“EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER” as the famous quote says sharing knowledge to others
by Teaching is itself a wonderful experience and doing the same by virtual teaching is really
an amazing experience ever had.
Learning is a never-ending process whether the circumstances support or not and also there
should be nothing hindering the process of learning by a student which perfectly fits into the
present scenario. It’s the time of our Second Mother Nature who is showing her anger as
silence – we her children cannot sit aimless but should strive to optimize the utility of the
resources available, nothing but the adaptive learning done by virtual teaching and learning.
Virtual Teaching and providing virtual learning resources to students helped me to connect
my students during this crisis. I have been always enthusiastically googling many websites and
referring to various books to provide as much information as I can provide my students which
to some extent may fulfil the dearth of my absence. Every time I draft my notes I would pause
and think of my student “what if this sentence may create a doubt? “, thereby as doubt of
benefit I would go with another supporting informative sentence or an equation. It would be
an imaginary class of my students and me, with full of discussions, queries and clarifications
which ultimately reflected as the summary of notes being drafted continuously in the realistic
word document. Virtual learning resources are always flexible. I could cover as many
illustrations as i can in my notes and also more questions in my worksheet. Every time I find
their solved soft copy of worksheet in my inbox, i would curiously check to see the extent of
understanding been developed towards the concept. I started exploring many technical
aspects which can make my content more and more beneficial, easily accessible and
approachable. It gave me immense pleasure and happiness when I could correct the
answered worksheets using different tools of software and share my feedback with them.
Therefore, it has been a wonderful self-learning process by me too.
Finally as a teacher, I have been interacting with my students on a regular basis as how it
happens during our regular working days of school in the form of notes, worksheets, handouts
etc.,and thus tremendous teaching- learning going on effectively. It has been always a great
bonding with my students, ever ready to support them and enrich them with bountiful of
knowledge for their SUCCESS.
