Adapting to the ongoing situation of lockdown, various private schools in city are declaring results for senior classes through social media applications. Resorting to such measures, they say, is the most logical solution to avoid delay learning process in children.
“While results for primary classes had already been out before the shutdown, the results for Class VI to IX are being released through WhatsApp. Parents are being informed about their child’s evaluation and the subjects that need to be paid more attention,” said Senior Study School Principal Upasana Mehra.
DAV Public School Principal Neera Sharma said results of senior classes have been posted on the school’s website. “Though results of students were released online, we are also apprising parents about their child’s performance,” she said. Apart from the practice of online result announcement, several schools are ready to begin with new session through online classes.
“We are preparing lessons for the new session and our teachers will be using alternate learning tools such as storytelling, PPTs, graphics and other applications to share lessons with children. We have also briefed parents to chip in with e-learning and engage with children at home,” said Upasana. Most private schools in the city are following same method to ensure that studies continue as usual when schools resume.
“It is imperative, in the current scenario, to make sure that the students do not lag behind or miss out on their course and syllabus. Our teachers are working from home in a collaborative manner to design appropriate learning programmes to resume classes through online sessions,” said Neera Sharma.
Government schools too are following the suit. Deputy DEO Rekha Mahajan had shared that government middle and high schools were working towards sharing lessons through online applications such as WhatsApp.
