Praising teachers for devising innovative methods to teach their students during corona time, PM Narendra Modi, in his monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat on Sunday, requested them to upload the course material created by them on the Diksha Portal of the Education Ministry so as to benefit the students living in far-flung areas of the country.
He said, “All over the country during this corona time, the innovative methods that the teachers have adopted, the course material they have creatively prepared, is invaluable in this period of online studies. I request all the teachers to definitely upload these course materials on the Diksha Portal of the Education Ministry. This will help students who are staying in far-flung areas of the country, a lot.”
He also lauded Hemalata N. K., a teacher from Tamil Nadu, for her innovative way of teaching students during the pandemic when schools were shut. He said, “Hemalata N. K. teaches the oldest language of the world, Tamil at a school in Viddupuram. Even the Covid 19 pandemic could not create hurdles in her teaching work. Yes! Challenges definitely were there but she found out an innovative way. She recorded all the 53 chapters of the course, created animated videos, put them in a pen drive and distributed that amongst her students. Her students got a lot of help from this; they understood the chapters visually. Along with this, she kept interacting with her students telephonically. Thus, studies became quite interesting for the students.”
