Education trend in Tamil Nadu
Education is the thing which shapes our knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education should help the pupil to think and solve their own problems in day to day life. This problem solving ability will gain confident in all the things he faces in his/her life. Future of education may evolve into much more us than what we are seeing now. Online education is one form of education which delivers knowledge using the internet. Online education gives the virtual classroom experience & face-to-face interactive learning. Rather than reading books, animated concepts of topics are more powerful in learning. In this digital age, smart class room’s education contributes more than the traditional methods.
Teachers are the backbone of educational systems. A good teacher knows how to bring out the best in students. Technology has made it easier for students to learn with new devices but nothing can replace the experience of being taught by an inspirational and caring teacher. Technology won’t replace teachers but teachers who use technology for teaching will probably replace teacher who do not.
“Most teachers waste their time by asking questions which are intended to discover what a pupil does not know whereas the true art of questioning has for its purpose to discover what the pupil knows or is capable of knowing” –Albert Einstein.
Current education scenario and challenges
Education management is the process of evaluating and developing strategies to improve the overall performance of an educational system. Tamil Nadu is one of the most literate states in India. The state's literacy rate is 80.33% in 2011, which is above the national average. Most of the schools in Tamil Nadu are transforming their teaching from chalk & blackboard to projectors & smart devices. Thus it helps the students to grab concepts quickly and make him/her to think beyond the limits. This behavior eliminates the bitter part in education system. Still, more schools in rural areas are not able to experience these smart education platforms. Though Government introduced free education schemes the way of teaching and training through technologies varies pace to place in all parts of Tamil Nadu. This unhealthy behavior makes the difference in pupil intelligence level.
