New Delhi, Sep 5: A national portal for teachers where you can build knowledge, share knowledge and create a vibrant network of teachers. On the eve of Teacher's Day President Pratibha Patil will lauch a portal exclusively for teachers in association with National Knowledge Commission and Azim Premji foundation.
One of the important ideas articulated by the National Curriculum Framework-2005 is that the school curriculum should be an inclusive space that extends beyond the conventional curricular realm of textbooks into the realm of teaching-learning processes that enables children to participate in their own learning and provides the teacher with the opportunity to plan according to the pace and context of the learner.
The objectives of the portal are to provide a forum for sharing and interaction for teachers outside the formal training environment and to support the development of a knowledge community amongst teachers.
It is a forum to share best practices and to support the creation of a body of knowledge to motivate teachers to access, apply and add value to existing knowledge.
Another objective is to strengthen initiatives on teacher development and to make help available for professional development of teachers.
