Online Activities Conducted At CFS during the Lockdown Period
Schools have been locked down since 19th March 2020, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This unprecedented event has effected people from all walks of life and disrupted the normal education routine. CFS has taken this in its stride and has endeavoured to ensure that students are abreast and in constant touch with their studies through Regular Online Classes and Worksheets and Assignments which are sent to them on a daily/weekly basis.

But it is not all studies. Fun filled activities and celebration of festivals are interspersed to break the monotony of Online Studies.

 


 

Celebrating Budh Purnima
"This pandemic is unprecedented for us, but we have experienced other hard things too"
At CFS we give opportunity to our children to practice resilience and celebrate each moment of life.

On 7th May, Budh Purnima was celebrated amongst the tiny tots of Classes I-V with great zeal and fervour. Students were explained about the teachings of Lord Buddha through various means, PPTs, Video Clips etc. The students were also informed about Buddhism and the countries where it is followed. A Short story about the life of Buddha was also narrated and students were also encouraged to give the answers at the end. Students showcased their talent and excitement towards the celebration by speaking lines about the day and also presented it through their sketch, book marks etc.
 


   

Mother's Day Celebrations
"The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculations".
The first word that a child speaks on coming to this beautiful world, is saying “Maa”. God couldn't be everywhere so he created mothers. Mother's Day is a celebration honouring all Mothers as well as motherhood. Online Activity Classes at CFS were all about the celebration of Mothers. Children made wonderful greeting cards for their mothers signifying their love for them. Some children grooved to the music that was played in the class. Overall, the session was really entertaining and full of excitement and gay.

Its not only studies during the Online Classes - Its Fun Time, Dance Time and Aerobics too

 

Teacher's Training -  Managing Student Engagement
An online Webinar conducted by FICCI ARISE on the subject- Managing Student Engagement on 9th May 2020 between 4-5PM was attended by Sisira Vishwanath (TGT English) and Seema kapoor (TGT, Social Science).
Pallavi Dhody Dwivedi, Education Policy Specialist, from FICCI Arise was the moderator who brought attention of the participants on the online classes being conducted in the schools during the lock down days and the barriers that could be faced during the process. There were experienced teachers from different schools in the panel who gave presentations on the difficulties faced and the methods devised to counter the challenges.
The difficulty areas discussed were-
1. Students get disengaged
2. Students do not complete assignments
3. Students don't attend classes


 

The panel spoke on LOGISTICAL BARRIER which they believed is an occasional and not a regular issue when there is connectivity problem or lack of understanding of the platform on which the classes are conducted. This problem has been addressed by the schools as the students have been educated how to connect to the class.
The next could be SOCIAL BARRIER where in students are unable to demonstrate. The teachers can help students to overcome this by keeping the content size small, repeated explanation followed by instant memory recall. Students can be encouraged to keep writing instruments ready before the class so that they write down what the teacher teaches and then they could be asked to respond to the questions asked. Tools such as Google forms, Google classrooms etc could be used for short tests.
To deal with MOTIVATIONAL BARRIERS activities such as Music, yoga , virtual museum tours could be organised. Work submitted by students that are par excellence should be shared with other students to give them recognition.
The webinar was engaging and included all the common points which are under discussion in our own school as well. The problems faced all over are same and everyone is still in the process of learning.
The various assessment and teaching platforms suggested were- Google Classroom, Google Meet, Whiteboard.fi, flippity.net, Peer Desk, DESMOS, Education Perfect, Zoom, CK12 …there are so many and there is so much to learn.
