Why I love my job…

30 Oct

Each month when I plan my lessons , I search for cliparts and animations, sounds and videos to incorporate into my TAL ..i.e technology aided lessons.

On one such hunt I stumbled into      http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/

It was the search for an  animation of water cycle that brought me to this beautiful site.The kids of second standard  enjoyed the journey through water vapour to rain and back to the clouds…

I then came across animal sounds, sounds of transport and much more….

I later discovered the songs and rhymes which one can play on real one player. I could even get the words in pdf format.There are  links to so many other sites and the possibilities are immense.

Today I discovered that I could learn to type too  http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing/flash/stage1.shtml

Each time I enter such sites I learn a lot. I try to transfer what I have learnt to my teaching but I am not always successful because of  time constraints…

I am like a kid with a new toy.Thanks to my organisation for making me tech -enabled.I marvel at the variety of resources available and the miserly way in which most of us use  them.We still remain glued to our textbooks and exam-oriented  teaching.

    learning never ends hats off to you and your organisation. but many teacher are not that fortunate to get such type of support and particularly the govt schools. unforuntaely gluing to text books and exam oriented studies is inevitable as long as present education system continues.
    now even here microsoft certification exams, SAP exams etc., are on line and results are out then and there so there atleast there is a change in system.
    thanks for sharing it here

    @naren: The job is highly paid–if you see the long term benefits….
    The huge friendship network with ex-students and parents, the ‘fan’ following of current students, the love and guaranteed affection one receives over the years…
