MHRD PRAGYATA Guidelines for Digital Education
COVID-19 pandemic has led to secure disruptions in normal life, including closure of schools. It has impacted over 240 million children of the country who are enrolled in schools. Extended school closures may cause loss of learning. To mitigate the impact of the pandemic, schools will not only have to remodel and re-imagine the way teaching and learning have happened so far, but will also need to introduce a suitable method of delivering quality education through a healthy mix of schooling at home and schooling at school.
This shall be complemented by the recent launch of PM e-Vidya by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), a national campaign which will unify all efforts related to digital/online/on-air education. This includes, DIKSHA (one nation – one digital platform), TV (one class-one channel), SWAYAM (online MOOCS on various topics), IITPAL (platform for exam preparation), AIR (through community radio and CBSE Shiksha Vani podcast) and study materials for differently abled students developed by NIOS. All these areas of e-learning shall be expanded and developed further in a systematic and unified manner by the MHRD in a phased manner.
The Union government has recommended a 30-minute session, at most, for guiding parents of children in the pre-primary grade. Students in Classes 1 to 8 should attend a maximum of two sessions of 30 to 45 minutes each, and not more than four online classes, of 30 to 45 minutes each, should be held for Classes 9 to 12.
he ministry has also cautioned against overburdening teachers. “School heads should not expect teachers to be engaged in six to eight hours of online teaching in a day. Rather they may be engaged for about two to three hours of online activities per day for the classes they teach, the guidelines, titled ‘Pragyata’, states.
