The regular pattern of education is not something which intrigues all children! They are often bored maintaining the same pattern and form. The parents send kids to school such that they gain knowledge, but often go in vain as the child looses interest. Especially, the education system in the rural areas of the sub-continent is thought to be more backward. Overruling this disheartening thought and belief, Kamalesh Zapadia, teacher from Rajkot has given teaching a complete new dress-up!
Kamalesh Zapadia, a 35 year old young man has taken up a remarkable method to reach out to his students. To inculcate interest and to make education more fascinating, this man travels for about 20 kilometres. He often suffers from lack of electricity supply in his house, but this did not deter him from visiting a far away cyber cafe. You might be wondering why? Kamalesh Zapadia has used the Kaun Banega Crorepati style to captivate the minds of the children. This has made studies much more fun and exciting. Students can learn in quiz format and simply can prevent mugging up from the text books and notes. Kamalesh with the assistance of his colleague has also inaugurated a website called www.edusafar.com which holds the complete syllabus in KBC style. IIM Ahmedabad, has also appreciated this new strategy to overcome the stress of education. This learn and fun technique has also gained a world-wide applause.
On 5th February, 2014 Kamalesh was felicitated along with 100 other teachers by Gujarat Innovative Education Council and Gujarat Council of Education, Research and Training for his amazing idea of imparting education. Zapadia claims that quizzing in itself is really thrilling. This mode of teaching will add thrill to education and the children can learn more swiftly. He also says, since most of the schools have provision of computers they can utilise his form by simply downloading from the website. District Institute of Education and Training thinks of applying this technique to more than 1420 schools under them.
