The school will have a task force team especially constituted to ensure proper safety and hygiene and will have training of staff for survival skills, says Jyoti Arora, Principal, Mount Abu Public School in a conversation with Elets News Network (ENN).
COVID 19 has revolutionized the education sector with the advent of online teaching, which otherwise had been a wild dream. These challenging times have made every educator take the best of opportunity to make the learning environment regular and smooth .I strongly feel that the strength lies in the faculty and institute nurture. Faculty need to change their mundane teaching methods and adapt to evolving technology-centred teaching. The faculty will have to establish themselves as “competent” individuals who can deliver what the students expect.
We are happy to see that we are successfully dealing with the COVID times through online sessions for the students, so now the challenge before everyone is the Post COVID learning when the schools physically open for the learners .In view of the upcoming challenges post covid ,the school has designed its SOP for post COVID challenges so that the students learning goes on smoothly with all the safety measures .The school will ensure the adherence to norms of social distancing according to the orders by Health Department in the school.
The school will have a task force team especially constituted to ensure proper safety and hygiene and will have training of staff for survival skills. Zones will be demarcated as Red, Orange and Green and only that sports will be taken wherein appropriate distance can be maintained among the players.
In order to avoid commotion ,the school will have staggered arrivals and departures and the students and other members will undergo thermal screening before boarding the bus and hands free sanitizers will be placed for hygiene .The washrooms will be having contact less taps with foot tapping valves. Moreover the school will be run in shifts for all the classes and SOP must be implemented seriously and monitored and supervised by the authorities regularly. The school will also have a quarantine zone to handle the cases, if any.
A school is not paradise. But school is a place where paradise can be created”. It continued in the same vein with the thought, “The classroom with all its limitations, remains a location of great possibility” so the classes will be held with class wise division of students for50 PERCENT offline and 50 PERCENT online classes so that every student gets benefit at large . The whole building will be sanitized once the children and staff are inside the premises.
So I would say that nothing is so tough that it cannot be accomplished .We, as educators, are trained to grab everyopportunity to make the best use of it especially when it is the question of our young learners who are our future leaders. In fact, I should say that real success in life does not come to you by following the already set trend ,rather it comes to you when one thinks out of the box and avail the best chance to make the existing system run smoothly. So Post-COVID Teaching learning techniques is yet another discovery which will surely bring a new transformation in schooling but will also benefit the future generations.
Someone has rightly said that “In a world where knowledge is a mouse-click away, the role of the educator must change too.
