A session for pre primary – Math and Science teachers was conducted by Jodo Gyan organisation which develops and implements innovative methods
We often talk about how we cannot teach the younger generation using old practices and the importance of conceptual learning. But how do we implement it? Jodo Gyan’s workshop talks all about how to improve our teaching practices to bridge the gap between child’s world and teaching methodologies. Jodo Gyan is an organisation which develops and implements innovative methods in Mathematics and Science.
The objective of the workshop was to change abstract Mathematical learning to concrete learning as children learn better when they touch, feel and visualize. Illuminating pedagogical ways to teach Mathematics at the primary level were discussed in the session.
A session for the pre-primary teachers was conducted on 27th January 2021 and was attended by about 80 teachers across the country. Ms. Sudha and Ms. Susan-Pre-Primary teachers and Ms. Trisha, Vice Principal attended the session. Numerous activities were carried out by the resource team using Jodo Gyan material beads, blocks, dice, dough, leaves, dolls made of socks, empty number lines etc.
Ms. Kamlesh Bahukhandi, Ms. Roshni Sancheti, Ms Minakshi Arya, Ms. Aishwarya Prodduturi and Ms.Thelma Shalini joined teachers across the country in Jodo Gyan’s Mathematics, grades 1 & 2 workshop, on 29th January 2021.
Ms. Trisha Chakraborty, Vice Principal, and the mentors, Ms.Vignatha and Ms.Swapna, attended the workshop for grades 3 to 5 on 1st February 2021. All the activities taken up were designed to make children visualise Mathematics.
“The objective of the teacher and the purpose of a child’s learning need not be the same” was a beautiful thought which summed up the whole session.
