Many schools and education institutions are embracing the concept of online education, as households in cities have 24-7 electricity and internet connection. While children are bound indoors, they can read stories, help with cooking, drawing, and crafting, playing musical instruments and doing yoga for fitness. Various educational institutions have started offering online classes to their students.
One of schools experimenting with innovation is Brihaspati Vidyasadan School. The school is located at Naxal, Kathmandu. It has started conducting online classes from Tuesday, 7th April 2020. According to Ms. Dolma Lama, teacher and media coordinator of School, students from grade 1 to 10 are being given lessons on Personality Development on project basis. By following the concept of 4 E “Explain, Engage, Expert, Evaluation“, they are giving instructions to children to prepare food at home.
Principle of Brihaspati Vidhyasadan School, Mr. Kumar Thapa said, “For efficiency, we started the classes with vocational and life skill education. Until now, we have 60% of students attending the online class. If the circumstances remain the same, we will publish the results of the exam online. We conducted our final terminal exam within 5th Chaitra, 2076 as a preventive measure from Corona Virus.”
