Govt school sets an example in innovative teaching

Government Lower Primary School in Mullur teacher C S Satish stays connected with his students through conference calls.

A government school has set an example by applying technology to make the process of teaching more interesting.

The Government Lower Primary School in Mullur has adopted the conference call technology available in smartphones to ensure that the students do not miss the lessons.

During the academic year, students lost many school hours owing to holidays declared following the natural calamity, the demise of leaders, various jayantis and so on.

There was a need to complete the syllabus and also to prepare students for examinations. Therefore, to stay connected with his students, school teacher C S Satish came up with an idea of ‘conference call teaching’.

“Initially, lessons and notes were shared by forming groups on WhatsApp. Eventually, the conference call feature was used to teach the lessons to students after the school hours, between 7 pm and 9 pm, as an alternative to extra classes. At a time, seven to eight students can be connected in the line. A timetable is drawn in this regard. Currently, students of classes three, four and five are taught using the innovative method. Parents of the students too have responded positively to the experiment. The method is mainly used for revision of the lessons,” said Satish.
