சென்னை: தமிழகத்தில் கம்ப்யூட்டர் வழியிலான கல்வித் திட்டத்தை அமல்படுத்த முதல்வர் ஜெயலலிதா உத்தரவிட்டுள்ளார். 5 ஆண்டுகளில் 2341 பள்ளிகளில் இந்தத் திட்டத்தை அமல்படுத்த அரசு திட்டமிட்டுள்ளது.

இதுதொடர்பாக அரசு வெளியிட்டுள்ள செய்திக்குறிப்பு:

கல்வி சிறந்த தமிழ்நாடு என்ற பாரதியின் கூற்றினை மெய்ப்பிக்கும் வகையில் மாநிலத்தில் உள்ள பள்ளி மாணவ, மாணவியர்கள் தரமான கல்வியைப் பெற முதல்-அமைச்சர் ஜெயலலிதா தலைமையிலான அரசு பல்வேறு நடவடிக்கைகளை எடுத்து வருகின்றது.

தற்போதைய உலகம் கணினி உலகம். தற்பொழுது நடைபெறும் அன்றாட நடவடிக்கைகள் அனைத்தும் கணினியை சார்ந்தே அமைந்துள்ளது. எனவே மாணவர்களுக்கு கணினி வழி கல்வி வழங்குவது இன்றியமையாததாக உள்ளது.

இதன் அடிப்படையில், அனைவருக்கும் கணினி வழி கல்வி அளிக்கும் திட்டம் 5 ஆண்டு காலத்தில் 1880 மேல்நிலைப்பள்ளி மற்றும் 461 உயர்நிலைப் பள்ளி என மொத்தம் 2341 பள்ளிகளில் பூட் அடிப்படையில் நடைமுறைப்படுத்த முதல்-அமைச்சர் ஜெயலலிதா உத்தரவிட்டுள்ளார்.

இத்திட்டத்திற்காக முதல் தவணையாக 31 கோடியே 21 லட்சம் ரூபாய் நிதி ஒதுக்கீடு முதல்-அமைச்சர் ஜெயலலிதா ஆணையிட்டுள்ளார். மேலும், தமிழ்நாட்டில் நாமக்கல் மாவட்டம் ஆர்.புதுப்பாளையத்தில் உள்ள அரசு மேல்நிலைப்பள்ளி, தேனி மாவட்டம் பெரியகுளத்தில் உள்ள அரசு மகளிர் மேல்நிலைப்பள்ளி, விருதுநகர் மாவட்டம், வீரசோழனில் உள்ள அரசு மேல்நிலைப்பள்ளி, திண்டுக்கல் மாவட்டம் பழநியில் உள்ள அரசு மகளிர் மேல்நிலைப்பள்ளி, மதுரை மாவட்டம் மேலூரில் உள்ள அரசு மகளிர் மேல்நிலைப்பள்ளி ஆகிய 5 பள்ளிகளில் முதற்கட்டமாக 1 கோடியே 25 லட்சம் ரூபாய் செலவில் அறிவுசார் பள்ளிகள் (ஸ்மார்ட் பள்ளி) நிறுவுவதற்கு முதல்-அமைச்சர் ஜெயலலிதா உத்தரவிட்டுள்ளார்.

At B-Schools, students now opting for internships with BJP, CPM et al

MUMBAI: Last February, about 50 students from the Bharathidasan Institute of Management (BIM), Trichy, along with some 70 corporate executives sat through a conference in New Delhi on management challenges faced by political parties. Union minister Salman Khurshid, CPI National Secretary D Raja and BJP National Secretary Bhupendra Yadav discussed the deep, internal processes of their respective parties in the session titled 'Left, Right & Centre'.

This summer, Sandeep Pavan Kumar and Sujoy Biswas, two first-year BIM students signed up for internships with BJP. Sandeep and Sujoy's choice for internship mirrors the curiosity and enthusiasm among B-school students to explore politics as a classroom to learn management skills. This is hardly a mainstream trend yet, but for a fair sprinkling of students from IIMs in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and Calcutta, political parties are the new cool internship destination.

Many professors are encouraging the choice. "This is a promising possibility. It is in mutual interest. Parties will get an honest feedback from young students, who on the other hand can understand the political system better," says Anil Gupta, professor, IIM-A.

Win-Win Partnership

Adds A Nagarajan, director, BIM-Trichy: "Political internship will help students in learning to speak in a language that will have a greater connect with the common man."

Politicians also seem to fancy the idea. "This will change the traditional culture of Indian politics and streamline and civilise the political culture with involvement of professionals and managers," says Mukesh Shukla, secretary, New Delhi district, BJP. "Also, it will help students get in touch with ground realities and assist them in future analysis and decision making."

Sandeep and Sujoy will explore the saffron party's organisational structure, campaign strategy, parliamentary affairs and party activities, in their 6-8 week internship.

