EDUCATIONAL APPROACHES IN E- LEARNING

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1157/1162

 In this paper we are delighted to be able to support E- learning as an effective tool of
learning. E- learning gives an opportunity to the learner to complete his/her
education/sessions easily and conveniently. It is a very flexible and self paced method of
education.
E-learning is a worldwide service and it motivates adults to learn. The urge to learn can be a
result of desire for recognition, self esteem, natural curiosity, enhance the self confidence and
the opportunity to self actualize which itself is a learning at its core. E- learning allows a
needful based learning. The paper presented throws light on the approaches used to deliver
E-learning. Also the technological support is an absolute necessity of e- learning. This paper
tries to explain the technology used for delivering these approaches.

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1163/1172

 The snail is economically important from ancient time and also harmful which serves as an
intermediate host of various trematod parasites, which causes severe diseases to human
being as well as domestic animals. The gastropod mollusc, Thiara lineata is a filter feeder at
secondary level of fresh water ecosystem. The reproductive potential, resistance, survival
abilities, feeding habits and most of the peculiarities are depending on the presence or
absence of the body fluids, proportions of organs and organ index in the body of animal.
Hence, it felt necessary to study alteration in the organ indices, reproductive index, shell
index and water percentage throughout pre-reproductive, reproductive and post-reproductive
period in the body of snail, T. lineata. The healthy, active and same sized mature adult
animals were considered for an experiment. Whole body and different parts of the body, viz.,
brain, gonad, hepatopancreas, accessory gland, foot, reproductive tract, visceral organs
(rest of the body) were estimated. The results were statistically analyzed and were found to be
significant.

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1173/1187

 Distortion of values is partially due to imbalance between ancient values and explosion of
knowledge in war field technology. Atomic weapons, bio-weapons, explosives, missiles etc.,
are threatening the whole man-kind. Developed countries possess all types of dreadful
modern weapons and trying to boss over developing and underdeveloped countries. Todays,
the entire mankind is living in the shade of fearful atmosphere. Man’s very existence is at
stake and hence he is indulging himself in all wicked activities. As value crisis is rampant in
our society, there is a need of value integration society. This could be possible only through
incorporation of values in education system which in turn directs value oriented teachers.
This is a study deals with the effect of academic achievement and creative development of the
progressive teachers on their attitude towards human values. It is found that creative
development and academic achievement have a positive effect on the attitude towards human
values.
Key Words: Values, Academic Achievement, Creative Development, Student Teachers.

OCCUPATIONAL MOBILITY AMONG THE SCHEDULED CASTES IN MAHARASHTRA

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1188/1202

 After 1960, Maharashtra Govt. has made an attempt to initiate multidimensional
(Educational, social and economical) policies in order to bring about radical changes in the
position of SCs. However, after 50 year of independence, the time has come to evaluate the
extent of which policies have been successful in eradicating the inequality in society. This
study is attempted to measure the impact of Reservation Policy, besides it, what are the major
responsible factors for bringing occupational mobility among the SCs. The leading caste as
an occupational mobility is concerned. After the religious conversion, the Buddhists people
threw their traditional attitudes, beliefs and customs. Therefore, their life style has undergone
changed. But various researchers have treated Buddhist as Mahar. In this research,
researcher found that, Govt. has treated SC as Buddhist. But Govt. has not given any
separate identity to them. Buddhists community is more aware about the educational and
occupational development and their rights than other communities in the schedule. Hence,
the development of the Buddhists could be treated as an ideal model for other Backward
Classes.

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1203/1215

 The present research is an attempt to study and analyse the early intervention practices and
to evaluate the effectiveness of these services on the different aspects of development of child
such as physical, social, emotional, cognition etc. The study was carried out with the
objectives to survey the existing community based early intervention services for pre-school
children in Chandigarh and to assess the quality of early intervention services of young
children in age group of 3-6years.13 Anganwari workers, 22 Nursery school teacher and 160
children between the age group 3-6 years were included for observation of early intervention
practices in the following areas of development i.e. physical, motor, cognitive, social,
emotional, language and self help skill. To collect the data for the study two tools were
prepared by investigator : Questionnaire on early intervention practices in Anganwadi
centres and Pre-primary schools; and Observation schedule of the child for early
intervention activities. It was encouraging that these services are doing a commendable job
regarding the physical and the mental development of children. Besides that, opportunities
are provided for the social development of the children as well. There are various activities
organised for the children. It helps children to become productive members of the society,
imbibe leadership qualities among children. Children coming to these centres learn
cooperative living, tolerance and social norms, they learn to behave and adjust with others.
So these centres are helping in the overall development of the children. No doubt the
programme has been quite effective but there are certain areas which need to be
strengthened. As observed by the investigator there is no financial help from the local
community, most of the Anganwadi centres are not getting funds regularly from the govt. due
which they are not able to organize health related programmes for children, so local
community can also contribute to make this programme effective.

