QUALITY EDUCATION, EXPECTANCY AND CONSTRUCTIVE YOUTH PROGRESS

Mar-Apr,2016, Vol - 1/4, Page - 457/459

Schools today face huge challenges in educating all of the youngsters in their charge. In addition to on condition that youth with basic academic understanding, skills and promoting their quality development. The schools have increasingly been called upon to play a primary role in helping to solve a variety of social problems among youth. Although, historically, schools have always had responsibility for academic and quality development, the sheer number of areas to be addressed in the curriculum today may appear enormous. However, the situation may not be as dire as it seems. In the past some years, a growing body of theory and research in the area of character education suggests that a well-conceived and conducted character education program may be an effective means of addressing all of these seemingly disparate goals. The purpose of this paper is to summarize and produce this evidence.

TEACHERS’ UNDERSTANDING OF MULTICULTURALISM FOR POSITIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT: AN EXPLORATORY STUDY

Mar-Apr,2016, Vol - 1/4, Page - 471/474

 The aim of this study is explore the teachers’ understanding of their students’ social background, their ethnic diversity and cultural knowledge for providing positive learning impact in their multicultural classrooms. Multicultural education is a philosophical concept built on the ideals of freedom, justice, equality, equity, and human dignity as acknowledged in various Human Rights adopted by the United Nations. This study affirms the need to prepare students for their responsibilities in an interdependent world. The data was collected by taking unstructured interviews of the teachers. The primary findings shows interesting facts that if  teachers are made aware of cultural diversities they tend to take care of the feelings of various diverse  needs of  the students present  in their class . Though teachers are majorly not aware of various their teaching techniques, interaction, communication and authentic activities but were open to adapt and enhance their teaching strategies if they were provided to opportunity to learn to handle diversity in the classrooms. However the study concludes that in practical situation though the multi-cultural classroom provides an opportunity for students from different cultures to bring their enormous range of experiences, knowledge, perspectives and insights to the learning – if the process is enabled but it is  not always easy to do.

SUSTAINABLE MODELS FOR BETTER DESIGN OF FOUNDATION SYSTEMS

Mar-Apr,2016, Vol - 1/4, Page - 475/478

 Soil–structure interaction is an interdisciplinary field of endeavour which lies at the intersection of soil and structural mechanics; soil and structural dynamics; computational and numerical methods. Its origins trace back to the late 19th century, evolved and matured gradually in the ensuing decades and during the first half of the 20th century, and progressed rapidly in the second half stimulated mainly by the needs of the nuclear power and offshore industries, and simultaneously, by the debut of powerful computers and simulation tools such as finite elements. However, the actual behaviour of a concrete element resting over the soil media is very complicated and it shows a great variety of behaviour when subjected to different conditions because of heterogeneous nature of both concrete and soil. Various constitutive models have been proposed by several researchers to describe different aspects of concrete and soil behaviour in details. But none of these models is capable to completely describe the complex behaviour of this composite-system arsing out by construction of a concrete element over the soil media under all conditions. This paper attempts to present various constitutive models developed by researchers and could be helpful in developing an analytical model to describe the behaviour of foundation systems by considering the soil-structure interaction in a better way thereby, paving a way for formulation of sustainable design methodologies by reducing the embodied energy through a better design.

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS

Mar-Apr,2016, Vol - 1/4, Page - 453/456

 Society is undergoing so many changes every day. All the social changes have been taking place with the contribution given by the citizen. In a democratic nation where development of the abilities and skills of each person is considered a human right, it becomes the duty of the nation, society and schools that they should provide inclusive education for those children who are in need of it.  India, in process of becoming a developed country has to develop the entire citizen capable of contributing for the development of the nation. In each country there are many people who need special attentions from their childhood on ways. Indian Government had tried to enumerate the population who need special needs during the last census. It is found that 80% of these populations are school dropout and not given proper education from their childhood on ways. Here is the question why? They did not get an opportunity to continue their education or the atmosphere might not help them to continue it. There can be so many answers to this question.

NEW AGE PEDAGOGY: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUITIES FOR THE TEACHERS

Mar-Apr,2016, Vol - 1/4, Page - 489/497

 Pedagogy is a science and an art of teaching. It is changing with changing time. Teaching fraternity is always using different teaching – learning strategies. But in wake of current changes taking place in the world around, teacher will have to employ new and diversified methods and even combining two or three for attaining educational objectives.Constructivism is a learner-centered approach and emphasizes construction of knowledge by the students. It also requires creating interactive learning environment. This paper is about new age pedagogy which will facilitate in tapping the latest technologies to face the challenges of the dynamic world and forward some recommendations for shaping future classrooms.

 In the history of human development, woman has been as important as man. In fact, the status, employment and work performed by women in society is the indicator of a nation’s overall progress. Without the participation of women in national activities, the social, economical or political progress of a country will be stagnated

CONTINUOUS AND COMPREHENIVE EVALUATION: THE PRESENT SCENERIO

Mar-Apr,2016, Vol - 1/4, Page - 511/516

 Evaluation is widely acknowledged as a powerful means of improving the quality of education. The introduction of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is considered as one of the major steps taken in this regard to improve and strengthen the quality of learner evaluation. Today we are in a Global village, where world-class educated people take maximum material advantage. If we want to sustain the process of development in all its aspects and dimensions, we have to swim with the global current. For that we have to follow the footprints of highly developed educational system(s) of the world. That doesn’t mean we have to overthrow the existing educational system as a whole, instead we should incorporate the necessary changes in the existing system.

LEARNING DISABILITY: A CHALLENGE FOR SOCIETY

Mar-Apr,2016, Vol - 1/4, Page - 517/521

 Education is often thought to be one of the most important accomplishments in an individual’s life. It is often considered to be the means by which the person will be able to secure gainful employment and achieve success in life. Consequently, one’s education is a valuable tool. However, there are varying degrees by which individuals are able to learn. Not all children can learn with the same efficiency as other children. But research shows that these children who are poor learners may have some type of disability. In fact, these children are able to learn with the proper training and accommodations. These children are referred to as having learning disabilities. The purpose of this paper is to discuss learning disabilities as a challenge
