Steps Required To Bring Resource to Campus

We have to bring together a lot of initiatives  to impart quality skill training in our campus,they are..

Initiative-1: Make the problems visible  

Regular assessments are needed to measure progress in learning and make the current levels visible in a way that can be understood widely. India should participate regularly in international assessments like Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study and Programme for International Student Assessment so as to set goals and benchmark its performance and progress. The quality of national assessments should be improved and third party assessors like Annual Status on Education Report and Educational Initiatives should be encouraged to provide periodic feedback. The District Information System for Education (DISE)1system should be upgraded to a ‘Student Progress Tracking System’ which will track learning levels of individual children and provide diagnostic data to serve as a basis for improvement to schools and teachers.

Initiative-2:  Check any skill gaps and fill them through effective training

We have to make sure that there are no skill gaps found in the students and if found they must be filled through effective training . Every time assessment on the students education procedure will  achieve Quality skill training in every campus.

Initiative-3:  Invest in technology for education

Hand-in-hand with educational research inherent in all the initiatives above, there is a need to research and develop ways to use technology to drive the change we desire. The focus should not be on installing hardware but creating new, high-quality content such as intelligent teaching systems and tools that will help students to hone basic skills like reading and mathematics, and developing content in multiple Indian languages.

Initiative-4:   Holistic development

Efforts in areas such as sports, arts and culture should be initiated or expanded in order to enrich holistic development.

Initiative-5:   Introduce school/campus-based practices for learning improvement

Every learning should be practical to have a very good understanding on it.Campus based practices are very important for professional and quality skill development.

The above five steps/Initiatives are very important to bring the resource to the campus.
