About The Event
What is the most important thing for teachers as children return to the regular school routine?
All of us agree that students' socio-emotional health has suffered a lot during the shutdown of schools induced by the Covid-19 pandemic. Principals and teachers are noticing that students' social behavior has completely changed, as they return to school. Their confidence levels have dropped and the quality of interactions with peers has declined.
Before we begin finding ways to help them overcome the learning gaps caused by the shutdowns, it is important for us to help them regain their social skills and rediscover emotional strengths.
Playing with children (of all ages) is much more important today than teaching them. But, how do we do it? Will this not create a lot of disturbance in the classrooms? How will we address the learning gaps and syllabi requirements?
During the 78th episode of Friday@5, we plan to find answers to some of these questions.
