4. CCE

4.1. Dominant Traditions

4.1.1. Mimetic The idea that the purpose of education is to transmit specific knowledge to students. This used the didactic method, which relies on lectures or presentations as the main type of communication. The assumption is that the process of education is a transfer of information from the teacher to the student. There is a focus on rational sequencing and assessment.

4.1.2. Transformative The idea that the purpose of education is to change the student in meaningful way This involves a more multidimensional theory of teaching. There is a rejection of the authoritarian relationship between teacher and student. They argue that learning and teaching are connected, that it is not just a transfer of knowledge, but a conversation between teacher and student. The use of questioning is very important in this tradition. They believe that the active participation of the student is important.

5. NCF 2005

5.1. Questions every school/teacher should ask

5.1.1. What educational purposes should the schools seek to achieve?

5.1.2. What educational experiences can be provided that are likely to achieve these purposes?

5.1.3. How can these educational experiences be meaningfully organized?

5.1.4. How do we ensure that these educational purposes are indeed being accomplished?

5.2. We need to think beyond textbooks and examinations

5.2.1. In its report, Learning Without Burden, the committee pointed out that learning at school cannot become a joyful experience unless we change our perception of the child as a receiver of knowledge and move beyond the convention of using textbooks as the basis for examination.

5.3. Learning for the sake of being examined

5.3.1. Learning for the sake of being examined in a mechanical manner takes away the joy of being young, and delinks school knowledge from everyday experience.

5.4. Inflexibility … Resistant to change

5.4.1. The school system is characterized by an inflexibility that makes it resistant to change

5.5. Isolated activity… no link with real life

5.5.1. Learning has become an isolated activity, which does not encourage children to link knowledge with their lives in any organic or vital way

5.6. Discourage creative thinking

5.6.1. Schools promote a regime of thought that discourages creative thinking and insights

5.7. Bypasses vital dimension

5.7.1. What is presented and transmitted in the name of learning in schools bypasses vital dimensions of the human capacity to create new knowledge

5.8. Need for change in the social ethos

5.8.1. Learning Without Burden recommended a major change in the design of syllabi and textbooks, and also a change in the social ethos, which places stress on children to become aggressively competitive and exhibit precocity.

5.9. Need for change in curriculum and examination

5.9.1. To make teaching a means of harnessing the child’s creative nature, the report recommended a fundamental change in the matter of organizing the school curriculum, and also in the system of examination, which forces children to memorize information and to reproduce it.

5.10. Guidelines of NCF

5.10.1. connecting knowledge to life outside the school,

5.10.2. ensuring that learning is shifted away from rote methods,

5.10.3. enriching the curriculum to provide for overall development of children rather than remain textbook centric,

5.10.4. making examinations more flexible and integrated into classroom life.

5.11. Importance of Quality of Teachers

5.11.1. No system of education can rise above the quality of its teachers, and the quality of teachers greatly depends on the means deployed for selection, procedures used for training, and the strategies adopted for ensuring accountability.

5.12. Aims of Education… creative pattern

5.12.1. Educational aims turn the different activities undertaken in schools and other educational institutions into a creative pattern and give them the distinctive character of being ‘educational’.

5.13. We need to understand what the child is capable of learning

5.13.1. It involves careful observation of the given conditions to see what means are available for reaching the end, and to discover the hindrances in the way. This may require a careful study of children, and understanding of what they are capable of learning at different ages.

5.14. Child is a natural learner

5.14.1. The child as a natural learner, and knowledge as the outcome of the child’s own activity

5.15. Exploring, responding, inventing…

5.15.1. In our everyday lives outside the school, we enjoy the curiosity, inventiveness and constant querying of children. They actively engage with the world around them, exploring, responding, inventing and working things out, and making meaning

5.16. Move away from textbook culture

5.16.1. Our current concern in curriculum development and reform is to make it an inclusive and meaningful experience for children, along with the effort to move away from a textbook culture.

5.17. Fundamental change in how we think

5.17.1. This requires a fundamental change in how we think of learners and the process of learning. Hence the need to engage in detail with the underpinnings and implications of ‘child centered’ education.

5.18. Build on their active and creative capabilities

5.18.1. we need to nurture and build on their active and creative capabilities—their inherent interest in making meaning, in relating to the world in ‘real’ ways through acting on it and creating, and in relating to other humans.

5.19. Find their voices and nurture their curiosity

5.19.1. When children speak, they are usually only answering the teacher’s questions or repeating the teacher’s words. They rarely do things, nor do they have opportunities to take initiative. The curriculum must enable children to find their voices, nurture their curiosity—to do things, to ask questions and to pursue investigations, sharing and integrating their experiences with school knowledge—rather than their ability to reproduce textual knowledge.

5.20. Fear, discipline & stress… detrimental to learning

5.20.1. Children will learn only in an atmosphere where they feel they are valued. Our schools still do not convey this to all children. The association of learning with fear, discipline and stress, rather than enjoyment and satisfaction, is detrimental to learning

5.21. Examination related stress require urgent attention

5.21.1. The boundaries of the school need to become more porous to the community. At the same time, the problems of curriculum load and examination-related stress require urgent attention in all their dimensions

5.22. Learning can take place with or without mediation

5.22.1. Learning can take place with or without mediation. In the case of the latter, the social context and interactions, especially with those who are capable, provide avenues for learners to work at cognitive levels above their own.

5.23. Connecting new ideas with existing ideas

5.23.1. Learners actively construct their own knowledge by connecting new ideas to existing ideas on the basis of materials /activities presented to them (experience).

5.24. The teacher is a facilitator

5.24.1. The teacher is a facilitator who encourages learners to reflect, analyze and interpret in the process of knowledge construction

5.25. Teaching according to the needs and demands of children’s learning

5.25.1. There is a need for incorporating flexibility in planning and adapting textbook content to designing topic learning, so as to move towards the NPE-86 goal of breaking out of watertight compartments. For this, it is necessary to build the capabilities and confidence of teachers to autonomously plan their teaching in response to the needs and demands of children’s learning
