Educational Visit to a News Channel
“Taking education beyond the confines of the classroom”
A renowned educational reformer John Dewey opined “Give the pupil something to learn and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results”. Experiential learning is an integral part of learners’ quest for knowledge. It not only facilitates a multi-faceted understanding but stimulates the thinking and creative abilities of the young enthusiasts.
Catering to the ideals of holistic learning, a visit to the Hind TV News Channel, Surat, was organized for learners of Grades 6-10 on 21st July, 2022.
The visit focused around learning the technicalities and the functions taking place behind the scenes in the functioning of a TV channel. The students acquired knowledge about Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT). The various facts of transmission and reception were made clear to them.
The trip to Hind TV News Channel was really enlightening for the learners and the various departments of News Channel gave learners an insight of the reality that exist behind the scenes. The visit indeed was a fruitful one.
