Schools associated to Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) are expected to come up with certain changes in syllabus, infrastructure, teachers' training and modernisation as per a report of India Today.
According to Times of India (TOI), Secretary-Treasurer of Association of Schools for the Indian School Certificate (ASISC), K V Vincent said, "The way we read, learn, work, communicate and find information have changed drastically in the last few years. The implication of these changes is tremendous in all walks of life. We need to rethink our practices as educators in response to these changes."
Further in a report, Governor S C Jamir said, "Technology has become an inseparable part of education and has come a great way from the parrot like pedagogy, that was prevalent a few years ago. It has helped learning anywhere, anytime. It's no more limited to classrooms. However, in spite of all this, I would firmly say that technology is never a substitute for a teacher."
"There is a crisis of moral values in most walks of life. It is the responsibility of the educational institutions to bring back the values in public as well as private lives," he added.
A session will also be held to talk about various issues like grades and marks, smart classes, e-learning, emphasis on practical studies in addition to theory, upgradation of laboratories and extracurricular activities. The plan will be discussed amongst different people from ICSE affiliated schools across the country.
