IT an absolute necessity
D. S. Cheema

Technological innovations using information technology (IT) can have major impact on any education system. An objective assessment of use of computers and related aids to promote the teaching-learning process demands a detailed study of factors that influence education in a particular culture. However, no one can deny the fact that interactive, networked and portable technologies, as against only the use of books, paper and pencil; have great potential to support the learning process.

Management guru Peter Drucker, who has an excellent track record of getting some “big things right”, once predicted, “IT will bring about demise of the university as currently constituted.” IT has indeed made some difference in quality of learning and teaching, but not as much, especially in the context of developing nations like ours, as the wise old man would have liked it. Only a small percentage of students, except those pursuing professional degrees, use computers/laptops, etc., for learning and still a very smaller percentage of teachers use IT as a professional tool. The question is: How can students and teachers use IT to their advantage?

Some educationists say technology necessarily improves the learning-teaching system and advocate that teachers would soon become redundant. Some others, who oppose this line, think that over-dependence on technology can be harmful for the education system. A more rational approach would be to give both technology and the teacher their due. Technology is a powerful tool and it can do a lot to improve the education system. However, the teacher can never be replaced by technology. Rather both can supplement and complement each other.

Technology can help improve the academic performance of students in many ways by developing their higher-order thinking and problem-solving ability. It can also increase a student’s desire to learn more and more by developing the “spirit of enquiry” as also improve the student’s motivation and general attitude towards life. The areas relevant to a student’s learning where IT can play a major role could be:

  • Technology can be directly used to support learning as required by the curriculum, e.g., solving problems in subjects like quantitative techniques, chemistry, physics and operations research and host of other similar subjects, where proof of theorems and solution of complex equations, etc., are involved.
  • All students are not equal in their background knowledge and learning abilities and as such sequential/linear learning may not suit every student. In such situations, a slow learner can get back, revise, rehearse and catch up, whereas a fast learner can hop and come back at his convenience.
  • IT provides an excellent means of collaboration between students and teachers as well as within the student community. Learning by multiplying information and knowledge and sharing has huge potential and good students have always been using this method to their advantage.
  • Students who wish to excel in particular subject can go far beyond the syllabus by using Internet to their advantage .If a student loves a particular field and wants to take it up as a profession at a later stage in his career, he does not have to be necessarily constrained by the limits of teaching in the classroom.
  • Use of computer, Internet, LCD projector, visual presenter and other such aids can promote teaching and learning. Students can support their classroom learning by use of such technology.

Perhaps, the most important aspect in all this is the attitude of management towards the use of technology in a particular institution. Most of the heads of institutions and teachers are shy of using a computer though many take pride in displaying it in their offices as showpieces. They are not able to make others learn new technology, as they are themselves ignorant of the use of many tools technology offers. In such a culture, it is difficult for the student to take advantage of IT to support their learning unless they adopt a pro-active approach. In terms of expenditure, appropriate technology is available at affordable costs. Funds should not remain a constraint, if the institution is genuinely interested in improving the teaching-learning process. Over a period of time, the use of technology in education can become a capital saving tool.

One of the major benefits of technology is that it makes a student employable when he moves out of the institution. If one is able to master the tools such as Word- Processor, Excel, Spreadsheets, CAD, website development, tally etc., one’s employment potential is much higher than any one without these skills. It is a well-established fact that in today’s world, multi-talent multi-skill employees are much sought after. Technology does not offer solutions to every problem, especially the social problems. A student can experience certain things only by operating in the environment he gets and it is up to the student, the teacher and the institution to ensure that a fine balance is maintained between the use of technology and a student’s social and moral growth.

A teacher can bring the best learning experience of the world to the students in the classroom and can become a true mentor to a great extent. Using technology, teachers can create a virtual classroom for the physically challenged students who cannot move out of their houses.

While making the best use of technology for teaching and learning, both the student and teacher must remember the limitations of technology. Computers cannot think, they can only process the program designed by some one. They will do well to remember what Goldman, Cole and Syer (1999) observed, “At its best, technology can facilitate deep exploration and integration of information, high-level thinking and profound engagement by allowing students to design, explore, experiment, access information, and model complex phenomena.”

The people have the right to choose schools

USING political rallies as a platform to raise a voice against the poor quality of education in government schools, a “My vote, My choice!” campaign is urging leaders to provide “education vouchers” to students, especially from marginalised communities, to enable them select a school of their choice.

The Centre for Civil Society that is running the campaign, said this would improve the overall quality of education that schools provide.

“When funds are not a limiting factor for a child to select his or her school, they will obviously opt for one which has a good infrastructure and strong teachers’ presence. This will instil a feeling of competitiveness amongst the schools to improve themselves in order to attract more students, thus raising the quality of education,” Baishali Bomjan of “My vote, My choice!” told IANS.

To prove its point, the NGO has been running a three-year pilot project in Delhi.

In a pilot project which we launched in 2007, we chose 408 students from across Delhi and gave them education vouchers of Rs 3,600 per annum to get admission in a budget school of their choice. Most parents decided to pull our their children from government schools and put them in private schools instead.

“After a year, we drew up an assessment report and saw that the overall learning capacity, the will to go to school and learn amongst the students had increased,” Bomjan said.

The campaigners are marking their presence felt in almost all major political rallies in order to get their message across to the leaders and policy makers.

“We are not saying that government schools should close down. But since these schools are not accountable to the parents, quality of education is always compromised with. We are already in talks with the Rajasthan government in this regard,” Bomjan said.

“Through this campaign, we are trying to say that if people have the right to choose their government, then why not a school? Educational reform is the need of the day,” she added. — IANS
