All-inclusive Soft Skill Training in education

Digital Literacy Curriculum for schools

Nano learning – future of teaching

All-inclusive Soft Skill Training in education

with the advent of new education policy, soft skill training in the curriculum has been at the top of the town.

 now let’s discuss this topic in details

 If you remember past days rote learning was at the top of all studies whether these personal tuitions or classes or examinations or any other career options, rote learning was an inseparable part of our educational curriculum.

Over a period of time paradigm changes took place in the education sector and yes time has changed.

And the entire focus is not shifted towards soft skill training in curriculum it means rote learning is no more the choice of this generation and skill-based learning has taken roots in almost every sector of education.

Nowadays the discussion of education policy wherever educators meet, seminars are organized the main topic is to build aptitude around cognitive skills around creative zeal, problem-solving ideas and many more such skills which are required in real life.

The new drafted well-researched syllabus of the institutions enable today’s generation to apply the learning in real life and that sort of thing is resurfacing more and more and the old syllabus type which contained the data and figure statistics of no use is now dumped and instead, a new way of learning has come up.

Instead of dumping all data and figures in the mind of students now education teachers and the school emphasize various skills like public speaking, leadership skill, creative thinking skills, problem-solving skills etc. which may be developed during classroom learning and it’s very important to step with a focus on online and offline studies viz-a-viz indoor and outdoor studies.

Now the students are well equipped, well-learned and well-trained to deal with the real challenges in the world this is the drastic change in the tradition by the books teaching in the school. It’s a new era of learning. This new approach of teaching has been taken as a nation-building approach where we find informed citizenry in the form of students who are capable enough to understand the things and face the challenges i.e the real challenges in the world and make this country a wonderful place so this is a grand change from traditional teaching to a new generation teaching of students.

These new generation students are acquiring soft skills to navigate the world with challenges and the work of different nature they can enter this world with confidence and make a generation working for the betterment of society. one of the best examples of soft skill training which is implemented in Saraswati World school is the implementation of NEST methods or nest methodologies where the creative thinking and the approach towards technology are being cautiously balanced in every student and where understanding of any subject is kept high instead of just rote learning and indoor and outdoor studies is the trademark of nest methodology. This kind of implementation can transform the school from a traditional rote learning student to a highly creative competitive, competent and very smart student there is n number of implementation examples and ideas which may be implemented or adopted at the school level to develop soft skill training or to make students shine and rock to deal with the real world.

The inclusion of soft skill training via third party support is a way to nurture and grow with changes.

Digital Literacy Curriculum for schools

Digital Literacy is fast becoming important skill set for the entire learning community in an increasingly digital world.

It is not to be understood as a course or degree but an ability to learn, read, understand, analyze, communicate, mingle in social, cultural, civic, and intelligent life at the digital platform. So the skills to digital passport are how effectively you handle the tools for it.

The way of communication and collaboration is now under a digital environment that is much more advanced, quick, and all-pervasive.

And the rise of educational technology complements the necessity of digital literacy.

The latest trend is catching fire globally in some of the best schools and colleges at full pace.

Digital literacy is being absorbed and knitted as part and parcel of the entire curriculum and no subjects or stream is left behind for mingling with educational technology. The schools and colleges are now working to establish it as the latest tool to understand, learn, explore and grow in the path of knowledge in completely changing scenarios.

Now we advocate the four major reasons to adopt digital literacy as a whole action plan for schools and colleges.

1. Preparing for Change

Young Minds need to be prepared to enable them to deal with the increasingly saturated world with digital technologies.

2. Reality compliments study

As young people are already using or engaging with digital tools and technologies to find, explore research things of interest and knowledge, and communicate in this way beyond the school campus. This situation poses great opportunities and challenges to address it.

3. Uneven and differential sets of ability

Young people have varying degrees of usage and engagement of digital technology with altogether different levels of skills and knowledge and this poses the responsibility towards schools and colleges to propagate this technology to mitigate the gap.

4. Changing Knowledge Pattern

Developing digital literacy paves way for students to access subjects, knowledge at a time when digital technology is fast introducing and changing the way knowledge is created and communicated. It helps schools to engage with children’s lived experiences and knowledge to make learning more relevant and purposeful.

