PRESS RELEASE

EdIndia with Uttarakhand Education Department launched an online orientation session for primary teachers.

EdIndia, the strategic CSR arm of Sterlite Power, has collaborated with Uttarakhand Education Department, in order to address the teaching-learning challenges in post-COVID class rooms. EdIndia launched a state level online orientation session for over 28,000 primary teachers of the state on 3rd November 2020.

Dr. Mukul Sati, Additional Project Director Universal Education, Uttarakhand, and Ms. Seema Jaunsaari, Director- State Council of Educational Research & Training, Uttarakhand,- formally launched the post-COVID Teaching package in the session, while addressing the participants online.  The enthusiasm and active participation of the 4,000 teachers, who joined online on EdIndia’s YouTube channel, was evident from their comments in the chatbox.

When schools reopen, teaching would be a challenging task due to students’ learning loss which has happened during long academic breaks. This Post-COVID Package will help the primary teachers of the state to address the academic and emotional needs of the students, in post-COVID classrooms.

The package provides carefully designed teaching plans and resources for teachers, in context of post-COVID situations. This will help teachers to build a platform for teaching new competencies by re-strengthening the previously learned areas and connecting them with the new ones. This content will be delivered in a series of courses and activity booklets.

The efforts of EdIndia Foundation in developing this innovative and much-needed initiative around post-COVID package was widely appreciated by the state officials. With this collaboration, EdIndia is now in partnership with four state governments and has been successfully creating a niche in the EdTech sector.
