When Teachers Are Students: 125 From Govt Schools Get Training In New Age Learning | Gurgaon News

Gurgaon: Among the By Haryana program, the education department completed the training of three groups of teachers on Saturday. About 125 teachers from the government’s primary schools of Farrukhnagar, Sohna and Pataudi were trained for five days. With this, a total of seven groups of teachers were trained in interactive and new-era pedagogy to help achieve students’ basic skills in language and numeracy.
“The Center and the state government undertake the Foundation Literacy and Numeracy Program. In Haryana, the target has been set for 2025 and by that time we want to ensure that every child has achieved a standard proficiency in basic reading, writing and comprehension of language and numeracy. But before we focus on students, it is important to train teachers in the dedicated curriculum and pedagogy needed to FLN targets, ”said Sashi Bala Ahlawatan official of the elementary education department.
Part of the nationwide campaign — Nipun Bharat — to improve the country’s elementary education status, Nipun Haryana mission will be rolled out at block level from this month. Under this mission, teachers will move away from excessive learning to overcome the learning crisis and build fundamental literacy and numeracy skills. While the scheme was initially for students from grades 1 to 3, the state government extended the program to the students from grades 4 and 5, as well as the learning among the students was compromised during the two years of patching coverage of online education.
“Up to class 3, every child had to have achieved standard skills in language and numeracy. Through the FLN campaign along with the 12-week school integration program called Vidya Pravesh, we try to make elementary education more effective. We also included classes 4 and 5 in this mission because education has been disrupted for the past two years, ”Anshaj Singh, the director of the elementary education department, told TOI last month.
Nipun Bharat is a central scheme under the auspices of the Samagra Siksha project. It aims to develop basic learning skills in two subjects — Hindi and Mathematics — by 2026-2027. Haryana has taken this project one step further by adding another subject — English — and committing itself to achieving FLN skills by 2025.
In addition to improving the learning standards in elementary education, the program, departmental competitions, will serve an additional purpose of bridging the learning gaps that occurred during the pandemic.
“Through the use of audiovisual methods, digital smart boards and revised teaching and assessment curriculum, teachers will strive to bridge learning gaps and ensure the basic standard of FLN skills in all students in the elementary classes. This training helps teachers to break away from the teaching style that is considered ineffective and to use innovative techniques to not only gain students’ attention, but also to retain and shape it, ”said the district coordinator for the FLN program. Manoj Lakhra said.
