Potato of my Classroom

Published

on

Yes, you read it correct. Am I referring to a real or metaphorical potato? Give it a guess now. What it could be? Of course, the real potato could be used as a visual aid to talk about shape and size in early years classroom or it could be used to understand the concept of heavy objects sinking in water. Art specialists would use it as a stencil and mathematicians may use it to explore weight and measurement. Physics students might use the same potato for lighting a bulb, while chemistry and biology students might want to explore its atomic nature and reactions.

Great guessing, as all the above guesses are correct. In addition to the above we also have another potato there, waiting to adjust to our needs and requirements. Let me give you another clue by tickling your critical thinking skill.

Potato : Cooking :: ________ : Teaching

Bulls eye! Now you have got it. Just like potato, which can be used anywhere and in any form of cooking, stories too can be used anywhere and in any form within the teaching and learning process. They gel very well with all resources , concept and caters for varied requirements of a classroom setting.

Potato : Cooking :: Stories : Teaching

Stories are at the core of all our memories, we seem to have inbred liking for them, and students are no different from us. Stories teach us everything about life and when used within the four walls of classroom they can create magic. Let us understand why, how, and what is behind this magic.

Why is Storytelling the most effective Teaching Tool?

  • Oldest form of education– Even before the invention of language man has been telling stories to teach his leanings in form of cave paintings. Later he used signs and symbols to express his feelings.
  • Emotional connect – stories go straight to heart. Information and facts will be forgotten, but incidences are remembered in form of stories.
  • Motivates and encourages– It is Scientifically proven. According to Paul Zak, a neuroscientist, when we listen to stories, chemicals like dopamine and oxytocin are released which help in increased motivation and attention.
  • Makes us open minded – Stories have been used to pass down beliefs, traditions, and history to future generations, thus appreciate cultures. They are very resourceful in creating awareness and being responsible global citizens.
  • Stimulates the imagination – Stories transport us to a different world altogether, thus tickling and stimulating our imagination, which might lead to innovation.
  • Boosts memory – They are easy to remember. Psychologist Peg Neuhauser states that learning which results from a well-told story is remembered more precisely and for longer duration in contrast to learning from facts and figures. Jerome Bruner’s, another psychologist supports the above study through his research which suggest that facts are 20 times more likely to be remembered if they’re part of a story.
  • Develops skills – listening is the first and most basic skill developed through stories. Listening is not only an essential survival skill but also it is imperative for developing other soft skills as well, namely comprehension, critical thinking to begin with. Stories are also helpful in painting the larger umbrella of communication skill with special reference to writing and retelling stories.
  • Foresee the unseen – enable children to empathise with unfamiliar people/places/situations. offer insights into universal life experiences

When and Where can is Stories be used as teaching Tool?

  • As a brain breaker – To break the monotony and promotes a feeling of well-being and relaxation
  • To share personal experiences. – Increase children’s willingness to communicate thoughts and feelings
  • To introduce a new topic – Leaving a story unfinished will help students think. This can serve as a provocation to build the lesson on.  From English to math, art to science, each and every topic could be covered through story.
  • To illustrate a concept – painting a pen picture for students helps in presentation skill as well.
  • As outcome of a lesson- students can be motivated to create own stories using the newly learnt concept. Once involved their learning outcomes is not only better understood but also raises more questions in the young minds.
  • To help children consider new ideas and explore new concepts. Encourage use of imagination and creativity
  • Increase verbal proficiency – follow up activity after the stories ensures using the newly learnt words becomes a part of their vocabulary.
  • Stories are very good assessment tools as well. They help us set the stage for assessment and then students analyze, think and come up with appropriate solutions and endings.

Who can benefit from the tool of stories?

  • All classes from PreK to K12 all look forward to stories.
  • To cater to VAK needs of students as there is something for everyone in a story.
  • Stories can be read, seen or heard catering to individual needs.
  • Stories can be used as differential tasks as well catering to needs of higher order thinking students as well.
  • Stories help build up connect between the teller and listeners. They also help in enhancing social skills within the class.

What concepts and Which Stories can be used as teaching Tool?

Now that’s where the potato nature of stories come in.  Stories are multitalented and multi-faceted and can suit all purposes, meet every need. It is on the teacher within you to design the best story to meet your objectives. However below are few tips which might come handy.

As per the audience – any story which your audience would connect to will work for you. Story, its language and the props used should be age appropriate. One of the earliest examples of story as a teaching tool which comes to my mind is the one which taught me, that while subtracting, I need to keep the bigger number on top.

If you have 6 candies, can you give me 10.

Yes or no, whatever the answer would be, it will certainly lead to learning. Learning not only about numbers, but also soft skill of critical thinking, reflecting and communicating. One tool, one story can change the way we teach and learn.

