KVs have taken their classroom curriculum on the virtual platform to help students learn amidst lockdown. Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has asked its regional offices to explore the available resources. Each avenue will be explored to maintain the continuum of learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Every principal will be responsible to implement the “action points” as disclosed by an HRD Ministry official.
“We have shared some action points with all principals…An essential protocol has also been designed for online classes to be conducted by our teachers,” the official confirmed.
Various arrangements are lined up to help the sessions kick-start. “We have also shared the schedule of lessons of the recorded and live programmes of National Institute of Open Learning for secondary and senior secondary classes from their Swayam Prabha portal commencing from April 7, 2020”
A selected list of teachers, as nominated by the KVs, will be available to answer students’ queries during the live session. The learners will be communicated via Skype and Live Web Chat. In this regard, each teacher has been assigned with the task of creating additional notes. The content will centre around the subjects broadcasted on the particular day and help students with their doubts. If nobody is raising their doubts during the live session, then the notes will be sent via PPT and other suitable teaching tools.
