Teaching has undergone a massive transformation in the last decade or so with the incoming of many educational regulations and technology updates. The advancement in technology has alone transformed the major part of teaching since the 90s, especially with the availability of computers, and the internet in the new century. Despite technology advancements, there is a significant gap between quality expected and delivered by teachers across the country, including in metro cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, and Chandigarh.
Here are top challenges identified in the teaching community and how teacher training in Chennai is prepared to take on future trends.
Rural Education Matching with Urban Standards
The rural education is a fast-growing avenue for teaching community that has taken upon themselves to uplift and empower the students belonging to the presumed ‘backward’ sections of the society. This renders a massive opportunity for teachers training in Chennai to explore rural teaching hubs and improve the conditions there.
Also, teaching in rural communities can significantly improve patience and communication skills.
Dealing with Deficiencies with an Undiluted Positive Outlook
In the current teaching market, training is focused extensively on closing the gap in skills but not much is done to identify the deficiencies in the teaching sector. For example, there is a visible deficiency in the infrastructure provided by the school administrations across Chennai. There is no uniformity as yet. Teachers who switch from one school to another face some challenges in adjusting to new infrastructure. Teacher training in Chennai help deals with such controlling deficiencies with a positive outlook.
Integrated coaching with senior professionals and social analysts also help deal with the migration from a rural setting to urban ones, and vice versa.
E-Books and Audio Books
Teachers are taking e-books way to attract the attention of primary and secondary students. E-books also save a lot of time and space for schools. They can be downloaded and taught anywhere, anytime. This allows teachers to explore out of classroom settings to teach students.
For example, traffic rules e-books can be taught by teachers using real traffic conditions. Interesting examples crop up when creative teachers take the help of human traffic policemen to practically examine how traffic rule work, how traffic lights switch off and on at crossroads, the concept of zebra crossing and much more.
Another interesting example of using e-books is that of Natural Science. Going on an excursion to beaches, hills, gardens, etc, are all excellent ideas to nurture children and develop intellect with creativity.
E-book training can get teachers to deal with future trends better.
Balancing between Attention, Privacy and Sex Education
Classroom teaching continues, supported amicably by computer-based teaching and another tech-focused tutoring, including guided excursions.
In India, an average classroom has 40+ students, and in some cases may be even more. In such cases, teachers have to pay extra attention to all students. Imparting sex education and privacy ethics remain the biggest challenge that Chennai teaching courses are working extensively with administrations.
