There has been news about teachers beating the children at school or scolding them badly. We who say that we have learnt from stric teachers can not favour the beatings today. It is not about child-rights or about human rights. I wish to ask, Do the Teachers beat kids because they know less of teaching (might be full of knowledge)? What approach a school should have about inculcating discipline and stopping Punitive Actions?
Being teachers, we all know the importance of National Education Policy.
For the first time, the Government of India is embarking on a time-bound grassroots consultative process, which will enable the Ministry of HRD to reach out to individuals across the country through over 2.75 lakh direct consultations while also taking input from citizens online. Kindly give your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Government of India embarked upon a mammoth project --National Mission on Education through ICT keeping in line with the NPE (92). It envisions ICT as a tool to overcome great hurdles in access of education and improvement in learning along with creating a strong Human Resource as the world moves towards knowledge based economies. According to this policy, there has been a massive overhaul in education sector for integrating ICT into education. Yet, in reality, it does not seem to have made a very large difference.
The run for materialistic competition is widespread. We all are in the race either silently or openly, but we are not out of the race. Even the so called Spiritual Gurus preach their philosophy in public where the audience are well to do. They are also in the race of collecting more audience before they arrive at the Holy Meeting Place.
Hope all are doing well.I am currently doing some research (on education in India) and in that, I am stuck around the question of "whether a K-10 school in India run without affiliation to any board (State board or IGSCE, CBSE, IB, etc.). The idea is to provide school with 'inbound' curriculum till 8th standard and then do affiliation with any board (for 9th and 10th standard, mainly to provide a valid exit certificate to student). We teach children our way till 8th standard. This is to develop a more dynamic and relative up-scaled courseware.
Hello Teachers of India.
I am Reuben from Brainwave magazine a children's science magazine (bwmag.in) and we are trying to get feedback from science teachers on how a child learns in school. We are building a web platform for children in the 5-8th grade to compliment what is being taught in school.
In my previous article (Textbooks – a key link in traditional teaching methodology), I shared my views on the critical role that Textbooks played in establishing connect among the Teachers, Students and Parents. The shift from "Textbook Only" teaching came with the introduction of Computers in schools. This led to the shift in the teaching methodology from Textbook/ Reference Books mode to Textbook ++ mode.
“Science is not a subject to be taught just through books”, teacher Narendra Sharma said. “If we provide opportunities to children to learn while doing, they are able to learn easily and do not have to take the path of rote-learning."
