As a parent, I feel the traditional method of learning is helpful in higher grades as we also have learnt it that way by mugging up the theory taught. Traditional learning is basically teacher oriented whereas active learning involves active participation of students. Our little ones should enjoy learning new -concepts, so i think the activities that are introduced by their teachers these days in schools are designed so innovatively that !earning is made easier and in a play-way method Students are given hands on learning experience and are enthusiastically participating in such activities as they find it interesting as well as challenging . I am very happy that my child is enjoying his school as | just have to monitor him while he does his home worksheets independently as their teachers make them easier by having interactive sessions in the classroom. Audio-visuals, games, puzzles, skits, quiz have helped in enhancing their vocabulary development too. | feel our kids are more blessed as they do not take any stress of studies now-a -days.

Bringing up our children | feel it was much more stress free at a particular point as there were no mobile phones and tablets. Our kids used to spend maximum time ir playing outdoor games after their study time. There was no cat rat race between the kids or the mother's. We used to teach our kids but with our grandchildren its different as they teach is many a times like how to use a mobile or any technology related thing. Today's kids don't know what are outdoor games as they are always on the mobile watching YouTube and playing games. There is so much of competition with these kids in every field like studies, sports or dance. There are few good things also because of modern education many things kids learn from the school itself as per the age or before age and we don't have to guide them. They have lot of knowledge in every field like genera! knowledge, science at a very early age which our kids did not have. So feel there are advantages as well as few disadvantages also in modern education as our kids used to not have any projects or competitions in early stds but our grandchildren from start they have competition and so many projects submission and all. feel not only kids but even their mother's go crazy behind the completions and submission. So there is definitely lot of change that has come because of this modern technology and we as grandparents from our end give them the values and culture which we feel that our grandchildren should be aware about it and which maybe the modern technology can't teach them.

Teaching has always been considered as an honorable profession. it aims at the all round development of the students. Lately the Education Department has implemented the rule of “No Corporal Punishments” in schools. | look at the implementation of this rule with a positive perspective. Instead of scolding the children to gain their attention, nowadays we look for interesting videos and PPT’s to make the lesson interesting. So I would say that this rule has helped enhance teaching methods and children are hoppy to come to school.
