Online Learning : Best Practices

No educational calls less than 90 minutes with 1 break.
180 – 240 minutes with 2 – 3 breaks.
6 – 8 hours per day, with 5 – 6 breaks including a long lunch break.
After every 45 minutes children must allow to take a break.
Minimum one session per day pf physical training e.g Yoga, Dance etc.
Avoid Digital Modes of Home-Work.

Make sure children follow 20-20-20 rule & Blink their eyes frequently.
Encourage them to maintain good posture (back straight).
Encourage physical activities & movement in between classes.
Preferably, ask them to connect to bigger screens like a TV, Laptop, Desktop etc.
The screen should be kept 18-24 inches away from child (slightly lower than or at eye level).


How parents & teachers can help?

Use screen protectors/ matte films to reduce reflections& adjust brightness.
Don’t let them watch the screen in dim / very bright light (direct sunshine)
Don’t let them directly sit infront of an AC/ Fan, This can cause their eyes to dry up.
Ensure that their neck don’t bend extensively
Children who use spectacles, should wear them regularly.

At home, screen-free zones and time should be identified – dinner table, bedtime etc. Children follow what parents do, hence parents should follow self-abstinence. lubricating eye drops can be use for prolonged screen usage.