Recognising politics as a source of learning management concepts and processes, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, the country's top-ranking B-school, had four years ago placed one student for political internship with the CPM. It followed this up with six students in the next batch. They worked with a few members of parliament to look at constituency management.

This year again, a doctoral student conducted a case study on the work of an MP elected seven times from the same constituency in Ahmedabad. Two students of IIM-Calcutta had taken part in the 2011 assembly election campaign of Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and a few had earlier worked with BJP as interns.

"Winning an election is like competing in a market place and students can apply this learning to their future role as managers," says Anindya Sen, dean-academic, IIM-C. Professors, students, parties and even companies see this as a winwin partnership.

"Managerial training is about decision making. By interning in political organisations, students learn about society, consensus building, decision making and various other dynamics of organisation management," says Pankaj Chandra, director, IIM-B. Students from the institute regularly intern with political parties. "As execution ability becomes critical to the functioning of political parties, a market-driven pull will be created leading to more management professionals contributing to politics," says Abhishek Kumar, assistant professor at BIM-Trichy.

And companies too see value in this. A study conducted by BIM shows that companies encourage students to do their internship in political parties. "Students can learn about various leadership styles, team building, decision making and communication styles from political parties," says Sasi Kumar, vice-president-HR, Ashok Leyland John Deere Construction Equipment.

These programmes are being offered through IGNOU's Schools of Performing and Visual Arts; Social Work; Extension and Development Studies; Tourism and Hospitality Service Sectoral Management; Gender and Development Studies; Vocational Education and Training; and Law.

Such skill-oriented programmes serve as value addition for students to build their employability, M. Shanmugam, Regional Director of IGNOU's Madurai Regional Centre, said on Thursday, at a promotional meet at Bishop Heber College, where the university's study centre functions.

Open and distance learning system has evolved well with technology integration in the forms of e-learning, mobile learning, web-based learning, gyan darshan, and gyan vani. The university was reaching out to a large number of higher education aspirants as a means to expanding the gross enrolment ratio in higher education and enhancing employability, Mr. Shanmugam said. With 32 lakh students in its fold, IGNOU, known for its e-resource base and quality programmes with inbuilt flexibility, has 50 partner institutions across the world.

He released the common prospectus and handed over the first copy to the college vice principal C.J. Vijayan Kanagaraj in the presence of Deputy Regional Director of IGNOU Madurai Regional Centre, and J. Godwin Premsingh, coordinator, Tiruchi Study Centre at Bishop Heber College.

Later talking to presspersons, Mr. Shanmugam said the convergence programmes leading to additional qualifications for students were now being patronised well by colleges.

So far, 120 inmates of the central jails in Madurai, Tiruchi, and Coimbatore have enrolled for IGNOU's programmes offered free of cost to them, he said, adding that the special study centres at the jails would enrol more number of candidates in the coming academic year.

Under Sarva Siksha Abhiyan, the IGNOU was training 1,200 special education teachers every year through a tie-up with Rehabilitation Council of India. In the 17 districts under the jurisdiction of Madurai Regional Centre, IGNOU has tie-ups with 30 community colleges to offer industry-oriented programmes, he said.

Mr. Godwin Premsingh said there was high demand for IGNOU's programmes in creative writing, business skills and NGO management at the Tiruchi Centre, and apprised the student gathering about a new certificate in entrepreneurship programme.

School heads trained at BIM

Managerial training imparted by Bharathidasan Institute of Management (BIM) to headmasters of high schools has equipped them to handle pressure better.

The residential training imparted under Rastriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan (RMSA) to 180 school heads from various parts of the State covered modules on personal management, inter-personal relations, soft skills development, and educational management.

The programme conducted for the participants in four batches at the Irrigation Management Training Institute, Thuvakudi, concluded last week. The training duration was four days for each batch.

A first of its kind for BIM too, the training, according to programme coordinator Nagarani Muthusamy, helped in giving clarity about their roles while discharging duties, through appropriate decisions that would fulfil the expectations of the government and the public.

The programme was wholesome in that social workers, medical professionals and lawyers engaged the headmasters to explain more about first aid, Right to Information Act, Right to Education Act and other issues concerning the running of a school. “The BIM customised the training programmes for the school heads so as to enable them understand issues in a scientific way,” said Prof. Nagarani.

GATE commands more patronage

Patronage for GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) has apparently increased what with public sector undertakings, including Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, and Powergrid, recruiting candidates for positions of engineer trainee, graduate apprentice engineers and executive trainees respectively, based on the score in the All India examination.

Awareness of GATE, administered and conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science and seven Indian Institutes of Technology is catching up well in Tiruchi region, according to principals of engineering colleges and trainers. At least 8,000 candidates from Tiruchi region appeared for the examination, according to an estimate by GATE Forum, Tiruchi Centre. Of the about 250 students trained through the forum, 12 are within the first 1,000 All India rank, and the names of two among the 12 figure among the first 100 rank holders, according to S. Sivakumar, Director, Tiruchi Plus, which administers GATE Forum Tiruchi Centre.

