Bengaluru, Oct 29: The department of public instruction has issued a circular which formally fixes the duration for live sessions of online classes. The timetable is based on the report of an expert committee. The circular also warns of disciplinary action against schools that flout the norms.

As reported, S Suresh Kumar, primary and secondary education minister, had announced last week that the government “will soon” implement the expert committee’s report that was submitted in July. The minister had also directed the commissioner of public instruction to issue a circular in this regard.

The circular, dated October 22, has instructed schools to follow a “judicious mix” of live and recorded sessions. Each live online session cannot extend beyond 30 minutes for students till grade 5 and 30-45 minutes for those till grade 10.

Pre-primary classes (3-6 years) can have one session daily thrice a week; grades 1-2 two sessions per day thrice a week; grades 3-5 two sessions daily five days a week; grades 6-8 three sessions daily for five days a week and grades 9-10 four classes daily five days a week. Classes have to be interactive. Presence of parents in the online session is mandatory till class 2.

For pre-primary to grade 2, the content mix has to be play, stories, rhymes and other innovative activities. In grades 3-5, the content has to be 25% curricular and rest co-curricular. In grades 6-8, both curricular and extracurricular should have equal weightage and in 9-10, there should be 75% curricular and 25% co-curricular.

The minister said action will be taken against schools violating these norms as per section 124 (5) of the Karnataka Education Act 1983. The circular states the government issued the circular following media reports that online classes are affecting children’s eyes.

Private schools had launched online classes after schools shut down in March following the nationwide lockdown. On June 15, the Karnataka government banned live online classes for classes LKG to Grade 5, but permitted recorded classes. It announced that an expert committee would be set up to fix modalities for grades 6 and above. On June 27, it issued another order with time restrictions for classes 6-10. A group of parents challenged the order in the high court, which stayed the June 15 and June 27 orders.

Mangaluru, Oct 22: The Centre for Advanced Research in Environmental Radioactivity (CARER) at Mangalore University has established a facility for Carbon-14 courting of archaeological artefacts or materials of biogenic origin primarily based on Liquid Scintillation Counting approach.

Carbon-14 courting is a technique for figuring out the age of an object containing natural materials by utilizing the properties of radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon. The methodology was developed within the late 1940s at the University of Chicago by Willard Libby, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for this work in 1960.

Measuring the quantity of Carbon-14 in a pattern from a useless plant or animal, equivalent to a bit of wooden or a fraction of bone, offers data that can be utilized to calculate when the animal or plant died, according to a release by the University on Thursday.

This facility has been established with financial assistance by the Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Department of Atomic Energy (DAE). Through an analysis challenge sanctioned and in collaboration with Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai, the CARER had undertaken a research for standardising the strategy for Carbon-14 measurements within the neighborhood of nuclear energy vegetation.

A staff of scientists led by N Karunakara, a professor and coordinator, CARER, in collaboration with BARC has standardised a batch methodology for the thermal combustion of the samples by tube furnace system for Carbon-14 measurements. The spin-off utility of this methodology is its utility for figuring out the age of the fabric as much as 30,000 years outdated, the discharge issued by Ok. Raju Mogaveera, Registrar (Administration), stated.

The CARER with state-of-the-art services has been established by the college as a nationwide facility. This is a complicated centre for radioecological and radiation safety analysis within the nation with collaborations with many superior laboratories of the world. The centre is serving the analysis wants of varied analysis teams from nationwide laboratories/establishments/universities.
