The parents are struggling to keep pace with technological advancements, the students are still getting used to this format of E- learning, and the teachers are bridging all gaps to ensure a smooth transaction of education. The entire educational fraternity has been hit hard by this jolt of the Covid-19 pandemic, yet each day, we are overcoming struggles and trying to adapt ourselves to virtual learning that has now become a reality.

While we have retreated into a cocoon away from live, personalised classroom learning, the management of all schools acts as the anchor to ensure that we keep our heads above water in these challenging times.

In one such attempt, the publishing house Ratna Sagar, organised a webinar titled : Evolving Paradigms - The Road Ahead, headed by esteemed panelists of top Delhi schools, one of them being our honourable CEO and Chairperson Ms. Anjali Aggarwal, who along with others discussed the multiple facets of education during the ongoing pandemic and the many challenges it is throwing at the education sector.

Aggarwal ma’am spoke on the pressing need of a revised curriculum and how this academic session stands singular and incomparable to the bygone sessions. While maintaining ground on the 10th and 12th standard syllabus, which can be less meddled with by the schools as it is restricted to the directions of the educational board, ma’am gave out a skeleton framework, where the schools can moderate the curriculum for classes upto the 8th standard. A revised academic calendar, minimising cultural events, squeezing the exam time, and giving up on excessive frills were a few suggestions by our honorary speaker.

The highly informative session, attended by our staff members - Ms. Neeru Monga, Ms. Jeetu Bhalla, Ms. Swati Vats, Ms. Divya Magotra, Ms. Disha Seth and Ms. Shumita, highlighted the importance of the learners’ initiative and their ethics and values and resilience that would make this process a smooth and adaptable one. Now education can’t only be content based but has to be self assessed. It is now that we need to think out of the box and learn to be knowledgeable than only to score marks. To prevent ourselves from falling into this existential crisis, the entire educational fraternity needs to put in their efforts so as to yield maximum benefit from it. Concluding on an appreciative note for the teachers, Aggarwal ma’am showed her great faith and gratitude for the educators, boosting their morale and realising their eminent role in the learning process.

“What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor and more unashamed conversation” – Glenn Close.

With a view to building resilient minds, Fortis Healthcare organised an Online Summer Internship Program for Psychology students of Class XI-XII. It was spearheaded by the renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Samir Parikh over a span of two weeks - 11 May to 23 May 2020. The internship brought into light different issues each day - from creating awareness regarding the dearth of the mental health experts in the country to helping the children cope up with their roller coaster of emotions using art- based therapies. The students found themselves making good use of their time during this lockdown by addressing a less-talked about issue like mental health, through the social media platforms. They were asked to initiate a social media project wherein they were asked to create pages on instagram to promote mental health awareness, bust the myths related to the field and provide a safe space for healthy conversations. They were also encouraged to explore the fields of Health Psychology along with an experiential understanding of the notion of 'self'. As long as such budding mental health initiatives help in fostering a change and encouraging dialogue regarding this grave issue, we can expect a brighter and more positive future.

“Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience.” - David Kolb

COE, CBSE organized a workshop titled “Kolb’s Experiential Cycle and its Applications” on 20th May, 2020. The resource person for the workshop was Ms. Anupama Dhawan and was attended by Ms. Deepika Khera, Ms. Jyoti Gulati and Ms. Gunjan Grover.

In times like these where knowledge is available in abundance, and the means to acquire such knowledge are vast, teachers should not merely treat their students as empty cups to be filled with words written in a book. It should be the aim of every teacher to utilize the already lived experiences of the students to create new lessons.

The workshop focused on creating vibrant and participative classrooms for inculcating experience based learning into students with different learning styles. The resource person went on to explain how this experiential learning moves in steps i.e. Experience, Reflection, Generalization and Application. The experiential education model is an enriching circle as the steps involved go around each other to create new concrete experiences.

This kind of learning based on experiences not only helps teachers to cater to different learning styles but also helps in making their students more empowered.

A hassle at this time worsens the situation and things get more procrastinated.

The meeting ended at a happy note giving a useful message of being supportive to everyone at the hour of need.

“Disability is not a brave struggle or courage in the face of adversity. Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live.” - Neil Marcus.

CBSE Centre for Excellence organized a webinar on Multiple Disabilities on 14.05.2020 which was attended by our teachers, Ms. Divya Bajaj, Ms. Rakhi, Ms. Sukriti and Ms. Kanika. The spokesperson, Mr. Rajesh Mishra very nicely explained about all the multiple disabilities common among the children and what teaching methods to be adopted for the well being of the students. He clearly stated that there are two types of disabilities, the intellectual and the physical. The major role of the teachers is to identify the type of disability the child is suffering from and develop teaching strategies accordingly. He emphasized that the teacher should be able to identify the disability as early as possible i.e. early intervention should be there so that the child can be helped to develop to his full potential. Each student with multiple disabilities has his or her own set of skills, strengths and learning needs and right modifications and accommodations in the classrooms can help them grow efficiently. Hence, teachers should support them beyond the confines of classroom. The session was highly insightful and informative wherein the spokesperson clearly supported the idea of inclusive classroom teaching where the kids with multiple disabilities also blossom with other kids.

Therefore, we as teachers need to be challenged, to not to see them as children with disability but as children who have potential, and will continue to bloom.

It was surely an eye opener webinar for us – where we learnt how we can be reflective and objective in our outlook and use gender-neutral language.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Critical thinking is the ability to analyse the way you think and present evidence for your ideas, rather than simply accepting your personal reasoning as sufficient proof. Since it plays an important role in the lives of students, CBSE organized a workshop for teachers who got an opportunity to learn that how can they make their students analyse and think critically in the classroom. Ms. Kalpana Kapoor, who was the resource person for the session, highlighted that how in today's scenario learning is moving towards developing skills that will prepare young people to navigate the real world outside of and after school. It is one skill separating innovators from followers. She also emphasized that critical thinking isn't just about thinking clearly or rationally - it's about thinking independently. She made the session interactive by involving the teachers in some imaginary situations and highlighting that how each one of them thinks differently.
