  • The National Knowledge Commission (NKC) has
    observed that teachers are the single most
    important element of the education system and the
    country is already facing a severe shortage of
    qualified and motivated teachers at different
  • The training of teachers is a major area of
    concern at present as both pre-service and
    in-service training of teachers are extremely
    inadequate and poorly managed in most states.
  • Pre-service training needs to be improved and
    differently regulated both in public and private

  • Pre-service training needs to be improved and
    differently regulated both in public and private
    institutions, NCTFE 2009 emphasised ICT in
    schooling as well as e-learning became centre
    stage in the frame work.
  • ICT has become an integral part of todays
    teaching learning process.
  • Countries across the world are using ICT in
    facilitating information dissemination and
    communication in all areas of education and
  • Effective use of technology can motivate
    students, make our classes more dynamic and
    interesting, and renew teacher enthusiasm as they
    learn new skills and techniques. Technology is
    also helping the students to understand any
    abstract concepts clearly.

  • The integration of ICTs in teaching in general
    and teacher education in particular is the need
    of the day. The use of ICTs can make substantial
    changes both for teaching and training mainly in
    two ways.
  • Firstly, the rich representation of information
    changes learners perception and understanding of
    the context.
  • Secondly, the vast distribution and easy access
    to information can change relationships between
    teachers and taught. ICTs can also provide
    powerful support for educational innovation.

Teacher Education Reform Context and Concerns
  • Time is not sufficient most of the teacher
    educators felt that comprehensive Experiences
    cant be given in the one year duration of
    teacher training course and was very difficult to
    imbibe skills and aptitude. It was also opined
    there was a mismatch between the training student
    teachers get in the colleges with the real
    teaching Experience they had in the regular
  • On supportive to the above statements the
    Honourable Justice Verma committee proposed to
    have 2 years B.Ed. course and NCTE has suggested
    to have the Blend of technology (ICT) with all
    subjects and Experiences of training.

  • Why do we need ICT?
  • The face of classroom is changing. The teachers
    should prepare to keep up with technology utility
    in the classroom. ICT is not only an essential
    tool for teachers in their day to day work, but
    also offers them opportunities for their own
    professional development.
  • In conventional teaching most of the time is
    consumed for the input output and less time left
    for the process. But in teaching with ICT the
    input and output time is reduced and process time
    is increased. When the process time is increased,
    time of students activities, discussion,
    correlation with other subjects, brainstorming
    and learning etc will increase.

Approaches of ICT
  • approaches to ICT which can be used in the
  • 1.Integrated approach This aims at planning the
    use of ICT within the subject to enhance
    particular concepts and skills and improve
    pupils achievement. This involves, Selecting the
    suitable ICT resources which will contribute to
    the aims and objectives of the curriculum.
  • 2.Enhancement Approach this focus on the use of
    an ICT resource will enhance the existing subject
    matter through some aspects of the lessons and
    tasks. Eg. Using an electronic whiteboard for
    presenting a theory about a topic.
  • 3.Complementary approach This aims at using an
    ICT resource to empower the students learning,
    Eg. By enabling them to improve their class work
    by taking notes on the computer or by sending
    home work by email to the teacher from home.

  • To effectively harness the power of the new
    information and communication technologies (ICTs)
    to improve learning, the following essential
    conditions must be met
  • Students and teachers must have sufficient access
    to digital technologies and the Internet in their
    classrooms, schools, and teacher education
  • High quality, meaningful, and culturally
    responsive digital content must be available for
    teachers and learners.
  • Teachers must have the knowledge and skills to
    use the new digital tools and resources to help
    all students achieve high academic standards.
