Self-Reliant School For Self-Reliant India
As Rabindranath Tagore said, “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.” The social and economic well-being and stability of a self-sufficient India will be a lot better if more people get an education. In the words of our Honorable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, “Atma Nirbhar Bharat,” we can think of this as a motto for society as a whole, not just for us. In the world after Covid, India will start a new era of being self-sufficient. In the heart of Indian education, the idea of self-reliance has been around for a long time. As a child, the curriculum has always been based on the practise of self-study, in which the learner would work on his own knowledge. Self-study has been seen as a good thing for students to do in the past, but with the commercialization of the education system, it was becoming less common.
Indian schools tried to deal with a global epidemic that no one expected by using the technology of digitization to help students learn about it. Social isolation made physical classrooms and tutoring centres obsolete, so Indian students went back to a time when they had to learn on their own. While the decorum and discipline were at best questionable in the early days, parents tried to get their kids to be more polite and disciplined so that they could have a better life. People say that “Self-help is the best help,” This old adage has never been more true, especially when it comes to students these days. They live in a time where they have to figure out how to learn on their own, with little or no help from other people. There are a lot of online courses that say they can help students when they need it the most, but it is only a good option for a small number of people. Furthermore, the question of how to keep students safe is still unanswered. They are, however, still expected to be able to do a lot of things on their own during the teaching and learning process.
There will be a self-sufficient system of education in the future.
Edtech wants to change the “factory model” that has been in place in India for a long time. Education in the current system is not personalised or customised because students are treated as a group rather than as individuals, so it does not work. Edtech giants take advantage of the different needs of different fields and students and plan accordingly to make it a good teaching-learning experience for the students. Because EdTech has the space to pay attention to each student’s performance in higher education, the educational relationship can be reproduced and even improved. Content redundancy and outdated teaching methods are big issues, but it is worth noting that these two things will change on their own if EdTech is used a lot in schools. An important part of India’s education system is called “edtech.” This is a group of people who make things like computers and apps that are easier for people to use.
NEP has set a new standard for how things should be done.
The NEP has been sold to the public as a new way to run, deliver, and pay for education. It is a huge project that promises to be one of the best educational systems in the world. Freedom and flexibility are two important parts of self-reliance that it wants to change to meet the needs and desires of today’s society. When students do not have to deal with the dread and complexity of choosing a job, it is important. A new law says that students will not have to deal with the pressure from society to choose a major. The best thing is that kids will be able to choose from a wide range of subjects, so they can combine Math, Science, and the Arts to find what they like. People in middle school have a job: They start the gears moving by planting the seed of self-sufficiency in people.
Using competency-based learning in the classroom has helped improve self-reliance education in India. We, as citizens of this holistic country, need to understand it and do more of these things.
