Parents are flooding schools with letters that kids are missing out on their routine lessons, two days after the online classes were banned.
Geeta Gadiya, a resident of Bengaluru says her two sons are disheartened with the ban. They looked forward to online classes during this lockdown period and felt happy to connect with teachers and friends when they couldn’t even step out of their flat.
It is necessary to conduct online classe for children and keep them engaged in productive activities. Schools can continue teaching online, with approval of parents to make kids feel mentally well. The same kids are going to use the PC/smartphone to play games if online learning is stops, don’t you think so? Says JA Vani Verma, Principal, Tapovan School.
Parthasarathi Krishna Iyer, principal-director of Ganga Institution said they were conscious of the screen time during online classes. "Any class for more than two or two and a half hour would not be advisable, and we have always been careful about that," said Iyer.
