1. Lecture

This is the most commonly followed methods in teaching in various educational institutions throughout the country.

It is considered as the most ideal method for a teacher to address large classrooms. Lecture refers to an oral presentation of lessons to a group of students.

2. Class discussion

This is one of the best interactive methods in teaching in which both teachers and students in the classroom exchange ideas on the topic of discussion.

Teacher App

When used effectively, this strategy can help students to develop their thinking, learning, understanding and problem-solving skills. A good teacher can create a positive class environment where students can freely discuss their ideas.

3. Oral Questions

One of the most commonly used methods in teaching. In this, instead of just a passive way of lecturing, teachers can encourage the students to ask questions in return.

This in fact helps teachers to understand the areas that the students find it difficult to comprehend and to explain things better. This helps the classes to be more engaging and interesting.

4. Repeating points

Instead of just giving an oral presentation of the lesson once, the teacher repeats the important points once they cover a subject unit before passing on to the next.

This helps the students to recollect what was taught in the previous unit before going to the next. Repeating points would register the content easily on students’ minds. Some teachers also ask the students to repeat the points he/she just covered.

5. Buzz groups

In these methods in teaching, teachers split the whole class into small groups and give them a topic of discussion so that the students can come up with ideas on the subject or solutions to a problem within a short period of time. This method helps to stimulate discussion and to get student feedback.

6. Demonstration

Instead of just giving an oral explanation of a subject, in these methods in teaching. the teacher produces enough materials or proofs to make things clear. For example, if a teacher wants to explain the functioning of a handy device, he/she can bring it to the classroom to explain it better and easily.

In another context, it can be a demo of a step-by-step process that helps students to easily connect it to theory.

7. Presentation

In this method, the teacher gives a power point presentation in the classroom. The slides include diagrams, charts, images or algorithms to make the session exciting and engaging. Teachers can use projectors connected from computers to address larger number of students.

8. Student reports

These methods in teaching are designed to get proper response or feedback from the students after the completion of a lesson. They will be asked to prepare reports based on what was taught in class. This gives the teachers an idea of what the students have understood.

9. Debate:

This method of teaching helps to explore the range of views on a subject. Students will be split into groups and then, they can debate on the subject provided to them. In most cases, the subjects given to groups will be contrasting so that they can argue with sharp points. This friendly debate is meant to develop critical thinking.

10. Quiz:

Once they cover a subject, teachers can conduct a quiz containing questions related to what was taught.

The students can be divided into quiz groups to make the whole idea interesting or sometimes, one or two students can represent a group. These methods of teaching are meant to evaluate student understanding and to improvise the instructional methods.

11. Puzzles

This is an easy way for teachers to teach subjects like mathematics, that students usually find hard to comprehend. This, in fact, helps to develop their problem-solving skills and creative thinking. The puzzle levels depend on the student groups.

For example, teachers can use simple word puzzles to improve vocabulary skills of elementary students. Teaching with puzzles helps to improve the parallel, vertical, lateral and confrontational thinking skills of students

Examples: Some students find it difficult to understand the lessons when it comes to studying theory alone. However, when teachers explain the facts with examples, it helps students to understand the lesson better. Sometimes, teachers even come up with real life examples which make learning easy and effective. With examples, students find it easy to relate to the theory.

12. Textbook assignments

In these methods in teaching, students will be asked to do textbook assignments once the teachers complete a unit. These assignments improve students’ understanding of the lessons taught.

Also, the application level of assignments will further enhance their learning. Some of the assignments would demand more research and this in turn, helps the students to develop their self learning skills.

13. Class summary

In this method, teachers ask the students to create a summary of what is taught in every class. Students can recollect the points taught and keep a write-up for future reference.

They can keep all the notes together and use them to revise during exams. The write-ups contain all important points that were taught in class. This makes it easy for students to refer from compared to textbooks.

14. Library research

This is one of the effective methods in teaching. Textbook lessons are always a brief content of many vast subjects. Therefore, teachers can encourage students to go for a library research of the subject taught.

Most schools contain big libraries with a vast collection of books. Referring to library books enhances students’ research skills and deepens their understanding of the subject.

15. Flashcards

This is one of the best ways to teach subjects like vocabulary or mathematics. This is an inexpensive and portable tool that makes learning easier for students.

This memory-aid tool has a different application for higher classes. They prepare a problem, question, or sight word on one side and the answer prompt on the other side.

16. Field trips

Students of all age group  loves this method in teaching. An organized trip to a place which has a significant relation with the subjects taught makes learning more interesting.

It also helps to improve student-student and student-teacher interactions. It is an opportunity for students to observe, ask questions and have an out of the regular classroom experience.

17. Infographics

It is one of the best teaching tools that can be used to easily convey the subject to the student. Instead of giving them a lot of written information, this visual learning tool lets teachers to easily teach a vast subject with a single infographic.

It is a fact that humans can easily process an image much faster than texts and that makes learning with infographics really effective.

18. Class projects

Project-based learning lets students to understand and to remember a subject for a longer period than just reading the textbook content.

Spending on the subject for an extended period of time lets them to go deeper into different areas. Working on a project improves their critical thinking, collaboration, communication and self-management skills.

19. Laboratory Experiments

This is a great opportunity for students to investigate, analyze and to reflect on the subjects taught in class.This is one of the interesting methods in teaching for students.

They will find it easy to relate the application to the theory and it also improves the power of observation and reasoning in students.

In addition to enhancing their higher-order thinking ability, it also gives an opportunity to the students to improve their skills in using laboratory equipment and instruments.

20. Posters

Teachers can present lessons in the form of posters to make it visually appealing to students and to free them of the boredom from studying just theory.

They can also ask the students to prepare posters for certain lessons or subjects that were already taught in class.

These methods of teaching enhance students’ ability to develop information from a subject and then, visually present it for an audience.

21. Use of motion pictures

This is another interesting way to present a subject in a larger classroom.

In this method of teaching, a series of still pictures created in rapid succession will be projected via a motion picture projector. This is the best way to teach functioning or ongoing processes such as growth of plants or changes of a body system.

This, in fact, grabs more attention from students and helps teachers to explain vast subjects within in a short period of time.

22. Storytelling

In this method, teachers present lessons in the form of stories. Teachers can also come up with stories related to the subject in the middle of a lesson to make the session more interesting. As students usually love hearing stories, this method of teaching is sure to grab their attention.

23. Student teachers

In these methods in teaching, students take up the role of teachers. They will be asked to prepare lessons and to teach the rest of the students. Each student will be allotted a subject and given ample time, say 1 week, to collect information and materials for teaching. These methods of teaching are meant to develop research and presentation skills.

24. Weekly Assessments

Simply progressing from one lesson to another doesn’t always make sense. It is also important to see if the students really understand what you teach.

