CM exhorts teaching fraternity to become techno-savvy

Inaugurating the annual conference of Gujarat Rajya Acharya Sangh today in Ambaji Chief Minister Narendra Modi exhorted the teaching fraternity to become techno-savvy.

A teacher’s role would be crucial in bringing qualitative changes in education sector through the usage of technology, he said.

Considering the scale, speed and scope of Gujarat’s development, he said, the usage of technology in imparting education would increase greatly in the coming times. And so the teachers would need to be conversant with the latest technology and new methods of education.

Chief Minister said the state has planned to celebrate 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. The teaching fraternity should seize this opportunity for imparting professional skills to the youths of Gujarat. 21st century is the era of knowledge. And in this era, education and the empowerment of our youths are the best ways for India to establish its supremacy over the world.

Talking about the state government’s moves for the encouragement of innovations in the field of education Chief Minister said the government has set up a world-class incubation centre, i-Create, in the headship of Mr. Naranyan Murthy with a view to give shape to the innovative ideas, research and experiments of the youths. The state government has also formed ‘Gujarat Educational Innovation Commission’ to push innovative experiments and research.

Gujarat is the only state which has received a full-fledged 36 MHz satellite communication transponder. This will enable the state government to provide long distance education to even the remotest parts of the state, Chief Minister said.

With a view to create highly trained teachers, Gujarat government has set up Teachers’ University and has also come up with some 976 new syllabuses for giving professional training to the youths, he added.

A cheque of Rs.1,11,111 was donated to the Chief Minister’s Kanya Kelvani Nidhi by the Acharya Sangh. Minister of State for Education Jaysinhji Chauhan and the office bearers of the Principals’ Association were also present on the occasion.