Nano learning – future of teaching

With the advent of new technology for almost everything or work, education is no exception to this and remarkable changes can be seen in this field where the traditional way of teaching and instruction is fast changing to achieve the best from every student.

One such initiative is nano learning which is also going popular across schools, colleges, and universities. another name of nano learning is short learning or macro learning and these are interchangeably used.

In some places, it is seen that nano learning is shown different from microlearning which is altogether a different subject and will not be discussed in this topic.

The last two years have been the toughest for human life and so for providing education. The extraordinary situation has forced us to sit back in front of a computer screen for hours to receive an education. The consequences of such long drawn sitting and exposure before computer screen is showing colors in the form of sickness, psychological problems, mental fatigue, eyesight problems, physical exertion, etc. and these outcomes lead to complicated problems related to a reduced state of attention span for students means loss of focus and concentration and different behavior of human (student) psyche.

Entire learning is compromised as reduced attention span or focus coupled with disinterest is a matter of concern for everyone.

To deal with the little attention span one can resort to a nano learning model to deal with the situation.

To define nano learning in one sentence is ” to provide information in smaller possible size to students to understand and learn it in quickest possible time.”

For example instead of sending an entire chapter of 5000 words to students for learning once divided the same in 500 words or Para and provide the same to students to gauge it fast.

from student psychology, it is evident that learning in short bursts is proved to be useful for students to retain the information and adapt for better cognition.

so one can say that by providing the small pallets of information it is likely to see the tremendous rise of efficacy in studies.

And if things move in a positive direction it is not that difficult to grasp the attention of students and aid their ability for better cognition.

The practical approach to implement this model in the classroom is four steps model.

No1. Identify the need of the students- by this we mean to investigate and find the area of the subjects not properly understood by students or the chapters or topics students ask for.

No2. Finalize your learning objective – by this, we mean to understand the requirement like theory or practice or indoor or outdoor, etc.

No3. Choose your teaching ai carefully – by this we mean the use of technological aids available like a smart board, computer or whiteboard whatever you find suitable to reach your students.

No.4 Last but not least keep your lecture or presentation short to 4-5 minutes

To bring nano learning is not a very easy job but continuous efforts and collaboration will help in achieving it in a shorter time.

Spacious and sound infrastructure is the pillar of Good School

A good School is known by its well designed, ventilated, spacious, green and perfect ambience called School Building & campus.

School Campus

The School campus consists of the main school building, residential blocks, administrative blocks, sports complex, clubhouse, indoor playground, lush green garden, kids play zone, amphitheatre, basketball or volleyball ground etc.

The main school building should consist of well-lit classrooms, libraries, well sanitized and clean toilets, Laboratories of different faculty, indoor game room, activity room, multipurpose room, infirmary, lockers, storage, work area etc.

The backbone of any school’s infrastructure is the classroom. The classroom needs to be spacious to accommodate 25-30 students. For better result an area of 5oo sq. ft. is sufficient to have a class of 25 to 30 students. The regular classroom should be designed to have a positive effect on every student. Needless to say that every classroom should ideally be equipped with the latest educational technology.

The heart of any educational institution is its library. A library should have well stock of books, magazine, and digital content on various subjects of interest with proper sitting area which allows students to use the service conveniently.

The School library is a quiet and calm place with a soothing ambience for the students to concentrate better.

A good school campus with adequate spaces makes it a living place for the children to excel. The impact of educational infrastructure on the students set out to identify empirical well-being of students in schools.

A well made educational institution makes the educational space perfect for developing individual and independent creativity.

It creates interest among children to feel comfortable and special in school.

And it creates a happy environment in school where students love to come and it improves attendance in every standard. Thus, it’s important for schools to have good infrastructure to improve the performance of the students and improving the school’s system.

A good school has extensive infrastructure for academic and non-academic pursuits of students.

Changing teaching methodology- New possibilities and challenges

Past few decades have witnessed a number of methodologies and teaching techniques used to teach students in the classroom.

New innovation and thoughts overpower past techniques and in some cases, long-forgotten techniques of teaching become favourite again. It seems the innovative approach and past practices go hand in hand and most of the time compliment each other.

