Teach Class XI, XII Students Through WhatsApp, Odisha DHSE To Principals
Bhubaneswar: The Directorate of Higher Secondary Education (DHSE), Odisha has directed principals of all Higher Secondary Schools in the State to provide online teaching to Class XI and XII students as per the syllabus prescribed by it.
“The studies of the students of Class-XI and XII may hamper as regular schooling process is disrupted due to COVID-19 pandemic. We have to explore alternate methods of learning, instead of chalk & talk method without breaking the rules and advisories suggested for the situation,” DHSE director Brundaban Behera wrote in a letter to the principals.
School heads have been directed to identify such types of alternate methods for learning of the students during this crisis.
“Instruct your subject faculties to make WhatsApp groups of their students and deliver their lessons through the app, followed by doubt clearing once in a fortnight,” the DHSE letter said.
The principals have also been asked to instruct their faculties to search different links and provide them to the students to get relevant topics in YouTube and smart online lectures of Byju’s Class, Khan Academy etc., so that the students can focus on self-study during this situation.
The directorate has directed the principals to instruct the faculties to keep records of their works for verification whenever necessary. The principals will have to verify the records and submit monthly report of the online classes to the directorate.
