Blending ICT in Teacher Education

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 In this paper a humble effort has been made to emphasize the importance
of ICTs in teacher education programmes especially for Indian context.
Former Hon’ble President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam once said “ If a
country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I
strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a
difference. They are the Father, The Mother and the Teacher.” This great
opinion significantly justifies the importance of a teacher in any
educational system.

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 The whole identity of the preservice teacher as a budding teacher depends
on his/her attitude towards teaching profession. Teachers’ attitudes are
important because they would determine the course of action the
preservice teacher would take in her teaching journey. This study explores
pre-service teachers’ motivation for entering teaching profession and their
attitude towards teaching profession. A total of 38 pre-service teachers
completed a two-part questionnaire exploring their motivations for
becoming teachers & their attitude towards teaching profession. The study
reveals that most of the respondents have taken up teaching because they
enjoy interacting with children and are keen to be humanistic in their
teacher-taught interactions, then it is to be taken into account that why
teachers don’t continue to mirror similar attitudes and what action plan
can be taken to create passionate & committed teachers. The final part
discusses the implications for the continual enhancement of teacher
education programmes to build Effective, Affective and Reflective
Teachers’ for tomorrow’s learners.

Inclusive Education and Teacher Education

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 Children in special schools were seen as geographically and socially segregated
from their peers, and the initial movement to locationally integrate these students
in mainstream schools (‘integration’) shifted to one where the whole school was
encouraged to become more adaptable and inclusive in its day-to-day educational
practices for all students (‘inclusive education’). Pedagogy in particular was
highlighted as the key to meeting all students’ educational needs by making the
curriculum flexible, and so more accessible. teaching methods which can make
curriculum accessible to children with disabilities can also make learning
accessible to all students (Ainscow, 2005; Ainscow, 1991), a teacher or school
principal is well on the way to improving the overall quality of their school.

Challenges in Teacher Education through Distance Mode

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 The Government have set up a number of distance education institutions to make
access to higher education to a large number of both aspiring students and teachers.
Undoubtedly, Distance Education has today emerged as a very significant tool in
providing education. This method has evolved over the years to reach a much wider
group of students and community to include them in the generation of information
power. Knowledge, today, can be provided in so many ways and Distance Education
fits in very well to cater to this increasing need which is across the nation. Information
Technology has enhanced the power of this mode of education and has over a period
of time to fill the gap between the "distance" that exists between students and
teachers.
Distance education has also undergone a tremendous change – paper, pen toe-mode.
This paper attempts to bring out why these types of institutions are imperative if the
country has to achieve the desired Gross Enrolment and to deal with shortage of
qualified teachers and a strong discrimination against students and teachers graduating
from such mode of education and their recruitment. So the challenge is how to resolve
the issues without diluting quality of education.

 Success of Inclusive Education depends on various factors, of which
teacher is the most important factor. For becoming a competent and
successful Inclusive teacher, it is necessary to have required knowledge,
skills, democratic attitude, positive attitude and an attitude of collaboration
and networking.
The present study examined knowledge and attitude of school teachers in
urban and rural Pune about school teachers. 300 school teachers were
selected from various schools from urban and rural Pune, Maharashtra.
The tools used are Attitude scale for inclusion and knowledge test on
Inclusion.
The results indicate overall positive attitude ofschool teachers towards
inclusive education and the knowledge level of school teachers about
inclusive education are significantly low. Their concept of inclusive
education is unclear. They are not clear about Government policies and
planning, how to identify different abilities in children, and what remedial
treatment can be given to them.

Challenges before Teachers in the era of Globalization

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 The age of globalization has brought in a sea change in the field of education. It has brought new
challenges before the teachers, students and society. Today foreign universities are eager to
collaborate with the Indian universities. The number of qualified teachers is less as compared to
students. Another issue is of the use of ICT in teaching and learning. Even the criterion of
qualifying teachers is a matter of debate. Teachers need to motivate students for research
oriented study. The quality of research needs to be under examination. The higher education
needs to put in efforts to reach upto the mark in the world of competition. The challenges are to
be met with a joint effort on the part of the government, students and teachers which will result
in a pleasant picture of the society and consequently the nation itself.

Managing Constructive Learning through ICT Empowered Teaching

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 The learners can build knowledge actively through the
interactions with environmental stimuli. Constructive learning
incorporates a learning process wherein the learner gains his own
conclusions through the creative aid of the teacher as a facilitator. The
teacher must ask open-ended questions and leaving time to allow the
students to think and analyze a response, based on their experiences and
personal inquiry. Open-ended questions and critical thinking encourage
students to seek more than just a simple response or basic facts and
incorporate the justification and defense of their organized thoughts. This
leads to challenging other hypotheses, defending their own, and
supporting real-world situations with abstract supporting data.