Weekly assessments are of great help in this regard. It helps the teachers to analyze the areas the students found difficult to understand and to make changes in teaching strategies if needed.

25. Word walls

This is a really interesting teaching strategy in classrooms where both students and teachers can contribute to word walls.

A space in the classroom will be assigned for the share their ideas, inventions or data or image of an important class lesson with their peers.

26. Workbooks

In this method of teaching, teachers can prepare workbooks on their subject or use the workbooks allotted by the school. This is a method to reinforce the lessons learned during a lecture and to give students some self-study time during the hour.

Students can use this option to analyze their understanding of the subject. Teachers can also use these methods of teaching to assess the students’ understanding about the lessons covered during class.

27. Home tests

This is one of the common methods of teaching adopted for students of any class. In this method, teachers assign a set of tasks for the students to complete at home.

This can include reading comprehension, writing, typing, and problem solving or reviewing a lesson before a test or practicing a skill. Parents can also have a look at the home works to ensure that their child performs better.

28. Classroom activities

The activity-based teaching method is gaining popularity these days for its ability to keep students active and engaged. This student-centred approach involves the students mentally and physically in the subject and thereby, provides them with a productive learning experience.

It also helps to develop students’ thinking ability and creativity in addition to providing them with a deeper understanding of the subject. The activities can either be individual or team-based.

29. Idea into the picture

This is more of a creative side of teaching. Students can be asked to express an idea taught in class in the form of a picture.

Each student will express their ideas differently and this gives the whole class a wide exposure to creative thoughts.

Teachers can use these methods of teaching once in a while to make the classes more engaging and interesting in between the routine lectures.

30. Reading aloud

Reading text aloud can help students to get it easily registered into their minds. In addition to providing a better understanding of the subject, reading aloud can also turn the students into active listeners.

Listening to their counterparts reading the lessons aloud in class it gives the students a better understanding of the right way to pronounce new words they come across. Also, as every student is given a chance to read, it encourages class participation.

31. Drama

This is an ideal way to teach languages. Also, students get an opportunity to express themselves through dialogues and gestures thus improving their imagination and memory.

This is one of the meaningful communication activities that can be tried out in any classroom that promotes teamwork. A story or an idea from a subject can be used as the drama theme.

32. Surveys

It is a simple way to collect information on any subject and is considered effective for teacher evaluations and student perception.

Video surveys are another way to compare classrooms and education across cultures and to adopt a way that seems effective for the majority. The surveys can be in-classroom or online ones.

33. Unit tests

A subject comes with different modules or units. When a teacher completes a particular unit, he/she can conduct a test covering the key areas of that particular module.

These methods of teaching will help students to make the present unit thorough before passing on to the next and the teacher can give additional classes on the units where the students scored less. Teachers can also hold special classes for students to help them improve in the areas where their performance was weak.

34. Think Pair Share

This is a collaborative learning strategy to develop teamwork among the students. In this method, they can work in partnerships to solve a problem or a puzzle related to a subject.

This allows them to think individually as well as to share ideas to come up with a solution. They can discuss the ideas with their allotted partner before sharing it with a larger group.

35. Jigsaw

This classroom activity allows students to rely on each other to succeed. In this method, a puzzle is broken into small units and is distributed amongst small groups formed within a classroom.

This emphasizes cooperative learning as one can actively help another to solve the puzzle. This cooperative learning promotes student learning and interdependence.

36. Role-playing

This technique allows students to explore realistic situations as part of their learning process.

They can interact with others in a managed way to tryout diverse strategies in a supported environment. In this method, particular roles to play are assigned for each student as part of a interaction. The students can act according to specific instructions and they can redo it based on the reflection and discussion after first trial.

37. Turn and Talk

This is an oral language support strategy in which students are given scaffold interactions in order to formulate ideas on a subject. They can share it with others.

In this method, all students get a chance to share their thoughts on the subject in a low-risk setting. The teacher’s role is to ensure that partnering of the students is not random but strategic.

38. Puppets

This is an interesting way to teach a new language in primary classrooms. Puppets with a movable mouth can be a good tool to teach phonics and basic number concepts.

This mode of teaching builds enthusiasm amongst young students as the puppets can be used to animate a topic.

39. Flannel boards

This is an interactive learning tool that can be used to teach primary level students. Teachers can make use of flannel boards to easily handle different subjects rather than teaching orally.

Flannel boards can be used as a personalized storytelling board or a counting board to teach mathematics. It can also take forms of a lapboard, game board, or graphics boards based on the subject to be handled.

40. Case studies

This teaching tool is a great way to showcase the application side of a theory or the subject concept to real-life situations.

A contextual analysis of a subject gives the students a better learning experience rather than just memorizing what’s given in textbooks.

Case studies can be either fact-driven or deductive and sometimes, they can be context- driven with multiple solutions.

41. Pen pals

In this method, students can write about exchange letters with people of another community or country. This provides the students with better exposure to different languages, arts, geography etc. Also, exchanging letters or write-ups contributes to improving students’ awareness of global societies and cultures.

42. Audio-tutorial lessons

This is an alternative to regular classroom lectures and is an innovative method to create an engaging learning experience.

Subject experts give lectures on different lessons in the form of audio clips to the students during class hours. They can also make a copy of the same to use while learning at home.

43. Mobile apps

At present, mobile apps are one of the widely used modes of teaching. Apps like Skype are capable of helping schools to visually bring experts to classrooms and apps like Socrative helps in visualizing student understanding.

Other popular mobile apps useful in classrooms include OneNote (a digital note-taking app), Google Classroom, ( a free web-based platform to save time and paper in classrooms) etc.

44. Experiential Learning

This is one of the comprehensive methods of teaching through first-hand experience. It provides outside the classroom setting learning experience that helps students to acquire advanced skills and knowledge.

Experiential Learning includes service-learning projects, internships, field trips, studies abroad and field research. This is in fact a simple but effective approach of learning by doing.

45. Use of pretest

A student’s level of understanding can be assessed beforehand using this method. The teachers can then use this information to plan their instructional strategies.

A student’s baseline knowledge in the subject can be determined initially to better plan their teaching.

Conducting tests after teaching can also help the teachers to assess where the students stand in the learning process.

46. Flowcharts

A sequence of events or actions in a lesson can be taught better using flowcharts.

These methods of teaching are also used to explain different stages in a process, the relationship between two levels or the process of reaching a solution. Using a flowchart, complicated ideas can be summarized to be explained in classrooms.

47. Vocabulary drills

In this teaching strategy, the teacher says a word or a sentence and the students will repeat after him/her. When the teacher changes the prompt next time, students will follow what the teacher does.

This is referred to as drill & practice as knowledge or skill can be achieved through repetitive practice. It can be a good option to learn new languages, spelling or even mathematical functions such as subtraction or addition.

