“Technology will never replace great teachers, but in the hands of great teachers, it’s transformational.” – George Couros
The year 2020 brought schools, colleges, and the whole education system to a standstill. Teachers were worried about the learning & future of their students. However, when all of his colleagues were busy worrying, he decided to go solution-oriented and started looking for ways of teaching. Here is the story of a super enthusiastic and optimistic teacher, Rajat Raheja. Rajat Sir is an extremely qualified and talented post-graduate teacher. He holds numerous educational degrees, Bachelor’s of Science and B.Ed to name a few. He hails from Kharia, Sirsa, and considers teaching as an integral part of his life. He holds expertise in the subjects like Industrial Chemistry & Organic Chemistry. Due to his keen interest in both subjects, he decided to take up a permanent career as a Chemistry teacher. Now, he teaches as a Chemistry teacher at VM National Senior Secondary School, Sirsa for the past two years.
While the struggle of finding the right online teaching app was on, he tried using various platforms like zoom, google meet, Microsoft teams, etc. However, nothing seemed up to the mark. Then he came across Teachmint, he decided to install the application and give it a try. He has been using Teachmint for almost a year now and he is all the praises of the app, he says-
“I have been using Teachmint for a very long time now and I can’t stop talking about the app. All the features of the app are top-notch and the application is just perfect. From taking automated attendance, assigning homework, conducting quick live polls, or making question papers, the application is excellent. My students love the learning experience at Teachmint and they always give good feedback for the app.”
Rajat Sir strongly believes that the next few years would be transformational for the educational system. “In the next four to five years we will see the world of education moving online. The day is not far when the schools or coaching institutes would permanently run online”, added Rajat Sir. He loves the experience of online teaching and said that he would like to continue teaching in the hybrid model as there are uncountable benefits of the same. He also mentioned that online education is a great opportunity for the students to outshine as online teaching helps them save time and be more productive. “Adopting online teaching is the greatest thing that has happened to the people of the 21st century. Students can read as many subjects as they want, explore numerous learning resources available online, and whatnot. No matter what the situation is, if the students keep working hard, they can achieve almost everything they want”, Rajat Sir added.
He also believes that teachers should keep themselves ready for the challenges and opportunities the future holds for them. He mentioned that the students and the society would highly demand online classes in the coming future and that it is the responsibility of the teachers to make the supply ready or keep themselves prepared for the same. Rajat Sir is not only ambitious but he is also very far-sighted. We appreciate his energy and enthusiasm and wish him all the best for his future. Thank you Rajat Sir for choosing us.
