Online Classes can be a saviour for us at this stage of national lockdown. It won't be wrong to say that the whole world is temporarily closed.

'Participation' is the first key and 'Practice' is the second to make learning happen in the classroom. When a teacher teaches and students become a part of the process, there is nothing that can stop the realisation of learning. There is always a long-term goal in the mind of a teacher and a short-term objective for a student. They need to enable the kids to successfully hunt a good career and life; student desire to acquire reasonably impressive skill-sets to make this a reality.

Grid List

Until recently, teaching was not something we understood the way it should be. We thought of the teachers as just another stakeholder in the process of education. But the COVID Lockdown and the subsequent flood of Online Teaching has brought the rationality back to teaching. Online teaching, the way we are ending up doing, looks like a cheap prescription followed obsessively.

If we give something good to the place, the reflections are certainly good. Still, this view does not liberate the administrators or teachers of their pivotal role in imparting learning.
