‘The destiny of India is being shaped in her classroom’
“A teacher has to have the energy of the hottest volcano, the memory of an Elephant and the diplomacy of an ambassador”! With nothing more than a pen in hand a teacher affects eternity, assisting humanity in the noblest way possible. Through the crayon scribble, ink blot, paper plane, anecdote, song and learning filled epoch called school life, our teachers stand out in our memory. Each one helps us to realize a facet of ourselves which unlocks our true potential by motivating us to dream big, open the parachute and reach our destines.

The goal of “Education for All” can be best realized through committed and sensitized teachers. Though teaching has always been regarded as a noble profession yet in the past few decades owing to falling standards and salaries, which were often not commensurate with the job, many talented people had been deterred from becoming teachers. Recent years have witnessed a reversal in this situation.

However, invariably the response of dedicated teachers is that the immense satisfaction derived from the process of...

Instructional Design

What is Instructional Design ?

The education and training sector has recognized the emerging power of the Internet and this has helped breakdown the traditional barriers of time and place for the delivery of education. Trends that show this is true:

  • Companies that traditionally developed computer-based training modules and CD-ROMs are now developing hybrid modules that can be accessible with an Internet browser.
  • Educators and trainers are now using HTML-editors and common web publishing tools to post class notes, assignments, case studies, video clips, and animations on Intranets or the Internet in support of classroom activities.
  • Corporate training is the “in-thing” now. Organizations are now developing media-rich, just-in-time support systems to distribute knowledge within the company and also bring their employees up-to-speed on new technologies
  • Virtual on-line universities are offering entire credit courses using Internet technologies. The Internet is the favored delivery channel of choice today.
  • Software development companies who’ve seen the trend have developed advanced learning environments that combine powerful Internet collaboration tools like email, synchronous and asynchronous discussion, shared work spaces, video conferencing, and so on.

Knowledge Leadership

What is Knowledge leadership ?

Knowledge is an essential part of our individual and organizational ability to innovate, compete and succeed.

Superior competencies in knowledge and information management are crucial to business success in the global economy. These competencies enable organisations to make sense of the increasing complexity and change in their business and socio-political environments; to make sound decisions under conditions of uncertainty; and to innovate and implement on the basis of distinctive knowledge and expertise. True knowledge-based organisations develop their knowledge and information management practices as a generic core competence that supports and enhances all their business processes.

They remain at the cutting edge of their respective disciplines through ongoing research, training and application in their respective disciplines.

This is the beginning of a new era in which individuals are leading rather than managing knowledge. In the past, many knowledge-based initiatives have failed because leaders underestimated the powerful link between knowledge and performance improvement – and also because...

Knowledge Management

What is Knowledge Management ?

We live in a post-industrial society where knowledge is being increasingly recognized as a primary source of wealth. Today, economies that can efficiently exploit their knowledge resources are increasingly doing better than those that have abundant natural resources but lack in such skills.

Thus, Knowledge Management is the process through which organizations generate value from their intellectual and knowledge-based assets. While Knowledge Management is often facilitated by IT, technology by itself is not Knowledge Management.

A Knowledge Manager takes the key responsibility of facilitating the ongoing process of knowledge sharing and knowledge renewal for facilitating innovative thinking and creativity while also optimising efficiency.

Human skills, intuition, and wisdom are fast becoming the most precious corporate resource. Knowledge managers seek to disperse those assets throughout the company and spin them into innovations. As we transition from an era of information scarcity to information glut, there is need for re-focusing on processes underlying decisions, choices, and performance. In increasingly uncertain and complex business environments dynamically evolving performance outcomes are the key drivers of how...

Knowledge Process Outsourcing

What is Knowledge Process Outsourcing ?

In this millennium of the mind, an emerging career opportunity is “knowledge process outsourcing.” It is the next step up from business process outsourcing that has grown so rapidly in recent years. Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) refers to knowledge-intensive work that involves specialized domain expertise. High value processes that fall into this realm are: valuation; scientific research; investment researches; patent filing; and legal and insurance claim analysis.

The movement of knowledge outsourcing activities, especially those in India, has been in the news for quite some time. Although much of the U.S. offshoring debate has focused on call centers and other relatively low-skilled work, Indian companies have been developing their software services capacity for more than a decade. General Electric began working with Indian firms in the early 1990s and opened a large technology center in Bangalore in 2000.

Special Education

What is Special Education ?

Muskaan, a fifth grader, has trouble hearing. But thanks to a special headset that her teacher wears, she is able to hear his voice. She raises her hand often during discussions, her eyes bright with curiosity. Rohit, a second grader, avoids the writing lesson, and instead talks loudly to his aide. Rohit has Asperger’s syndrome, which makes it hard for him to socialize. After several weeks, with skilled help from his teacher and instructional assistant, he is able to write alongside his classmates.

If you like the idea of helping children with special needs such as these, you could consider becoming a special education teacher.

They have been called the children of a lesser God and would be deprived of any quality of life, if it were not for the special care and attention they receive from the special educationists. Special education refers to the education of mentally and physically challenged children. It is specially designed instruction for students with exceptional learning needs to help them realise their potential and capabilities. All children...