THE ROLE OF MONETARY AND FISCAL POLICY IN INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT: INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 0/0

The purpose behind to construct the macroeconomic policies is to stabilize the fluctuation in
business cycle. Usually, fiscal and monetary policies in industrial countries have been
expansionary in response to weak domestic conditions.In spite of high prevalence of
vulnerable employment and working poverty in developing Asia, full employment is not a
legislated objective of any industrial countries. This paper presents a broad overview of
fiscal issues dealing with developing countries. We focus the factors which associated to
weak institutional framework that play a key role in explaining sub-optimal policy decisions
and weak integration to either domestic or international financial markets.In this paper we
investigate the multifaceted correlation between industrial development and economic
structure, by focusing on one of its trade implications, the effect of international
specialization patterns on export performances of countries.This analysis is stand on
secondary data which is based on industrial policy of India, ILO, Indian government-annual
industrial growth data and World Bank report. This study is favored by critical approach and
shows that the trade performances and their evolution over time can be explained by the
specialization pattern in the international distribution of economic activities as well as
 
macroeconomic aspects.
Key words: monetary policy, fiscal policy, industrial growth and economy.

IN-SERVICE TRAINING SPELLS ITS IMPACT ON CLASSROOM PRACTICES: OBSERVATION OF SOME SIGNIFICANT VARIABLES AT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LEVEL

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1264/1274


This research paper speaks about in-service training for teachers at elementary education
level with an objective to explore any Changes in Classroom Practices of Elementary Schools
as a result of such training. The classroom teaching processes were observed through a
Classroom Observation Schedule (researcher’s made) from 90 (ninety) classes of both
trained (56 classes) and un-trained (34 classes) teachers working in elementary schools. The
analysis was made through simple percentage calculation on the activities of the teachers
and critical ratios (CR) were calculated to find the significance of the difference between two
percentages obtained from classes of trained (56 classes) and un-trained (34 classes)
teachers. The results depict that in-service training has significant positive effects, in favour
of trained teachers, on dimensions of classroom practices: teachers’ response and treatment/
pupil-teacher interaction students’ attentiveness; activities during lesson / scope for
 
interaction among pupils; and student evaluation and textbook usage.

INTEGRATED CHILD DEVELOPMENT SERVICES (ICDS) in Jammu & Kashmir

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 0/0

Since Independence, the Government of India has launched a number of Central Schemes,
Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) and Community/Area Development Programmes in the
areas of health & family welfare, education, employment & poverty eradication, agriculture,
women & child development, sanitation, housing, safe drinking water, irrigation, transport,
tribal development, border area development, social welfare, etc. both in rural and urban
areas of the Country, including Jammu & Kashmir. The State of Jammu and Kashmir is
situated between 320 17\' N and 37° 6\' N latitude, and 73° 26\' E and 80° 30\' E longitude on
the northern extremity of India. It occupies a position of strategic importance with its borders
touching the neighboring countries of Afghanistan in the north-west, Pakistan in the west and
China and Tibet in the north-east. To its south lie Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, the two
other states of India. Female population of J&K State slashed down from 47.15% of the total
population in 2001 to 46.88% (prov.) in 2011. As per details from Census 2011, Jammu and
Kashmir has population of 1.25 Crore souls over the figure of 1.01 Crore in 2001 census.
Total population of Jammu and Kashmir as per 2011 census is 12,548,926 of which male and
female are 6,665,561 and 5,883,365 respectively indicating a reduced sex ratio of 883. The
corresponding figures of male and female as per Census 2001 were 5,360,926 and 4,782,774
respectively indicating sex ratio of 892. Finally the researcher concludes, all vacant positions
of the CDPOs and ACDPOs should be filled up at the earliest so that the scheme does not
suffer any more. This will help in proper planning, implementation, supervision and
monitoring of the scheme. All the departments must regularly coordinate and meet the
expectations from each other department. All vacant positions of the Supervisors should be
filled up at the earliest so that supervision and monitoring is strengthened both in the urban
and rural areas. The Panchayats should be made functional in areas where these are nonfunctional.
Further, Panchayats should be involved in planning, monitoring and supervision
 
of the AWCs.

