The present education system encourages the students to learn theoretical knowledge remotely using digital means
During my twenty-two years of experience, I witnessed rapid and tremendous transformation in the education sector. Education sectors have adopted Education 4.0, personalized education for all. Every student differs in their perceptions, skill, etc., and therefore education should differ from student to student.
During the early 2000s, technology began to infiltrate the education process, and both students and teachers started to utilize technology to a certain extent. This was Education 2.0.
Students accessed their information, learned through virtual platforms, which led the students to have a direct connection to a variety of information sources. This user-generated internet education led to Education 3.0. Development of more personalized ways of learning /desired approach to learning aligned itself to the modern revolutions such as Artificial intelligence and robotics impacting our daily lives, led to Education 4.0.
Education 4.0 celebrates a student’s independence and unique approach based on an individual’s perceptions. The present education system encourages the students to learn theoretical knowledge remotely using digital means whereas the practical skills will be learned face to face.
An effective leader should carry the team along and guide the way forward
A leader should carry the team along and way-forward. Traditionally, we have seen how King and Monarchs would boss around, but today the scenario has changed. A leader should be able to assess and judge a person’s capability. And once that is done, the right job must be assigned to the right person. This allocation is extremely important in leadership. The other skill that a leader must possess is to have the right attitude to deal with people. Managing people is an art and a good leader should be a master of it. The interest of one employee is not important. It should be the interest of a group, which should align with the vision of the organization. And most importantly, a leader should gain authority and respect and this comes with responsibility.
The vision is to empower the girls who are ready to take on challenges of tomorrow
Michael Job College of Arts and Science otherwise known as (MJC College of Arts and Science) supports a lot of girl children who are orphans, single-parent kids, and who are from financially weak backgrounds by helping them with free food, free education, and free accommodation. The fee incurred to other local, other states and other nationalities are also in par with the Government fee for the quality education they provide. The vision of this Institution is to empower the girl child. We can visualize the children growing up here are good at English, and becoming very creative, and technically skilled. As the Principal of this Institution, I would stick with the vision of the institution and would try to empower the girls more proficiently. The concentration would be on the essentials of teaching and learning. The goal is to send women leaders out into the world who are prepared to take the challenges of tomorrow. In the next few years, the institution would be heading towards reaching its vision to make our girl students great analytical thinkers and leaders of the nation.
