The ‘new normal’ change of schools is – Online Classroom. Until the beginning of 2020, mobile phones, computers and other electronic devices were considered to be education-oriented, and were largely missing from the education sector in India. During the epidemic, the education sector has been forced to rely on gadgets to provide quality education to the students without any hindrance. One can get bored of studying on LCD screen continuously for 6 hours a day, in such a way, there should be a discussion on the ways through which students studying at home can also focus on studying with the enjoyment of their classroom.
Online morning assembly
In the morning assembly, teachers and students sing small prayers in the morning and a ‘thought of the day’, which is the best way to start any day. Classes have been done online, this does not mean that the morning assembly cannot be online! The same routine can still be repeated at every class level, whichever teacher takes the first class can start with morning prayers. They can take responsibility for who will narrate ‘Thought of the Day’ and can also give responsibility to a student to share what they have learned with the class, or a drawing, or a Poem. And anything creative that he has created.
Interactive digital quiz
Online quizzes can be the best way to maintain children’s interest in a classroom. This can be an honest and competitive medium to teach them. Such quizzes can be of three to four questions, which can be answered in the chat option. Quizzes can also be added to the middle of the class, such as – Answer three questions or at the end of a chapter, three questions related to the issue taught on finishing it, etc. Either the teacher can award him the best performer or tell his parents about his achievement.
Activity based learning
Now that students are in homes, they can be included in many such activities that they will get to learn something. Power point slides and quizzes are the best way to keep students from getting bored, other than that small students definitely like physical activities. Easy activities can be – finding real-life examples of shapes, including them in basic cooking without fire, besides using art and craft as answers to questions. Students will also get a chance to be creative and increase their energy.
Online hobby classes
These days, children cannot go out to take a break due to the threat of covid 19. Instead, the help of all types of online resources can be taken to develop their hobbies. Under this, activities like yoga, dance, music, cooking, kitchen gardening, etc. can be taught online. These may not be included in all the essential activities, but it is a good way to make students feel refreshed. Some of these activities can involve parents along with them, this also gives them time to spend time together.
Physical activities during classes
Yes, it is possible. Continuously increasing the time to see the screen leaves a bad impression on the eyes. Teachers should also take a few minutes break and train them to exercise the eye muscles. They are very easy and effective exercises. In a normal classroom where you cannot join 30-40 children together in a physical activity, it can be done in an online classroom. Many physical activities can be included in a class, such as running fast to the nearest room and hugging a family member, jumping five times in the same place.
