Online classes to help schools cover more curriculum

Central School of Nagpur, said, “We may cover slightly more of the curriculum than a traditional year because of the extended time in hand. We are using WhatsApp videos and online assignments as part of teaching. Students are sent one video topic each day, with a fixed time slot reserved for queries.”

Ritu Sharma, principal of Delhi Public School (Kamptee Road), said, “We have regular online classes and I keep joining all the sections to see what’s going on. We even had children making a nice concert song video, even though they were at their home only.”

Apart from studies, schools are also keeping kids engaged online by stimulating their creative side. Bishop Cotton School-CBSE (BCS) has encouraged students to send photos, videos etc of them creating awareness about coronavirus. Selected content is uploaded on the school’s Facebook page.

Lillian Makasare, principal of BCS, said, “All these activities are to make the kids aware about the virus. We usually give them tasks like drawing and yoga. Even in drawings, students depict things like how to wash hands, social distancing and precautions to be taken amid the Covid pandemic.”

Abha Meghe, director of Meghe Group of Schools, said, “Since children are spending a long time at home, it is important to ensure that they are engaged productively. In the tough times like these, it is equally important to look after the mental health of students as well and keeping that in mind we have introduced few extra-curricular activities for them,” said Meghe.
