DSSU teachers trg concludes
Dimapur, April 3
The three days teachers training cum students’ workshop on theme “learning science without memorizing,” organized by the Dimapur Sumi Students’ Union (DSSU) in collaboration with the Indigenous Cultural Society (ICS) and Jan Jati Vikas Samiti (JJVS) successfully concluded today at Holy Cross Higher Secondary School (HCHSS), Dimapur.
The training cum workshop, an initiative of the DSSU to upgrade the teaching and learning concept of science subject with the wrong traditional belief of considering science as a ‘memorizing subject,’ turned out to be a fruitful venture under the guidance of eminent social workers in the field of education namely Sharad Godse, Achyut Sapre and Vinayak Dixit who had traveled from Maharashtra with a hope of eradicating the wrong notion of science learning in Nagaland. Sharad Godse, who was impressed by the ‘will to learn’ among the teachers and students, stated that his aim of coming to Nagaland and sharing his knowledge has been completely fulfilled and satisfied with the responses and attention he received from all the trainees. He also encouraged the students to plan everything before beginning the actual work to become a successful person.
Sharad Godse, who wishes to visit Nagaland again, stated that he will be ever willing to help and that he can always be relied upon for any kind of educational support or queries.
One of the teachers, who undertook the three days training on behalf of all the teachers, testified that the training has been a great learning platform especially for the teachers and exuded confidence that it would benefited them in the days to come. He also stated that students cannot be blamed for ‘restlessness’ during class hours but it is the failure of the teachers who fail to draw the attention of the students from the way lessons were taught.
He also stated that the classroom atmosphere would not be how it was before in which the teachers deliver lecture from the books and only 10% students paying attention to the eaching. He believed that through the training, students would score good marks in exams and also develop zeal to learn science without memorizing.
One of the members of the ICS, who was also present during the valedictory session, congratulated DSSU for identifying the educational need and for initiating such kind of unique workshop which is much required for students and teachers.
Participation certificates were also awarded to all the science teachers present during the training.
Hundreds of students from 9 schools and 33 science teachers from various schools of Dimapur district took part in the training.
