A Murali Mukund
Chairman, Jubilee Hills Public School, Hyderabad shares case studies on the Emerging Teaching-Learning Pedagogies in the School

Jubilee Hills Public School (JHPS), one of the pioneers in India to set up digital technology as early as 2006 with I-Boards in all the classrooms, takes various steps to ensure that innovative teaching is incorporated into the teaching and learning process. JHPS is also one of the few schools that have a state-of-the-art audio visual studio where lessons are recorded and streamed to the students at home to complement classroom and flipped learning.

The period duration of 55 minutes with 20 minutes allocated to technology usage also gives a clear demarcation for interactive teaching and technology usage, living up to the school’s motto of ‘Tradition with Technology’.

In JHPS, blended learning is done in two ways:

  • Lab Rotation Model
  • Flipped Classroom

The case studies of some concepts are presented below:

Computer-Class IX: Visual Basic Programming – Lab Rotation Model: Teachers introduced designing of the basic programming, with a session in the lab where students designed, developed and solved real-time problems.English-Class V: Blogs were created and an article was uploaded for students to identify the various tenses.

Mathematics-Class V: Decimals: Overview of fraction through a video to be watched at home and activity sheets to be  filled. Assessment was done in the classroom through a pictorial representation of decimals.

Social Studies-Class III: Students collaborated with Class II students of Propel Montour Charter School, USA. The students in America were learning about India. Information was given through Facetime and Skype video conferencing. Our students also learnt a lot, as they themselves had to research about India to be able to help the American students. Through all these modules, it was observed that the performance showed a marked improvement of student learning from 60 per cent to 80 per cent. Though it is often said that use of technology reduces family and social interaction, it was observed to be the reverse as teachers and parents became involved in the research and helped students soar to success.
