Andhra government plans to start Whatsapp classes to Tenth-grade students amid Coronavirus lockdown
It seems that time has come for the Tenth-grade students to turn up to smartphones as the Andhra Pradesh government is planning to send the syllabus and other information to the students through WhatsApp and other social media platforms, thanks to coronavirus outbreak.
It seems that time has come for the Tenth-grade students to turn up to smartphones as the Andhra Pradesh government is planning to send the syllabus and other information to the students through WhatsApp and other social media platforms, thanks to coronavirus outbreak. In this backdrop, every school is entitled to create a WhatsApp group consisting of students and teachers from the concerned school. The teachers would teach important practice questions on TV or radio, and the data is to be sent to the WhatsApp group for students.
After the lessons are taught, the questions are passed to the students in the WhatsApp group where they have to write an answer and send it to the WhatsApp group while teachers evaluate the answers and give feedback in the group. This is how students use the WhatsApp group to study the Tenth Class.
It is learnt that as the lockdown due to end on May 17, the AP government would launch classes for students online after May 17. A total of 24 thousand students, 933 teachers expected to join these online classes. Lecturers record their classes on video and upload it on YouTube, and later youtube URL links are sent to the students in the WhatsApp group or e-mail.
On the other hand, students can also go to the Abhyasa portal developed by the government and watch the videos and download objective Type Question Papers. The government will launch a similar policy in June and July for junior classes as well. There were 5979 classes completed for college students, and teachers are trying to complete the pending syllabus soon.
