Online education must reduce the learning gap: Delhi MP CM Manish Sisodia | Delhi News


NEW DELHI: While 98% of students in classes XI and XII in Delhi’s public schools are taking lessons online, 97% of other classes are receiving worksheets, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Thursday. He was reviewing the online teaching-learning process in schools with the principal, the Directorate of Education (DoE) and other officials.
He told officials to ensure that alongside educating children through online lessons and worksheets, their emotional and mental wellbeing is also taken care of.
“As long as schools remain closed, online education must continue systematically to reduce the learning gap. Due to repeated school closures during the Covid pandemic, there has been a loss of education for students. The health of students is very important to us, but it is also important that the education of children does not stop. The pandemic has brought new challenges, but the education team is working diligently to ensure that each child has access to education,” said Sisodia.
DoE Director Himanshu Gupta said it emphasizes assessing children’s learning levels through innovative means. “The DoE regularly sends worksheets to students. Online courses are also offered to students in grades 9 to 12. Children who do not have digital devices to take online lessons receive printed copies of school worksheets each week. The DoE sends worksheets to students in K-X classes every week via WhatsApp, as well as projects, assignments and activity sheets to secondary classes during the winter break,” Gupta said.
DoE worksheets reach 99.2% of students from KG to Class II, 99.1% from Class III to V, 94.21% from Class VI, 97.2% from Class VII, 98% Class VIII, 98.7% Class IX and 98.4% Class X.
