The Prep School, a pre-primary section of Study Hall School celebrated its Annual Day on Thursday, the 30th November 2017 amidst great zest, vibrancy, and elation.
Dr. Urvashi Sahni, CEO of Study Hall Educational Foundation, other members of the organization grandparents and parents of the children were present during the event.
Mrs. Shashi Mehta, Principal, The Prep School welcomed the guests and shared the journey of how children prepared the performances on the theme “Dazzling Fantasy”. It was a fun-filled, enjoyable experience for the little ones, where they learned a great deal.
Through a delightful melange of drama, dance, songs and dialogues, 350 children of classes Nursery, Lower Prep and Upper Prep created magic on stage. They understood well and explained their parents too, the importance of listening to and reading the stories.
The theme for the cultural show was the importance of stories in a child’s life. Going hand in hand with technology the children must also be encouraged to read stories. The stories “ Crow and the Snake”, “Red Riding hood”, “Sheikh Chilly”, “Frog and the Prince” were beautifully presented on stage by the children in their new avatar. All the performances left the audience applauding.
The effort and time invested by the teachers and children were clearly visible in the delightful presentations by the children, their oozing confidence, and smiles. The Prep School family thanked one and all for being a part of the great show.
Prof. Glynda A. Hull from the University of California, Berkeley along with her team comprising John Scott, Jessica Adams, Devanshi Unadkat and Dhruv visited Study Hall Educational Foundation in connection with the ‘Write4Change: Online Global Writing Community for Youth Online’ research project which aims to learn about how educators and students create and participate in online writing communities and write for social change. The project also aims to know how visualizing data could help students think about their writing and themselves as writers in new ways.
The participants from Study Hall and Prerna schools were put into 4 groups and they were given access to 360 Virtual Reality camera equipment. The students were acclimatized to the use of the new technology. They confabulated about the social issues or themes to weave their stories around. Thereafter they captured the cityscape with their lens along with their escort teachers. Then they thought about the music, subtitles, narration and special effects to complement their visuals. The resultant videos were about the life of the underprivileged girls in Prerna school, the sights and sounds from the culture, history and cuisine of Lucknow, Women Empowerment and the Socio-cultural diversity of India.
The team from Berkeley was quite impressed with the final outcome and lauded their efforts. They congratulated them for their proactive participation and involvement in all stages of film-making. It was teamwork all through and the efforts shone in every aspect of the videos.
It was a mutually enriching interaction and the students of SHEF in particular Study Hall and Prerna learnt how to use the new technique and compared it with the existing 180-camera technology used currently by them. The use of multi-modal approach was a unique experience.
We hope that this ongoing project would provide access to new technology and an interface with global student communities to share, learn and grow together.
