On 27th July, 2020 we organized Webinar for Past & Present Leaf Students with the purpose on how they can put their learning into practice and what environmental activities they did during lockdown.

23 students joined us through google meet. We started webinar with Welcoming Speech & introduction. Mrs. Archana gave presentation on Child and Environment. Trupti Parmar was the moderator for the day.

Mr. Jothi did interaction with the students and inspired them. Ms. Monica and Ms. Priyanka also shared their experience with the students. This webinar was student oriented so we gave more time to them to share what work they have done for nature. After sharing we discussed about Action Plan.

ENABLING TEACHERS WITH E-SKILLS

It has been a challenging time for all the teachers all around the world because of Covid-19 Pandemic. In the context of the digital divide and lack of infrastructure and experience in online education, teachers are forced to improvise and innovate with available technology.

Keeping in mind the challenges and problems faced by the teachers regarding technology for online education, GJEM organized Online Teaching-Learning Workshop at St. Xavier's English Medium School, Borsad and St. Xavier’s School, Bharuch. The thrust of the workshop was that the teachers can adapt their content to online education and find innovative ways to reach out to rural students.

Instead of duplicating classroom teaching, we inspired the teachers to use short films for education as well as activity modules available from www.arvindguptatoys.com. Inspired by the tremendous response we received from the teachers, we decided to organize a webinar on the same topic. We received good response for the event which was organized on 17th and 18th July 2020 in which 53 teachers from 19 schools had participated

The keynote address was given by Fr. Lancy D’Cruz SJ. Our IT expert resource person Mr Shashi Darshan besides giving a detailed presentation on the google classroom tried to address the technical queries from the teachers.

We thank all the principals and teachers who participated in the workshop.

The workshop was conducted for teachers of St. Xavier’s school, Bharuch on 10th July 2020. 20 teachers participated in the workshop. Three topics were included in the workshop:

Environmental Education through Films
Online Education
Google Forms.

The first session was on short films. We kept open discussion after the films. Each one them interpreted in their own way and made it more interesting.

The second session was conducted by Mrs. Archana on Online Education through PPT. After the session the teachers also shared how they use different methods for online education and make the lessons easy interesting for students.

The third session was conducted by Mr. Jothi on Teaching Pedagogy and how to create Google forms. The teachers tried to create google forms so that they can use for online education. We suggested them to prepare questions on environmental films and send it with short films to the students. With this we concluded our workshop.