48. Bulletin boards

Having bulletin boards in classrooms play a great role in creating a positive learning atmosphere. You can use them to display student work or anything related to the subjects being taught.

Bulletin boards help students to remember important areas of a lesson. It can also be a good aid to a lecture assignment, tutorial or group work. It helps students to remember and memorize key elements of the subjects being taught, including new words or concepts of the week or day.

49. Think Aloud

The teachers verbalize aloud when they read a subject in class. This includes describing things that helps students to construct meaning from a text.

They can improve their comprehension as well as thinking ability. This also means to re-read a sentence to make sense and read ahead to make it clear.

50. Brainstorming

It can be a small or large group activity in a class. In this method of teaching, students are taught on how to get ideas onto paper. This is the way of generating ideas within a group setting by posing a question or a problem. Everyone can contribute to the free flow of ideas with possible answers to the puzzle.

51. Alphabet Brainstorm

This is a varied approach to the usual brainstorming that can be a whole-class activity or can be done in small groups. In these methods of teaching, students are asked to generate or express ideas beginning with each letter of the alphabet. This is a quick means to create thoughts, evaluate prior knowledge, or to assess learning level.

52. Differentiated Instruction

These methods of teaching encourage equal success rates for all regardless of differences in ability with personalized instructions.

This is also an ideal teaching method for second language learners. A student with lower reading skills will be paired with another student who is advanced in the language. They are then asked to write out questions if they don’t understand any part of the story.

53. Cramming

These methods of teaching simply mean to memorize large amounts of data or information in a short period of time. It is ideally used to excel in performance-based assessment and as part of exam preparation.

Last-minute cramming is usually not recommended but the technique can be used effectively beforehand. The students are given easy codes or shortcuts to remember a list of items or the order of an activity.

54. Readaloud

This simple strategy is to read lessons aloud in the class. This instructional practice integrates variations in pace, volume, pitch, tone, pause and eye contact.

They also include questions and comments in order to create a fluent and pleasing delivery. This is the right way to introduce new vocabulary and to enhance expressive reading and fluency.

55. Interactive read aloud

This is a variation of the read-aloud teaching technique which integrates a series of purposeful activities including shared teaching. This basically means to preview the book, scaffolding on prior knowledge and teaching reading fluency.

The teacher will ask purposeful questions and will emphasize the elements of the story. He/she will then summarize the lesson to bring closure to the class.

56. Reciprocal teaching

This instructional activity involves small group reading sessions in which students are given the role of teachers. Teachers will first model and then, teach the students to guide group discussions.

The key elements of this technique involve generating questions, summarizing, clarifying, and predicting. During this activity, teachers can monitor their comprehension while students read.

57. Guided reading

In this instructional approach, a teacher will work with groups of students who showcase similar reading behaviors i.e., those who are capable of reading similar levels of text. This technique is useful in developing independent reading skills in students.

The reading text will be chosen in such a way that the students can read it with skilful support of teachers.

58. Problem Tree

This is an effective tool that is used to teach all the possible causes and effects of a concerned problem.

Clearly identifying the multiple causes helps them to understand the context better and to ease off the associated complexity with the problem. This is best used in classrooms while helping students to develop comprehensive class projects.

59. Active Listening

Rather than just going on with lectures, active listening skills are also inevitable for a good teacher. This helps to create empathy and understanding with the class. It also helps to assess if the teaching is effective and if the students understood what was being taught.

60. ABL

ABL is a student-centred approach in which the students continuously take part in different activities other than in-class sessions in order to achieve knowledge.

This is in fact the method of learning by doing what helps the students to develop as individuals. Teachers can choose activities in which student’s senses are stimulated and can guide them in their approach.

61. ABA

The Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) teaching method is a great way to educate students with autism. This includes teaching with prompts- encouraging them to give the desired response and modelling-showing how a task can be done.

Discrete Trial Training (DTT) is also part of the process in which the large tasks are divided into steps or subtasks to make it easy.

62. Bank Street

It is also referred to as development-interaction approach in which a student is educated emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually.

This is one of the common approaches to teach primary school kids in an interdisciplinary, experience-based, and combined setting. In this effective method, the teacher works personally with children by understanding his/her interests.

63. Montessori

It is an integrated approach that combines hands-on learning, self-directed activity, and collaborative play for elementary students and thereby, helps them to develop independence in a prepared classroom environment.

These methods of teaching allow students to have creative choices in their learning. Teachers can provide age-appropriate activities to steer the process. Cooperative learning: This method combines students of mixed levels of ability who are arranged into groups.

They are then rewarded based on the group’s success and not solely for an individual member most of the times. Students can work in groups to complete a common task in a structured way, thus developing team work.

64. Flipped Classroom

The typical lecture process is reversed in this teaching strategy. Before the actual class session, students are asked to view video lectures at home.

They will then use the knowledge gained from these lectures to practice exercises, projects, or discussions during the class hours.

65. Deduction

In these methods of teaching, learners are given rules first followed by examples and after that, they practice the lesson. This is a teacher-centred approach which is ideal for teaching languages. It is really helpful for lower level learners who require a clear base to start a lesson.

66. Induction

In contrast to the deduction method, this is more like a student centric approach. This is a reverse model to teach a new language in which examples are given first and the learners are then asked to find the rules. They can detect or notice patterns and work out a personalized rule. A new theory can emerge from the data.

67. Gamification

Irrespective of the grade of your students, you can apply gamification in your classroom to make learning fun. Students always love to play and these methods of teaching can really take out the stress from the typical lectures.

Game elements such as badges, points, and level achievements can be brought to keep the students engaged and active throughout the class.

68. Hands-on

These method helps to achieve authentic understanding and application of a fact or a theory and not just memorization.

In this strategy, students are engaged in physical assignments or activities while learning. This is not just applicable for subjects like physics or chemistry but also for mathematics.

The physical evidence for thinking and reasoning gives more sense for mathematical ideas and they can solve problems easily.

69. Hands-off

The students are given only minimal instructions in this approach unlike lengthy explanations on the subject. Teachers urge the students to study independently by challenging them and brainstorming. Instead of just answering their questions, they are asked to find out answers with proper research.

70. Unit method

The teacher divides the subject to be taught into different units first and then, teaches it one by one. Textbooks may come with units to make teaching and learning easy.

In this method, the teachers prepare their own set of units to give a personalized instruction of their convenience and by considering the understanding level of particular students in the class.

71. Vee maps

This is a tool to guide the thinking and learning of students during laboratory sessions. It usually contains six areas- focus question, concept map, data and analysis, word list, events, and conclusions. This can be customized based on the subject handled in the lab.

72. Cubing

This is an easy to use approach in which six different topics can be taught or explained to students in a single step. Each side of the cube will have one concept or idea and students can cover the sides one by one.

