Online, offline, the two keys to school education: Wangchuk | Calcutta News
“While online mode should be for concept creation and conferences, offline mode can now be used for experiments and applications. Think of schools as laboratories where students will use offline classrooms for hands-on experiences and learning through it, ”he said at“ Innovation Amid Adversity, ”an event hosted by Science City and Birla Industrial and Technological Museum.
Speaking of the challenges during a pandemic, Wanghcuk said online learning offers more opportunities. “Many teachers who weren’t focusing on education through online courses are familiar now,” he said.
Citing the example of his own non-traditional school in Ladakh, Wangchuk said that simply studying its structure would provide students with the concepts of physics.
Basing his hopes on the new education policy, he said: “The new education policy looks good to me. We have yet to see how far this reaches the last mile student. ”
Wangchuk now plans to establish a university, the Himalayan Institute of Alternatives, on more than 200 acres in the Phyang Valley.
