Mumbai: In a new move, the education department of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has started training sessions for their teachers where they will be taught how to make their own personalised websites.  

The training will be given by the government where basics like ‘create your own website’ will be covered in the initial stages. Following this, how to upload photos, charts, and videos will be taught. Eventually, the teachers will also be given lectures on how to create their own lessons, curriculum, projects and clipart on the website in order to reach their students through the digital platform.

 

“After creating our own website, all we need to do is share the name of the website or pass on the link. The moment the student goes on the site, he will see all the things I have shared on the website,” said a teacher. She further said that the children are very excited when they are being told that extra lessons will be shared on the website.

Mahesh Palkar, education officer, BMC told The Asian Age that this move came after the government launched Maharashtra in Service Teachers Resources App (MITRA) developed as a teaching aid for the teachers.

“The teachers can either upload the resources on MITRA or use their own website. The move is expected to bring enthusiasm among the kids towards learning. These lessons will be beyond their existing curriculum,” Mr Palkar said.
