These stories bring together a string of endearing characters, in familiar settings, trying oh-so-hard to navigate through a problem or question that can be answered with the help of a little Math.

English is difficult for bihar students...

By Kamalyadav | May 1, 2018

The most of the students are studying in hindi medium school . They usually use their mother tongue in their home. They study mathematics and science in hindi medium till class tenth but they have to study every subject in English medium in higher secondary. Therefore only few can continue their study in science streams . Mainly they faced language problems because their concepts in maths and science are good.

Talking about teaching of languages raises a lot of questions in our mind such as what is language, how is it learnt etc. And as we try to understand these questions, the main point which emerges is that language is usually considered to be a medium of expression or is a means of exchanging ideas. When we look at the language in such a limited sense, then our perspective on language teaching also narrows down. And if our thinking about the nature of the subject is limited, then it would certainly impact the way we teach that subject.

If innocence had an animation video writ on every frame, Bhimsain's 1974 classic Ek Anek Ekta wins hands down as far as two generations of Indians are concerned.

Reading, as we are aware, is a great source for knowledge. The importance of reading has increased even more, in today’s digitised world. However, as a teacher I feel that our children read less despite the fact that they have more access to reading content. They sit glued watching television, or play with smart phones and other devices. These devices are seemingly entertaining but children do not realize that the devices eat into their valuable time making them couch potatoes at a very young age.

Hi people! Am Anamika, a newbie here

Hi, I am Anamika Khanna, a blogger and instructional writer by profession, I had to curate content on related topics for education and learning and developing. Basically, as a part of my job I had been understanding the gaps, perspectives of adapting to the changing education pattern, particularly because too much is happening within the education sector, particularly because of a shift in doing the courses online! Accordingly, technological know-how has a great possibility to flourish, here I would like to know ideas of the same and share some interesting ideas if I can come up with.

Humans are visual creatures and we can easily learn things when we see it. This is why it is important for you as a teacher to innovate your teaching methods using the advantage of technology. In fact, you’ll see a lot of changes in the field of education in current times. Not to mention the use of smart boards, online learning and paperless schools.

We had a big hall in our previous school which we used as a book distribution area because there was no library as such in our rented premises. It was different from the usual library as it did not have shelves, chairs and tables and reading corners. However, this didn’t mean we restricted our students from reading. We arranged the necessary resources for reading to them. From the beginning, there was no specific structure in the functioning of our library.

It was very early days in a new school. Also it was a new experience for me to be a facilitator of English in a school where English was the second language. I found that English was a ‘Monster’ in the mind of every child, especially in upper- primary classes because they don’t get any hearing input from outside or from their environment (where listening is the first step to learn any language).