This can also be used in activity learning in which cube is rotated and one side is chosen.

73. Sandwich

The teaching information can be integrated by considering the diverse needs of students in the target group. This is a fast and efficient technique to teach foreign languages.

It includes oral placing of an idiomatic translation in the mother tongue sandwiched between unfamiliar phrases in the learned language. It is then repeated so as to communicate meaning as rapidly and wholly as possible.

74. Seminar

This is a teaching technique that is ideal for higher learning. During seminar hours, students and teachers have discussions on a specific topic.

Usually, each student is assigned a topic and they give a prepared presentations on the same. The other students will then ask questions to clarify certain areas to come up with a final decision to solve a problem or to get comprehensive understanding of the concept.

75. Silent way

This is a language-teaching method in which extensive use of silence plays the key part. A structural syllabus is followed and the teacher concentrates on a small number of useful and versatile words. The learners are given more opportunities to speak as much as possible.

76. Spiral

in this method, the basic facts of a subject are taught first without giving much emphasis about details. Later, the details are introduced as the learning progresses. The information is reemphasized many times to the basic facts studied first to help them have a long-term memory on the lesson.

77. Snowball

This strategy is designed to aid students to predict, justify, summarize, and think critically on the subject. Teachers can personalize the approach to meet their exact purpose.

Students are asked to write a content related question on a paper and then, crumble it into snowball. Then, they can throw it in air and then, catch another snowball thrown by their counterparts. They can then try to answer the question on that snowball.

78. Dogmatic

Students almost literally reproduce what is memorized and need not apply knowledge in practice. This in fact encourages some degree of mechanical memory.

With this approach, students can save time and energy, and avoid unnecessary thinking. It is a good exercise to boost memory power.

79. Fishbowl

Teachers will explicitly educate students on a variety of social skills. In this approach, the whole class is given an opportunity to closely observe and study about social interactions.

To make it interesting, teachers can give a thought-provoking problem or a question to the fishbowl group and those staying outside will be listeners. Unlike other methods, the entire group can participate in a conversation as students take turns to be inside the fishbowl.

80. Abacus

This is an ideal approach to help kids to learn mathematics in an interesting way. It is designed with colorful beads to make learning more fun and exciting. The concepts are reinforced through their sense of touch. The simple arithmetical operations can be taught with mental visualization.

81. Simulation

This is a kind of experimental learning in which the reality of the scenario is experienced to gather meaning from it. It can take different forms based on the subject being taught.

For instance, medical student trainees can practice a procedure in a simulated learning environment before doing it with the actual patient.

82. Fishbone

This is a diagram based teaching technique for problem solving. In the fishbone diagram, the head of the fish will have the change that is being analyzed and the ribs of the fish have the reasons for the change. The riblets will have supporting evidence or relevant key terms.

83. Raft

It integrates reading and writing. Students are asked to write about what they have read or studied to illustrate their depth of understanding.

This form of teaching gives students an understanding of their role as a writer. They can get ideas on the varied formats for writing, the audience to be addressed and the content expected.

84. Future Wheel

In these methods in teaching, teachers instruct about the direct and indirect future consequences related to a specific change or growth in the lesson using graphical visualisation. This foresight method is a form of structured brainstorming. It is used to show complex interrelationships and to get organized thoughts about a process.

85. Talk and chalk

It is an interactive lecture methods in teaching using whiteboards or blackboards. The oral presentation will be less; instead, and the teachers write and draw on boards or solve problems with detailed steps.

Students will also be given chalks at times to solve a problem or draw an object or to reproduce what was taught.

86. Mind maps

This revolutionary approach makes both teaching and learning more effective. These maps are innovative thinking tools that help students to externalize and visualize difficult concepts and to easily connect between different ideas.

A basic map will first have a central idea to which branches and keywords are added. You can add colors or images to make easy connections.

87. Z to A

In this different teaching idea, the application part of a theory or concept is taught first so that the students will be interested to study about it further.

Followed by that, the actual concept is taught. This approach helps them to have a long lasting memory about correlation of a concept.

88. Discovery

This is constructivist, inquiry-based learning that is ideal for problem solving situations. The learner is supposed to draw and discover facts and relationships from existing knowledge and their own past experiences.

They are supposed to interact with their surroundings by exploring and influencing objects, fighting with enquiries and controversies.

89. Socratic

Students are given questions and not answers. This method of asking and answering questions encourages critical thinking and develops the capability to draw out ideas from underlying presumptions in students.

The students also get a deeper understanding of the topic with this forum for open-ended inquiry.

90. Didactic

This form of teaching encourages consolidation of knowledge with multiple elements such as ideas, formulae, facts, phenomena, and laws.

The information is organized better to make it logical and accessible to students. As part of this method, students are asked to find a solution to cognition tasks, take part in curricular and extracurricular activities and more.

91. Smart cards

These are magnetic strips with unique student profiles that are given for every student in the class. Plickers is one such method used to make low tech classrooms smarter.

Cards with multiple choices are issued to the students that they can use to choose an option when the teacher asks a question in the middle of the class. The teacher uses her device to scan the class and retrieve the answers. She can then evaluate the answers to know if students are following the class.

92. Task cards

The objective of using task cards in classrooms is to develop students as independent learners. Basically, a task card will have tasks or questions on them.

Students can use whiteboards to reveal the answers. These are one of the best tools for reinforcement and assessment. It can also be used as part of class activities. Teachers can mix up the tasks to make the game interesting.

93. Hybrid

Face-to-face teaching and online learning is combined in this hybrid approach. More than half of the class activities are made online. The use of technology gives a flexible learning environment for students.

This method is developed to enhance students’ conceptualization, knowledge acquisition, and communication skills.

94. Rubrics

In these methods in teaching, teachers can have consistent standards while assessing qualitative tasks and it encourages consistency in shared marking.

Students are given rubrics at times of an assessment that briefs the tasks to make them aware of the expectations out of it. They can use it to assess their own work while it progresses.

95. Design Thinking

This is a method to teach creative problem solving. Teachers can give hands-on design challenge as a class activity or in pairs or small groups.

Students can have an active and shared experience to explore design thinking in a solid time frame. They can apply discovery, ideation, interpretation, experimentation and evolution to reach a conclusion.

96. Explicit Teacher Modeling

Students are provided with a lucid, multi-sensory model of a skill or concept in this teaching approach. The teacher gives a multi-sensory instruction (visual, auditory, tactile). She describes and models this idea or concept for the students by breaking it into learnable parts.

98. Periodical Revision

Just giving a lecture of the topic may not be enough for every student to have a long term memory of what is taught.

99. Match it challenge

This is an interesting approach which is usually performed after giving a lecture on the topic as part of an assessment or memorizing.

