Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. – Albert Einstein
Hello friends, after a prolonged lull the children are all set to start the normal schooling again. It’s really unbelievable that the children have more or less had been confined to the four walls of their homes for two long years. Whatever education they received was through online classes and excluding a small section of interested children, most of them had largely ignored the proceedings. As there were no face to face interaction with the teachers, the students have become quite accustomed to a laid back attitude towards their studies.
It’s now matter of great importance to initiate them once again to the classroom way of transfer of learning. It’s yet to be ascertained that in what extent their learning ability have been adversely affected by the forced disruption. But it will certainly take a while to aclimatise them to the habbit of attending school and grasping the matter taught in classes. Their attention deficit would pose a great challenge to the teachers to deal with it comprehensively.
The toddlers, who have begun their education during the pandemic might have to face bigger problem in adjusting themselves to the school environment. But the positive side is that the children have greater capability of adaptation and resilience than the elders. Hopefully they would soon take to it as the fishes learn to swim in water.
As a new appointee teacher, I feel it my upmost responsibility towards nurturing them back to healthy environment of learning. As the saplings need greater attention and care to grow into a robust tree, similarly the children require optimum condition of empathy, understanding, encouragement and discipline to turn them into a balanced and well educated human beings. In this endeavor, a greater co-ordination and interaction between the teachers and the parents is required.
The children are the future of all the nations of the world. If they get a good upbringing, can become responsible citizens, taking active and progressive part in changing the destiny of their country. The need is to give them right education, grooming and teaching them life skills to make them worthy of taking on any challenges in life without depending on others to rescue them.
As a responsible adults, we must show them the right way to navigate along the vast ocean called life. We have to make them battle hardy, so that they don’t flinch in front of any storm and surge ahead with confidence and grit.
Thanks for reading the post. Wish you all health and happiness.
Adieu for now.
