The teachers were encouraged to do the activity of Scaffolding in the class, which helps the children to think of alternative and novel ways to use art materials. It also helps children to develop problem solving skills. We were also inspired to harness students’ creativity through answering ‘why’ questions, and to create a classroom that recognises creativity.
The workshop concluded with Piaget’s concept of discovery learning which includes exploring, experimenting, creating and learning. We also discussed how creative thinking needs to be shared and validated by others socially.

Workshop on Music Therapy

Name of the workshop – Music Therapy
By Farah Hussain
Date: 19.5.23
Time: 9 am
Venue: Conference Room

Dr. Farah Hussain, an alumni of D.P.S. R.K.Puram was invited for a talk on Music Therapy and it’s effects on mental health and education. She spoke on ways in which music is used as a tool in our daily lives to gain stamina and boost our mood and energy and also how it is used as a tool to teach in an effective manner.
She started the seminar with a musical name game. She asked the audience to write their name on a sheet of paper and how each one got their name. While everyone was writing a happy song was going on in the background. Soon a few were called out and were asked to read what they had written. It was fun to hear some of the responses.
She then moved on to the butterfly story which taught us that our struggles and our journey is ours only. We need to push ourselves and create a new path in order to face the struggles and come out of it.
This was followed by a handwriting activity where she asked all the right handers to write with their left hand and later on asked everyone on their experience. The audience felt a sense of achievement after this activity.
Lastly, she mentioned that in our struggles the negatives are prominent but in actual our positive strengths are more prominent than the negatives. We need to fight from the problems.
It was an enriching experience for all the teachers attending.

● Contextualizing disability in the classroom
A brief narration of the plot of the book ‘The Country of the Blind’ – wherein the sighted was the disabled being the odd one out’.Hence, who is disabled depends on the context.The Gellaudet University in Washington DC, also popularly known as the silent university is a real life example of context where it us mandatory to know sign language for admission. This is the process of reverse exclusion.
● Another hypothetical story about ‘The Village of the Wheelchair Users’ where the ceilings are low again emphasised on the context making people feel able or disabled.
● RPwD Act in NEP 2020 recognizes 21 diversities or disabilities. Every teacher should develop the skills to make every child feel included in a classroom. This can happen through identifying the inequality in the system, understanding equity and equality and
the difference between the two while ensuring justice
● The participants were tasked with thinking of ten ways to enhance fine motor skills in pairs to increase readiness for writing.
● As an educator, it is pertinent to see the child holistically, rather than focusing solely over a disability. If all you see is a disability, you can’t see the child as a whole. The point was emphasised with anecdotal discussion over the impact that creating a sense of responsibility in the child on the child’s confidence.
● “Students who are loved at home come to school to learn and students who aren’t come to school to be loved.” The need and want of love and affection in the child has to be identified. Understanding the familial context of a child helps the educator connect
better with the child and create an equitable environment in the classroom.
● Teachers must develop their own safety net to ensure that they are able to develop a safety net for their students.
● Communication is the key between parents and teachers.
● Maintaining the child’s self esteem is the most important while helping the child in skill development.
● A bigger task should be broken into smaller tasks to create achievable targets.
● Teachers must empathise with parents in their learning process and understand their thought process too.
● Positive reinforcement can work wonders for a child and must be employed in a classroom environment.
