Teaching is considered to be one of the most difficult tasks in the modern world mainly due to the heterogeneity of the class room community. There are brilliant, above average, average and poor performers in a class. It is naturally easier to teach the brilliant students, but they generally form less than 10% of the total number.
The main problem thus, lingers on how to deal with the rest of the class that forms the majority? It is disheartening that, in spite of all these technological revolutions, Indian classrooms still practice traditional or orthodox methods of teaching, especially at the school level. It is therefore high time to change the system and to develop an alternative method to teach this majority according to the advancements in modern technology.
We are all aware that the human mind can concentrate upon a session or a class up to 15 to 20 minutes only. Therefore the question arises on how to teach our students for longer durations? How do we make the learning process interesting?
By weighing the pros and cons of the likes and dislikes of the younger generation, Daskalos Virtual Academy Private Ltd has come up with a solution through virtual classes. The term virtual classes means, to teach the students by using visual models. Visual learning makes complete sense only when someone considers our brain mainly as an image processor, and not a word processor. In fact, the part of the brain used to process words is quite small in comparison to the part that processes visual images.
By keeping this point in mind, the company has developed a series of virtual classes in the form of My Tuition App, to address the present issues pertaining to the student community of our country.
I believe this is a right step, at the right time, in the right direction. I am also extremely happy and privileged to say that my former students have come up with this great idea while having a strong social commitment in mind. I appreciate the entire team’s efforts and wish them the very best.
