Desi 'Jugaad' at its best! Chemistry teacher’s hack to teach kids virtually is winning the internet
New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: The whole world has shifted to online mode since the dreadful contagious coronavirus pandemic started in late December last year. The education sector is among the many which have taken a strong blow due to the COVID-19-induced lockdown.
Schools and other educational institutions across the globe have witnessed a shift towards online learning as countries around the world have been under lockdown for over months now to curb the spread of the contagion. Teachers and professors from colleges and schools have been holding classes virtually or recording lectures for their students while sharing and teaching them on online platforms.
Recently, a chemistry teacher from Pune, Moumita B, took to LinkedIn to share how she has been holding online classes amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown. She posted a video that shows her writing on a chalkboard while she explains the lesson. She wrote, "Hello everyone, my only motive was to create a classroom environment with interaction and with board work so students find it fruitful."
What's interesting is that the teacher used a hack to ensure that her students could see the chalkboard, the teacher who did not have a tripod - came up with a true Indian jugaad or hack. She tied her phone to a cloth hanger and suspended it between a plastic chair and the ceiling to create a makeshift tripod, allowing her students to look at the chalkboard as she taught.
A screenshot of the video is going viral on Twitter receiving a lot of praise. It has gained 3.8 likes within a day. A twitter user shared the screenshot along with a caption "I don't know where or who. But this picture made my day. A teacher setting up their online class with available resources. There is so much passion in this picture that makes me overwhelmed."

"Salute to these leaders." others commented. A guy said, "If this is not called passion, then what is?"
