Identifying Learning Difficulties, Classroom Management Strategies.
The session was a sequel to the webinar held online by Mrs. Padma. It began with the narration of a story The Invisible Boy - a gentle story that teaches how small acts of kindness can help children feel included and allow them to flourish. It spoke about exploring a child’s sense of belongingness, showing how one person can make a difference.
The idea that a teacher wears many hats was discussed: mentor, manager, administrator and an educator. He/she is in a position to make a difference in every child’s life. An activity was conducted to make teachers understand and identify the challenges faced by a child.
The speaker encouraged effective interactive teaching strategies to motivate overall development in the classroom via a group activity (think, pair and share). Teachers were given a case study and were asked to come up with possible solutions to help that child in need.
Resource persons: Mrs. Chitra Ramarajan and Mrs. Meera Vikram Innovative and Creative Teaching Techniques The biggest challenge a teacher faces is capturing the student’s attention, and putting across ideas in such a way that it stays with them long after they have left the classroom. This challenge was the main key point which was addressed by the experts from Banjara Academy through stories and activities. The use of innovative methods in educational institutions has the potential not only to improve education, but also to empower people, strengthen governance and galvanize the effort to achieve human developmental goals. Teachers were encouraged to be inventive and creative while they continue to discover and devise new methods and content to ensure that students always get the best learning experiences.
