The pandemic has changed the learning game and several parents are concerned about the evasive grasp on their child’s learning with online lessons. Notwithstanding the lack of face-to-face interaction with teachers, parents are also concerned about their own competence and time commitment to teaching their children effectively.

This week, our guest at Chaiversations is Ritika Subhash. Ritika Subhash is the director of schools with Mangahigh – a UK based mathematics learning platform. She is a passionate proponent of the conscious use of technology to make the best kind of learning possible through the medium for children. She is also a children’s book author and a mother to a lovely 6-year-old boy!
