Summer workshop - MS Dhoni- The untold story - A movie review

We are surrounded by information everywhere - TV, magazines, radio, the internet, word of mouth...everywhere. One such source of information is blogs and the way they have crept all over the internet has made the surfers and the browsers happy about all the different kind of information they can get access to and so easily too.



The kids at the summer workshop were given topics to write blogs about. What they came up with is not just amazing but informative too. Here's a sneak peek on their thoughts.

                                              MS Dhoni- The untold story - A movie review
Mahendra Singh Dhoni or MS Dhoni pronunciation, was born 7th July 1981 in Ranchi, Jharkhand. He first used to play football and he was a goalkeeper. Then the cricket coach of their school did not find a wicket-keeper for playing matches. So, he trained Dhoni to become a wicket-keeper as he did very good goalkeeping. He started working very hard on cricket and his progress also happened in his studies. After doing so much hard work, today he has become the most successful cricketer. In earlier months or even years, if he got out very early in a few matches, people criticized him. They were burning pictures of him in front of his father, mother and sister.

In 2011 world cup he was made captain of India. India went to the final and Dhoni played an outstanding knock of 92 not out of 63 balls. India had lifted the world cup trophy after 28 years. There was a very big party in the stadium as India had won the world cup and Sachin Tendulkar had retired at the age of 36. So Dhoni’s team became successful.

I also want to become a fast bowler when I grow up. It is my dream and I know that I will do it

Practical Experiments 
vs. 
BOOKISH KNOWLEDGE:

What will help students to understand subjects better ?

Rapid fire - would yourather curl up with a book, listen to music, or go for a run? Everyone has a different answer. Some people prefer to work hands on, with experiments. Others prefer to listen to the information, while some learn best from books. So why should schoolson only one type of learning? Theories and practicals are both equally important. Although practicals my be fun, you’ve gotta know the theory to do them well. On the other hand, theory on it’s own is boring. Practicals add some pop to the content! So according to me, the right combination of practical experiments and theoretical knowledge can give students (like me!) a complete understanding of the subject.

Practical Learning is More Practical

I strongly believe that us the students, children and the100% of the world’s future, will learn better if the schools and learning institutes conduct more practical experiments and use a little less of the boring context of the dry text books. Most children who have problems in science is because they are unable to understand the contents of the context in the text books. These children can be helped if the teacher would explain the concept with the help of practical experiments.
For example- a boy named Sam has problems in science is because he did not understand the experiment written in the text book, but he understood it when his teacher did a practical experiment, not only did he understood it but he also aced his next science exam.
I hope I have made my point clear to you wonderful people. This can be applicable for every subject and each student with the difficulty to understand the context of the text book. Let the text book not be the reason for the failure of the children who do not understand it. Practical experiments can teach what a textbook takes many pages to teach in a mere few minutes. Practical learning is more practical that a text book.

Social Media-Publicly Not Safe



I wanted to start by a question-Would you like to stand in front of the whole “Social Media-World” and tell everyone what you would text? No, you won’t. The reason is that you feel unsafe to even tell anyone your name as they are strangers. Did you think that people might do anything which you do not like, and which is not safe for your computer? Well, things that can happen are people can hack, cyber bully, blackmail, troll, and do other things. I reckon, that children below the age of 20 should strictly not be involved in social media. Social media is where everyone can see everything, including what you type. Be aware, be cautious, take action against any bad thing.

Should schools concentrate on practical work or textbooks ?



 This is my first blog, but this is not the only time I’ve talked online. My topic is whether schools should concentrate on textbooks or practical work?

Well, this a difficult topic since both sides have equal pros and cons.Textbooks are too heavy to tote around everywhere. Howewhere they teach us almost a third of what we know(Books and other stuff make up the rest). Textbooks are very important so they should not be cancelled out.  Whereas practical work is just as important as textbooks and keeps us healthy, you can’t do it the whole day as it would be too tiring. My point is that textbooks AND practical work are equally important and that schools should concentrate on both equally.

Schools To Go Or Not To Go

Most of us go or used to to schools right? Nowadays these new so called Online Classrooms are totally dominating the world(so to say).We go to school everyday because we know our friends will be there. We wake up every morning at 7so that we can meet our friends. I n a online school we cannot meet our friends physically and cannot enjoy the pleasures of playing on a ground with our friends. All activities in a school are done in a equal dose.
In a online class though we can only see the other kids face. We cannot play with them we cant talk openly with them and it is also kinda boring, but all people have different views to that.
In a online school we can sit on our bed an learn comfortably whereas in a actual school we do physical activity on the ground.We can also meet different kids from around the world.
Well now you know about both and it’s up to you or your child about where you want to go
