Education and Educated World Citizen

Statements of the Heads of the WEF 2015 Convening Agencies

Education is the key to a better life for every child and the foundation of every strong society – but far too many children are still being left behind. To realize all our development goals, we need every child in school and learning.

Anthony Lake, Executive Director, UNICEF

In our world, knowledge is power, and education empowers. It is an indispensable part of the development equation. It has intrinsic value – extending far beyond the economic – to empower people to determine their own destiny. That is why the opportunity to be educated is central to advancing human development.

Helen Clark, UNDP Administrator

 Together we must promote and protect every person’s right to education, and ensure that quality education reaches all, and instils values of peace, justice, human rights and gender equality.

Babatunde Osotimehin, UNFPA Executive Director

Humanistic vision of education and development, based on the principles of human rights and dignity, social justice, peace, inclusion and protection, as well as cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity and shared responsibility and accountability.( P 24)

Features of SDG4-Education 2030

SDG4-Education 2030 agenda is embedded in its holistic and humanistic vision. Education is a fundamental human right and an enabling right.

Goal 4 is comprehensive-

  1. Holistic,
  2. Ambitious,
  3. Aspirational
  4. Universal,

 SDG4-Education 2030 focuses on increased and expanded access, inclusion and equity, quality and learning outcomes at all levels, within a lifelong learning approach.

SDG4-Education 2030 agenda is that it is universal and is owned by the entire world, developed and developing countries alike.

Urgent need to focus on SDG4-Education 2030

  1. To provide early childhood care and education to ensure children’s long term development, learning and health
  2. To ensure that all children, youth and adults are learning and acquire relevant skills, including proficiency in literacy
  3. To develop (for children, youth and adults) throughout life the flexible skills and competencies they need to live and work in a more secure, sustainable, interdependent, knowledge-based and technology-driven world
  4. To ensure that all individuals acquire a solid foundation of knowledge, develop creative and critical thinking and collaborative skills, and build curiosity, courage and resilience
  5. To develop education systems that are more resilient and responsive in the face of conflict, social unrest and natural hazards – and to ensure that education is maintained during emergency, conflict and post-conflict situations (P 27)

Education for all:-access to inclusive, equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities

The new education agenda’s focus on inclusion and equity – giving everyone an equal opportunity, and leaving no one behind signals another lesson: the need for increased efforts especially aimed at reaching those marginalized or in vulnerable situations.

All people, irrespective of sex, age, race, colour, ethnicity, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property or birth, as well as persons with disabilities, migrants, indigenous peoples, and children and youth, especially those in vulnerable situations or other status, should have access to inclusive, equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities.

National Early Childhood Care and Education (Ecce) Curriculum Framework

National Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Policy




Birth to 6 Years

Extract and Summary of ‘Foundation of Early Care and Learning’ (Section–I)

Learning is an active, interactive and life long process. A wise educator respect children’s unique social, linguistic, cultural background and diversity. Children differ in their strengths and capabilities.  A wise educator promotes child’s individual strengths. In fact, the first six years of life are the critical years of human life since the rate of development in these years is more rapid than at any other stage of development. (ECCE, Introduction)

Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) encompass the inseparable elements of care, health, nutrition, play and early learning within a protective and enabling environment. (P 5)

Vision for an Indian Child

The National ECCE Policy visualizes nurturance and promotion of holistic development and active learning capacity of all children below 6 years of age by promoting free, universal, inclusive, equitable, joyful and contextualized opportunities for laying foundation and attaining full potential. (P 6) Early childhood care and education programmes should be based on an understanding of the patterns of development and learning that define the essential nature of childhood. (P 10) (ECCE) curriculum framework views children as happy, healthy and confident; each child with unique identity, grounded in their individual strengths and capacities; and with respect for their unique social, linguistic, and cultural heritage and diversity.

Purpose of this framework:-

  1. To promote quality and excellence in early childhood care and education by providing guidelines for child care and early educational practices
  2. To support to early years professionals, service providers, ECCE teachers/caregivers, communities and state governments in providing rich early stimulation and learning experiences for children from birth to pre- primary years (P 4)
  3. To facilitate optimum development of the child’s full potential and lay the foundation for all round development and lifelong learning (P 10)

Our young children strive to be:

• Happy and healthy

• Inquirer

• Confident

• Communicative

• Creative

• Caring

• Open-minded

• Resilient

• Sensitive to diversity

• Respectful

• Mindful

• Life-long learner (P6)

Broad objectives of the Early Childhood Care and Education programme are to:

• Ensure each child is valued, respected, feels safe and secure and develops a positive self


• Enable a sound foundation for physical and motor development of each child- as per each

child’s potential

• Imbibe good nutrition routines, health habits, hygiene practices and self help skills

• Enable children for effective communication and foster both receptive and expressive


• Promote development and integration of the senses

• Stimulate intellectual curiosity and develop conceptual understanding of the world around by

providing opportunities to explore, investigate and experiment

• Enhance development of pro-social skills, social competence and emotional well being

• Develop sense of aesthetic appreciation and stimulate creative learning processes.

• Imbibe culturally and developmentally appropriate behaviour and core human values of respect and love for fellow human beings.

