IMPACT ON TEACHERS
-A teacher is a person who helps students to acquire knowledge, competence or virtue.
-The history of teaching can be traced to Confucious (561 B.C.), who was the first famous private teacher. Many ancient Greeks hired private teachers to educate their children. In the Middle Ages, learning institutions such as Cambridge University were founded and teacher training became required.
-In ancient India, the most common form of education was gurukula based on the guru-shishya tradition (teacher-disciple tradition) which involved the disciple and guru living in the same (or a nearby) residence. These gurukulam was supported by public donations and the guru would not accept any fees from the shishya. This organized system stayed the most prominent form of education in the Indian subcontinent until the British invasion. Through strong efforts in 1886 and 1948, the gurukula system was revived in India.
-Takshshila was the earliest recorded centre of higher learning in India from possibly 8th century BCE
-Nalanda university in eastern India was the oldest university-system of education in the world in the modern sense of university.
-Chanakya was among the most famous teachers of that era
-A teacher’s role may vary among cultures.
-Teachers may provide instruction in literacy and numeracy, craftsmanship or vocational training, the arts, religion, civics, community roles, or life skills.
-Formal teaching tasks include preparing lessons according to agreed curricula, giving lessons, and assessing pupil progress.
-A teacher’s professional duties may extend beyond formal teaching.
-Outside of the classroom teachers may accompany students on field trips, supervise study hall, help with the organization of school functions, and serve as supervisors for extra curricular activity.
-In some education systems, teachers may be responsible for student discipline
-n India, Teachers’ day is celebrated on 5th September, the birthday of the former President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a well-known scholar, teacher and promoter of education.
-In India Total number of teachers in higher education are 14.16 lakhs & students are 3.74 crores during 2018-19
-Needless to say, the pandemic has transformed the centuries-old, chalk–talk teaching model to one driven by technology. This disruption in the delivery of education is pushing policymakers to figure out how to drive engagement at scale while ensuring inclusive e-learning solutions and tackling the digital divide.
