Tips to take successful online classes

How can teachers make sure that learners are engaged in a digital classroom?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent social distancing norms, teachers around the world are blending offline teaching practices with technology tools to create the best online learning experience for learners. Many components of online teaching will continue to stay even when teachers and students go back to regular classrooms. So, it is practical to hone teachers' online teaching skills. While most teachers have learnt how to use video conferencing-based classroom technology, many still find it difficult to manage the online experience for the learners. Here's a sneak peek into how teachers can take online teaching experience to the next level:

Start with the objective: Just like offline classes, one must first define learning objectives and structure them according to easily achievable and difficult to achieve, using the tools available. The objectives can further be divided into the must do-s, the should do-s and the could do-s along with the technology tools needed to execute them.

Define learner experience: Right from the explanation to asking learners to watch an online video to conducting a quiz or even dividing them into discussion groups, every experience should be pre-imagined and pre-defined. Visualise how you want it to go and then decide what resources would you need for it.

Set classroom rules: Learners must be told and trained on how to participate and let others participate. Rules should be communicated in different ways and be regularly reinforced.

Plan for learner safety: Online learning has made learners more vulnerable to direct and indirect hack attacks, which might lead to physical, mental or emotional distress and impact learners' ability to learn and participate. Imagine the helplessness of a learner being bullied or emotionally blackmailed by someone they don't know, or someone familiar but hidden. Share online safety tips with students and parents regularly, and check if they have received and understood them.

Plan assessments: There are a variety of free online tools available to plan pre-class, in-class and post-class assessments. These must be used carefully as every assessment creates an impact on learners' self-image and inclination to learn. If an assessment is too easy, it might send the wrong message about their learning ability and cause over-confidence, and if an assessment is too difficult, it might cause disinterest towards learning and online classes.

Provide feedback: Giving regular feedback to learners is much more important in online learning. A physical classroom creates multiple opportunities for one-to-one interaction and feedback, which is missed in online classrooms. One must give both direct and recorded (written or video-based) feedback to every learner and, if possible, also to parents. The feedback brings continuity to the learning experience and keeps learners engaged.

English is indeed a funny language

Always follow a 'q' with a 'u' and remember 'I before E, except after C'. Simple? Well, actually no.

English is indeed a funny language. Most often, the spelling of a word does not match its pronunciation. One reason for this is that there are only 26 letters in the English alphabet. In order to be able to read English, a wide variety of sounds have to be produced with the help of these limited number of letters.

However, there are some rules that may help us with our spelling. One such rule is that 'q' is always followed by 'u'.

Words like Quality, Quantity, Quake, Quark, Question, Quarter, Quote, Equal, Equator and so on. So when you start a word with a 'q' you can be sure that the second letter is a 'u'. This rule applies even if the 'q' is inside the word, as in Equator. If you follow this rule, and if your teacher is one of those angelic ones, she might credit you for getting part of the word right, even if the rest of the word is not!

Here's another tip. There's a rule in English that goes, "I before E, except after C." That means we always write 'i' first, and then 'e'. Words like piece, chief and brief follow the first part of the rule.

Words like deceive, receive and conceit follow the second part of the rule; that is, whenever there is a 'c', it is followed by 'ei'.

Unfortunately there are many exceptions to this rule. Here are some words where ie follows 'c': efficient, ancient and society. Here are some words where 'ei' is used even though there's no 'c':vein, weight and height. So if you have studied this rule, it is best to forget it as soon as possible, or you have to keep in mind all the exceptions too, which are quite a few.

How to eat right ?

A video on nutrition expert Rujuta Diwekar's preferred meal plan to lose those inches and increase your metabolism
In 2020, take back control of what you eat. Here is nutrition expert Rujuta Diwekar's cheat sheet to help you reset yourself in 10 days for better sleep, less bloating, more energy.
Eat a banana or any other fresh fruit first thing in the morning. You can also eat soaked almonds or soaked raisins. But don't start your day with tea/coffee.
You can have a traditional home-cooked breakfast like idli, dosa or poha about 45 minutes to an hour after the pre-breakfast snack.
        Mid-morning snack
You can have a fresh fruit or a home-made laddoo or barfi. Or a seasonal/home-made drink, such as coconut water, buttermilk, nannari or nimbu sherbet. The Ayurvedic wisdom behind including these drinks during the day is to stoke the appetite, ease digestion and boost the immune system.
Add ghee, the ultimate Indian superfood, to every meal. It is a fat that breaks down other fats, reduces sweet cravings and is excellent for digestion, keeps joints healthy and skin glowing.
        4-6 pm meal
The key to losing weight lies in what you eat between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.. It is a time when most of us are the most hungry and also the most careless in our eating. You could eat a chapati with ghee and jaggery or choose between poha upma, dosa, egg-toast, murukku or home-made coconut, gram or gond laddoo. If you have early dinners, then just have some groundnuts with jaggery.
For dinner, eat rice with sambar, rasam or dal and any vegetable. Pick hand-pounded or single-polished rice, instead of brown rice for your everyday use. This easy to digest and complete meal also improves sleep quality. It is suitable for people of all kinds of constitutions according to Ayurveda.
