Mumbai has emerged as the hotspot for the spread of the coronavirus. Hospitals are over-crowded and government schools have been turned into quarantine centres. Our schools too have been converted to quarantine facilities. This means our children will not be able to return to school for the next few months. But education cannot stop.
In light of the current situation, our teachers started conducting online classes for students of Standard IX since April 2020. However, with the start of the new academic year in June, we wish to extend online lessons to all children across our schools.
The teachers are working on creating lessons online and sharing it with the students through mediums such as Whatsapp and Google Classroom. However the biggest concern is that our families and teachers both have limited or no access to computers or laptops and smartphones would be the only possible device available to them.