PERCEPTIONS OF TEACHERS ON QUALITY ASSURANCE IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1320/1332

In the present study an attempt has been made to investigate the perceptions of teachers on
quality assurance in higher education. The sample consisted of 86 teachers selected randomly
from five colleges affiliated to Panjab University Chandigarh. Self made questionnaire
containing 25 items about teaching, research and extension was used to collect data. The results
show that for planning teaching strategies through interaction with students the teachers get
feedback about evaluation. Quality assurance architecture should be institution specific. The
curriculum should be monitored on regular basis. Results show that CAI helps the teacher in
providing quality education. There is need to check the degradation of quality and this can be
avoided if students have knowledge to choose their subjects. For making research projects a
success internal seminars are conducted. In these seminars the teachers are given knowledge
about various other topics related to their studies on which further research can be made. The
courses introduced should be such which provide both theoretical as well as practical knowledge
to students. Further it was found that 3 hours are not enough to check the knowledge of
students. Assessment methods should generate appropriate learning activities and provide
feedback to students. Students are given extension lectures and through this they get knowledge
 
about various topics. With the help of Right to Information the students having access to
information can become empowered in knowledge and technology driven economy.

Jimoh (2000) describes education as the totality of the experiences made available to individuals, in formal or informal situations to make them develop a rounded personality and to be useful to themselves and the society at large. And development of personality of the child’s depends on the adjustment with the environment. To help the pupil in making the changing environment is one of the important aims of education. Adjustment helps in having integrated and balanced personality. Considering the numerous advantages that are desirable from education, no amount of resources expended on it can be described as too much. Thus parents and guardians send their children and wards to secondary schools to acquire relevant educational skills, knowledge and good morals so as to be useful to themselves and society. Anameze (2001) noted that since education is regarded as an agent of nation development So factors that promote academic performance such as effective study habits should be encouraged among students.

A RESEARCH PAPERON“DESIGNING OF EHS POLICY

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1347/1350


E S POLICY EHS policy is "Environmental Health and Safety Policy". Environment: The
word „Environment‟ is most commonly used describing “natural environment”. In other
words, Environment is sum total of water, air & land inter-relationships amongthemselves &
also with the human being, other living organism & property.Health: According to WHO,
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental & social well-being & not merely the absence
of disease or infirmity”. Safety: Safety can be defined as “The condition of being protected
against physical, social, spiritual, emotional or other types of consequences of error,
accidents, harm or any other events which could be considered as non-desirable”. Policy:
Policy is generally defined as a “procedure or protocol developed & adopted to achieve
rational outcomes”. It can also be described as principle or rule. Policy can be considered
as a “Statement of Intent” or a “Commitment”. Thus, EHS Policy is any course of action
deliberately taken to manage human activities with aview to prevent, reduce, or mitigate
harmful effects on nature and natural resources, and ensuring that man-made changes to the
environment do not have harmful effects on humans. 1. EHS policy is applicable to all
sectors. Every industry or firm should have EHS policy, as it isa commitment of conserving
the environment. 2. Environments, Health & Safety are the 3 surrounding phases of an
individual. 3. Previously, the concept of Health & Safety existed, but with a view to
increasing effects of business processes on the environment, Environment entity was added to
„HS‟ forming „EHS‟.4. Employer employees the people in the organization. Thus, it is the
responsibility of the organization to look after the health & safety of the employees. 5. The
organization is not only responsible for employee\'s safety but also for maintaining the
balance of the environment. 6. Thus EHS policy is designed to carry out the functions of the
organization smoothly, by creating awareness among the employees.

