These tools will cater to the concept of audio-visual and kinesthetic learning.
Commenting on this initiative Dr. Kavita Nagpal, Principal Orchids The International School, Masjid Bunder, said, “We are trying to break the monotony of classroom learning through these initiatives. During the lockdown, students have been confined to four walls and gadget screens were their only window through which they saw the drastic change in their world as they knew it. This has undoubtedly affected their tender psyche and going back to the pre-covid normalcy is not easier for them. Hence, this is our small effort to encourage them to open up and push them to learn by doing”
