As the Covid-19 outbreak swirls, K.R Mangalam World School, G.K-II has taken some contingent measures to keep students engaged through online education and examination. In this time of crisis, a well-rounded and effective educational practice is needed for the capacity-building of the young minds as learningshould not get impaired due to any reason. We are exploring the most effective e-learning applications to make learning accessible to students in the comfort and safety of their homes. The school is following a timetable which ensures that students are able to allocate adequate time to each academic subject and even to co-curricular activities.
Online learning should not be limited to video lectures and written assignments. With a little out-of-the box thinking, teachers are constructing activities for the students which helps in stimulating their minds and keeping them engaged. Teachersare constantly encouraging their students to be active members of the class by allowing them to think and perform on their own. They are also devoting some time to unearth their talents and interests.
Various activities like ‘Poster making’ on conservation of plants and animals, growing of new plants etc were conducted in Science and Social Science during the Van Mahotsav week.Sieve methods of Eratosthenes were also learnt during classes.
The parents’ feedback on these classes, activities and assessment has been very encouraging.
