Two-day workshop on educational technology held in Jaipur
A two-day workshop on educational technology was organized at Keshav Vidyapeeth, Jaipur, in which the teacher educators of Rajasthan took part. In the workshop, organized on February 8 and 9, the sessions on community radio, visual symbols, making of power point presentation and short video-clips, low-cost activities and ethics of educational technology, were held.

The major challenge of educational technology (ET) and modern information and communication technologies (ICTs) is their integration with the instructional technology that deals with the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management, transaction and evaluation of classroom processes utilizing daily lessons of curriculum and resources for learning.

There was a consensus among the participants of the workshop on the national level position that modern ET and ICTs  have great  potential in schools, in the teaching of subjects, in examinations, in research, in systemic reforms, and, above all, in teacher education, overcoming the conventional problems of scale and reach through online, anytime, anywhere.

The participants enjoyed the session on visual symbols and hands-on experience of drawing them and creation of a short video clip with a digital camera. It was stressed during the workshop that the use of FT for classroom instruction must improve both teacher and learner performance.

It was envisaged that the use of ET should enable students to access sources of knowledge and interpret them rather than be passive users. ET should avoid stressing uniformity, similarity and individualization. It was recommended that that the ET should promote integration, inclusion, adaptation, innovation of flexible models of curriculum transaction and evaluation.
