Message from Ashish Rajpal: Concrete Steps to Engage Children and Prepare Teachers for teaching Online
Dear XSEED School Leaders, Alumni & Parents,
It’s been a difficult time for almost everybody around the world, but some are suffering a lot more. Our thoughts are foremost with those directly affected by the virus — we wish them a speedy and complete recovery. Your lives have been disrupted enormously. Yet your responsibilities and expectations from you have not receded, but only increased. We at XSEED recognize that and have been at work to plan out tangible, practical and effective steps to help you and your children in this hour of need. We wanted to come to you once we were prepared.
We are taking three concrete steps:
1. Special Sessions for Owners, Principals, Teachers on Online Education
These sessions will better equip you to deal with the current situation. Our academic leaders will demonstrate on How to Teach a Great Online Class using Zoom. The session will include clips of model live classes that have been conducted with children for English, Math and Science. This session would be immensely useful for those who have attempted teaching such classes, and for the many who are yet to begin and have concerns and questions about the medium.
2. Special access to Digital Content for this exceptional period
As a gesture, XSEED is providing free digital teaching & learning content for the first two weeks of April. This will include lesson plans, worksheets, content book, practice questions, and model answer guides – to teachers. The same will be available to students & parents.
Please direct your teachers, students, and parents to go and register here: https://gesture.xseededucation.com . The registration requires a code that has been provided to the schools. This facility is available to XSEED Alumni schools as well.
3. Weekly Teacher Training & Motivation Sessions every Saturday
Beginning Saturday April 11, 2020 XSEED will run weekly online teacher training, motivation, and mentoring sessions. Academic experts at XSEED, and outside, will share their knowledge and ideas in specific areas. We hope to cover a range of topics including online education, teacher development & growth, lessons from around the world, sources & resources, subject specific matters (English, Math, Science, Social Science), Classroom Management, Differentiated Instruction, and others.
SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY DIFFICULTY IN REGISTERING FOR THE ABOVE OR NEED INFORMATION, PLEASE EMAIL CONTACT@XSEEDEDUCATION.COM OR CALL 1800 102 7200 OR WHATSAPP +91-7899507200.
