Hello Educators, 

How are you doing? How is your online teaching going on? What kind of problems are you facing now?

We have started a social initiative to help and support School teachers, Educators, schools, college lectures to teach online during these global pandemic. 

So many teachers in India have adopted to teach online using live conferencing tools like Zoom, Google Meet, WebEx. Most of teacher, lecturers have learned to teach online using video conferencing tools. 

But there are so many cons of teaching and studying using video conferencing apps. 


This site includes word search puzzles covering a variety of topics appropriate for primary grade, middle school and high school students, but many of the topics will be of interest to puzzle-engaged adults as well.

In India, even today efforts are being made to make education child centered. What should be the motto of teaching ? Increasing enthusiasm in kids or just getting them ready to pass an examination. It is being said, if eduction is interesting and entertaining at the same time, it becomes memorable for lifetime. Within four years of short job tenure a teacher from Jaunpur has brought a big change not only in his school but also motivates others to get the best out of their students.

 The social sciences are a very important and amazing field of study. A division of science, social sciences embrace a wide variety of topics from anthropology to sociology. The social sciences cover a wide range of topics that are crucial for understanding human experience/ behavior in groups or as individuals.

 As children, our world consisted of our immediate surroundings. It was only through our history lessons that we began to discover the complexities of the world we never saw. From an early age, we were able to learn about different cultures to our own from the Ancient Egyptians to the Vikings. It was through an array of learning tools ranging from songs and videos to textbooks and lessons that made history an inspiring and complete learning experience.

The other day, while driving back from Shimoga I got into a bit of an argument with a close friend of mine. Traversing into philosophy, we were debating whether there is anything called ‘gray’ in life. It all began when I took serious objection to his words ‘there is nothing called gray in my life, I always live in black and white!’ He further went to the extent of saying: “I will never teach my children that there is something called gray.”

What is the use of learning history?” As thirteen year-old, I unobtrusively slipped this question into the question box, hoping to hear my teacher’s illuminating answer. (I hadn’t the temerity to ask such a question to her face.) I can still recall how I waited eagerly for her to pull my question out of the box.

 There were a number of chits in the box that day.
