Paper to Screen- The Future of Education
A must read for all the current and aspiring teachers! Every teacher wants to give their best while teaching their students, be it in a physical class or a virtual one. The problem of how to meet the student’s expectations and especially in a time like the world is facing every single moment these days, how to hold the attention of the children and impart the best knowledge a teacher can while being in a virtual classroom, is enormous. This book amazingly and very efficiently explains the above said problem and the way the author has written makes it feel as if every single teacher can be as proficient as the author himself.
Another special feature of this book is that it’s a guide not only for the teachers but also for students and parents alike. To understand and explain the problems faced by three sets of very different people(teacher, student and parent)and then give solutions to these problems is a feat very few people can achieve. The global pandemic, namely COVID-19, has not only resulted in worldwide troubles and huge shifts in economy but also brought out exceptional thinkers like the author of the book who has mesmerised all those who have got the chance to read his book.
As it happens, I fortunately have the chance of knowing the author personally and would like to grab the opportunity of congratulating him on adding another feather to his already overfilled cap. Congratulations Sir!
