The School Weekly - 18th September 2017

Learning Forward
We're all familiar with the extravagant promises of technology: It will make our students smarter and it will do it faster and cheaper than ever before. Moreover, the promise suggests, this miracle will occur almost by osmosis. We need only place a computer in a room, stand back, and watch the magic take place. If only life were that simple and learning that easy! Now, we've entered an era in which technology is no longer an intimidating novelty. Its use in business and industry is both accepted and expected. And pressure abounds -- from the federal government, from local school boards, and certainly from the popular press -- for educators to get on board and see to it that students become technologically skilled.
First and foremost, educators want students to learn. It is certainly not enough to tell educators that they need to use the boxes and wires that have invaded their schools simply because they are expensive or because students need to know how to use the latest widget. If it's clear that technological tools will help them achieve that goal, educators will use those tools. The real world is not broken down into discrete academic disciplines. I've heard a number of teachers say that they would like to be able to change the way they teach -- to find ways to implement project-based, multidisciplinary lessons. Let's think about how that might happen when technology is used to support learning.
In such an environment, educators can encourage a diversity of outcomes rather than insisting on one right answer. They can evaluate learning in multiple ways, instead of relying predominately on traditional paper and pencil tests. And perhaps most importantly, teachers and students can move from pursuing individual efforts to being part of learning teams, which may include students from all over the world. Technology provides educators with the opportunity to move from simply streamlining the way things have always been done to really imagining things they would like to do.
Teachers must take responsibility for helping design the staff development process so that it really meets their needs -- so that it includes time to practice using the equipment, to watch teacher’s model lessons that infuse technology into the curriculum, and to mentor other teachers. Teachers are creative, intelligent people, and once they learn to use technology in their professional lives -- for keeping records, for creating documents, and for enhancing their own learning -- they will soon discover the many ways in which technology can enhance what they are doing with their students.
Finally, teachers must educate themselves on how to best use those tools to enhance teaching and learning. It is an exciting time to be teaching, and we must seize this moment to challenge ourselves, our students, our administrators, and policymakers throughout the country to help all teachers make the best use of the technology tools available to them. -Mr. Byju Joseph/ Educator

Moving On
A year before, I shifted from Bombay to Rajasthan. It was to study in a co-educational school. But coming from there was really a heart breaking and disappointing news for me. I never thought that there will be time like this that I will have to live in a small village. I had grown up in Bombay with tall buildings, modern trends and new technology. I had great problem in adjusting myself here in Rajasthan. But thanks to all my friends who helped me to successfully adjust here. When I came to the school very first day, I made new friends. They were kind and good natured. They made me feel comfortable after my unexpected arrival. My classmates were cooperative and helped me to complete my notes. Well, I believe that the time that I spend in Fabindia School will help me touch heights and bring in lots of changes in me. I thank all my teachers for the motivation they have given to me. -Devika Choudhary/ X/ TH