 Under its “SarvaShikshaAbhiyan (SSA) policy”, the Government of India, Ministry of Human
Resource Development (MHRD) has been endeavoring to provide Basic Education to all
children, youth and adults in the country. There has been a lot of educational research and
experimentation just to provide best of the education to the children throughout the world in
second half of the twentieth century.The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) has
launched the Open Basic Education (OBE) Programme, as an alternative educational
programme, equivalent to the Elementary Education Programme of the formal education
system.The OBE Programme explores and makes use of the potentialities of Distance Education
Mode (DEM) for reaching the unreached. The Foundation Course of NIOS has been subsumed
into the Open Basic Education (OBE) Programme. OBE Programme provides an elementary
education at three levels, for school drop-outs and neo-literates, out of school learners (e.g.homeschoolers)
through Accredited Agencies. There are many new policies and practices are being
practiced to overcome the present problems. But still there are many questions are remaining
unanswered and thus giving new approaches to the educational research. Thus to overcome the
problems related to three areas - Dropout prevention, special education and At-risk youth the
alternative methods to traditional education system aroused. The alternative education could be
given within or outside the Public School System. In Modern time the alternative education is
considered to be the nontraditional education system which includes charter schools, alternative
schools, independent schools, and home-based learning which often emphasize the value of
small class size, close relationships between students and teachers, and a sense of community.

Quality concerns of teacher training through distance mode

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 There are two modes of Teacher Training that are organized for preparing
teachers. One of them is the conventional teacher education and the other is
the distance education program. Distance education or distance teaching has
emerged as a very useful mode of facilitating education to learners in every
field since its conception. It had begun in a very humble way as
correspondence education in traditional institutions and used only print as
medium of instruction but very soon evolved into independent, autonomous
organisations as Open Universities offering open education through
multimedia instruction. For teacher education too it has evolved into an
alternative and almost parallel means of education today. Today a professional
degree in education for a teacher has become mandatory and due to the lack of
enough trained teachers schools and colleges are compelled to recruit
untrained graduates. Thus in an attempt to find solution to many such
questions we have no second opinion today that distance education is the need
of the hour. The question however arises that looking at the nature of contact
sessions in a distance mode how do we ensure quality of the teachers who get
their degree through the distance mode until and unless they are selfmotivated.

Learning Experiences in School Based Subject

-,2012, Vol - /, Page - 0/0

 Learning is continuous & lifelong process. To modify or to change or to innovate the behavior,
the learning experiences are essential. The goal of education is all round development of the
child .To achieve this goal; learning is most important process. Learning leads to positive change
in behavior. Learning occurs when child has an experience. The better understanding, acquiring
knowledge, abilities, skills & attitude are essential things in the process of learning. In traditional
school environment, majority teachers give factual information about every subject. Only
imparting such information does not lead to understanding of particular topic in any subject.
Learning experiences can be classified as direct & indirect experiences. Direct experiences refer
to learning activity, which involves firsthand experience, while indirect experience doesn’t
include firsthand experience. In practical learning situations, there is always a combination of
both the experiences.

 The Emotional skills assessment process and emotional learning system provide
an assessment and learning process to help teachers develop a plan of action to
learn and apply emotional intelligence skills. Teachers who intentionally develop
emotional skills and model emotionally intelligent behavior on a daily basis
experience more success and satisfaction in their professional career and life.
Emotionally intelligent teachers are more resilient and proactive in responding to
stressors and less likely to react to stress. Teachers who model emotional
intelligence are characterized by: intentional reflective (not reactive) behavior,
more flexible (not resistant to change), assertive communication (not aggressive
or passive), more optimistic and hopeful (not pessimistic and negative), and relies
on skills and positive habits (not reactive habits) and such transformation in
teacher’s personality is possible only through teacher education programs and
policies.

 Role of teacher training in the process of educational innovation and the implementation
of ICT is very important. The teacher training institutes are providing the teachers of the
future and teachers are the key figures in arranging learning processes. Researcher
gathered additional information on the role of the teacher by visiting schools where ICT
is already being used ‘extensively’. Information on organizational level was gathered and
interviews were conducted with teachers. These interviews were aimed at the teacher’s
tasks, roles and required competences to fulfill these tasks and roles properly. In addition,
literature on job profiles of teachers and implementation literature was studied. The
research shows that the implementation of ICT cannot be realized by blueprints. Schools
and teachers should learn and should be able to design their own educational situation,
possibly choosing from the varied potential ICT has to offer.

systems. It is a pertinent expectation that the teacher education institutions exhibit vibrancy
adequate for responding to theemerging paradigms of school education and the teacher roles
thereof. It is thus necessary that quality concern is explicit in every aspect of teacher
education programmes. But today all the universities want to privatise teacher education
programme without any quality control. As of today teacher training is one such professional
qualification quality, relevance and efficiency of which is under severe criticism. Although
the bodies like NCTE and NAAC are constantly striving not to dilute the standards of teacher
education programme, still the mushrooming growth of the teacher training colleges raise
eyebrows regarding the quality of the profession.The framework for this study includes study
and comparison of quality concerns for teacher education institutions in the light of NCTE

