Describe a school you went to in your childhood
- Where it was?
- What it was like?
- What did you learn there?
- How did you feel about it?
I studied in one school from LKG to class 10. The name of the school is St. Joseph’s Convent School. It is on the Main Road in Phagwara. It is a beautiful school. I have very fond memories of the time I spent there. It has many rooms. There is a separate wing for the primary classes. It has a library, a computer lab, science labs, a canteen, two big playgrounds and a beautiful lawn full of flowering plants. This school is affiliated to the ICSE Board.
A school you went to in your childhood cue cardApart from getting an academic education, we had a lot of extracurricular activities. I was part of dance club. Every year we had an annual function. Two months before that we used to start preparing some dance items. We used to do that in the zero periods. We also played badminton and cricket in the after school hours. Our school principal was very strict.
We were given punishment if we were not in proper uniform or when we didn’t do our homework. I remember, once I got the punishment for not bringing my homework notebook. I was very ashamed of myself. Now when I think back, I feel those were the best days of my life. I have many friends from my school time, with whom I am still in touch.
Follow-ups ( A school you went to in your childhood cue card)
- What’s the difference between the present and the past teachers?
In the past, teaching was a noble profession and teachers were respected a lot. Today, teachers have lost that status. This is mainly because teaching has become a business and the student is the customer. Another reason why teachers are not that respected is that today, we have many other sources of knowledge apart from the teachers.
- What is the difference between being taught by teachers and being taught by AI?
Artificial Intelligence or AI can teach a lot, but a teacher is still important. AI can teach what all is fed into it, but cannot customize the lesson according to the level of need of the student. A teacher, on the other hand, can come down to the level of the student and tailor his lesson accordingly. AI can check whether the student’s answer is wrong or right, but only the teacher can tell where the answer went wrong. A teacher can help the students remain focused on the study, whereas AI cannot do such monitoring. (Describe a school you went to in your childhood) however, there are certain advantages of learning through AI. AI can deliver the same lesson 10 times a day without missing any point, but a teacher has a limit on how much he can teach in a day. With the help of AI, education can be spread to the remotest corners. Teachers may not like to go there. All said and done, the need of the day is that teachers teach with the help of AI. So, students will have the benefits of both.
