new session,briefing them about the online pedagogical sessions.
The Senior wing of the school continued with the online teaching and took the level one step further by engaging them in online contests, to keep up the spirit of the students.
The children also left no stone unturned to join in the Prime Minister’s call to turn off their lights for 9 minutes at 9 pm on April 5 and light a candle or a diya to mark the country’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
The tireless endeavours of the faculty were acknowledged and applauded by the parents boosting the morale of the educators to stretch their limits in assisting learners during this turbulent time.
