Professionalism among the Pupil Teachers: A six-sigma Approach in Teacher Education

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 544/557

 Education is a process of acquiring and being able to apply knowledge. It also refers to the process of learning. It is very contextual and qualitative in nature. Today, in the technologically advanced scenario, quality education is the paramount need of every nation. It is the responsibility of teachers to provide opportunities, nurture capabilities and maximize learning for quality output. They should acquire professionalism. Possessing professionalism through experiences during service period is very risky, time consuming and might not be successful while, inculcating these skills during pre service training could be promising and quality oriented.
As training is entirely different from teaching, it is the molding up of personality according to the desired or required skills for that particular job world, it must inculcate professionalism among the trainers. It is thus inevitable to make teachers understand the requirements of the teaching profession. Therefore, an attempt was taken to design an innovative assessment process for the performance of pupil teachers. This design is based on six sigma approach used for quality management. The project was conducted in a Self Financed Teachers Education Institute, Yamunanagar. It was carried on 56 pupil teachers studying in the institute. Mixed type of approach was used for data collection. The result shows very promising achievements. The work recommends six sigma approaches in education sector for quality output.

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2044/2053

Front flip (forward tuck somersault) is one of the fundamental skills taught in the early stage in the competitive Gymnastics career of a Gymnast. The purpose of this study was to investigate kinematic comparison of two different techniques (Russian technique V/s Japanese techniques) of front flip tuck on floor in men’s artistic gymnastics. A total of five (n = 5) best male gymnasts of 18 to 23 years old from L.N.I.P.E., Gwalior (M.P.); who had mastery on both the techniques were selected for the present study as subjects. To acquire kinematical data, a digital Nikon D-3100 video recording camera with a frame rate of 30 frames per second, were used during the execution by placing it left side of the subjects(gymnasts) and perpendicular to the sagittal plane. From the video, the photograph of selected three phases (i.e. take off phase, flight phase and landing phase) were obtained by using snipping tool software. The digitization of the photographic sequence of selected phases was done with the help of kinovea software and the selected angular kinematic variables were obtained at take off phase, flight phase and landing phase. The centre of gravity of required phases was located by using segmentation method (Hey, 1993). The paired t-test was used for the kinematic comparison of both the techniques of front flip tuck at each phase. The level of significance

THE IMPORTANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS IN AIR POLLUTION AMONG COLLEGE STUDENT: A SOCIOECONOMIC ISSUE

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2062/2077

Air pollution-smoke and other airborne particles-has accompanied the growth of industrialization since its early days. However, in the last two decades overwhelming evidence has begun to accumulate that polluted air is a serious threat to the quality of life, even to man\'s continued existence itself; projections of economic growth and population expansion to the year 2000 pose the threat of a vast increase in the already high level of air pollution unless effective measures are taken to control it. It is in recognition of both the present and potential costs to society that increased importance has been given to the devising of means to detect, control and abate air pollution. It is also becoming clear that because of the damage to life and property, expenditures on air pollution control and abatement are as essential to society, if not to individual polluters, as investment in education, urban renewal, and other investment in social capital.The present study was aims to investigate the concept of environmental awareness in air pollution of under graduate college students of Purulia District. Concept and attitude of environment awareness in air pollution measure by questionnaire was used to assess their environment awareness. The data were analyzed with the help of statistical techniques like mean, Standard deviation and t-value. The result of Analysis shows that, there exists significant difference in air pollution awareness among college student. Science students are more aware than commerce and arts students in air pollution.
Key Words: Environmental Awareness, air pollution, Environmental Education, Statistical treatment, significant difference.

NEW HORIZON AND VISION OF TEACHER EDUCATION

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2078/2085

It is obvious that in the world scenario the teacher education had varied beginnings as to their thinking and imagination. Its development has been promoted according to their socio-cultural and political set ups. Teacher education in every country is neglected due to ignorance. There are several pitfalls in this field. In spite of all these, it is true that teacher education in India is progressing as compare to other countries in the world. But it is said that “If we educate a boy, we educate one individual, if we educate one girl, we educate the whole family and if we educate one teacher, we educate the whole community.’’
It is said that, teacher is a ‘friend, philosopher and guide’ or ‘facilitator and manager’. If we introspect ourselves some questions raise: Does the teacher education institution provide this opportunity? Do we want really some changes in teacher education? Are we happy with present conditions of teacher education? Do we think about it? If yes, then how much time we think! Do we take accountability in our work? Do we have sincerity? Is there any synchronization of our words and deeds? Is there any hidden agenda? Do we look transparency in work? Do we love our profession? Are we open to every situation? Do we have excellence in our life? Do we have a good work culture? Do we have a positive attitude? Do we enjoy our profession?
Certainly, the answer is No. Then, how do we want Excellency in teacher education! Opening more teacher education institutions for the sake of accessibility only will not sufficient. Along with this development of quality administration, quality management, quality curriculum, quality faculty, quality environment etc. are needed

EMERGING TECHNOLOGY IN REDEFINING THE ROLE OF TEACHERS

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2108/2115

 The advent of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has brought out many paradigm shifts in the Teaching-learning process. But the approach taken by many teachers in universities today is simply a result of the way they were taught. Typically university education has been a place to learn theoretical knowledge devoid of context. The roles which are expected to be played by teachers are The Process Facilitator, The Advisor-Counselor, The Assessor, The Researcher, The Manager-Administrator, The Designer, The Technologist And The Content Facilitator. Teachers should promote active learning thus Numerous instructional strategies may be considered when implementing the principles of active learning and these are Anchored Instruction, Collaborative learning, Problem-based learning, Cognitive apprenticeships and Case-based instruction. The university teacher can no longer confine his attention to his own private study and to the narrow world of his own student. With the new conception of the wider duties and responsibilities, the duties and responsibilities of university teacher have also expanded.

