Teachers given training in developing e-content

Teachers from government high schools in Trichy were imparted training to develop e-content for subjects using information and communication technology (ICT) tools. The idea is to make learning more interesting and keep the students engaged while equipping teachers to effectively convey the subject though audio visual mode.
Close of 500 teachers are part of the 10-day-long workshop that is being held in all the four educational districts in Trichy.

"In the era of smart phones, it has become necessary to churn out innovative ideas to keep students engaged in class," said R Hari Prasad, a Tamil teacher at a government school in Trichy and a resource person at the workshop held at Kongunadu Engineering college near Thottiyam. "This tool would also enable teachers to make use of the available IT infrastructure which is perhaps not very high in government schools," he added.
"We were taught to use image and audio editing software and how to develop audio visual content out of it," said G Menaka, a teacher from Lalgudi, adding that the tool would help in teaching Tamil poems which otherwise may not interest students if narrated in the classrooms. It would also help students to improve pronunciation, she said.
"The method would help shun the conventional teaching methodology adding more visual element into it," said S Manivel from the RMSA. The workshop was organised by the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) in Trichy.
While e-content development was the core area of training, orientation sessions were also organized on handling differently-abled students apart from gender sensitisation.
