Alvin Toffler rightly said “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn…”
Teachers have always played a transformative role in the lives of children, helping them grow as sensitive, sincere and good citizens. Since the field of education is dynamic and diverse, a teacher has no longer remained as an agent of imparting education but also a facilitator and co-learner.
Technology in the form of internet, Smart Boards, social media, Globalization—everything has brought about a radical change in education. Children come to school with a lot of information and all that a teacher teaches is verifiable at the click of a key. Thus, a teacher has to adapt to these new changes in technology besides inspiring enquiry and reasoning through group discussion, role play, experimentation and organizing classroom activities in cognizance with the child’s nature and immediate environment.
The past few years have witnessed a spurt in activities in the field of sports. The Common Wealth Games held at Delhi and the Olympic Games have acted as a catalyst to redirect our focus on the need to pay more attention to sports and showcase them as lucrative career options. Although sports are encouraged in many schools, the focus largely remains academic.
LPS Global School is the best school in Noida with a reputation of academic excellence, and we pride ourselves on the fact that we focus on co-curricular activities. As a growing school, LPS Global School is the top CBSE School in Noida is able to ensure individual student tracking as a standard part of our educational programme to encertain that each student has the opportunity to succeed in their studies and progress toward achieving their dreams, whatever they may be.
In the changing world scenario with regard to industry and the job market there is an overpowering need for skilled workers. At the school level apart from core subject expertise there must be options available for skill development courses, such as Hospitality and Tourism, Healthcare, Photography, Retails, Banking to name a few, ideally from the secondary stage of schooling. The pedagogy has to be practical; learning can be enhanced through field visits, e-learning etc.
Therefore, to make India the skill capital of the world the school curriculum will have to undergo a dynamic change. Introducing skill training to those set of students who are unable to cope with mainstream education will give them an option to lead a dignified life without being exploited or being vulnerable.
It is imperative to integrate skill development with education for skilling to take wings. The time has come for the India education system to change from the traditional top-down approach (where major initiatives and decisions are taken in the universities, councils and board rooms) to a bottom-up approach where students and the stake holders at the grass root level are the focus. In a multi-cultural, secular society like ours education acts as a unifying force and helps in bringing uniformity in the system. Not only does it make it possible to have a shared vision, it also helps bringing in a synergy to make transformation and harmony possible.
Students attending at LPS Global School in Noida are expected to apply themselves to a rigorous programme of study intended to challenge them to achieve their full potential and to strive for excellence, to develop academically, as well as socially and emotionally through the rich co-curricular programmes available.
