The success of the virtual session depends on a lot of factors like technical, student-teacher bonding, and online assignments. Planning plays a pivotal role which includes Collaborative meetings for taking inputs across the grade, resource generation for interactive learning slides and stories/videos to mark the foundation and help in delivering the subject.
One of the concepts we introduced in Grade 1 through the virtual session is “Water is essential for life on Earth and is a limited resource”. Students had the opportunity to experience the sources of the content, express their ideas and were actively participating in the session as a physical classroom. Students were collaborating in a virtual classroom environment through a variety of content Presentation and learning activities like text, images, diagrams, audio, and video.
This tremendous learning opportunity helps in focused learning, the key is to have a healthy learning environment. Creating an atmosphere of positive feedback by guiding the group’s interaction is the key role played by the facilitator.
