Abstract

Schools in India have been closed from March 2020. Children have had no face-to-face interactions with teachers or peers since then. In the past one-and-ahalf years, various models of online education have been tried out. Studies conducted to estimate the efficacy of these models revealed the vast inequities and divides in access to technology and the internet and the gross inadequacy of online mediums in imparting any true learning. (UNICEF, 2020, Azim Premji University, Myths of Online Education, 2020). Practitioners and parents across the country have raised concerns over the limitations of online medium in providing personalised attention to children’s academic and socio-emotional needs, which, in turn, form the basis for any meaningful learning. It comes as no surprise to us that the majority of school-going children have not only not had any significant learning, but they have also been engulfed in the scenario of ‘learning loss,’ or ‘academic regression’, which as we understand it, is the phenomenon of forgetting previously learned concepts.
