Hi, I am Pradip Kumar Basak, and assistant teacher of Sukantanagar Vidyanikatan. I have been teaching History for last 17 years. Frankly speaking, I am not a historian. I did my post graduation in History from Calcutta University in 1998 and P.G Diploma in Mass communication from Jadavpur University. In 2015 I completed my master’s degree in Environmental Studies. Besides academic fields I completed an in-depth course in multimedia, graphics and animation. I am also well trained in still photography and video photography. I started my career as a freelance journalist in Bengali newspaper and local television channel. I worked as a casual presenter in FM channel of All India Radio from 2000 to 2001 .In march 2001 I joined Satyabharati Vidyapith as an assistant teacher. I was associated with Expert Committee on School Education Department of Government of West Bengal for developing new text books from February 2013 to December 2014. I was also involved with in-service teachers training. As a sincere teacher and facilitator I have always believed in holistic or overall development of students. I never wanted to confine myself and my students only to the classroom, I love to teach in joyful and constructive environment and always give emphasis on skill development of students .As a teacher I already made some educational documentaries in Bengali, like partition of Bengal, Khudiram Bose, Bhagat Singh ,Revolt of 1857,Vidyasagar etc. I made (edited) a short educational animated documentary on primitive man. I made some interactive educational DVD and CD. Besides using modern technology and tools I also try to teach students with performing art like drama, music, dance and recitation. I try to integrate different art form and new technology with teaching and learning system. In January 2016 I started a new project named e-itihas.
