Interlinkages between Education and Technology

Introduction

While watching the movie Hichki today, at various occasions I found myself saying to those around me ‘you know this happened in my class as well’. This, I owe to my 6 months of internship experience in a government school and 4 years of critical exposure to the education system.

Learning from innovative pedagogical practices and learning strategies in ‘English as Second Language’ (ESL) Classrooms

“Are Effective people born or Made” – Whenever I have asked this question to people, most of the time I have got a mixed response.

Humans are visual creatures and we can easily learn things when we see it. This is why it is important for you as a teacher to innovate your teaching methods using the advantage of technology. In fact, you’ll see a lot of changes in the field of education in current times. Not to mention the use of smart boards, online learning and paperless schools.

What happens within the classroom has the power to change lives - for the better or for the worse. We ourselves know from our own school experiences of transactions which empowered or disabled or left us unmoved, according to the atmosphere in the classroom. This is not quite the same as the relationship between teacher and student, vital as that is.

I had been a school teacher for quite some time. Today I am not talking about those experiences, rather I wish to pen a different kind of teaching experience.

In school teaching-learning culture, it is assumed that a classroom is the learning platform for students only and teacher on the other end has a responsibility of educating them. But it is a mutual process in which both the student and teacher are in the same stream of learning. I experienced this during my classroom practice where I have got a different viewpoint. A classroom is fully meaningful if the teacher and students both are part of learning process so it is not only students but also the teacher.

I, Saud, have been teaching Mathematics to students of Classes 6, 7 and 8 in the Azim Premji School for the last five years. In each class there are three to four students with little interest in Mathematics. Two years back, there were three such - students in Class-6, and their behaviour with classmates and teachers too was not proper. Speaking loudly in class, using bad language and quarrelling was usual.