Below we have mentioned the pros and cons of both Online and In-Person learning.

The Pros of Online Learning

Online courses can provide you with a wealth of benefits that help you grow professionally and personally.

1. FLEXIBILITY : – You can learn from any location with online learning. You can finish your tasks whenever you like, as long as you satisfy the weekly deadlines. You have greater flexibility working your education schedule around other commitments in your life, such as your family, profession, and other duties, owing to the flexibility that online learning gives.

2. TIME AND MONEY SAVING :- It is a major advantage of online learning that you don’t have to commute to the school/college campus to take classes. That means you can complete your coursework earlier and allocate more time to your other priorities.

3. WIDER NETWORKING POSSIBILITIES :- If you take an online course, you can interact with other students around the world. This could lead to professional opportunities you wouldn’t have had in a traditional classroom setting. It’s easy to be a passive participant, but if you’re investing the time and money, it’s much more fulfilling to take advantage of networking opportunities.

The Cons of Online Learning

1. NEED FOR SELF-MOTIVATION :- Need to complete self-paced courses on schedule, you’ll need to be extremely disciplined. If you delay, it may be more difficult to enjoy the full benefits of online education if you don’t have a tight class schedule to motivate you to attend a class at a specific time and location every week.

2. DISTRACTION :- Some people don’t have the luxury of a calm study environment. If your home environment is cluttered and full of distractions, such as screaming children or a noisy surrounding neighborhood, it may be hard to concentrate on your studies.

The Pros of Learning in Person

1.  DISTRACTION-FREE ENVIRONMENT :- Effective education requires concentration and focus. Classrooms, labs, and lecture halls provide distraction-free learning settings with all of the equipment and space you need, allowing you to focus on the lesson rather than the bothersome vehicle noise, or other disturbance noises during household work.

2. PRACTICAL LEARNING :- Everyone learns differently, and some students learn visually, while others prefer to take meticulous notes, and yet others prefer to learn by interacting. Additionally, some professions, such as learning to fix equipment or perform a medical procedure, require practical knowledge. In-Person Learning is a better option for those who need practical knowledge.

The Cons of Learning in person

1. LESS CONTROL OVER SCHEDULING :- You have significantly less control in a traditional classroom than you have in an online class over when and where you attend lectures. You might consider an online class if you have a busy schedule or if your availability fluctuates. You will have more control over your class schedule as a result of this.

2. COMMUTING DIFFICULTIES :- You’ll have to commute to and from campus if you take classes in person. Based on your living situation, this might take up a lot of your time and money. If you’re thinking about enrolling in an on-campus education, consider the difficulties of your daily commute.

3. HIGHER EXPENSES :- Due to relevant factors like student housing, on-campus meals, and public transportation or fuel for commuting, traditional students face higher expenses.

Conclusion :- The benefits and drawbacks of learning in person or online depend on many factors, including how much each student learns and how well teachers can teach. The costs of both learning styles, and the flexibility they provide, should be considered when choosing one. Recently, students have been exposed to both styles of learning and have become aware of their learning preferences because of recent situations. Although there are varying viewpoints regarding which method of learning is the most effective, it is up to each individual to determine which method works best for them or their kids in today’s competitive environment.

When it comes to online education and traditional education, there are benefits and drawbacks, which is why students should be aware of what to expect before attending a classroom or logging into one. In this comparison, we’ll look at some crucial areas where students’ experiences can differ significantly.

What is online education

Online learning is a type of distance learning that takes place over the internet, with the teacher providing a course at a specific time (synchronous) or the students completing a course at their own pace (asynchronous). The content is delivered in the form of text, images, or videos. Features such as online assessments may be included, as well as interactive activities.

What is traditional education?

Traditional Educational Class

Education traditionally takes place in a classroom. A teacher plans and teaches a specific topic lesson, using a variety of educational tools. For example, the teacher might present information on a blackboard or whiteboard, conduct classroom discussions, have groups or partners complete tasks, and engage students in individual exercises. Assign homework, class quizzes, or conduct informal assessments are part of the class.

Flexibility Factor

One of the most important factors to consider when weighing your options is how much time and energy you have each day to dedicate to your studies. Will you be able to attend full-time school/college or do you need more flexibility to accommodate your busy life.

In the first place, the most obvious benefit of online education is its flexibility. It allows you to work, support a family, and take classes all at the same time. Moreover, online classes also have deadlines, which gives students more control over how they spend their time. They can plan when to study, work on projects or assignments, attend lectures, and so on.

There is frequently a lack of flexibility in a traditional class format. You must attend your classes in person, which normally involves a commute and stringent scheduling. However, there are still a number of flexible class options available. If you want to take classes on a school/college campus, you can look for a school that can let you plan a schedule that fits your need.

Self-Discipline and Self-Motivation Factor

As previously said, attending school or college classes online provides students with greater freedom and control over their education. This, in return, requires a high level of self-discipline and self-motivation. You must be able to encourage yourself to finish essential reading and projects in an online class. You need to be able to manage your time effectively. However, these capabilities are also needed in traditional education.

Online lessons may be a good fit for you if you can work independently and manage your time properly. If you find it difficult to keep up with an online class, a more traditional environment can be more beneficial. It’s important to remember that becoming fully adjusted to online learning takes time. Setting a daily schedule and setting up a private workspace is just a couple of tactics you might use to ease into online education.

Social Interaction Factor

Many people wish for the traditional college experience, which includes classrooms, whiteboards, and walking around campus. Some people prefer to meet their teachers and classmates in person, and some people learn better that way. A traditional classroom format may benefit you if you are more of a social learner.

One common misperception about online education is that it does not require any interaction. In reality, your classmates and teachers are right at your fingertips! Collaborative resources such as Blackboard and video conferencing software are frequently used in online classes to stimulate regular exchanges, discussions, and brainstorming.

We could undoubtedly say that the evolution of smartphone technology is significantly transforming the educational arena in recent times. With extensive recognition of e-learning and the huge need for online education tools, educational apps and their development is turning out as the hot topic of discussion.

Moreover, as the covid days are demanding physical distancing, the need for remote learning and distant communication is knocking the door hard than ever before. Most of the countries call for online education and virtual classrooms and teachers are looking for decent applications to offer flawless learning. There is no wonder why apps like Zoom for education are now in great demand.

Zoom app has users that are spread across the globe with over 100 million downloads. The simplicity, ease of use and effectiveness has made it a top choice for educators.  Enthusiasts are also seeing this as an opportunity to develop awesome applications that offer features similar to the Zoom app.

how to create an app like zoom

So creating an app similar to it or an app that competes with it needs a lot of homework and preparedness.

Let us have a look at some important areas to consider for those who are looking to create an educational app like Zoom.

