At the primary level attention was given to creating an inclusive classroom environment and introducing and adopting teaching strategies to keep the students productive and motivated. The importance and practicality of English language skills and innovative teaching methodologies were the focus of the workshops.
Maths workshops focused on how teachers can simplify mathematical problems using trick operations and several hands-on activities to make the subject fun for all the students. The Science and Social studies workshops were about making learning easier by incorporating various techniques like learning through chants, group activities, models, role playing, puzzle games etc. A workshop on Effective Lesson Planning was also held in which all the components of a lesson plan were discussed in detail and a group activity was done by the teachers to incorporate their new learning.