  • As per the lesson objectives – List out the learning objectives you are aiming at during the lesson. Identify the key words from the goals. Use them for building up the story / adapting an old story.
  • Follow up activity – story should be able to accommodate a follow up activity for students to reflect.
  • Story Structure – selected story could have a set structure as per the story mountain or could be tweaked to meet your requirements. For example : I had once tweaked the story of “ How the Kangaroo got its pouch” to introduce the continent of Australia to first graders.

All the above points reinforce my belief in stories, their power and magic. To conclude for an educator  STORY spells out as Strategic Tools to Optimize Reflections Yummily.

Image Source- Pexels

Delhi, June 17, 2024: PeakMind, a leading mental wellness platform, has unveiled a comprehensive survey highlighting significant mental health challenges faced by students in the Delhi/NCR region. The survey, conducted among over 10,000 students nationwide, revealed that 28% of the respondents were from Delhi/NCR, providing valuable insights into the unique challenges faced by students in this area.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has introduced a revamped curriculum and credit framework for postgraduate programmes, aligning with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. This new framework offers flexibility and mobility by allowing Indian universities to admit students twice a year and enabling students to opt out after the first year of a two-year programme. The framework is designed to cater to the evolving educational needs, providing diverse options such as one-year and two-year PG programmes, PG diplomas, and integrated five-year Bachelor’s/Master’s programmes.

UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar emphasized that this initiative aims to provide students with more freedom and choice in their academic paths. “The framework, with no discipline-specific entry requirements, outlines the credits and academic structure for both one-year and two-year PG programmes. Flexibility and mobility are its key features,” Kumar stated.

The NEET Debacle: Understanding the Issue and Looking Ahead

Published

on

Image Source- ANI

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has recently found itself at the centre of a significant controversy concerning the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Undergraduate) 2024. This examination, pivotal for aspiring medical students, has been marred by issues surrounding the awarding of grace marks to 1,563 candidates due to a loss of examination time. The Supreme Court has since intervened, and the situation has evolved rapidly. Here, we dissect the events that led to this debacle and explore the steps being taken to address it.

The Emergence of the Controversy

The NTA conducted the NEET UG 2024 across 571 cities, including 14 international locations, on May 5. This year’s results, announced earlier this month, revealed an unprecedented 67 candidates achieving a perfect score of 720/720. This exceptional performance raised eyebrows and led to scrutiny over the fairness of the examination process.

Concerns were specifically raised regarding the grace marks awarded to 1,563 candidates who experienced a loss of exam time. This decision led to petitions being filed with the Supreme Court, demanding the cancellation of the results and questioning the integrity of the examination process.

The Committee’s Formation and Findings

In response to the uproar, the Ministry of Education and the NTA constituted a special four-member committee. This committee included a former UPSC chairman, a member from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), a representative from the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), and another UPSC member. The committee’s task was to review the circumstances under which grace marks were awarded and to recommend a course of action.

Supreme Court’s Intervention

The Supreme Court, upon hearing the petitions, was informed by the NTA that the grace marks awarded to the 1,563 candidates would be cancelled. Instead, these candidates would be given the option to retake the examination on June 23. Those opting not to retake the exam would have their results based on the actual marks they scored without the grace marks.

The Decision to Retest

Advertisement

The NTA’s decision, as presented to the Supreme Court, means that the scorecards issued on June 4 for the affected students will be withdrawn. These students will now receive their actual scores, sans compensatory marks. For those who choose to retake the exam, their new scores will replace the original ones. The results of the retest are expected to be announced before June 30, ensuring the counselling process scheduled to begin on July 6 remains unaffected.

Key Dates and Processes

  • Retest Date: June 23, 2024
  • Result Declaration: Before June 30, 2024
  • Counselling Begins: July 6, 2024

Details of the Controversy

The NEET UG 2024 saw around 39 lakh candidates register, with approximately 24 lakh of these for the Class 10 exams. The affected examination centres included locations in Chhattisgarh (Balod and Dantewada), Meghalaya, Surat, Haryana’s Bahadurgarh, and Chandigarh. The decision to award grace marks was based on a normalisation formula derived from a 2018 Supreme Court judgment related to a similar incident in the CLAT exam. This formula adjusted candidates’ scores based on time lost and their answering efficiency.

The controversy over the awarding of grace marks arose from concerns that it led to an inflated performance, questioning the examination’s fairness. The committee, in its meetings, proposed that the scorecards of the affected candidates be cancelled and a retest offered to ensure transparency and maintain the examination’s integrity.

Government and Court Responses

Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has come out in support of the NTA, asserting that there is no evidence of a paper leak and that allegations of corruption are unfounded. He described the NTA as a credible body and urged that the process be allowed to proceed without further disruptions.

The Supreme Court, for its part, has been keen to ensure that the retesting process is conducted smoothly and that the counselling and admissions processes are not delayed. It emphasised the importance of maintaining the timeline for counselling and admissions to avoid further complications for the candidates.

