The Uninterrupted Learning experience at Oakridge Gachibowli
Amid the second wave of the COVID-19 crisis, parents have become highly critical about their child’s wellbeing and holistic development. The biggest challenge during this crisis was for the early graders who were getting their first exposure to school through online mediums. Many cases have been witnessed where parents were seen to postpone the decision of their child’s education.
It is important that a crisis does not disrupt any child’s education. A well-balanced virtual learning programme helps in maintaining the intellectual sustenance and development in early learners instead of making them go through a long period of idleness till the schools reopen in the distant future.
On the other hand, parents were predictably, confused, and worried about the screen time for their children. A blended learning approach, which combines both online and offline activities, helps with screen time management. From experiments to engaging projects, the exciting offline activities provided by the schools have seen higher participation and interaction among its students. More than 5000+ students from across Oakridge International Schools in India, recorded over 7.89 Lakh online sessions since August 2020, showing the sustained interest and engagement with online learning, when carefully blended with offline learning activities.