There have been unending debates on usefulness or effectiveness of various methodologies used. However, in some methodologies, things are changing as perceived.

As a rule, the curriculum is designed and presented to students by the accredited school boards (Private and Public) under the broader educational framework set by the government. For example in India, There is a number of school boards (CBSE, ICSE, IB, State Boards) running under the broader policy guidelines of Ministry of Human Resouces. However, the main work starts at school or teachers level and teachers with the coordination of the study directors plan the whole process of each course considering the suitability of the content to match with the IQ and EQ of students.

The said methodology and techniques are put to use by the teacher in the classroom which determines the progress and development of students under set parameters and experience of each teacher is what determines the percentage of success achieved in the development of students through the use of said techniques.

The very basis of most of the methodology is that education must be available to everyone regardless of race, colour or sex.

One of the important techniques used is the introduction of the concept of teamwork amongst students (in fact the old methodology used in Gurukul – ancient education system – very much supported teamwork ).

In this technology-driven world, techniques can’t be practised without the use of technology and hence various techniques in the form of personalized studies, smart classes, the tablet form of learningInteractive Board, Augmented reality-based educationsports-based education etc are in use in almost every corner of the world. And some of these are successful in nurturing the young minds for a better society.

Digital Education

Tablet-Based Education

Interactive whiteboard based education

Augmented Reality-Based Education

Sports-based Education

One of the new methodologies which are fast coming up is NEST: Nature, Environment, Science and Technology.

The four pillars of this methodology bring a new dimension of learning and development for students. This method focuses on practical classes with the outdoor student’s group together with the teachers to understand the first-hand experience of nature and environment like practical classes in the field, farming tours etc. It is essential to know where and how the process of such things are done in reality. The idea is to make students aware of the natural processes of our mother nature. The idea is to bring hierarchical knowledge of education.

And the environment respects the same as a natural way to understand the things around us.

Such methodology makes balances between practical exposure and technological gadgets. Use of technology to explore various stream of knowledge is backed by practical classes. One such technological driven way is personalized learning of every student.

In general, there is two way of teaching:

1. The teacher-centred approach (expository approach) where the teacher exposes knowledge to the learners.

2. The learner-centred approach (heuristic approach) where learners are encouraged to find information on their own.

With the advent of new methodology, new avenues of knowledge are also open to students like a robotic lab, observatory labs, new experiment labs, skill development labs etc.

Importance of Science Lab

In this world of education where plenty of methodologies are available for schools to follow one can’t say which one is more effective or useful for students and only the progress of students can best be used as a yardstick to justify any technique or methodology.

Beyond Board Exam – Chill and Fill

In today’s education system board exams bring nervousness, fear and anxiety to most of the students. It is one of the major challenges that every student has to undergo to come out successful in life.

I am writing this article for those students who are struggling hard to deal with the pressure of the board exam.

In the first part, I suggest how to study and what mistakes most of the students do at the initial stage. In the second part, I share tips.

I have named my approach “chill and fill” and here chill refers to necessary breaks one has to go for after studies which give necessary rest to the brain and fill refers to fill up all the gaps that may come up after learning any topic by way of revision and discussion.

The mistake most of the students does is to take all new topics at a time to learn when they see exam is fast approaching. The human brain works in a particular way and once information is fed to the brain it takes time to settle it in the subconscious mind. And before one information is properly set if new information keeps coming chances of draining or lapse will be high.

The diagram shows that students take up most of the topics at a time when exams are fast approaching and they don’t actually get time to revise or make it permanent in their brain. And all their efforts go in vain.

I recommend regular pyramid for every student.

This diagram follows that most of the topics need to be covered in the initial period and as time rolls out one needs to pay attention to revision and little or no further addition to a new topic.

While studying “Self-rewarding” in the form of chill out with friends and relatives is a must for every student.

Two things student must do while exams are approaching first to fill all the lapses or deficiency in previous learning by way of revision and discussion and second to chill out to give relaxation to the brain.

Most of the parents expect their children to be in study mode 24*7 but in truth, it’s not possible as the human brain has certain limits beyond which it can’t function. Chill out with near and dear one is a very good idea to accelerate brain working in young minds.