Steps Involved for Creating an App

If you are creating an app for the first time, getting it done with minimal effort needs a lot of homework and research. The best part is to follow a wise and systematic strategy that helps you reach your goal without many hurdles.

Some of the key steps that are unavoidable in the process include the following:

  • Sketch an appealing thought for the application
  • Invest some time in detailed market research involving similar apps
  • A reality check has to be performed and create a demo of your app
  • Go for a fascinating graphic design to make it likable
  • Set up the landing page for your initiative
  • Now you are all set to build the app with Swift and Xcode
  • Launch the application in the App Store with an eye towards end-users
  • Invest in some great marketing so that your app gets good exposure to a wider audience
  • Don’t hesitate to keep an eye on the user feedbacks and update the app as and when needed to fix the bugs if any and improve it.

In addition to all, make it a point to bring in some uniqueness to compete against similar apps in the market. Moreover, what users need now may not be the same after 10 years from now. So have a check on the varying trends and enhance the app on the go.

Choosing the Platform for App

This is a key step once you have finalized the idea for your app. The tools needed for the development as well as the estimated cost depend on this particular decision. The choice can be made among laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets, or go for a multiplatform app that supports all.

If you are planning for native apps, then the application should be developed separately for both Android and iOS platforms.

How to Create an App Like Zoom for Education (1) (1)

Choosing to build your application on WebRTC can be an ideal option as it supports all platforms and there is no restriction for particular platforms. Here are some other advantages of choosing a web based platform:

  • It comes with support for all basic and major browsers
  • No additional third party tool is required
  • Most of the desktop platforms provide it as a basic addition to the system

But if your priority is to develop it as an individual entity for particular platforms, then you can go for native apps, as well. The idea of a progressive web app can also be considered to get the best of both native and web platforms.

However, the final decision is dependent on the budgetary allocations, the actual app requirements as well as the available resources.

App Features and Requirements

Once you have selected the platform for the video conferencing app, you can decide on the handful of features that can make your app a standout among its counterparts. Some features are optional and others are a must-have but what you finalize depends on the budget and available resources.

Here are a few among the crucial app features and requirements to add to your replica of the Zoom app.

  • Registration & Profile Creation: Even when it is not present in the Zoom app, the registration process can be included using a single sign-up form to have an engaging user experience. Profile management comes next which includes some personal details like a profile picture, name, id, etc.
  • Contact list: This feature allows users to generate customized contact lists. Teachers can use this feature to group students according to their grades, subjects, or for students who need additional support.
  • Voice & Video Calls: This is one of the key ingredients of this app that lets users to make both voice and video calls according to their convenience. The audio quality should be clear and loud and video calls must abide by HD quality standards.
  • Group Calling: When it comes to online classes, one to one calls are not always relevant but the emphasis should be to include group calling options. As the scalability of the app depends on the budget, decide on the number of participants to 10, 50, or 100 accordingly.
  • Pre-call Video Preview: This option lets the users have a check on the camera before commencing the call. This gives them a chance to disable video if needed.
  • Instant Messaging: Whenever there is a poor connection or if a video call is not really necessary, an instant chat feature can come in handy. Include options for individual and group chats.
  • Search & Add Contacts: A search bar for contacts helps with easy integration and navigation when the user needs to add or look for a new contact. This is also a good help when adding participants to a group call.
  • File-Sharing: During online classes, this feature helps teachers and students to exchange files for better communication regarding class materials or during exams. The option should come with good security features to assure privacy and confidentiality.
  • Desktop Sharing: This is a great option that helps the users to share their screens during the meetings or discussions. This helps them to bring more clarity of whatever they are discussing.
  • Notes: During online classes, students would like to take notes for later reference or teachers can ask them to do so. The note feature in the Zoom app is one among the good to have features for your new app.
  • Recording: This feature can be an added boost to have a record of the classes or discussions which can be used for later reference. However, you should also consider giving an option for storing these files that can either be on the device or on the cloud. Permission options also need to be set to avoid unauthorized access to these files.
  • Whiteboard: This is a good to have feature for an educational app that involves a classroom session by a teacher. This option can be used to give graphics to a teaching idea to make understanding better.
  • Filters or Icons: Even when the primary target is for a formal audience in the classroom or similar occasions, options to add funny filters or icons will attract more informal audiences also to your app thus increasing the user base.
  • Live Streaming: This can be a good addition for users looking to live stream video, audio or both to a specific group of people in real-time. For conveying something to a large audience flawlessly, this option can be a great boost.
  • Create Polls: The host of a discussion can utilize this option to collect responses or feedbacks related to a session from all other users. For a virtual classroom, teachers can create polls to test the understanding of students or to collect feedback of a new strategy and more.
  • Virtual Background: This option lets users to put an interesting background of their choice. Even when the option sounds useless at first, this is a great addition during online sessions when the actual background of the participant is messy.
  • Virtual Hand-raising: During a virtual classroom discussion, this option helps users to raise the hand to add a point or convey some concerns or ask a doubt before the host moves to the next point. This also avoids the possible problems when multiple users speak at once which interrupts the flow of the discussion.
  • Mute Participants: This feature allows the host to mute one or more participants during an ongoing discussion. This is useful to avoid unwanted interruption during a serious announcement or to avoid people speaking out of their turns that might affect the discussion flow.
  • Noise Cancellation: During the class sections, the people in the background may be talking or watching TV or small kids may be making noise. The noise cancellation option helps to resolve such issues and ensure a smooth conversation.
  • Number of Users: If you are going by the Zoom standards, they allow a maximum of 1000 users to participate in a meeting session whereas the webinars can include up to 10,000 people on view-only mode.
  • End-to-End Encryption: The security of the app should be given more importance and so include relevant protocols to ensure the privacy and confidentiality. An end to end encryption will protect any third party from reading the messages.

The Development Process

Now that you have an idea about the features to be included, let us have a look into the crucial steps involved in the development process.

1. Back-End Development

Setting up a server for the application is the basic but the most important thing to do. There are readily available solutions to choose from but going for a new one and building it from scratch can avoid the possible confusions and make the app error free.

2. Front-End Development

Followed by setting up of the server, the focus should be on developing a good user interface for the app. Users would love to have a simple and user friendly interface than an extensive one with complex options.

Final Thoughts

Zoom for the education app has set a benchmark in the educational apps arena as well as among the video conferencing apps. The fact that it is not just dedicated to virtual classrooms but for friends to keep in touch has extended its fan base.

Let us have a look at it

Steps Involved for Creating an App

If you are new into app creation, then the chances of getting confused about how to get it done with minimal errors is quite normal.

However, following a systematic and wise approach can help you accomplish it with minimal efforts.

Here let us have a look at some of the crucial steps involved in the process.

  • Sketch an interesting idea for your app
  • Perform enough market research and study regarding A to Z of similar apps
  • Do a reality check and generate mock-ups of your app

Choosing the Platform for App

However, your decision can have a considerable change in the overall expense of app creation.

