Winter is round the corner and predictions say we are not going back to our regular life just as yet. While online education proved itself as a plausible prototype of face-to-face classes, education quality remains the prime concern of many educational institutions.
The purpose of a school library is to cater to the information needs of its users– the students, teaching and non-teaching staff.
Restrictions during lockdown, closure of schools, social distancing, and above all the miserable feeling of being socially adrift, the pandemic has upended the lives of children in 2020!

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the world like no other calamity has since the Spanish Flu of 1918. Almost all countries the world over have suffered the onslaught of the virus and it has brought about drastic changes to our lifestyle.
Covid-19 is still in the air and during this crucial time, schools have made a quick and remarkable entry into cyberspace. The entire teaching-learning process has seen a huge evolution, but approaches continue to be the same.
Most education stakeholders have found several issues and challenges in transacting teaching and learning during the pandemic. But all credit to our teachers as they do their best to build some kind of a learning environment for their students.
As we are adapting to the ‘new normal’ and moving from physical classrooms to virtual ones, what we most need to develop in our students is the skill of collaboration.
Digital learning first began in 2012. At that time, technology in education was meant to enhance the role of the teacher and help students explore questions.

By continuing to teach in our old ways we have lost the chance to embrace ‘newer’ ways of teaching.