• Enable a smooth transition from home to ECCE centre to formal schooling

• Enhance scope for overall personality development

National Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Policy (P 10)

Language Concern at the Early Childhood Care and Education programme

Language plays an important role in communication, exchange of information, development of reading skills, reading with comprehension, and, in later years, academic success. (P 14)

The medium of interaction in the ECCE centre should be home language or mother tongue. It is important to encourage different languages for expression by children in the ECCE centres. Children should be encouraged to be proficient in their mother tongue/ home language first and then the formal school language (regional language or English) should be introduced. However teaching through child’s mother tongue/ home language, is internationally recognised as the most appropriate way of working with children in the early years of concept formation. However, it is crucial that when the school language (which may be regional language or English) is introduced, the ECCE teachers/ caregivers must continue to convey a positive attitude about children’s first language (mother tongue/ home language).

Points to be remembered:-

  1. Children learn well in mother tongue or home language
  2. Provide exposure to school language (regional/English)
  3. Aware school community to importance of language in child learning

Should a teacher use mother tongue /home language or English in the classroom for better learning? (P 15)

 Language should be learnt by processes in the following order: ‘Listen–speak–read–write.’

In early years focus should on listening and speaking as the major activities in the classroom.

Teacher should learn and use some words of children home language.

Teacher should encourage children to express in their own language.

Developing a better understanding is more important than use of language in a multilingual classroom.

How will a teacher fulfill the challenges of different kinds of learners (multiage grouping) in the classroom? (P 17)

ECCE teachers and caregivers would use the concept of ‘differentiation’ to meet the varying needs of their learners. An ECCE Teacher / Caregiver may approach differentiation by (1) content—what the child needs to learn or how the child will get access to the information; (2) process—activities in which the child engages in order to make sense of or master the content; (3) products—culminating projects that enable the child to rehearse, apply, and extend what he or she has learned in a topic; and (4) learning environment—the way the classroom/ ECCE centre works and feels. Research also indicates that the development of brain is influenced not only by health, nutrition and quality of care but also the quality of psycho-social environment the child is exposed to in these early years.

Hard work is the only key to succeed

Quality to qualify an entrance examination lies in aspiring candidate’s nature of working hard. S/he works hard, practice more and believes in himself. S/he keeps trying for the better outcome. We could not find any magic other than having positive attitude for consistently working hard.

 Ramneek (AIR 2, 2018), who is from Punjab’s Bhatinda, said she owed her success to her hard work and regular studies. She said she prepared notes regularly, cleared doubts from faculties and focused on National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) books. (Hindustan Times). Result of hard work can be felt in Ramneek attitude to excel in academics.  She not only secured 97.6% in class 12th board exam but also brought laurels by securing AIR 10 in NEET 2018.

Mehak Arora (AIR 3, 2018) had secured AIR 31 in NEET as well. “I would put in six to seven hours of self-study. I suggest that all those preparing for these exams should stay focused but at the same time, must not take any stress,” Mehak said.( Indian Express)

Social Media

Individual uniqueness lies in handling difficult tasks in own style. A number of toppers who secured 1 to 10 ranks at national level in NEET, JEE advanced and 12th class board examination endorsed that they did not use mobile phone so much and hardly operated social account. They were not active on any social media account. In fact, everyone has only 24 hours in a day. Students have to attend school, and coaching. They have to do self study for completing other academic works.

Amitabh Chauhan (AIR 5, 2018) had earlier secured the 34th rank in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). He shared his secret behind this gala success with national newspaper Indian Express. He said, “I am happy. Two years of hard work has paid off. AIIMS Delhi was my goal,” he said, adding that he put in around 10 to 12 hours of study every day and giving up on using a Smartphone as he often got “jealous” over his friends’ lives on social media, something he hoped to continue as he liked to live in the “real world”.  All India Topper Eliza Bansal accepted the fact to keep herself away from social media platform. She said “In two years, I have not used any mobile phone and not even have account on any social media site.”

Hard work, self study, command on basic key concepts, thorough revision of complete syllabus, solving previous years question paper and practicing mock test regularly are ultimate ways for qualifying any difficult entrance test on national level. As Eliza Bansal endorsed that she had given thorough revision to her syllabus and concentrated in clearing basic concepts. Continuously working hard for qualifying an entrance examination is sole quality of an aspiring candidate. S/he works hard, practice more and believes in himself. S/he keeps trying for the better outcome.

Notebook Correction Benefits of Teacher’s Remarks on Student’s Exercise Book for Effective Teaching

Notebook Correction Benefits of Teacher’s Remark on Students’ Exercise book for Effective Learning

21st Century world redefined the role of a teacher. Now we know a teacher as a facilitator, motivator, and catalyst of learning. Teacher teaches different individuals. He tries to fulfill the learning need of students. Since, learning is a complex phenomena, wise teacher adopts various techniques to involve individuals to participate actively in teaching and learning process. Students prepare notes and solve exercises in their notebooks. Notebook is authentic evidence of student’s learning for teacher, school and parent.

