HYDERABAD: Students take recourse to large number of e-learning apps which is not something that makes teachers at the primary school level happy. Ms Vandana Roy, teacher with a city school, said, “These apps are created with optimal visualisation. Anything in excess is harmful. Parents often force children to take up e-learning tests besides regular and tuition classes.” Most applications are free. The companies gauge a student's performance through online tests and offer a tailor-made package on the basis of his weakness.

With help of agents based in cities, parents and students get a personalised analysis. Ms Nalini Reddy said, “My child who is in Class 7 is using an e-learning application for two months. Videos make the studies interesting for the child. We purchased the package for Rs 10,000, for the full year. It also has specialised tests and question papers.”

 

Ms Sruthi Mani, a primary school teacher, noted, “Students at a young age have to work with their hands and should engage in activities in the class. Students need to interact which is why we have rhymes and other chart papers in the classrooms. There should be a healthy learning environment for students when they are young.”