If you decide to go for a single platform, considering iOS would be a great idea.

How much does it Cost to Create an learning  App like Byjus

More than just a basic e-learning app, Byjus have a lot more in the store that has grabbed the attention of millions of students, parents, and teachers.

These innovative and impressive features have made it an admirable and excellent choice.

With all these unique features and convenient options aimed at user experience, you cannot expect to get it done with a minimal budget. Let us have a quick look into the areas that impact the actual cost:

  • Software Design: A good design is vital if you aim for a better user interaction with the app for longer period. Even when an advanced design is expensive in the beginning, its tangible benefits will overcome it in the longer run.
  • Mobile Platform: As we have discussed earlier, if you are looking for a cheaper option, it is better to go for iOS platform. However, cross-platform apps can help the app to get more exposure and thus more revenue.
  • App Size: We have discussed regarding many important features necessary for an e-learning app, some being basic and some advanced. You can be choosy regarding the app size if there are budget constraints but a comprehensive app with outstanding features can really make a difference in the longer run.
  • Libraries and Software: The choice between use of open-source software components or paid resources and technology can reflect in cost of the app. A good e-learning mobile app development company can advise you regarding the same.
  • Mobile Wallet: If you aim to eliminate the payment problems and enrich the customer experience, it is good to consider a mobile wallet inclusion. But you may push it out from the list for an economic app development.
  • Post-Development Services: The updates, maintenance and marketing part after app development also contributes to the overall expense. Choosing an app development company that provides these services at affordable packages can be of great help.
  • App Developers: Finally, it is about whether you are planning to develop the app with your own team or outsourcing it. It is very common to outsource the job to experts to reap exceptional benefits with minimal efforts. In that case, their experience in the field, geographic location and expertise level can reflect on the expense. An Indian app developer would be a great choice as the charges can come as low as $25 to $50 per hour when compared to $80 to $250 per hour for Europe and US developers.

So it is a great choice to go for an Indian app development company if you wish to get the basic version of an app like Byjus at an average cost of $25000. However, if you plan for a cross-platform version, the price can go up to $35000.

Businesses looking to deliver courses or impart training can very well consider creating an app like Byjus to make a dream impact in the arena.

At a Glance

Technology has made appreciable impacts on all fields.  There are several revolutions and advancements developing in the education system.

Due to the advent of educational software, the teaching- learning process has been enhanced in terms of collaborative and systematic capacities. As we come across the apps available for this niche, there are a lot of products with varying specifications and purposes.

 “Edsys for Education” stands out from that crowd in a few ways.

First of all, it is a collection of top-notch educational solutions beneficial for educators. On the other hand, apps such as Byju’s provide a plethora of educational resources for students.

Though both are useful in their own ways, they are both different. Let’s see what makes “Edsys for Education “unique from other e-learning apps such as Byju’s.

A Random look through to the Features of Both;

No: Features Edsys for Education Byju’s
1 Student life cycle management
2 Educational resources
3 Online/ offline classes
4 Assessment Management
5 Attendance
6 Smart card solutions
7 School fee management
8 Assignment and Project Management
9 Subscriptions charges PAID PAID
10 Validity Lifelong Pay and Use

So What makes “Edsys for Education” unique?

It is understandable that Edsys for Education provides innumerable beneficial features for students and teachers alike.

While Byju’s provide a handful of educational resources and online classes for students; it lacks many other essential features.

So along with study materials, schools need “something more” to perform smartly!!!

Edsys for Education offers “Content Publishing Module”

Edsys for Education includes an exclusive feature, ‘Content Publishing Module’, where teachers can publish their own content, share question papers, booklets etc, thereby getting recognized for their expertise.

As teachers interact with students on a daily basis and are subject matter experts they can contribute more to content than others can. This module emphasizes to acknowledge teachers and seeks a way to pass the benefits to the first level that forms the core group of the education industry.

In fact, there are 1.6 million schools in India, having varying curriculum and different languages of communication, as Byju’s content approach is ‘one size-fit all ‘concept and it lacks the involvement of teachers on ground, contents cannot be useful to everyone alike.

How Teachers get involved in “Content Publishing Module”?

Not all students can digest the same type of content and study materials, so using this module; teachers can create and publish educational content as required to meet the requirements of students.

So, in a way, it gives exposure to teachers. Teachers can really do magic, they have got immense skills to groom students with their unique techniques.

They have got rich teaching experiences and ample knowledge with them.

Indeed, the world should stand up together and acknowledge teachers for what they have been doing all these years. 

This “Content Publishing Module” can really take learning to ‘NEXT LEVEL’. It is a collaborative platform with mutual benefits for teachers and students alike. All the published content reaches out to all students and can be used to impart knowledge.

Whereas in Bjyu’s, content is created by their content team, thereby lacks an opportunity for teachers to showcase their potential.

Thus, “Content Publishing Module” is designed by keeping teachers in forefront, a platform for teachers to exhibit their mastery and provides them monetarily benefits.

And this software possesses a set of amazing educational solutions essential for an educational institution.

One of the other striking aspects is- Byju’s subscription rate is comparatively high, depriving benefits of the app to some parents. And also, free trial is for the first 15 days, whereas Edsys for Education is free of cost.

How “Content Publishing Module” can contribute further in future?

As we all know, billions of dollars are invested to tap education market and a substantial amount goes in marketing.

This can be considered as an under estimation of teachers capabilities, as there are many respected and highly talented teachers whose efforts goes unnoticed only because they lack a platform to showcase their skills.

Education should come to a halt where marketing is no more needed, it is not a thing to be marketed; it needs empowerment and certain aspects like technology for ease of access to learning resources, ease of communication , non partial assessment , transparency , safety and security, reduce manual efforts and eliminate human error.

We should be able to identify talent from every corner and to give equal education for all. This process needs to be monitored at school level, at zone level (schools roll up to a zone), and at district level (many zones will roll up to districts).

Teachers should be given supreme authority in the field of education, and they are really in need of a platform to grow.

How are educators benefitted from Edsys for Education?

Byju’s Educational resources are very much useful for students and teachers, though it is not the only thing needed for an institution to run smoothly.

So, let us know what Edsys for Education can offer more to its users.

Features like assignment and assessment management system imparts a quality educational impression for students and teachers alike. They can do tasks in a synchronized way.

Student life cycle management aids to keep a track of student details from registration to alumni. This unified processed data can be referred whenever needed.

School fee management helps parents to pay their kid’s fee right from their seats and can worry no more about standing in long queues to pay school fee during their hustle-bustle schedules. 

Time table module untangles the challenging task of teachers at the beginning of every academic year to lay down an efficient time table for all classes.

