NCERT Class 11th Alternative Academic Calendar 2020 Details:
Meanwhile CIET- NCERT also tweeted about the academic calendar, “Come online, teach your children at home and be safe with Alternative Academic Calendar.” In this period of Covid-19, which is declared as a global pandemic, our teachers, parents and students have to remain at homes to prevent its spread in the community. In this situation, it is our responsibility to provide them with multiple alternative ways of learning at home through interesting activities. It is necessary because in the present environment of stress, we not only have to keep our children busy but also maintain continuity of their learning in their new classes. In this context, NCERT has developed an Alternative Academic Calendar for all the stages of school education. Initially, this calendar is prepared for four weeks, which may be extended further. In this calendar the themes/topics have been selected from syllabus and are linked with the learning outcomes.
Guidelines have been developed for conducting interesting activities based on these learning outcomes. But it is a matter of fact that many teachers and parents only have simple mobile phones as a tool available at their homes and all the teachers and students do not have virtual classroom facility. In view of this the activities are designed and presented in such a way that many activities can be conducted by the parents and students on their own after talking to the teachers over phone. The teachers can contact parents and students using a range of tools starting from simple mobile phones to internet based diverse technological tools for giving them the appropriate guidelines for conducting these activities given in the calendar.
This calendar includes not only generic guidelines and subject specific activities, but also detailed material on the use of different technological and social media tools as well as strategies for reducing stress and anxiety in the present time. This guideline also contains activities related to art education and health and physical education.
It also includes reference of many learning resources along with textbooks.
This calendar is flexible and suggestive. The teachers can implement this taking into consideration the contexts and needs of the State/UT.
This calendar has been developed by the faculty members of all the constituent units of the NCERT including NIE, CIET, PSSCIVE and all the five RIEs using on–line platforms such as WhatsApp, Google Hang-out, Zoom, etc., for discussion and feedback.
Their hard work is commendable. For implementing this calendar, SCERT and the Directorate of Education may form teams including faculty members from DIETs and School Principals, who can continuously follow-up and provide support to teachers using mobile phones and other accessible technological tools and social media.
We hope, this calendar will be useful for teachers and parents in creating a very conducive learning environment at home for the students so that they can learn in a very meaningful and joyful way. Suggestions of the concerned stakeholders are welcomed for further improving this calendar.
