HYDERABAD: From devising interactive online content to tying up with online learning service providers, schools and government authorities have upped their game ahead of the commencement of classes for the next academic year.
Last year, when the pandemic hit, schools and students had to abruptly shift from physical to online classes, giving no time for school managements and government authorities to plan the transition. This year, many have sought feedback from all the stakeholders and have chalked out detailed plans to enhance the learning experience of students.
The Telangana State Recognised School Managements Association (TRSMA), which has close to 30,000 budget schools under its ambit, has tied up with digital learning platforms for online classes and practicals as well. “We have tied up with a platform that is going to enable online learning for students. They will be developing content as per the prescribed syllabus. Using QR codes, students will be able to take up assignments and worksheets. Multiple choice question tests and auto-evaluation is also being enabled,” said S Madhusudan, general secretary, TRSMA, adding that another platform will enable virtual practicals for science subjects.
While the government has decided to continue its online classes through T-SAT and DD Yadagiri, they will begin with bridge courses for the first two months.
“For June and July, the school education department has decided to conduct revision classes and has asked all schools to extend support. Last year, many students were facing issues due to technical glitches, lack of access to resources such as internet and television. This year, we are focusing more on students who have no resources at their disposal,” said Manju Latha Narra, headmistress of Raj Bhavan Government School in Somajiguda.
Many private schools have focused largely on teacher training. “This year, we are at a greater advantage as teachers have learnt to utilise many free tools that are available online. Many schools have invested in hours of teacher training to ensure that the teaching and learning process is seamless,” said Shailaja Gopinath, principal, Delhi Public School, Secunderabad.
