Due to Coronavirus epidemic, schools are closed due since March. Many new ideas are coming up from teachers to engage students during the lockdown. To impart lessons to students who do not have access to smartphones, government school teachers in Dumka’s Dumarthar village have found a new way to teach.
They created blackboards on the walls of students’ houses to teach them while maintaining social distancing in the view of coronavirus.
Teachers have started ‘shiksha aapke dwaar’ (education at your doorstep) to provide education to children while maintaining social distancing. More than 100 blackboards have been created on walls to teach students at their houses.
Dumka Deputy Commissioner Rajeshwar B lauded the initiative and said that she will motivate other teachers to adopt this method.
Students and parents are very happy with the initiative and hoping that schools will be reopened soon.
Schools and educational institutions in the country are closed in the country since March. However, in the Unlock 4 guidelines, the Ministry of Home Affairs said that students of classes 9 to 12 may be permitted to visit their schools, in areas outside the containment zones only, on a voluntary basis, for taking guidance from their teachers and this will be subject to the written consent of their parents or guardians.
