11 May The Digital Transition – Online Classes at The New Public School, Chandigarh
As it is apparent that the world is going through a pandemic and schools have been shut for almost a year. Schools waited till now thinking that the situation will get better and the school will be opening soon, but as we can see the odds of opening schools are quite thin for the coming months. Because of this unfortunate scenario, the future of our students cannot be put at stake, at the same time lives of students cannot be risked by opening schools.
Therefore, the central and state governments have decided that the physical attendance of any student is not mandatory for the academic session of 2021-22. Orders issued by the government and the schools were told that the teaching and learning activities may be initiated for all the students through the digital mode of education for this academic session.
Various schools in Chandigarh have commenced the classes through the digital medium. It is the best way to keep the learnings going in the existing circumstances. Without going out, students will be able to put up with their lessons.
Since the COVID pandemic, normal lifestyle has come to a halt across the globe, and the virtual world has become a new normal. Amongst everything schools have also switched to the virtual world keeping the motto of learning must go on. Educational institutions around the world are doing everything to deliver the best feasible education to students. The Digital model of education has come to the rescue and provides schooling from pre-primary to university level.
Learning in covid time has changed completely. Online education has appeared as a substitute for conventional face to face lectures. Various private and government organisations are trying their best to assist the students to keep the learning going on.
