The long lockdown for the COVID-19 pandemic has closed schools, colleges and other educational institutions and ushered in the citywide classroom: tens and thousands of students in cities and towns are glued to computers and smartphone screens as teachers take to online apps for lectures, tutorials and assessments. However, e-learning poses a challenge to both teachers and students over technology and ability to replicate the same physical classroom experience in the virtual environment.
In this context, ICT Academy proposes "Teachers Empowerment Program" to train 1,000 teachers of govt. schools in rural regions of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Gujarat on digital teaching skills. The project will prepare teachers of rural India for the new journey. This will also help teachers of schools change their teaching style to meet the demands of this new digital world and make the virtual classroom a great learning environment. The program will provide the teachers to achieve their teaching goals, motivate students to learn from isolation, promote team work in digital space and assess their knowledge with / without exams or assignments. Even post the pandemic, this course will enable teachers to use the digital tools effectively in the live classroom environment.
