Schedule II Innovations related to Contents of Education Contents of education need to be innovated, keeping in view that there is a great need to develop profounder pedagogy in learning various subjects of study. I A great emphasis needs to be laid on learning languages. The following innovative ideas regarding learning of languages may be recommended: The mind should be accustomed first to notice the word thoroughly, its form, sound and sense; then to compare the form with other similar forms in the point of similarity and difference, thus forming the foundations of the grammatical sense; then to distinguish between the fine shades of sense of similar words

Educational Innovations (A theme that demands central attention) I We may recall that the great struggle for freedom had, in its early moments of resurgence, placed national education as an essential aspect of its core Programme for achieving India's independence. Under the inspiring leadership of the greatest educationists, radical experiments were carried out. National education was visualized in its widest implications so as to foster both nationalism and internationalism, and the lessons learnt from the great systems of education that had developed in India since its ancient period as also from progressive experiments which have been carried out in mo

Introduction Our system of education is the legacy of the colonial past. Sixty years have passed since we attained independence, but even though promised during the freedom struggle, we have not been able to change the system, except very marginally. There are, however, voices all around which demand radical changes in education. A study of this demand brings out one common cry; we want better education. Nobody will dispute with this demand. But disputes arise, when we try to define and give content to the phrase "Better Education". The theme of this book is that "Better Education", whatever it may mean, is not enough. The country needs a kind of

Innovations The proposed innovations will be related chiefly to the quality of education. It has been increasingly acknowledged that our education system is deficient in many ways, but the deficiency in respect to quality is perhaps most deplorable and in need of urgent but careful repair. If we examine innovations which are being advocated in regard to the quality of education, they can be grouped in three categories: 1.Those related to aims of education; 2.Those related to contents of education; 3.Those related to pedagogy and methodology of education. We may formulate a list of these innovations and make relevant remarks. 1. Innovations related to ai

SCHEDULE III Innovations related to Methods and Processes of Education I Child-centered education is being increasingly advocated in all programmes of innovative methods of education. That education should aim at each student's ability to exceed the present boundaries of limitations may be regarded as one of the possible formulations of child-centered education. How to materialize or actualize child-centered education is a difficult task, and it can be facilitated only if we can pool together the results of great experiments connected with basic education or Nayi Talim, or with Swami Vivekenanda's message of man-making education, creative education conceived and
