Author(s): Jyoti Pachisia
Education is the building block which helps to mould and strengthen one’s intellect. It is something done to discover, understand, and excel in what one is passionate about. Education during Vedic age emphasized on values such as humility, truthfulness, self-reliance and respect for all creation. Students were taught how to balance between human beings and nature. Earlier, Teaching and learning followed the tenets of Vedas and Upanishads. The ancient education system focused mainly on the holistic development of the students thus preparing them for life. The tradition carried to the second millennium but at the same time better innovations should be introduced to refine and transform the teaching and learning experiences in positive manner. The world is changing constantly influencing the various domains especially in the education domain. The elaboration of the digital literacy platforms has a huge impact in educational institutions which ultimately put the traditional styles nearly in the aft seat. However, there are demands for both technology and traditional learning methods. This art of combining digital literacy tools with more traditional classroom face to face tutoring gave birth to the Blended Learning. Blended Learning is not a mere mix of online and face-to-face mode, but it is a well-planned combination of meaningful activities in both the modes. This mix demands consideration of several factors especially on learning issues and the learner-centred educational terrain. Blended Learning made the role of teacher from knowledge provider to coach and mentor making it flexible. This shift does not mean that teachers play a passive role in students’ education. This new literacy benefits scholars and preceptors stoutly and furnishing pupil authorization and space to come active learners who gain knowledge helps them develop tone- reliance. The further scholars work singly, further time opens up for preceptors to give face-to- face support and effectively perfecting isolation. Blended Learning provides teachers with an accurate picture of how each student is doing yielding more frequent and more personal interaction with students. Teachers get opportunity to deepen and strengthen student-teacher relationships.
