The Nagaland government has taken a decision to sort out the pandemic’s academic gap issue. By distributing, the pen drives loaded with study materials among students of classes 5 to 12. Especially, for the students who residing in rural areas where minimum network connectivity obstructs their online education, a senior official said on Monday.
Two phases of online education have been completed since the shut down of the schools because of the raising COVID-19.
The pen drives will have the syllabi covered in the online classes held since May 1, Principal Director of School Education, Shanavas C, stated.
“Students residing in urban areas like Dimapur and Kohima can access online facilities, but those living in rural areas face network issues. This is why pen drives loaded with study materials will be distributed among students of classes 5 to 12,” he said.
The department has also requested the teachers who posted in the rural areas to assist the students in online education’s problems to access it, the official said.
The third phase of the online classes will commence from August 18, he added.
Private schools can also place their orders for the pen drives via the department’s portal www.dosenl.in. They will, however, have to pay amounts ranging between Rs 350 and Rs 850 for a pen drive depending on the syllabus covered in it, the official said.
The department has insisted the teachers to regularly distribute notes and worksheets among the students. Particularly, for lower classes to ensure their flow in education, he urged.
All educational institutions in the state are shut as part of the ongoing lockdown in the state till August 31.
