There is always a false fear in the minds of people that computers can take up the jobs of people and render them unemployed. History will provide you with the evidence that reality is contrary to this. Technology and computers have proven to help people with their jobs, increase their efficiency but rarely replaced their jobs. It is the same logic that applies to computers and technology in education. A teacher has great responsibility to undertake and a very difficult task to perform and there is no possibility in the near future for a computer to be able to carry out tasks like inspiring a child to learn.
Uses of Information Technology (IT) in Education
Getting Feedback: Tests and examinations are an integral part of education. The purpose of the test is not only to evaluate the performance of a student. Tests also evaluate the performance of a teacher. Test scores will pick out the students that the teacher needs to give extra attention and investigate the reason for the under performance. Computers can make this easy.
Delivering Multimedia Content: Books seem to be the only source of knowledge to the school student. With the arrival of computers students can bid farewell to books as a tablet with internet connection can provide a student not only with text and graphical information, it can also provide video and audio information. This makes way for a rich and stimulating content instead of boring books.
The World at Your Finger Tips: With the internet available on mobile devices the information about the whole world is literally on our finger tips. Now you can browse and search the web with your finger tips on mobility devices. This technology has made life really easy. We still aren’t sure of how many different and interesting uses that can be found out using the mobility device and the internet.
In teacher education program, most of the universities have included ICT as a subject. Although there are no teaching courses online, but lot of material is available on the net.
Teachers need to gear up to handle this technology too. That is the reason why “Computers in Education” is a subject that is covered in B.Ed degree courses. If you are interested in getting a B.Ed from MDU fill in the B.Ed online form as soon as you can.
Education in India has been a big challenge for the government. While the British did leave India with a framework of education, it was mainly set up with a purpose of creating a workforce that map to the requirements of a colonial inhabitation. Over the years, the education policy of the government seems to have borne fruit. India took a huge leap and has become a major international source for the knowledge processing industry and information technology industry.
Growth of education levels at grass root level has not been able to meet its targets. Keeping this in view the 2015 Budget has some moves to accelerate the process of educating India. Let us check out them one by one.
- The expenditure on education has been budgeted to around Rs 69,000 crores. There has been a greater positive change in higher education than primary education. There has been a drop in the planned expenditure on mid-day meals at schools, perhaps to keep the expenditure in line with reality.
- Skill development has always been the mantra of India’s human resources development ministry. We are still keeping alive some trades like fitting and tool and die technology alive. This should be replaced with latest technology if we are to meet the ‘Make in India’ vision of the Prime Minister.
- While India provides a big part of the workforce in information technology, it is itself not on the list of top nations that use IT in education. We have recently taken steps to expand our infoway to places other than the metropolises. The budget has made provisions to introduce internet technology to education using MOOC. It envisages the use of tablets as a learning tool.
- Budget provides finance to upgrade and introduce some more key institutes like IITs, IIMs and Institutes catering to specialized technologies and studies aimed at widening the scope of professional services and trade in India.
Improvement in Education can not be achieved without the improvement in the quality of teachers. The budget envisages a huge requirement of teachers. Young Indians who are standing on the brink of leaving school and entering higher education should give a serious look at Bachelor of Education (B. Ed) Degree. B.Ed admission
2015 is under way. Students interested to study in Haryana should check out MDU B.Ed admission dates and schedules. A student may choose his B.Ed. college in gurgaon or any city of Haryana
India falls short in the field of education from the standards for a very long time. It is unbelievable that the standards haven’t been restored after so many years of independence. We are not top ranking nations when it comes to education or innovation in education. The British did set up a few Universities in India before quitting but the number of facilities served only the elite. A much larger infrastructure was needed in India to cover every one.
Over the period of 30 years since independence there has been a huge change in the number of educational institutions that have come up to provide one of the basic necessities for humans after food, water and shelter. If we are short of the target it is not because of a lack of finance or infrastructure. It is mainly because of the shortage of trained teachers. Getting human resources as trained teachers is difficult and going to get even more difficult as the supply never seems to meet the demand.
People who do not opt for professional courses generally end up with a graduate degree in arts or sciences. These degrees intrinsically do not prepare them for a vocation. Since these persons have spent years digging deep into the subject of their choice they do qualify to teach students at a lower level than themselves, say in schools. Assuming that we give these persons a job to teach children, the main problem that comes in front of every one concerned is that these may know their subject very well, they may no be in a position or capability to impart knowledge to someone like school students. That is why the bodies who oversee the business of education in India have come up with a two year course in Education leading to a B.Ed Degree. One can go for doing a B.Ed. course in delhi. India will need millions of teachers trained in imparting education. In case you are an aspiring teacher you can get your B.Ed from MDU Rohtak. MDU B.Ed’s have a long way to go.
