Since most of the population in India resides in village and most of the student studies in government schools, is online education inclusive to all students?
The present scenario has jeopardised the educational ecosystem to achieve its objectives. In this regard, multifront reforms are needed for the efficient functioning of the education system in the post-COVID-19 era.
Indian students and parents need to adapt new way of virtual learning.
The new way of online education seems an imposed burden not only on students and parents but also on teachers. It is ruining mental and physical health (to an extent) of students and teachers with increased screentime.
MHRD, under the able guidance of Minister Dr Pokhriyal, has been working hard on integration of technology in education through various initiatives such as Operation Digital Board, E-Pathshala, DIKSHA, VIDYADAAN, SWAYAM, SWAYAM PRABHA and #BharatPadheOnline.
With only 2G connectivity, the transition to this new mode of teaching has not been easy. Two teachers form Jammu tell us about how they are still managing to teach their students against all odds.
With the innovative and increasing use of technology to cheat during traditional examinations our method to evaluate students, needs to be seriously re-looked into.
