The State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) will begin yet another training course for school teachers on capacity building in online teaching and mental health awareness. The training will begin from Monday, where teachers will be trained in making videos as a teaching aid, besides the use of the ChalkLit app.
Since the lockdown, around 11,000 teachers have already been trained by SCERT in online teaching methods.
“Teachers’ progress in the training will be monitored through the in-built system of the ChalkLit app,” the SCERT said. “Teachers require to complete 100% progress of the training before the end date to be eligible for the certificate. The certificate will be available online through the ChalkLit app. Teachers can use this certificate for their professional development while writing their resumes for the confidential report.”
After the lockdown, the directorate of education had engaged Adhyayan Foundation, Tata Trusts and Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) to train teachers in online teaching. In the first phase, 5,000 teachers were trained in 168 groups. In the next phase, the remaining 5,500 teachers from the primary to higher secondary school level were trained.
