Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das launches book by teachers on innovations in education
Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Wednesday launched a book compiled by teachers to improve the quality of education in government schools. Appreciating teachers’ efforts, the CM said, “Teachers’ contribution cannot only take the State towards development but also provide right direction to the youths.” The book published by Sri Aurobindo Society under its Zero Investment Innovations for Education Initiatives (ZIIEI) programme was unveiled during the workshop of the NGOs working in the state’s education sector. The book contains best practices in education created by 32 teachers that make the teaching and learning process easy and engaging. Nearly 12,000 teachers submitted the innovative ideas they have been using in their schools. These were scrutinised and some of the best ideas were compiled into the ‘Navachar Pustika’. Some of the ideas mentioned in the book include inculcating moral values in students by rewarding them for doing some noble work in and outside school, reducing communication gap between children and teachers by focusing on the former’s local languages and conducting activities that increase interaction between the school and community. During the ZIIEI training in 2017, the teachers were encouraged to adopt and share any innovation in education they are implementing in their day-to-day teaching without any investment and using the available resources in schools.
