Webinar on Green Teachers Program
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
Following topics were included for the webinar: Pedagogy for online education, Environmental activities through the online, demonstration on google forms and google classroom and learning science and maths through Dr Arvind Gupta’s online modules. 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.
