Flip not Flop
In an age when the world of education is an ever-evolving and ever-changing phenomenon, a new challenge was faced by the teachers and students in 2020 was Covid-19, I think it should be Covid-20!. Jokes apart, but the moment lockdown was announced, we like everybody else felt that it is ephemeral and will be over in a month or two. Yet, the greatest challenge was how to continue the teaching-learning process.
the modern times where educators are facilitators of learning, with emphasis on
experiential learning, the greatest impediment in the time of the pandemic was
how to create
a classroom without physically being present in the school. The teachers who were
not tech-savvy and were comfortable with the chalk board teaching method, had
to create virtual classrooms and teaching was a herculean task.
this virtual and digital platform opened a plethora of options, which enhanced
the teaching and learning experience. It created an enriching and fulfilling experience
for the students.
incorporated various methods to make learning constructive, interesting and
joyful for e.g Power Point Presentations (PPT), Videos, G.O, Flip Teaching,
Kahoot, Quizzes, Google Earth Pro, etc.
Flip teaching by far has been the best methodology and it fits well in both normal and virtual classrooms, and makes students from a passive listener to an active participant in the class. And they come out with innovative methods of teaching and explaining which encourages other students as well and helps in shedding inhibitions and reticence boosting their confidence, logical thinking, and communication skills.
For we, Kahoot turned out to be an excellent digital platform to create fun quizzes for the students and best tool for me so far for recapitulation of any chapter that too in a playful way which students thoroughly enjoy.
