[On-Demand Webinar] Classrooms 2.0: Tech-Enabled Teaching

Webinar for school leaders

How can teachers increase in-class engagement during this pandemic?

Rajshekhar Ratrey, Toppr Academy, sharing his experience, explained that kids learn better with friends, so playing live quizzes can lead to more engagement. Another aspect could be dividing learners into smaller groups for more collaborations and learning.

In addition, he recommends creating lectures and lessons in a way that promotes student participation.

Dr Vohra, GEMS school, responds that having management play a role is a 'happy disruption' essential to give a trigger. 

"When we opt for an online course, at first, we need to address what we need to do? What works and what doesn't? Flipped learning must be used differently in online classes; management must support and understand that 'one size fits all' is certainly not the answer. Every year group has different requirements and requires different pedagogy."

She precisely elaborates that everybody is part of this innovation, everybody is a leader, there's no top-down approach, and everybody participates in this equity process.

Sudhir Kukreja, Credence, further adds that the management team shoulders the responsibilities of nurturing the thought process and the school's philosophies. Their role should be to give the teachers the proper support and invest in technologies as much as possible. He gives the example of using the classroom-based eLearning website his school created a couple of years ago to assess learning outcomes.

Poll 3 - Teaching Techniques

Rajshekhar Ratreya, Toppr, states that teachers cannot watch their students after online classes, which is a bigger problem.

"We need to bring in a solution to help teachers track students, know how they spend time, and adapt to it and plan lessons and projects accordingly. Also, this would help establish teacher-parent communications."

What steps can schools take for 100% syllabus completion?

Sudhir Kukreja, Credence, says he encourages his teachers to focus on "what and how we are covering" rather than "how much we complete". As he believes, ultimately, everything is about "what we have learned so far" and not about "how many chapters we have finished".

Dr Amrita agrees that learning to "learn" is important than just completing the portion, ensuring no learning loss.

Rajshekhar, Toppr, also suggests creating an easy, quick, and simple learning format. Sharing Toppr Academy's lesson planning strategy that can be read in 2-3 mins makes it easier for students to quickly read a day before and attend class the next day. They learn things quickly, and complex topics can be addressed in the class with teachers. By doing so, they can learn more in less time.

Later in the webinar, a took place during which the speakers responded to the following questions:

  • If you're not cognizant of portion completion, how can you handle the loss of information at any grade level and learning gap later on?
  • Which apps can grab young learners' attention, especially of the not so tech-savvy learners?
  • How to make children of primary grade independent during online teaching?
  • How do you take learning without a textbook?
