Jain Vidyaashram has conducted a workshop for teachers in Association with Val-Ed Initiatives on the topic "India 2020" at its own campus on 9th November 2019.
We had a overwhelming response. The teachers were divided into 5 groups. Each group is titled with a State's name. The teachers were instructed to construct a modern city which required balancing efforts towards developing Infrastructure, Education, Health, Culture, Politics, etc.
The game based learning activity provided the teachers deeply personalized learning and helped to collaborate and learn from others and forge stronger professional bond. Self reflection will help understand one's intellectual process, ability to work in teams, handle pressure, strategic capabilities, creativity and work ethics, in short develop 21st century character.
Values are the principles of life, which are conductive to one's physical, social and mental health. To inculcate desirable values through education is felt necessary and for this purpose JV prepares the teachers.
The workshop was conducted effectively in such a manner that the teachers did not even break the session for tea. The workshop was continued till 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon.
