Lockdown has changed lives of all age groups. It has revolutionized the teaching-learning process. Teachers and students have embraced this change and are making the most of these times. But, concentration on academics alone with no recreation tends to make a student dull and unsociable.
Furthermore, a relaxed mind is a rejuvenated one. It retrieves all its capacities to absorb knowledge after proper recreation. That is why schools stress extracurricular activities in routine.
The proverb “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” highlights the importance of activities of recreation, play, rest, leisure, etc. in one’s life.
Bind Unwind is one such online platform which is curated for students to have normal social interactions with their classmates. During this class, students virtually “hangout” with their class mates. They have snack breaks together, play games, have discussions and debates, etc.
Students look forward to this class as it satiates their social needs. The smiles are unparalleled when they see their friends!
Through this blog, I intend to pass a small message; it is inevitable to engage children in activities which allow them to be themselves. This will develop their social skills and they will learn to communicate using different platforms and modes of communication.
As they say, pictures speak louder than words; I would share some glimpses from these classes.