The Way Forward

The NEET UG 2024 controversy highlights the challenges in administering large-scale examinations and the importance of maintaining transparency and fairness. The NTA’s decision to retest the affected candidates is a significant step towards restoring trust in the examination process.

Candidates now have the option to either accept their original scores, minus the grace marks, or retake the examination. This approach aims to balance fairness with practicality, ensuring that students are given a fair chance while maintaining the integrity of the examination process.

As the situation unfolds, the focus will remain on ensuring that the retest is conducted smoothly and that all stakeholders are kept informed. The lessons learned from this incident will hopefully lead to improved processes and greater transparency in future examinations.

UGC Allows Indian Universities to Offer Admissions Twice a Year

Published

on

In a significant policy shift, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has approved biannual admissions for Indian universities and higher education institutions, starting from the next academic year. Admissions will now be available in January/February and July/August, providing more opportunities for students who miss the initial cycle due to various reasons.

UGC Chairman Professor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar explained that this move will reduce wait times for enrollment, increase student motivation, and enhance employment opportunities by allowing industries to conduct campus recruitment twice a year.

Previously, biannual admissions were permitted for Open and Distance Learning (ODL) and Online modes, which saw nearly half a million additional students enrolling. Encouraged by this success, the UGC extended the policy to regular mode programmes. However, adopting biannual admissions is not mandatory, and institutions must amend their regulations to accommodate this system.

As per the information furnished by the HEls on the UGC DEB portal, in addition to a total of 19,73,056 students were enrolled in July 2022 and an additional 4,28,854 students joined in January 2023 in ODL and online programs.

This change aligns Indian universities with global practices, potentially improving international collaborations and student exchanges. It is expected to increase the Gross Enrolment Ratio and contribute to making India a ‘Global Study Destination’ as envisioned in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

Growing Education Parity in India: The Divide Between Rich and Poor

Published

on

Image Source- Envato Elements

The education gap between wealthier and poorer households in India and much of Asia is widening, exacerbated by the impact of climate change. As Ankush Banerjee highlighted in his article titled “The educational gap between poorer and richer households is growing in India and much of Asia, thanks to climate change” on Business Insider India, the recent heatwaves reaching 47°C forced the Delhi government to close schools early to protect students. However, many private schools remained open, equipped with air conditioning and other amenities, illustrating the disparity between private and public education systems.

The COVID-19 pandemic had already brought attention to the detrimental effects of interrupted schooling, which disproportionately affects disadvantaged students. Climate change-induced disruptions further compound this problem. Poorer families, who often lack resources for remote learning, find their children falling further behind, as high temperatures and extreme weather lead to more frequent school closures.

Education and Economic Disparity

The economic disparity in India has also been growing, with the rich contributing increasingly more to the country’s GDP while the poor struggle to keep up. As reported by Deccan Herald, India’s richest 10% contribute more than half of the country’s GDP, while the bottom 50% contribute only 17%. This wealth gap is mirrored in the education sector, where children from affluent families have access to better educational resources, while those from poorer backgrounds are left to navigate the challenges of underfunded public schools and lack of infrastructure.

The rising costs associated with private education, coupled with the inadequate state of many public schools, mean that poorer families are often unable to afford quality education for their children. This creates a vicious cycle, where lack of education leads to fewer economic opportunities, perpetuating poverty across generations.

Climate Change and Educational Outcomes

As the UNESCO report cited by Banerjee indicates, extreme weather events linked to climate change are causing more frequent and prolonged school closures, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. The heatwaves in India, for instance, have not only led to early school closures but have also significantly impacted students’ academic performance. High temperatures have been associated with lower grades and poorer test results, disproportionately affecting students from poorer households who lack the means to mitigate these impacts.

Remote learning, while a potential solution, poses its own set of challenges. Children from low-income families often lack access to necessary technology and internet connectivity, further widening the educational gap. Additionally, online education cannot replicate the essential one-on-one interactions that are crucial for young learners, particularly those who require more guidance and support.

Addressing the Parity

To bridge this widening gap, there needs to be a concerted effort to improve the quality of public education and make it accessible to all. This includes investing in school infrastructure, providing adequate training for teachers, and ensuring that learning resources are available to every student, regardless of their socio-economic background.

Furthermore, policies should be geared towards making education resilient to climate change. This means building schools that can withstand extreme weather, integrating climate education into the curriculum, and ensuring that contingency plans are in place to minimize disruptions to learning.

The growing educational disparity in India underscores the urgent need for systemic changes. As climate change continues to affect school attendance and performance, it is imperative that steps are taken to ensure that all children, regardless of their socio-economic status, have access to quality education. Only by addressing these issues can we hope to create a more equitable and sustainable future for all.
