Interactive teaching for Virtual Classrooms!

By Sayani Kundu

The adverse effects of the pandemic have been visible in all walks of life, including education. Schools across the world closed in the wake of the pandemic, resulting in new challenges for academicians. The teachers and students who were accustomed to the offline modes had to adjust to the totally unknown and unconventional online mode of teaching.

Although this sounded like a frightening task, teachers have employed the technology and resources at their disposal to support online learning and guarantee top-quality education.

It’s imperative to remember that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy in teaching. Different people have different priorities, and therefore, the resources that are in use are context-dependent. Teachers have also been adopting varied approaches for students with special needs and disabilities as well as for students without access to high-speed internet.

All over the globe, educators are taking a step back to concentrate on what matters the most — and prioritizing the creation of an open channel of communication with students and parents is a vital start. Keeping kids engaged and taking care of their psychological state is of utmost importance in the virtual mode as well.

At this juncture, interactive teaching via audio-visual aids comes in handy. Teachers and instructors have redesigned and repurposed their content through discussion threads, e-books, and curated lists for online delivery. One of the most notable advantages of this is the rise in the diversity of thoughts and informational sources, indicating quality learning.

Times are tough and change is unpredictable. Adapting to the constant change is the only way to sustain one’s morale. For education to thrive, academicians should improve their strategies and optimize the standard of learning for their students.
