The importance of Education in an ideological state is very necessary; no one can progress without it towards the development of both in personal terms as well as a nation. Educational growth provides the base for both social and economic development. Low standards of the educational system may be one of the most important reasons for the downfall. In fact, Pakistan is losing its worth as an educated country.
“Education is the key to success”
Above is a statement that is always used for delivering a positive future of education for the students. We are living in a country where there is a heavy need for literate people.
When I talk to students from the local school’s schools today they say that they had to follow a certain curriculum that includes subjects from Urdu, English, science, and social studies. In past times it was necessary 35 years ago. School children nowadays are still being taught the same topics and are being pilled up with more and more work. Now if I review there is no difference in syllabus or curriculum. In 35 five years nothing has been changed .we are still standing in the era of 72 years before in our curriculums standard.
In this advanced era of information and technology, as professionals, we need to be more practical to re-evaluate what our children need to study. And as an elder sister, I can certify that our children’s education should be personalized.
They need to be taught the basics but they should also be taught skills that will be useful for them in near future. School students are measured by standardized tests that have become obsolete. These entrance exams and monthly tests were actionable 40 to 50 years ago. Now they hardly matter because a student is able to grasp more information due to cell phones and internet.
Instead of ignoring the obvious why not utilized the obvious. Teachers and mentors need to establish a learning plan for each student. SWOT(strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis for kids. This will help parents learn what are the key components that affect a child’s focusing power.
As we progress to a technology dependant future this will enable us to individualized assessments. Intelligent innovation will enable teachers to use the test scores to reveal a child’s learning journey and where they need assistance. Based on the information generated it will enable teachers to develop personalized learning plans for each student.
Thus lamenting on the idea that a teacher can teach each and every student. This process will be continuous. Every interaction will further inform parents and students where they stand. With cloud computing parents, teachers, and even principals can monitor child progress in real-time.
With these insights, teachers and parents will be able to enact more interventions for struggling students.
- Technical education should be made a part of secondary education. …
- Providing economic incentives to the students may encourage the parents to send their children to school and may help in reducing the dropout ratio.
- The local government system should be helpful in promoting education and literacy in the country.
Down the road, we will have the instruments to design and appraise improvement. Sharing is caring!
