Obviously, teachers have a huge role to play in order to make student's academic life successful. For students, teachers will always be the guide to success because they provide proper guidance and vital support that students require to excel academically. One of the most obvious truths and the fact that behind every single student who succeeds in school, college or university is teachers. Students academic life will be distressing and complicated if they don't have proficient, caring, supportive and experienced teachers. The success of every school and students depend greatly on teachers. Students should respect and value their teachers if they wish to get better academic outcomes.
Teachers support students to get to their dreams, goals and wishes. Teachers work, day in, day out, by building a bridge in order to aid the students to achieve their dreams. Teachers offer an opportunity for every student to learn better and become what they desire to be in their life. The main aim to every teacher will be offering help to their students so as to achieve more. Teachers support their students both in and out of the classroom for gaining better academic results. Teachers generally motivate their students to find out a goal, stick to their aims, and accomplish their objective by prevailing over every obstacle.

An education system that values creativity is one that makes a deliberate effort to spark thoughtfulness and independent thinking, teaches students how to learn, instills a lifelong love of learning, pushes students to find their own interpretations, and guides the development of a strong moral compass. Creativity in education has to do with a constructivist approach to education, where learning is an active, contextualized process of knowledge construction that builds on prior knowledge, social interaction and authentic tasks, rather than the passive receiving of information.

Technology has touched not one but every single vertical the world operates in. Education today is not restricted to the four walls of the classrooms of yesterday where the exchange of ideas was restricted to the typically recommended books and hard-coded courses. The 21st century has necessitated utilisation of the largest reservoir of information- The World Wide Web; thus, creating an ecosystem of opinions, beliefs and considerations of what we know as modern education. Since every speck and particle now exists in a huge cloud called the ‘internet’, why not consider an amalgamation of cloud sourcing and technology with our educational system? Why not make classrooms ‘Smarter’. Since the concept of digital is now introduced to us, anyone, anywhere across the globe can now access, gain and share the learnings and experiences across the 3-billion internet users who are also constantly adding their bits to the information pool. Books have now changed to e-books, personal computers to tablets, blackboard to a whiteboard which is connected to a projector, and 2D to 3D learning.
Rich multimedia material for student makes Smart Classroom more co-operative and interesting. Its basic constituents are a personal computer, projector, and interactive white board. With this impression, a class can now virtually elucidate a simple chemical reaction between two compounds via YouTube, the geography of rivers can be understood through Google Maps and lectures presented via Skype, which saves time and avoids hardships of travel. Today, many universities and educational institutions provide global programmes riding on the back of these technologies making it possible for people from different parts of the world, sitting in different time zones be able to access content at the same time. Today, the art of educating in smart classrooms is happening more through screens- be it television, laptop or films. Basis the promise that the industry shows, a wide variety of companies have started investing in this direction- anti glare screens, projectors, interactive white boards, video access, learning capsules- you name it and the industry is getting more and more robust. Companies like BenQ that holds the top position in projectors market, are providing bright solutions to the classroom as well. Educators and administrators are enhancing learning with the help of BenQ projection systems.

How children learn through play
Young children are learning and developing quickly. They are playing, learning and experimenting. They are also beginning to get a sense of their own identity and how they may be different from others, such as noticing boys and girls. Some children benefit from being at a nursery or playgroup at this age. Organized activities help develop their learning in an informal setting. In turn, this is preparing them for more formal school life. Cultural identity is important. Children need to have people around them that they can identify with and who have an understanding of their cultural and ethnic background.
How do young children learn?
Children learn through all their senses by:
- tasting, touching, seeing, hearing and smelling
- watching and copying people close to them they learn language and behavior
Learning through play
Play is one of the main ways in which children learn. It helps to build self-worth by giving a child a sense of his or her own abilities and to feel good about themselves. Because it’s fun, children often become very absorbed in what they are doing. In turn, this helps them develop the ability to concentrate. Providing children with a range of playthings will help them learn in a number of ways:
With the new government, a lot of positivity has seeped in the Indian markets. It has given a boost to the manufacturing, retail and all the other sectors of the country. One such extremely successful sector is the hospitality sector of India with highly profitable industries, contributing significant amount of foreign exchange to the economy. Hotels are extremely important component of tourism industry and they contribute to the sector by offering services and facilities of extremely high standard.
The rise of hospitality business has provided lot of opportunities for students to build their careers in the sector. International hotel management institutes have come in India to nurture the best-in-class professionals, hospitality leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow with its unique curriculum, highly specialized learning facilitators and state-of-the-art facilities,.
A good hotel management institute helps the students to develop excellent management, time management, interpersonal and research skills, and good interpersonal skills. A good hotel manager knows how to delegate, but always keeps a close eye on every aspect of the business - kitchen, service, cleaning, maintenance, front desk etc. - and is always moving, always in touch with staff and guests.
Professional Development for Teachers! Am I joking? Do our teachers really require further development? Well often we will here “Our teachers” knows the subject in and out. They have been into these for many years. They are experienced. They do not need any kind of training, coaching and handholding.
Friends are we been fair to the teachers. Can we have a profession where training is absolutely not required? Are our teachers or would be teachers well equipped to handle the continual socio economic and technological changes in our society.
Today’s kids are a different kind of species. They are exposed to Television, Internet, Mobile and mobile applications, gaming, internet and social media and what not. The youngest of the kid’s brain hold information load which is mind blowing. As a parent or a teacher, we, really do not know what a child in the classroom is aware of! They surprise us every moment. Their curiosity and eagerness to fast track learning is outstanding.
We often hear about the death of the reading habit among students. You’d think that even seventy years ago, students would have loved to spend their time reading books because they were luckily spared from the common distractions of our day and age: the internet, television and video games. Right? Wrong.
Celebrated author Ruskin Bond was a student in 1950, and he says that reading, even back then, was cherished by only a few students. He was more specific: out of 35 students in a class, around 2-3 actually liked reading books.
If the reading habit is always skating on thin ice, then why should the current generation of students be nagged for not reading enough books? Why is reading so important?
Studies show that early reading can have a major impact on a child's reading and writing abilities, comprehension, vocabulary and self-confidence. It also provides them with a better understanding of other cultures, increases social participation and enables a greater insight into human nature and decision-making.
The International Reading Association (IRA) gives us, a rather prophetic quote:
Over the last few years the classrooms and the technology landscape has been shifting faster than ever. The availability and use of technology is driving educators and administrators to move away from traditional learning and pursue the concept of “flipped learning.” Many educators are experimenting with the idea of a flipped classroom model. So what is it and why is everyone talking about it?
Flipped learning is the concept of turning traditional education on its head, lectures are pre-recorded and viewed remotely outside of the classroom. Students can do their work collaboratively in the classroom rather than independently at home. The gaining of interaction and hands-on experience between students and teachers allows for students to grasp knowledge and build skills in ways that work for them.
Helping to drive flipped learning into educational institutions is the fact that more often than not students are leaving the pen and paper at home and bringing their personal device such as laptops, tablets, and mobiles devices to the classroom. Adopting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in education environment is not sort of “empty talk”!
This is from a study done at Clintondale High School, Outside Detroit.