STUDY OF THE STATUS OF INCLUSIVE EDUCATION IN GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1350/1365

 
 
 
The history of education of persons with disabilities is a progression from segregation to integration, and now to inclusion as explained in the unit-1 of this block. The education of the disabled children in India is more than hundred years old, but our services are far from adequate. The past two decades has witnessed the mushrooming of inclusive education programmes. Inclusive education addresses the need to provide education to children with any kind of impairment. General educators, with assistance from professionals in special education, assume primary responsibility for students with disabilities. But in India we could not admit even 10% of educable children in the normal community.Different models in the integration are practiced in the country and some were successful but there was not a single model of perfection. The model should be based as per the need of Indian Culture and Heritage.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY FOR INTEGRATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS AND EDUCATION

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1394/1403



One must have heard childhood anecdote that there was a magician who could bring anything in the world to a
piece of mirror, he held in this hand. This story has now become a true fact in the form of INTERNET.
This “Allauddin Chirag” can be used to ‘Save and Protect Environment’. Not only India but whole world is
echoing ‘kick out CO2 and protect environment’ on June 5, the ‘World Environment Day’. According to Dr. MS
Swaminathan, “New information and communication technologies offer the possibility of creating a level field
for both the rich and the poor, provided we know how to use them with a commitment to gender and social
equity”. This paper primarily discusses how Information Technology plays a vital role in integrating
environmental awareness and education; IT necessarily makes positive impact on community. Why do we need
security awareness programme? Why and how to design it? The answer to these queries lies in necessity of
motivation of people for ecological security- a prime motto and qualification, implementation of awareness and
training material suitably and efficacious transfer of information through application of apposite technologies.
We should introspect seriously on ecological security. Therefore everyone should invariably say “My promise to
environment, to protect ecological system of environment”. The process of awareness building should make the
best of every related component. The best formula for awareness is Information Technology tool +People
participations (ruler /tribal+ urban)+ NGO+ Government+ Management Support + Defined Roles + Budget +

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS AND ITS IMPACT ON WORKING OF THE COMPANY

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1404/1410

In today’s dynamic business environment, every organization wishes to be a successful
organization. Making an organisation successful cannot be possible without the involvement
and support of Human Resource (herein after referred to as HR). The HR is the most important
asset (man power) for any company and hence it is known as life blood of any organization. The
success of any organization depends upon the involvement, vision and performance of their HR.
For a question to find out the most important difference between ordinary organization and
successful organization, the only right answer would be their HR. Every organization wishes to
have quality people and to prove this greatest challenge of every organization that to recruit
competent , potential and right people in right place the HR is the only solution. As to run the
organisation rightly employee and employer both are important as they are the two sides of the
same coin and cannot operate without the desired services of the other likewise to run the
organisation in smooth way HR is required who can take care and protect the interest of both
the management as well as the employees .Depending upon the policies framed by HR
considering the factors like Industrial Relations, Employee Welfare, Employee Motivation,
Qualitative and Efficient production, Employee Satisfaction etc. the industrial environment
differs from organisation to organisation. HR is a process of treating employees as human
being, hence while framing any policy HR has to be very careful to prove the principles of
“Being Human” whereas Industrial Relations (herein after referred to as IR) is a “dynamic
socio-economic process”. It’s a field of relationship that exists because of the necessary
collaboration of men and women in the employment process of industry”.

RELIGION, FREEDOM AND NATION IN THE PHILOSOPHY OF SWAMI DAYANAND AND MAHATAMA GANDHI

Mar-Apr,2014, Vol - 2/11, Page - 1426/1434

 The present paper is an attempt to understand the concept of Nation, Freedom and Religion in the philosophy of Swami Dayanand. Swami Dayanand is considered as one of the most significant and seminal thinkers and reformers of 19th century India. Swami Dayanand had revolutionary ideas regarding nation, freedom and religion and contributed significantly to the reshaping of Indian society and its thinking. By establishing Arya Samaj, instilled among Indians the sense of superiority, understanding of a rich  cultural heritage and united them in one thread of nationalism. His message of going back to Vedas made Indians realize their deep cultural roots. His views significantly inspired later thinkers like Mahatma Gandhi who employed the spirit of nationalism awakened by Swami Dayanand in Indian freedom struggle. Gandhi’s views on religion, freedom  and nationalism were more or less like those of Swami Dayanand. Like Dayananda he too believed in and stood for swaraj that is self rule. Gandhi also was a nationalist but his nationalism was more inclusive, rather it can be called as internationalism.