Apart from these, command center, smart card solutions, e-learning modules are available to enhance learning and teaching processes.

A good morning routine for school is a great foundation to have a productive day ahead.

Good time management and proper planning is the key to follow a flawless morning routine and start off the day peacefully.

Being stressful in the morning is never going to help you as you end up getting ready late, forget some important stuff for school, eat less and be unproductive throughout the day.

Rushing to get ready makes you less attentive to small things around you and this will have negative after-effects for the day or even the following days.

Forming good habits is never easy as it requires a lot of patience. Even if you fail in the first few days, never give up but try hard to stick on to the plan and you will slowly start succeeding.

Here are a few of the best tips and hacks that can help you to develop a good morning routine for school.

1. Set Sleep Goals and Stick to It

Going to sleep early at night and waking up early in the morning makes your day more productive.

That is why it is important for school going students to set sleep goals. Having a proper good night’s sleep is really important to make you fresh for the next day.

So learn to finish your evening activities early and go to bed so that you get at least 8 hours of good sleep. Just like setting and developing sleep goals, sticking to it is the most important for a good morning routine.

  • Try not to use technology before bedtime
  • Set the mood for sleep
  • Stick to a regular sleeping schedule

2. Get Half-Ready the night before itself

Doing as many things as possible the night before will give you enough time in the morning to get ready and do the needful in a more relaxed manner.

  • Keep the bag ready with the necessary things that are required for the next day.
  • Have a look at the time table and see that you don’t miss out any necessary books
  • Have a look at the weather forecast for the next day and choose the outfits in advance
  • Keep the uniform properly ironed and polish the shoes
  • You may help parents to keep the breakfast and lunch for the next day ready in advance in possible cases. Preparing and keeping it refrigerated helps you to just warm it and use the next day almost instantly.

3. Make your Bed once you wake up

Make it a habit to make your bed once you wake up. This is always part of developing good disciplines in life. Moreover, making your bed will help you not to go back to sleep even if you are tempted.

But see that you take only a couple of minutes to arrange and keep the sheets, pillows, and blankets on the place.

This will also help you to get straight to bed when you are sleepy at night and avoid doing the arrangement when you are tired after the long day.

4. Prepare a Visually appealing Basic Routine Chart

In the case of kindergarten and preschool kids, it is not very easy to make them all ready for school on time with just some plain instructions.

Parents may set up a visually appealing basic routine chart that motivates kids to do their routine activities on their own without the need of pushing them for it every time.

You may also go for sticky notes in their bedroom, bathroom and living room that reminds them of what to do when to get ready on time.

5. Design a Simple Checklist

A customized basic morning routine chart can even be a great option to help high school students, as well. However, a comprehensive checklist can be a better choice for their age as they learn to do things on their own.

Also Read: Corporal Punishment in schools Definition and Consequences

Parents may help them to prepare a checklist for a systematic morning routine in the first place so that they don’t miss out on any important activities on the list.

But it is best to leave the rest to them so that they become more responsible and organized individuals.   

6. Create a Schedule Calendar

It is a very good option to have a schedule calendar for a family that hangs in the living room.

It can include separate columns for each of the kids in the family and maybe parents too. This will give a clear idea for parents on what all activities are happening on a particular day.

Each kid can be given a separate color on the calendar which makes it easy to identify their chart. Parents and kids can sit down together once a week to discuss past activities and give suggestions to improve their routines.

7. Always keep some Buffer Time

It is common for kids to plan the activities in such a way that there is no room for free time.

If any of the activities get delayed for whatever reasons, all of the following activities will get affected.

So it is always suggested to keep some buffer time for each activity so that everything can be managed well even if something gets delayed.

8. Keep Everything in the Same Place

Kids usually spend a lot of time in the morning to find out the items that are needed to get ready or the ones that are required for school.

Kids should develop a habit of being more systematic and organized in the way they keep their belongings.

Keeping everything including the bags, socks, shoes, water bottles, and coats in the same place after use saves a lot of time which is unnecessarily spent to find them.

9. Always Keep up a Positive Vibe at Home

Once you wake up in the morning, start the day fresh with an overall positive atmosphere at home.

It is good to give a morning smile to your family members and greet them. Make it a morning routine for school.

Besides, it would be a great idea to play some soothing music at home while you get ready.

Have a family playlist including everyone’s favorites. Parents can take initiative to exchange some positive words with kids, hug them and hold hands to show affection which means a lot to them.

10. Stay organized with Homework and School Supplies

It is important to stay systematic with the completion of homework before you head to school.

It is always better to complete the assignments before sleep the previous night. If you are leaving it for the morning,

be sure that you wake up early enough to complete it without any hurry.

Similarly, be ready with the school supplies and replace or refill it on time whenever needed to avoid last-minute worries.

If you are part of smart classrooms, see that the devices have full power and charge it to full the night before themselves.

11. Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Parents have to make sure that kids eat a healthy breakfast before they head to school.

Kids are usually in a hurry in the morning and tend to eat less during breakfast to save time.

This makes them less productive for the day. So sit with kids to talk on the importance of a healthy breakfast and persuade them to leave enough time in their morning routine for the same.

12. Create and Maintain a Morning Routine

It is important to have a regular morning routine for school and try to stick on to it.

You can start off the day by switching off the alarm, morning prayers and making the bed.

Then get into the bathroom to do the morning routines including brushing teeth and take shower.

Get dressed up and have a healthy breakfast, if possible with your family.

Have a look into the bag once more to see that everything is kept ready for the day.

Spend some time with your loved ones, pets and siblings.

Wear proper socks and shoes, close and lock the house door if you are the last one to go and start off the day to school peacefully.

13. Always Plan to Start Early from Home

It is always a good decision to start a little early than the normal time from home to school.

This will keep you more relaxed and energetic rather than rushing to get ready in the last minute.

Or else you will tend to start from home in a hurry and this will probably lower your confidence level as everything seems to be incompletely done.

If there is any traffic delay or some unexpected incidents, things can go even worse and you will be late for school. Starting off from home a little early can help you to reach on time even if there are some minor delays on the way.

14. Start off the day with Positive and Motivational Thinking

Starting the day with a good positive note has a lot to do with building self-esteem.

A good positive and motivating thinking can help kids to start off on the right track and stay optimistic.

Repeating positive affirmations like I am friendly, I am capable, I am strong, I can face my fears, My parents are proud of me, etc keeps kids more empowered, happier and go forward to face anything that comes their way.

Follow these tips and tricks and you will soon feel an overall change in the way you start off your day.

A good morning routine keeps you more energetic and awake for the day and the resultant good feel helps you to be more productive.

As the mornings are not rushed anymore, you will feel that there is a lot of time left which keeps you more relaxed.

The resultant positive vibe can pass on to the people around you and your days will be more happy and energetic.