RACISM AND QUEST FOR AN IDENTITY AS DEPICTED IN TONI MORRISON’S SONG OF SOLOMON

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2140/2145

Since the days of the Civil War (1861-1865) Afro-Americans came on the forefront of American literary scene. Many Northern American writers had tried to present the suppressed and meaningless life of Afro-Americans in their writings. But they are not able to capture the psyche of Afro-American community. Even after hundred years of Civil War illegal practices like lynching, castration, and racial discrimination were going on. In the decade of 1960, Afro-Americans had united themselves and fought vigorously for their rights. They won their battle and in this win the Afro-American writers have played a crucial role. They make their suffering visible in front of their readers. Dense in style, Afro-American writings used many allusions, their own past history and myths. This paper tries to explore how Toni Morrison has presented the grotesque system of racism in her novel Song of Solomon. In this paper I have also tried to present how Morrison has presented Afro-Americans quest for identity to counter argue racism in Song of Solomon.

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2174/2181

Due to inefficiencies of the financial sector and the economic policies in India faced severe foreign crisis in 1991. To overcome the crisis, the then government of India opted for liberlisation and privatization. The financial sector reforms were introduced in the year 1991. The financial sector reforms brought in a significant growth for the Indian economy and the financial sector showed a significant improvement in the performance. As a result of implementation of various prudential norms related to provisioning requirements, income recognition assets classification and capital adequacy of banking institutions, the financial institutions became more safe, strong and profitable. However, over the last couple of years, the Indian financial system has started experiencing some challenges. These include mounting Non Performing Assets of banks, lack of liquidity, multiplicity of regulations and lack of proper service quality.

NATURE AND COMPLEXITY ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES OF SURROUNDING SITUATION IN PERVASIVE COMPUTING DEVICES: A REVIEW

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2182/2185

 Pervasive systems must offer an open, extensible, and evolving portfolio of services which integrate sensor data from a diverse range of sources. The core challenge is to provide appropriate and consistent adaptive behaviors for these services in the face of huge volumes of sensor data exhibiting varying degrees of precision, accuracy and dynamism. Situation identification is an enabling technology that resolves noisy sensor data and abstracts it into higher-level forms that are interesting to applications. This paper provide a comprehensive analysis of the nature and characteristics of situations, discuss the complexities of situation identification, and review the techniques that are most popularly used in modeling and inferring situations from sensor data. We compare and contrast these techniques, and conclude by identifying some of the open research opportunities in the area.

RURAL MARKETING OF FMCG COMPANIES IN INDIA- SOCIAL CHANGES AND THE GROWTH OF INDIAN RURAL MARKET

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2196/2209

\"\"\"\"The Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector is a corner stone of the Indian economy. This sector touches every aspect of human life. The FMCG producers now realize that there is a lot of opportunity for them to enter into the rural market. The sector is excited about the rural population whose incomes are rising and the lifestyles are changing. There are as many middle income households in the rural areas as there are in the urban. Thus the rural marketing has been growing steadily over the years andnow is bigger than the urban market for FMCGs. Globally, the FMCG sector has been successful in selling products to the lower and middle income groups and the same is true in India. Over 70% of sales are made to middle class households today and over 50% of the middle class is in rural India. The sector is excited about burgeoning rural population whose incomes are rising and which is willing to spend on goods designed to improve lifestyle. Also with a near saturation and cut throat competition in urban India, many producers of FMCGs are driven to chalk out bold new strategies for targeting the rural consumers in a big way. But the rural penetration rates are low. This presents a tremendous opportunity for makers of branded products who can convert consumers to buy branded products. Many companies including MNCs and regional players started developing marketing strategies to lure untapped market. While developing the strategies, the marketers need to treat the rural consumers differently from their counterparts in urban because they are economically, socially and psycho-graphically different to each other.This  paper covers the attractions for the  FMCG marketers to go to the rural, the challenges,the difference between the rural and the urban market  and the suitable marketing strategy with the  suitable example of companies and their experience in going rural.

SECURITY AND PRIVACY ISSUES ON SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES: AN ANALYSIS ON ATTACKING SCENARIOS

Feb-Mar,2015, Vol - 2/8, Page - 2240/2252

 Protecting personal information’s privacy has become a controversial issue & liability among online social network providers and users. Most social network providers have developed several techniques to decrease threats and risks to the users’ privacy. These risks include the misuse of personal information which may lead to illegal acts such as identity theft, predators, stalking, online victimization, and fraud. To give few examples, in May 2015 Russian hackersemployed malware to target a number of banks worldwide stealing upwards of $900 million in one year alone. Russian hackers also developed iOS7 malware designed to access user’s personal data. This study aims to measure the awareness of users on protecting their personal information privacy, as well as the suitability of the privacy systems which they use to controlprivacy settings. Survey results show high penetration and high percentage of the use of smart phones for dataservices but the current privacy settings for online social networks need to be improved to support different type of mobile phones. Because most users use their mobile phones for Internet services, specific privacy settings that are compatible with mobile phones need to be developed. The method of selecting privacy settings should also be simplified to provide users with a clear picture of the data that will be shared with others. Results of this study can be used to develop a new privacy system which will help users control their personal information easily from different devices, including mobile Internet devices and computers.
