Catering to COVID Times Boldly as a Learner
- A learner
The module exhibits strategies towards coping with the Post COVID-19 times and getting ready to be normal in the new normal by executing the task of living with the covid through measures and support system of self care and social distancing with positive motivation and at ease and comfort. The learning has to be on and executable with the march of time and tide.
Fun in classrooms is a requisite. As teachers, we must not use technology as a silicon coating but harness the power of technology to connect with our students. No more, it is about copying and pasting, which we have had been doing over the years. To control corrupt politicians, PowerPoint corrupts the teachers if it has just slides and no explanations. For a matter of thought and intelligence, the platform should share for show rather than expecting it to be the only parcel for knowledge delivery. There is a specific need to implement a new way of teaching through technology, and hence a digital pedagogy is required the most. The teachers need to introspect how children may learn in this networked environment. We can’t simply take a textbook and deliver it digitally; somewhat, the need here is to explore the power to harness the best via connectivity and creativity to connect.
We can’t think and re-discover the chalkboard and make it an intelligent board to deliver knowledge. What is required is a novel mindset of love, care, and delivery of priorities for our children within classrooms. We ultimately need a different paradigm for teaching, a different pedagogy that talks about creation, control of chaos, connection to correcting, and consumption to creation. The teachers need to change their thinking of how they are going to use technology in education.
Have great learning. Cheers.
The priority in particular at large!