Therefore, it is expected to engage itself in all endeavors of social and national reconstruction and regeneration, address itself to the social and educational problems, fulfill the expectations of the people, accelerate the process of nation building and assist in the realization of constitutional goals. It is true that considerable achievements have been made in all these directions. Teacher education cannot remain indifferent to its context and major concerns. In this experiment the researcher found the result like this, Children learn best by action followed by reflection and feedback. In teaching five A are important that is 1) Aim- Clear learning objective before starting any lesson by clear about what outcomes we want to see for the students 2) Activity- Experimental , start the lesson with the activity where children have their own experiences and try out 3) Analysis—Questioning & Concept Formation , introduced the concept to the students formally through questions and discussions. 4) Apply – Real life problem Solving , self study with reflective questions and challenging problems. 5) Assess- Measurement & Feed Back.

 Teaching is the noblest among all professions. Teachers help in shaping and reshaping the society and determine the quality of life in the community and the nation. So the teacher quality is crucial issue for the teacher education. To improve the quality of teacher education, competent and committed teacher educators are given due place for pious task of preparing future teachers. There has been rapid growth of education at all level which has resulted into increasing number of teachers as well as more schools. As a result, quality of education was sacrificed for the sake of quantity in education and the teacher education facilities could not be increased in the proportion to the number of teachers needed for the increase in enrolment at school level. As a result, untrained candidates with low academic qualifications were appointed as teachers. The deteriorating condition of teacher education is due to the lack of commitment and positive attitude towards teaching profession. Need of the hour is to have a five year professional course of teacher education after +2 stage and establishment of a national University of Teacher Education.

Teachers are the torch bearers in creating social cohesion, national integration and a learning society. They not only disseminate knowledge but also create and generate new knowledge. They are responsible for acculturating role of education.

 India has the second largest system of schooling in the world. About five million
school teachers are working in the country at different levels of schooling. In India,
not only in the school system but also in the social system as a Catalyst of change and
development throughout the present system of teacher education in our country, one
can say without any fear of contradiction that it is in deep crisis. It is sad that in spite
of appointing several commissions and committees by the government we have failed
to create teacher education programmes tailor made to meet the needs of the present
day society in India. At present we are confronted with challenges of knowledge
explosion, revolutionary, changes in information and communication technology,
value crisis, social religious conflicts and tension etc. unless the future teachers are
made sensitive to all these challenges. It is difficult for anyone to survive as a teacher
and play the role expected of him. The phenomenon of globalization is considered as
the most wide spread trend our century has ever witnessed. So in this century teacher
education faced it of challenges in the context of Globalization.

Teacher educators do not consider the benefits of using specific ICT resources to the teaching learning process. Teacher educators do not use interactive ICT tools. Teacher educators do not use group work/ pair work during an ICT based session. Teacher educators use only questions as assessment tools.

 This study of MBME (Mind-Body Management Education) program accepts a common sense approach that “self-development” is a natural part of what we can call “maturity”. Clearly, self development involves both the mind and body of the individual, and this thesis follows the original Eastern understanding, and current Western scientific understanding, of the unity of the mind and body. We are all aware of how the mind affects the body. But less well appreciated, changes in the body will affect the mind. The MBME is designed to provide participants with a physical movement program which includes the following qualities: flexibility, awareness, balance, breathing, beauty and grace. The hypothesis for this research project is that if an individual can learn to develop these qualities in their bodies, this will help them develop the same changes in their minds and their behavior.

The research report which is a vital part of research makes the readers understand the researcher’s thinking process. One is tempted to include all the information one gets in a research report. Edward de Bono, the father of lateral thinking, has provided ‘Six Frames’ for thinking about and extracting more value from information. This conceptual paper focuses on how one can use the six frames while looking at a research report. These frames can help guide researchers to think about the information they get while writing their research reports and evaluating them. This can improve the quality of research in Teacher Education. Thus these frames help us to focus our attention towards specific parts of the information, assisting us in clearly perceiving the information and guiding our thinking.

program. Considering the present situation of TE, its curriculum, the teacher
educator, teacher trainees, administrator, and management of particular
institution faced problems of admission process. There is minimisation of the
number of students in teacher education institutions. Intake capacity of
students in institution is not fulfilled. It creates overburden and job insecurity
for the members who are working in the respective institution. Increase the
age limit for the job i.e. 60 to62- 65 years by rule. Because of this rule job
opportunity for the new comers is decreased. It also affect the mentality of the
person who taking the benefit of this rules that person is not taking so much
interest in the academic work, lack of professional involvement in the
institution. The majority of teacher trainees look at teacher education program
as a passport to join in school means to become teacher. Therefore most of
them de-motivated to move toward this profession. Even in non-aided colleges
of education who don’t pay as per pay scale stipulated by the government.
Another reason is unavailability of NET/ SET qualified students. This is the
ground reality due to which this profession don’t attract better personals who
become better teacher educator , better administration. The present paper
highlighted the challenges and experiences in teacher education program.
