“Today’s session is one of the needed issues that teachers need to know. Due to covid-19 and lockdown, many students are forced to stay at home and continue their studies online and get struggle to concentrate on their learning. Still, we saw such problems in school. So from today’s session, I came to know how we can make our teaching more interesting so that we can attract the students and increased their attention to studies. So I will practice this learning in my class and will also share it with my colleagues. So thank Loo Niva for conducting such a needed program.”
