Q4: How can a Class III student use these technologies? Aren’t we making it more difficult for them?

Research has proved that the cognitive skills of a child start developing at an early age. Therefore, the earlier a child learns to use educational tools and technologies, the better. You may have noticed that the favourite toy of your two-year old is actually your mobile phone or your laptop! In the lower grades, children are more receptive to new learning methodologies, innovative educational toys and tools, and they have a greater appetite for learning and knowledge.

Providing a child with the support of the Mi Class environment lays the foundation for strong academic performance and development of the Next Generation skills early on in life.

Q5: What is wrong with learning by rote if my students are getting good marks?

Rote-based learning enables students to remember concepts long enough to write their exams. However, rote learning is not very effective if the objective is to enable learners to understand and apply knowledge in real life, or to use their knowledge to analyse facts and arrive at certain conclusions.

At NLC, we customise teaching methodologies based on the objectives of learning:

Remember – Understand – Apply – Analysis – Evaluate – Create.

We ensure that students get opportunities to revise and apply what is taught in school. This improves their understanding and retention of concepts, and helps them get even better scores.

Q6: How will the training help me and my students?

Traditional 20th century teaching methods are all about treating the child as a vessel for information. It follows a text-book driven approach, and is based on memorisation of discrete facts. It is really up to the students to learn the facts presented.

However, 21st century teaching methods are about kindling a fire within the student to discover the world outside. The focus is on inducing learning in such a way that students can transfer the knowledge they have acquired in real life situations.

Q7: I am not comfortable using computers. Will this training help me get rid of this fear?

The teacher training programme will definitely help you in integrating modern teaching methods in your classroom. Devices and technologies these days have become quite user-friendly, and there is no need to be intimidated by technology any more. A bit of training and practice will enable you to reach out and become a global citizen, quickly!