 Wise teacher identifies students’ personality through their notebooks. Students’ learning attitude reflects in their notebooks. Notebooks are great source of learning for students. Notebooks are crucial source of learning evidence in school based education system. Teacher initiates proper and suitable learning through school notebook. Concerned subject teacher frequently checks students’ notebook to ensure quality learning. The main motto of notebook correction is to ensure accurate learning. Each student is not capable to write correct i.e. while writing question-answer, preparing notes for further revision and examination preparation. Teacher writes remarks on students’ notebook for various purposes.

Why does a teacher write remarks on students’ notebooks? Does teacher’s remark on notebook have positive/negative impact on students’ learning? Do students notice teacher’s remark on his/her notebooks? Do teachers need to remind on his/her remarks written on student’s notebook?

Impact of teacher’s remark on student’s notebook

Teacher facilitates learning in the classroom. Teacher’s remark on students’  notebook has great impact. Teacher’s precise and lucid remark on student’s notebook has long lasting impact on his mind. It helps teacher to develop a rapport with student. Generally student ignores the remarks of a teacher written for asking i.e. complete pending work/improve your handwriting/ well done/late submission etc. Do you think that teacher’s accountability and responsibility complete, the moment s/he wrote remarks (vague/clear) on the notebook? Do you think that teacher needs to follow on next term and remind him to work on last remarks?

Clear objective before writing remarks on student’s notebook

Improvement in desired weak academic area is main motto behind writing remarks on students’ notebook while checking regular exercise, notes, project work and assignment etc. Students work hard, practice more and perform well to get good remarks from his subject teacher. It is wonderful endorsement of students’ hard work received from an educator.  If teacher is very clear in his demand from student to follow certain instruction for following reasons, then there is no question that student will not do it. Yes, possibility of ignorance may be there but it is the teacher who motivates students and convinces him for following given instruction written on their notebooks.  Are we clear before writing remarks on students’ notebook while checking various solved exercises?

General and Specific Remarks

Generally teacher’s remark on notebook falls into two categories that are ‘general remarks and specific remark’. General remarks motivates student to perform better in general i.e. well done! You always submit your notebook on time. Specific remarks requires student’s special attention for working immediately on mentioned area i.e. complete question no.16 and try to write your own view and submit on 22 September 2018.

Teacher’s remark makes a great impact

Teacher’s positive remarks on the notebook effectively make a great appeal and sense in the student’s mind. Teacher makes his learners sensible. He writes rational, relevant and concrete remark on student’s notebook. Teacher should write detail comments to sensitize the students. Writing details comments/remarks do not help until we do proper follow up as a reminder. When we do regular follow up; student thinks that my teacher still remembers my mistakes.

Praise the quality of the work not the individual

Praise the quality of the work not the individual. Please indicate what is good about the work i.e. meaningful question/handwriting/good content etc. Sometimes, general remarks may confuse student. A wise teacher continuously observes student’s mistakes in his concerned subject. S/he knows the student’s nature of committing mistakes i.e. whether student’s handwriting is poor/write wrong spelling frequently/ problem in framing accurate and meaningful sentences/ grammatical mistakes. Wise teacher finds out student’s pattern of committing mistakes on different occasions.  Teacher writes specific remarks for curing special problems faced by students. Teacher uses very specific comments about student’s specific strengths and weakness detected on his notebooks.

Point out Student’s weakness and strength

Concerned teacher focuses on student’s weakness and strength. S/he pin points only certain area where student needs to work hard for real improvement. Wise teacher writes precise remarks on the basis of his observation. In fact, it is worth enough to write specific need based analysis remark on student’s exercise books. Different subject has different pattern of questions i.e. a number of diagram and scientific terminology in biology, several theories and formulas and a set of pattern to solve mathematical questions, a number of diagrams and maps in geography, grammatical accuracy and writing pattern in languages. Wise teacher writes special comments on students’ exercise books for bringing improvement in the weakest area and for bringing sharpness in the strongest area also.

How will you help students who are struggling with their writing?

Several times student does not want to work. He simply ignores teacher’s remark or may be given different excuses on different occasions?  How will you help students who are struggling with their writing? Teacher finds out causes behind repetitive ignorance by the student. If a teacher reaches out the real problem, s/he considers some smart tools and techniques to solve the problems of ignorance. Our main motto is to motivate student to work out for better improvement on existing problems. Sometimes wise teacher involves his colleagues to find out problems and also find out solution. Sometimes educator increases parental involvement for better result but we cannot leave student on his fate or stamp him as stagnant learners. Merely writing remarks on students’ notebook without proper follow up and reminder is merely wastage of time. Teacher’s task is to find out not only mistakes but to provide adequate support to make student a better learner.

Teacher cannot be a magician. S/he cannot bring massive change in student’s present learning capability, learning styles and learning interest with immediate effect. In fact, it is a time taking process. Teacher’s remark on student’s notebook works as energy drinks. Written remarks on student’s notebook and reminder to follow in an interval facilitate him to work on it. The day student starts taking initiative to follow educator’s suggestion homeopathic effect start taking place in terms of positive outcome. Student’s notebook is authentic evidence of qualitative learning for the teacher, school and parent. Do you think so?
