Teachers urged to encourage students

Special Correspondent

MYSORE: Experts in the field of education have called upon B.Ed. graduates to be receptive to the learning approach and attitude of the new generation of students who are not just “passive listeners”.

Inaugurating the B.Ed. student council activities of Bharathi College of Education at K.M. Doddi in Mandya district on Friday, N.N. Prahallada, associate professor in Education, Regional College of Education, Mysore, said the present generation of students had to be engaged tactfully.

“Gone are the days when children were considered just passive listeners and most teachers made the children remain quiet and dominated the class. As a result, the enthusiasm of children was crushed and they remained inactive,” he said. Contemporary students are active social players, Mr. Prahallada added.

The teacher has to give opportunities to children to think independently and develop a questioning mind, Mr. Prahallada said. The modern classroom should encourage complete freedom for students to express themselves without any fear or hesitation, he added. College principal S.L. Suresh explained the activities of the council and felicitated Dr. Prahallada. This was followed by a cultural programme by the students.
