Socio-emotional learning is vital for children because it teaches them crucial life skills, including the ability to understand themselves, develop a positive self-image, being responsible for their actions and make a strong and healthy relationship with the people around them, especially with their peers.

SEL is the process of developing self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills which are important for school, work and life success. People with socio-emotional skills are better at coping with everyday challenges and benefit them academically, professionally and socially.

CBSE Workshop On Portfolio and Subject Enrichment Activities

Date: 15/07/22

Participants: Shailja Singh, Neha Shah, Jayshree Gohil, Payal Dave, Bhavika Bhavsar, Sindhu Sunil, Zalak Bhatt

An enriching session on ‘Decoding Portfolio and Subject Enrichment Assessment’ was conducted by the COE Gauhati on July 15, 2022, Saturday. The Resource Person Mr. Partha Sarathi Sarkar through presentation, discourses and the discussions provided substantial food for thought. The striking fact which emerged was that the process of building the portfolio ushers a series of skills that develops into the ability to comprehend individual strengths and challenges over a period of time, thereby promoting the art of reflection.

The teachers have often observed during their conversations with students that though the students can accurately tell what they were doing in a particular subject, they struggle to articulate what they might be learning. Constructing a personal portfolio to trace the learning curve encourages the students to take a few minutes to capture not only what they have learned, but also to analyse the ‘how’ and ‘why’, which will ultimately allow them to delve deeper into the content.

The session also evidently outlined that the 'assessment as learning’ is directly proportional to the student portfolio, which eventually leads to the development of metacognitive skills. The said skills in turn are scientifically proven to open the gates to taking learning beyond the classroom paraphernalia, a much sought-after ideal of the entire teaching-learning process.

Thus, it can be clearly visualized that for portfolios to be truly valuable to both students and teachers, they need to provide an insight into not only what students created as a representation of their learning, but also how and why they created it. If the ultimate goal is to develop students as life-long learners, they need an opportunity to make connections to the content as well as the overarching learning objectives.

Thus, to draw a conclusion, the session intended that the student portfolio is a living, breathing dossier of the learner’s achievements; thus, curating, reflecting and sharing should be at the helm of affairs. It lives on to tell the tale long after the academic year has ended. So, perception unified with a vivid imagination at its pivot, portfolios become summative in nature and can be viewed as a supplement to the end of a unit, project, or activity.

The content of the Workshop was highly appreciated by the participants. The purpose, results and outcomes were regarded as relevant and meaningful. Furthermore, “the lessons on the case studies of what had worked and what not were very insightful”.

Other positive notes were that more insight was acquired on the Hindi language and that the Webinar theme enabled the sharing of ideas and knowledge across sectors. However, the participants suggested to discuss about the philosophy, since this would enable a more focused and in depth discussion of each issue.

Furthermore, it was recommended to put more focus on Hindi as a language not just as a subject, for example, encouraging participants to study it and provide feedback.

There should be space for ‘second order’ sessions; sessions that actually explore the history of Hindi as a language and its origin. Sharing these kind of lessons can improve a person’s knowledge about its mother tongue (Hindi) and also will spread awareness that how important this language is.

शिक्षकों में हिंदी भाषा में लेखन तथा साहित्य सृजन की क्षमता को विकसित करने हेतु 23 फरवरी, 2022 को शाम 4:00 बजे से लेकर 5:00 बजे तक एक ऑनलाइन कार्यशाला का आयोजन किया गया था जिसमें श्रीमती मीता गुप्ता जी ने विषय विशेषज्ञ के तौर पर कार्यशाला में जुड़े हुए शिक्षक व शिक्षिकाओं को एक अविस्मरणीय अनुभव प्रदान किया जिसमें उन्होंने शिक्षकों को साहित्य सृजन की ओर अग्रसर करते हुए कई सारे मुद्दों पर प्रकाश डाला। श्रीमती नीता जी ने कार्यशाला की शुरुआत प्रार्थना से की साथ ही में उन्होंने एक प्रश्न पूछ कर कार्यशाला को विषय की ओर अग्रसर किया । उनका प्रश्न था श्रेष्ठ साहित्य क्या है? प्रश्न का उत्तर देते हुए उन्होंने कहा साहित्य सृजन अनुभव शीलता का प्रवाह है उन्होंने आदि कवि वाल्मीकि जी के रामायण नामक ग्रंथ को रचने के पीछे जो छोटा सा किस्सा था वह बताते हुए समझाया की उन्होंने किस तरह से एक क्रौंच पक्षी और क्रोंची के विरह की व्यथा को रामायण जैसे अभूतपूर्व ग्रंथ में परिवर्तित कर दिया उन्होंने कई ऐसे बिंदु प्रस्तुत किए जो अध्यापक अध्यापिका ओं को साहित्य सर्जन कार बनने की ओर प्रेरित करें।