Many of the students might have missed the initial pyramid and now facing the challenges of memorising a large number of topics at a time which is a daunting task for anyone.

I recommend 10 -15 mins meditation every day to make the mind calm and settled. The calm mind can do wonder in the exam. The meditation coupled with chill out at regular interval is a good idea for latecomers.

Real Challenges in Student’s Life and ways to win over it

With changing world everything changes like lifestyle, relation, etiquette, education and society at large.

Change always brings permutation and combination of balances and imbalances. So if I ask what changes 21st century brought for us and most will reply “imbalance” where? In today’s youth what we called students in schools and colleges.

Every student walks in with umbrella of comfort and pre-notions and gets surrounded by new challenges which he or she perceived as a problem and here the real problem starts in a student’s life.

The surprising part of this created notion is that the students who are facing it never admit it and this non-admission of ground reality put them in a difficult situation and it affects them in such a way that they grow up to a different persona and psyche.

And guess what happens to them when they attend maturity age to take responsibilities. It will be a complete mess with their life.

So identifying such problems at an early age and its resolution is the need of the hour. And every parent must not leave it to time and destiny. The job is difficult on the part of parents and teachers as well but to start with it we may first think of the nature and magnitude of problems youth are facing in today’s world.

To understand this we must look at the three-tier structure of youth’s life.

The very outer or apparent problem lies at the physical level and we call it Physical level problem

The inner or non – physical problems lie at young minds and it looks subtle and mostly hidden or concealed at their end. It’s a conflict in the inner world.

And the third one is the subtlest form arising due to various social reasons. It’s a conflict between the inner and outer world.

At the physical level, the lists are long and most of us know about it some of these problems are – lengthy curriculum, study burden, boredom because of distractions causing bunking or skipping classes. And most students complain about the focus problem and daydreaming. 21st Century lifestyle has quietly replaced the healthy lifestyles previous generation used to follow and the consequence is most of the youth are having health issues at an early age. The poor health index affects their overall performance in studies and other related activities. The lack of inclination towards sports due to better distraction at hand (Mobile) has completely ruined the health of this generation. The imbalance at a very physical level from lifestyle to health and from focus to concentration form first or outer layer of problems surrounding most of the students.

While analyzing the problem deeper and look at the inner wall of the problem it looks even scarier and it appears to be the collection of suicidal tendency, anxiety, depression, stress and despair at an extreme level. Most of the problem comes from subtler issues like peer pressure, competition, distractions of 21st century, adolescent issues, social taboos including sex, laziness etc. some of the problems are age-related and some are due to changing social pattern. These problems are so grave that most of the undesired event happened at the student’s life is due to imbalance of the inner wall of the problem.

The problems at the social level are the consequence of physical and mental level problems and often come up due to inner and outer conflict. The first subtlest problem is de-motivation. Understand this as the effect of root cause i.e stress anxiety etc. The nature and source of demotivation are many and present in the form of parents, neighbours, teachers, and friends. The second one is discrimination on the basis of race, colour, religion, social status, country origin, gender or creed.

The three together i.e. the outer, the inner and the conflict in between complete the cycle of the real problem faced by students.

So what solutions we are expecting? Do we expect a shortcut or instant remedy which takes away all the problems instantly? Certainly, there are no solutions which are short cut or instant.

To me, solutions are like an investment which in the long run pays a heavy dividend to investors. The approach to finding a solution lies within the problem we just have to look at it.

Finally, what are solutions which we can offer to today’s youth? There are four steps solution which is in general applicable to every student.

The first step is to bring discipline to your lifestyle. The much-needed discipline will bring necessary balance in once health and all we know healthy mind stays in a healthy body.

The second step is resetting the mind free of from anxiety and stress and this is only possible from meditation which reinvigorates mind to its full potential to deal with problems as challenges.

The third step is to enjoy the consequence of the previous two steps – bring back all joy and happiness in one’s life. Remember Youth can’t harness the full potential of their mind unless the necessary balance is not achieved to have a calm mind.

The fourth step is to be consistent in all three steps as these steps are not 21 days course but a lifelong commitment.

Just to remember embracing health, discipline, meditation for happiness and joy is key to unlock the full potential of youth and getting rid of all problems.
