Tamil teacher commended by PM Modi for innovation in teaching – education



Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded a teacher from Tamil Nadu for her innovative way of teaching students amid COVID-19 pandemic when schools were shut.

“I read approximately a teacher from Tamil Nadu. Her name is Hemalata N K, and she teaches the oldest language of the world Tamil at a school in Viddupuram. Even the Covid-19 pandemic could not create hurdles in her teaching. Challenges definitely were there but she found out an innovative way,” the Prime Minister said while addressing the nation through 72nd edition of his monthly radio programme and the final ‘Mann Ki Baat’ of the year 2020 on Sunday.

“She recorded all of the 53 chapters of the class lesson, created lively videos, put them in a pen drive and distributed that amongst her students. Her students got numerous help from this; they understood the chapters visually. In conjunction with this, she kept interacting with her students telephonically. Thus, the study became rather interesting for the students,” he said.

PM Modi requested teachers to upload class lesson fabric on the Diksha Portal of the Education Ministry to help students who are staying in far-flung areas of the country.

“Everywhere the country all over this corona time, the innovative methods that the teachers have adopted, the class lesson fabric they’ve creatively prepared, those are invaluable in this period of online studies. I request all of the teachers to definitely upload these class lesson materials on the Diksha Portal of the Education Ministry. This will help students who are staying in far-flung areas of the country, a lot,” he said.
