Other teaching and learning activity
In collaboration with a Mumbai based NGO ‘The WorldKids Foundation’, I have been conducting interactive sessions – ‘Lessons in the Dark’ since October 2010. The Foundation is a non-profit organization involved in imparting value based quality education to the school going children of Grades KG to XII by using the medium of films as a learning tool. Its flagship program “Lessons in the Dark” is designed as an interactive film viewing and discussion module which is delivered as a classroom session to the students. And its goal is to add value to the school curriculum encompassing the continuous and comprehensive evaluation procedure. The program helps the students to acquire life skills and build their cognitive and affective abilities. At present the program is being conducted in two schools in the Delhi-NCR, The Step By Step School and Seth Anandram Jaipuria School.
