USHA RAMAKANT MHATRE Memorial lectures are arranged by VIDYA PRASARAK MANDAL with the help of funds donated by Mrs. Kusum Pramod Pendse.
I am very glad to report that a lecture in this series organised for teachers of VPM schools, on 13/12/08 at DSF Samaj Kalyan Kendra, was a success and was appreciated by one and all .
The speaker was Mrs. Minal Dixit, Principal, R. A. Poddar Marathi Primary school. Her topic was:
" Handling students of different learning abilities."
Mrs. Dixit has to her credit, 29 state level awards and 5 national awards in the field of education.
She presented her lecture in the form of a workshop consisting various activities and games.
Mrs. Dixit was very pleased with response of our teachers.
Novel ideas, force and request are three approaches to solving a problem, she said. She also emphasized the importance of 8 'C's - Culture, Control, Confidence, Concentration, Co-ordination, Communication, Courage and Cost-effective techniques. During the course of the workshop she touched upon various themes such as 'types of listening', touch-therapy, win-win situations, the power of dreaming, time management etc. Most importantly she stressed the need to change and to remain relevant to new vision.
