And if this is true, what kind of future are we staring at. Actually the repercussions are pretty negative and far-reaching. There is a skill gap not just in teaching profession but all across. The current generation believes in short-cuts and would like to get most in life without too much effort. This gets reflected amongst the students undergoing courses at higher education level. The focus happens to be just to clear the exam/degree without any creative thinking. Same is the case with the young ones in the work force. The whole work culture is such that it is the stick which drives productivity.
Much of these ethos and ethics get ingrained into the psyche at much younger age during school times. Which is why the quality of teachers teaching to that segment is of utmost importance for the future of this country.
Therefore, it is time to launch “Train the Trainer” initiative pan-India. IntelliTuts, the virtual classroom platform can really speed up this process of training the teachers and help correcting this current scenario. Human resources at all levels need grooming up. The education system without the presence of technology had seriously lacked in the past. But now, the lectures can be centrally conducted by a trainer of repute and delivered live to remote locations and then can be re-telecasted over and over again using IntelliTuts.
All this, even if brings about a positive change in small percentage will still yield huge results since each of these teachers are interacting with students in much larger numbers.
