Views and Reflections

A recent study done by Professor David Simkins of the Rochester Institute of Technology found that roleplaying games (RPGs) like Dungeons and Dragons can be extremely beneficial for students. The research he conducted showed that RPGs boosted learning, improved imagination and stimulated intellectual curiosity. The evidence was compelling - it showed that by playing RPGs, students improved their socio-emotional skills which helped them interact and learn better at school or college. There were also benefits on a wide scale academic level.

As a teacher, I believe that children retain a subject that is delivered in the form of stories far longer than they do through conventional teaching methods. Storytelling, especially in the case of languages, engages children in such an effective manner that they are able to remember concepts or characters for a longer period of time.

“If I summarise the core beliefs and pedagogic practices that we saw in these classrooms, the foremost would be the teachers’ belief that ‘every child can learn; the responsibility is ours.’ These teachers try to make the learning experience interesting for every child and respect the existing knowledge they bring to the classroom, using it to build new knowledge… These teachers help children connect concepts with the world around them…” (S Giridhar, 2019. p122)

Hello Educators, 

How are you doing? How is your online teaching going on? What kind of problems are you facing now?

We have started a social initiative to help and support School teachers, Educators, schools, college lectures to teach online during these global pandemic. 

So many teachers in India have adopted to teach online using live conferencing tools like Zoom, Google Meet, WebEx. Most of teacher, lecturers have learned to teach online using video conferencing tools. 

But there are so many cons of teaching and studying using video conferencing apps.

The concept of Education for All is the foundation for an inclusive society but it cannot be made possible just by extending the existing idea and system of education. A paradigm shift in thinking is required. That is why, it is essential to think about the beliefs, ideologies, practices and resources in the current system of education and assess whether these are appropriate or need fundamental changes.

How conscientiously would our student community learn and understand mutual respect if a school caters to both the disabled and non-disabled children! One such exemplary school that is doing this is GHPS Paper Town, Belagola, Mandya. The initiative by a government school teacher has changed the way children with disabilities are perceived by children studying in a regular school.

Ideally speaking, education should cater to the development of cognition and emotional skills of students, ultimately equipping them with good life skills to face the challenges of the world. It should prepare a student to have a meaningful personal life and at the same time a productive work-life.

Children are a nation’s most valuable asset. It is our responsibility to ensure that every child is able to live a happy and productive life. For this, it is essential to develop their potential to the maximum. Education is an important pre-requisite for empowering and equipping children to meet the challenges of life and helps in their holistic development.