No doubt, the awareness has increased. Yet, the inclination of employable candidates who otherwise prefer IT jobs to pursuing post-graduation with GATE scholarship must rise, V. Gopalakrishnan, principal, Saranathan College of Engineering, said. Both acknowledged that the performance of candidates from Tamil Nadu in GATE has to improve a lot. As per the directives of Ministry of Human Resource Development, when a candidate is selected through interview for postgraduate programmes (Master and Doctoral) with the Ministry's scholarship/ assistantship, minimum 70 per cent weightage is given to performance in GATE and the rest for academic record and interview.

A candidate declared ‘GATE qualified at the time of admission' is entitled to MHRD fellowship for 24 months. There are also institutions that specify GATE qualification as the mandatory requirement even for admission without MHRD scholarship/ assistantship.

Making GATE qualification an entry point for employment in public sector undertakings is a welcome step to motivate students to prepare themselves for jobs in core areas, said N. Anantharaman, Dean-Academic, National Institute of Technology – Tiruchi. There has been a steady increase in the number of candidates in the Institute appearing for the examination due to this reason, he said.

The results for GATE 2012 were declared on Thursday by the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, the organising institute. The three- hour test in 21 papers was conducted in 860 centres and 170 cities/towns across the country on two days: the computer based online exam in six papers on 29th January 2012 and the offline exam in the remaining fifteen papers on 12th February 2012. A total of 7,77,134 candidates registered for GATE 2012 and 6,86,614 candidates appeared for the exam.

The IIT Delhi zone has topped among the other zones with 18,927 candidates figuring in the list of qualified candidates, followed by IIT Madras (17,343), IIT Kharagpur (15,735), IISc Bangalore (14,379), IIT Kanpur (12,469), IIT Roorkee (12,328), IIT Bombay (12,287), and IIT Guwahati (5,058), according to Prof. M. Jagadesh Kumar, Organising Chairman, GATE 2012, IIT Delhi.

A platform to gauge employability skills

Image
Participants of Master Mind 2012 during an interactive session in Tiruchi on Tuesday.

Twenty-two colleges from eight districts in the state took part in Master Mind 2012, an annual event dedicated to the development of employability skills in students. Aimed at arts and science students, the day-long event was split into three stages that tested their current affairs, group discussion skills, and their capacity to face a stress interview.

“The first stage, India Quiz, is a written test of the students' knowledge in current affairs. The idea is to promote the habit of keeping abreast with the latest happenings around the world,” said Prof.G.Balakrishnan, chief panellist for the day. Adding that this was the ninth consecutive Master Mind to be held in the city, he said that the event was attended by 166 students.

The 60 students who qualified for the next round were engaged in a session of group discussion that let them explore its dynamics like the five roles (initiator, information giver, information seeker, moderator and summeriser) and the types of participants (aggressive, passive and assertive). “The group discussion, titled ‘We learn to fly when we walk with the giants', was a confidence-building measure for students from rural and government colleges,” said Mr. Balakrishnan. The session encouraged the students to be assertive participants rather than aggressive or passive ones. The12 finalists were tested for endurance at the stress interview round, with questions being based on what they filled into a self-assessment form. The form covered aspects like their greatest achievement, strengths and weaknesses, role model and where they envisioned themselves in the year 2018.

The six-member panel that interviewed the finalists consisted of Prof. Balakrishnan, the chief panellist, P.V. Devaraj, John Louis, T. Shadina, T. K. Sridhar and Yamuna Sridhar. While questioning the finalists in a setting that simulated a real life interview, they also gave participants fundamental pointers on how to handle the interview. “The importance of establishing eye contact with all the members of the panel, without making it look too contrived, the difference between being talkative and being communicative and the ways in which you addressed the panellists and apologised were some of the tips given. The first prize of Rs. 2,500 was won by K.A. Mahalakshmi from Cauvery College for Women, while B. Rinaldo from St. Joseph's College and A.H. Mohamed Imran from Jammal Mohammad College won the second and third prizes of Rs. 2,000 and Rs. 1,500 respectively. The event was sponsored by Archana Sweets and Café.

Exhibition highlights job opportunities in biotech

To highlight increasing job opportunities in industry and research institutions, a three-day exhibition on Biotechnology: Biovista 2012, got off to a start on Thursday at the St. Joseph's College.

The organisers have invited school and college students to present their models at the exhibition focussing on achievements, emerging trends and opportunities in biotechnology. Explaining the relevance, the organisers said though there was ample employment opportunities, the problem was with employability.

The section: Biotech Organisation, institutes and companies, explains the opportunities for postgraduates and doctorate holders in biotechnology with strong communication skills, application skills, and sound theoretical knowledge. Another section lays emphasis on a strong link amongst educational institutions, biotech companies and research institutes.
