To facilitate online learning in state, Punjab has teamed up with Khan Academy for learning taking under the wing as many as 1,200 government high and senior secondary schools spanning across the state. The collaboration will result in extensive training programs for teachers to implement quality online learning across the state.
Additionally, students will benefit from creative learning videos, engaging & fun experiments and dashboards dedicated to personalized learning content. The resources will encourage students to learn at their own pace. The program will create engaging e-learning curriculum covering subjects history, art, economics, science, computer programming and more. Both teachers and students can have their access to the portal free.
Students aged between 11 to 15 will be provided login ID for accessing the Khan Academy portal once the teacher’ training schedule is completed successfully. Students can read the content both in Punjabi and English.
Khan Academy will be responsible for creating videos and experiments through which students can undertake several self-assessments to gauge their academic progress. Children can stay updated on their practice skills and knowledge they had previously acquired on completing a lesson.
The collaboration with Khan Academy for learning by the department will enable the child for self-assessment and can improve his level of understanding of the concepts in mathematics. The students can easily access home assignments through this portal and will get instant feedback on their performance,” commented Krishnan Kumar, school education secretary.
