29.06.2013 – PSA Workshop for Teachers

Pondering over a problem and finding the solution has been a conventional method of teaching but how much of the skills acquired by a child are applied by him in real life situation is a million dollar question. This question nevertheless became a part of the ongoing amendments in the evaluation pattern of CBSE and emerged in the form of PSA (Problem Solving Assessment). PSA has a firm motive to assess the problem solving approach and thereby buildup thinking and reasoning skills among the students. It shifts the attention of learner as well as the teacher to a new paradigm of learning wherein the application of knowledge absorbed by the student comes to fore. It also comes with an interesting series of well fabricated questions encompassing almost all major subjects and skills.

In order to acquaint the teachers with the underlying specifics of PSA, Sachdeva Group of Schools organized a workshop for its teachers at Sachdeva Global School, Dwarka on 29th June 2013 of which Queen’s Valley Teaching fraternity also became a part. Teachers from Sachdeva Public school Rohini and Pitampura also attended the workshop. The interactive session was presided over by Mr. R.P. Sharma.

The workshop began with an address by the Principal of the host school, followed by a brainstorming session by the Guest Speaker Mr. R.P. Sharma. He threw light on every miniscule detail of PSA and cleared all existing doubts regarding it. Questions like- What is PSA? ; Why PSA? ; How to prepare for PSA? -were answered to the satisfaction of the audience. All the cobwebs regarding the assessment were cleared. The factual details like weightage (marks break up), skills covered and types of questions were discussed along with examples for teachers to solve. The speaker constantly shared several learning anecdotes from his life too. The workshop emphasized on the fact that theoretical knowledge fails to flourish if it is not empowered by its practical utility and the major share of responsibility to inculcate the problem solving approach among students lies on the shoulders of the teachers. Hence the workshop endowed the same.

The teaching faculty at QVS has pulled up its sleeves to reap maximum benefits for its students in the field of problem solving.

20.06.2013 – Workshop on Innovative Teaching Techniques, Self Awareness and Newspaper Usage

“People who smile tend to teach, manage and sell better.”
-Dale Carnegie

QVS believes in equipping its teachers with all the possible tact and techniques to have an effective session with the students in a classroom along with imparting life skills. In order to take a step further, QVS organised a workshop on ‘Innovative Teaching Techniques’ hosted by Mr. Lokesh N. Darira from Promise- Personality Development for Kids. It started with a discussion on the important life skills that we expect our students to possess. From there on it went to the vital roles played by parents and teachers to inculcate these life skills amongst the students.

The emphasis was on the significance of creating a “class-culture” for an exceptional teaching-learning atmosphere. As for any child, a teacher is a role-model; therefore, personality of the teacher affects her students a lot. Thus, having an optimistic attitude was stressed upon. With the changing needs of society, an entirely different class set-up, teacher-student interaction and variations were suggested with the help of numerous activities. Techniques like “You are Incredible!” and “Cross-Teach” were particularly mentioned to build confidence amongst our queens and to help them face challenges even after school-life. The session was indeed highly enriching and interactive. Teachers could share their experiences and discuss their problems in handling a new “class-culture.”

Another workshop was conducted by NIE on ‘Self-Awareness’ on 24th June’13 which emphasised on various human emotions and different ways to deal with them.

Newspaper utilization in classroom was highly emphasised by NIE in a workshop conducted on 27th June’13. Various techniques to improve the concentration of students using newspaper were suggested.

The unprecedented innovative techniques proposed in all the workshops will be incorporated in the teaching technologies used by the teachers in the classroom for the Generation Z.
