~ Survey conducted with upto 300
teachers across 9 cities led to Practically launching this platform with
curated experts to help address relevant and pressing issues towards emotional
and mental wellness
Mumbai, November 29,
2021: Practically, India’s first experiential learning app designed to make
learning immersive for students of classes 6-12, has launched ‘The Learning
Lobby,’ an initiative answering basic yet important questions that could be
playing on the minds of educators and parents. Practically has put together a
curated team of experts offering insights on navigating these situations. This
is one of the most comprehensive initiatives in the industry that starts off
with webinars on a fortnightly basis.
objective of this initiative is to ensure teachers and parents are able to
cultivate a healthy environment for themselves and their students by overcoming
challenges such as striking a work-life balance (for teachers), stress
management, and dealing with adolescence to begin with.
The initiative came to light after an
internal study was conducted by Practically to understand the challenges faced
by educators. The findings showcased that 78% of teachers believe that students
are facing the brunt of stress and boredom. 55% of educators are finding it
difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance as they have faced constant
fatigue. Over 70% of teachers believe that they need guidance to adapt better
to the current scenario and expert intervention will help them overcome their
current challenges. The Learning Lobby is a thoughtful response to the feedback
received from educators from across the country.
Commenting on the initiative, Ms.
Charu Noheria, Co-Founder & COO of Practically said,
“Practically has endeavoured to make learning a joyful experience. Our latest
initiative is aligned with this vision. With the launch of The Learning Lobby,
we further aim to develop an in-depth understanding of the ever-evolving needs
of students, parents, and educators. We will cover issues that impact them and
meticulously address them through our curated team of experts. Awareness
about emotional and mental well-being is still at a nascent stage in India,
especially in the education sector but this is the right time to table it
efficiently. The Learning Lobby will equip parents, teachers, and caregivers
with best practices to eventually enable a healthier environment for students.
The first session will have Dr.
Rati Chandna, Leadership transformation Coach addressing the
importance of work-life balance in the new normal on December 2nd, 5.30 pm
to 6.30 pm. The second session will be conducted by Ms. K. Helen,
Counselor on transitioning to adolescence and the third session will be
conducted by Mr. Faheem Sait, Training Consultant on Smart Time
Management tools for teachers.
Registration to the
webinar is free and will be hosted on Practically’s Youtube channel
“The Learning Lobby
is a brilliant initiative by Practically. Their dedication to the overall
well-being of teachers, parents, and students is extremely noteworthy. I believe
that a healthy work-life balance is a need of the hour especially for teachers.
The ever evolving education space can be demanding and it is essential to
follow best practices now more than ever. I am glad to be associated with
Practically and I look at this opportunity as a great platform to benefit
teachers and society in general,” commented Dr. Rati Chandna, Leadership transformation Coach.
initiative will have active participation from the industry with a Q&A
session with attendees from across the country. All sessions will be archived