उन्होंने साहित्य की महानता बताते हुए कहा साहित्य तो अपने आप में श्रेष्ठ और असीम है साहित्य को चुनौती देना असंभव है क्योंकि हम किसी भी व्यक्ति विशेष की सोच को सीमा में नही बांध सकते या चुनौती नहीं दे सकते साथ ही उन्होंने एक आधुनिक कवित्री श्रीमती मधु गोविंद मोहिनी जी का उदाहरण भी दिया और उनकी नई रचना सुनाते हुए कहा की किस तरह से उन्होंने अपने दैनिक जीवन की मुसीबतों को या अनुभवों को कविता का स्वरूप दे दिया। श्रीमती मीता ने कवि वाल्मीकि, तुलसीदास ,भारतेंदु हरिश्चंद्र, निराला जी, प्रेमचंद जी, अज्ञेय जी, हरिवंश राय बच्चन, माखनलाल चतुर्वेदी जैसे साहित्यकारों के उदाहरण और उनकी रचनाओं की प्रासंगिकता को समझाया और कहा की साहित्य तो मंजू मंदाकिनी है। उन्होंने अशोक के शिलालेखों का भी उल्लेख किया उन्होंने संस्कृत साहित्य के एक वेद वचन द्वारा साहित्य की महानता को प्रकाशित किया जो इस प्रकार है ‘असतो मा सद्गमय तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय मृत्योर्मा अमृतम् गमाय'.

Tश्रीमती मीता जी ने हिंदी साहित्य की लेखिका निर्मला पुतुल के विषय में भी चर्चा की उन्होंने निर्मला जी के जीवन की कथनी बता कर लेखक किसी भी स्थिति में अपने लेखन को सर्वोच्च कोटी तक ले जा सकता है यह स्पष्ट किया। उन्होंने निर्मला जी की आत्मकथा ‘आलो अंधारी' के विषय में चर्चा करते हुए कहा की एक अनपढ़ महिला जो ठीक से पढ़ना लिखना भी नहीं जानती थी वह अगर अपनी आत्मकथा इतने रोचक ढंग से लिख सकती है जिसका अनुवाद 12 भाषाओं में किया गया हो तो हम तो शिक्षित हैं हम क्यों नहीं अपने लेखन कौशल्य का विकास कर सकते? इस तरह मीता जी ने सभी शिक्षक शिक्षिकाओं को भाषा में लेखन कौशल्य के महत्व को समझाया और सभी को कुछ ना कुछ लिखने हेतु प्रेरित किया। उनके द्वारा संचालित यह कार्यशाला वास्तव में एक अविस्मरणीय अनुभव साबित हुई।

कार्यशाला भाषा में लेखन तथा साहित्य सृजन हेतु की गई चर्चा के मुख्य बिंदु साहित्य समाज का दर्पण है
- स्वाध्याय
- भाषा का ज्ञान
- रचना कौशल
- कथानक
- कथावस्तु
- सुस्पष्ट विचार श्रृंखला
- कथनोपकथन
- पात्रों का चयन
- मनोवैज्ञानिक गहराई और प्रेरणा की स्पष्टता
- काल की युग भावना और ऐतिहासिक परिप्रेक्ष्य
- मानवता और समाज के प्रति हमारा दायित्व बोध
- आदर्शोंन्मुख और यथार्थवादी विचारधारा
- लेखन-शैली व नए शब्द गठन का सामर्थ्य

महोदया नीता जी ने उपरोक्त सभी बिंदुओं की सविस्तार चर्चा कर समझाया कि एक आदर्श लेखक कैसे बना जा सकता है उनका यह प्रयास वास्तव में सराहनीय है मैं तहे दिल से उनकी आभारी हूं कि उन्होंने सबका इतना अच्छा पथ प्रदर्शित किया।

She said that we cannot force a child to learn in a particular manner so being a teacher we need to explore different methods.

Being a teacher, we get an opportunity to nourish children and consider them as sacred beings. But in this pandemic situation, teaching is a challenge as teachers have to present themselves virtually. Nowadays teachers need to work as a facilitator or as a cheerleader who inspire the children. A teacher should make a class active and give importance to life skills. Peer tutoring and hands-on learning methods should be practiced rather than feeding information which they can easily get from the digital platforms.

A teacher should always keep in mind that no child in a class is less intelligent but as a teacher she needs to learn, unlearn and relearn the methods of teaching.

It was indeed an informative session which helped the teachers to get answers of many questions which keep arising in their mind
