Rural Education in COVID Times

Key Take-Aways

  1. We all need to continuously think out of the box on how to have our children meaningfully engaged so that they continue to learn during the course of this pandemic.
  2. Teaching should shift from teacher intensive to learner intensive. Education should shift to exploration mode.(Prasoon Sir)
  3. We have to learn to develop a response to new reality – where COVID could be long-lasting. Govt. should devise a plan where schools are operating in two shifts, and start a vaccination drive. (Chandamma Ma’am)
  4. We all should take personal responsibility to tackle these challenges.
  5. Education facilitates socio-economic mobility. Without proper education we cannot bridge the gap between India and Bharat. The gap is stretching due to COVID. (Nishant Sinha)
  6. Digital learning is a specialized skill. And not all teachers are trained to handle this shift.(Nishant Sinha)
  7. We should arrest the academic lag so that going back to mainstream education should not become a challenge.
  8. Synergy of efforts by every stakeholder – Schools, teachers, government, parents, even corporates should be on the same platform to work towards the mission of there not being any lag in the education and no drop-out. (Nishant Sinha)
  9. The larger aim of education is to help students become independent learners (Prasoon Sir)
  10. Use their available surroundings as a resource to facilitate education.
  11. Engaging kids physically by teaching them skills such as games, kitchen garden, engaging them in a way they will grow. To help them develop skills with resources around them. For example teaching rural kids farming (a surrounding they are familiar with). We should stay user-friendly, meaningfully engaged in activities that will help them in building their future, helping kids move towards innovation in ingenious ways.Kids should be taught to evaluate what to do, and what to do in times of challenges. (Chandamma ma’am)
