Using colored paper including Origami paper provided by their Sensei the Friday before school, and pens and glue which they prepared themselves students took to the task of creating Hina Doll Origami. Most of the students finished their work in the class period, took a photo of their work and uploaded it to ManageBac.
Pramod Seena, chemistry teacher for DP students shares her thoughts on one of their lessons this week.
“E-learning is very effective in DP classrooms utilizing online textbooks and other online resources. We gathered in hangout/ google meet, interact with each other through text or voice. There is increased participation and engagement with learning resources/ tools like Kognity, Managebac, etc.”
