The Karnataka government has announced the schedule of online learning for students of all classes during the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.
The government had earlier banned online learning for students of classes up to 5, citing expert advice on the harms of exposing young children to prolonged screen time. It has, however, allowed the classes for limited hours until an expert committee submits its report on the matter, according to media reports.
Here’s the schedule of online classes:
1) LKG and UKG: 30 minutes a week
2) Classes 1-5: 30-45 minutes (in two sessions) every two days
3) Classes 6-8: 30-45 minutes (two sessions a day) five days a week
4) Classes 9-10: 30-45 minutes (four sessions a day) five days a week
