Principal of MAM college wins institutional leadership award

M.A.M. Maluk Mohamed, principal, MAM College of Engineering, has won institutional leadership award, one of the global e-learning awards constituted by World Education Congress (WEC).

Mr. Maluk Mohamed received the award at a function organised under the aegis of WEC recently in Mumbai.

The WEC, an annual rendezvous for discussion among partner countries on ‘evolving trends in education’ constituted the awards to appreciate group and individual talents. Global e-learning award recognises the most successful and innovative application to the delivery of education and training.

Through examining modern and traditional knowledge system, the WEC explores how education can help develop mental, emotional and physical skills to facilitate personal excellence, and psychological and socio-economic well-being in the challenging global scenario. Besides networking opportunities, the conference offered unique in-depth approaches to understanding important academic issues that affect an institution's viability in today's fast-paced business environment, Mr. Maluk Mohamed said.

The main focus areas of WEC 2012, that had the participation of experts from 88 countries, constituted influencing the evolving culture of education and educational pedagogy, with the objective of deep systemic change; building on a vision and strategies for higher education institutes; providing exposure to latest education tools, technologies and solutions; and encouraging collaboration and partnership among institutions.

These goals were realised through a conference-cum-exhibition titled ‘Learn Tech’. The Global eLearning Awards gallery displayed all entries that make inspiring work beyond easily accessible for peer learning. The awards were given under organisational and individual categories. E-learning, commonly referred to the intentional use of networked information, was viewed from the dimensions of online learning, virtual learning, distributed learning, networked or web-based learning.

The themes of this year congress were on “Learning in the 21st Century: Right and Access to Education” and “New Paradigms and Models for Education”.

“Enrol children with disabilities in schools”

Children with physical and intellectual disabilities can enjoy the benefits of school education along with additional privileges by enrolling in school. A campaign by 1,000 school kids from various panchayat primary schools around Manachanallur demanded parents not to confine differently abled children at home.

A rally taken out by kids from panchayat union schools in Manachanallur, Thirunagar, Thirupanjeelai and Ayyampalayam on Monday was a bid to ensure their counterparts with disabilities got to go to school with them. Inclusive education ensures not only education but various benefits that parents are unaware of, said Kalaranjini, coordinator, inclusive education coordinator.

The awareness campaign to be conducted in two phases is a precursor to a medical camp that would be held a week later.

The camp would identify children with cerebral palsy, autism, orthopaedic, visual, hearing and mental disabilities.

Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan which envisages education for all provides assistive devices, free medical camps, national identity cards, ramps and special toilets. Day care centres offer protection and care for children with disabilities who do not have care-takers at home.

Varsity surprised by NAAC’s poor ranking of Academic Staff College

Bharathidasan University has expressed surprise over the “quite low” score awarded by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) to its Academic Staff College (ASC).

According to S.Aruchamy, Registrar In-Charge, the score was not matching with the report submitted by the NAAC Peer Team. The review report of the ASC, he pointed out, looked “very positive” with “several compliments” and “good remarks” about the performance of ASC.

“We are trying to get in touch with the NAAC, Bangalore, to check about the methodology of scoring and any possible errors, and ways to rectify it,” Mr.Aruchamy said in a press release.

Infy’s Kris to pitch in for Tamil Nadu IT institute
Infosys’s Kris Gopalakrishnan is a busy man. After committing to invest in Kerala’s Startup Village, he has offered to pitch in, again in his personal capacity, for an IIIT being set up at Srirangam, the constituency of Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa. The state government is setting up the institution — in which the Centre is also involved along with private participants — through the PPP model. The TN government has also sought participation from Infosys, which is yet to reply. However, it is happy that one of the company’s luminaries is keen on the project.

Saksham equips non-IT teachers with ICT skills

Saksham, a faculty empowerment programme supported by the State government in association with Microsoft Corporation India Pvt Ltd., would serve as a sound platform for non-IT teachers to acquire basic awareness in the field of ICT and utilise the latest technologies for the benefit of students, T. S. Sridhar, Secretary of Higher Education, said on Monday.

Mr. Sridhar was addressing through audio conference a group of 23 teachers drawn from the university departments and its constituent colleges for the training programme conducted at the university’s informatics centre.

Bharathidasan University and Quaid-E-Millath College for Women, Chennai, are the two nodal centres identified by the State government for implementing the programme meant to enable teachers to enhance their learning, and build core skills to contribute more to society.

Tamil Nadu has been showcased well as a destination for IT investments by the Chief Minister, and that has transformed the State into a modern economy.

Vision 2023 envisions making Tamil Nadu a knowledge capital and innovation hub in the country through making available trained, knowledgeable and skilled manpower under its education and skills mission, by way of such ‘train the trainers’ programmes, he said.

Presiding over the valedictory session, Vice Chancellor K. Meena said participants were equipped with basic computing skills such as word processing, spreadsheets and presentations as well as advanced IT skills like collaboration, content sharing and cloud computing using Office web applications, Skydrive and Office 365.

They were now able to create e-content using Microsoft’s Learning Content Development System (LCDS) and implement them in the classroom.

Microsoft’s assistive technologies helped them understand the methodology of extending the benefits of IT to hearing impaired and visually challenged learners, she said.

Besides, the 10-day programme had components in soft skills trainings to make educators effective mentors and collaborators.

The educators are motivated and developed collaboration skills, communication skills, planning skills, and creative and critical thinking skills.

The nodal officer for the programme in Bharathidasan University, K. Balasubramani, of department of geography also addressed the participants.

Option for lateral entry endears students to ITIs

As was only to be expected, the number of applicants for the Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) at Tiruverumbur here witnessed a quantum leap compared to last year.

Compared to 6,000 last year, there were 7,500 applicants this time.

The rise in patronage was due to the scope created last year for lateral entry into second year in polytechnic colleges for students who complete two year ITI programme, and the government's decision to provide the students with a set of free uniform and a pair of shoes, according to Bosco, principal of ITI, Tiruverumbur.
