“INNOVATION IS PIERCING THE MUNDANE TO FIND THE MARVELOUS”
What is Innovation?
The Oxford Dictionary defines innovation as the introduction of new things, ideas or ways of doing something. But Is that all what innovation entails? It is such a broad term which makes it hard to define it in a single sentence. Even innovators throughout history have not always known or perceived where their ideas came from and so it is challenging to define what it is that lets them execute their ideas.
Innovation in Education
Innovation in education for CBSE School in Kota transcends technical expertise. Both ‘Innovation’ and ‘Learning’ go hand in hand and are interdependent on each other. It is a well-established fact that innovation is driven by learning.
Albert Einstein aptly said, “the true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.”
We may recall numerous movies based on educators using innovative teaching methods that have affected the lives of many. Our Indian cinema doesn’t lag behind in featuring such innovative methods in education for CBSE School. Movies like Taare Zameen Par, Super 30 and Hitchki to name a few have always been blockbusters which clearly means that they were liked by the general public.
Experimenting and applying different techniques and approaches by educators can undoubtedly be beneficial in teaching.
Every educator has a different approach to teaching. While some teachers still have faith in the traditional learning methods, some choose to take the modern route. The need of the hour is for every teacher to be adapted with an innovative approach to teaching to keep their students engaged. Thus, a teacher needs to be able to strike a balance between both traditional as well as modern methods of teaching for CBSE School.
EMS Teachers Adopting Online Platforms
During the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers had to automatically make a shift towards the world of digital learning. In order to not let the learning suffer, teachers had to adopt online platforms for the smooth conduct of their classes along with meetings and webinars with the help of video conferencing platforms like Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, etc.
Teachers of Emmanuel make sure that students stay motivated while learning online because of Digital Infrastructure in our CBSE School. They creatively apply certain techniques that help in keeping the students engaged and holding their much needed interest during long lectures, failing which leave them overwhelmed and less inclined to learn.
Innovative Teaching Methods
Teaching is considered to be the most noble profession in the world as it plays an enormous role in the life of each individual. To maintain the nobility of our profession, we at Emmanuel focus on remodeling traditional methods of teaching to make learning easier for our students so that our School is Best resultant CBSE School.
Innovative teaching methods are quite helpful in making that possible. For example, in the case of dealing with tiny tots, our teachers nowadays are using flash cards and other modes of visualization. At the same time, when dealing with high schoolers, they prefer to use smart boards to make the world of learning vivid for them.
William Butler Yeats once said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” So, It is imperative for us educators to hop on this wagon of innovative teaching to ensure that the education we impart does more than “fill the pail.”
