The Seminar was inaugurated by Prof. S. K. Kak, Vice Chancellor, Mahamaya Technical University, Noida. Prof. Kak highlighted the importance of CCE for achieving the real goal of education. He said that CCE will bring about a transformation in the evolution of knowledge and through CCE, teachers can facilitate the process of learning, thus it is appropriate to call CCE as Computer Comprehension Evaluation.

The Special Guest for the occasion was Shri Vineet Joshi, Chairman, CBSE, who has been instrumental in bringing about CCE in the education system of the country. Shri Joshi opened his speech by saying that the theme of the seminar has immediate and long-term relevance. As a student moves up the ladder, he/she needs skills of life, thus the co-scholastic achievement has long term relevance, as life skills are very essential to become a good citizen of the nation. Today the economic growth of India is 8.5% and there are new areas of growth waiting to be tapped. If these new areas are to be tapped we need to develop the potentialities of each child as an individual. We call CCE as a social equalizer where a child from Delhi and from any other small place in India will have the same scope and awareness of growth on the ladder of success. CCE provides an integration of teaching and assessment into the local context. He talked about initiating an effort to bring transparency into the assessment system and extended a plea to the parents to have belief in the system. He talked about the problem of teacher-student ratio and said that technology will come as a rescue in order to handle the problem of large classrooms. He then highlighted the significance of formative assessment and termed it as the life and blood of CCE, as it integrates assessment into the teaching-learning process of the classroom. He highlighted that the success of implementation of CCE depends upon the attitude and the training of the teachers and therefore, teachers training programmes need to play a stellar role in helping CBSE to achieve their goal of a successful implementation of CCE in schools.

Prof. Avtar Singh, Head, Department of Educational Measurement and Evaluation, NCERT, extended the key-note address and reiterated the relevance of CCE in enabling development of cognitive domain of learning in students which in turn helps in the diagnosis of problems in learning and in turn developing a remedial tool to solve their problems. CCE has been introduced in 12 states and is a reform in education which should be implemented with the right spirit. He stressed on the radical role of teachers in implementing CCE as it is a tool to connect the outside world with the classroom.

Prof. Santosh Panda, Professor of Distance Education & Staff Training & Research Institute, IGNOU, New Delhi, reiterated the relevance of open social networks and computers in today’s knowledge era. Emphasizing the need of change in the mindsets of teachers particularly, he quoted that teachers are not used to do so much work which CCE actually requires. Thus the interest and attitude of teachers and parent teacher coordination are the coercive forces to make CCE successful. His focal points were identity transformation of students through CCE and constructivist approach in the classroom. He talked about resource management by teachers in a conducive learning environment. Today teachers need to follow reflective teaching where both teachers and students benefit and strategic teachers can make strategic learners. He stressed upon the need for readdressing the value system and beliefs of teachers in order to carve out a suitable learning environment for a successful CCE. A teacher has to evolve authentic knowledge in order to sustain student interest. The individualized pedagogical style of teachers will now have to be in accordance to the individualized learning style. Prof. Suraksha Pal, Dean and Head, Department of Education, Ch. Charan Singh University, Meerut, stressed upon the need of enstrengthening teacher education and about making B.Ed. into a two-year programme. She commented that teaching profession is very unique and a teacher has to be responsible for her own professionalism. It requires a unique set of abilities and competencies which make every teacher different from another and add to their professional uniqueness. She quoted the famous preaching of Gautam Buddha- Samyak Gyan, Samyak Darshan and Samyak Drishti which need to be followed by every teacher religiously.

Mrs. Vanita Sehgal, Headmistress, Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram presented the picture of CCE in the schools and the related problems in terms of teacher training. She focussed on the relevance of parent-teacher relationship for a successful CCE. A teacher needs to change her teaching styles as per the level of students or learners. She quoted on the relevance of project work done in the classrooms as to how it builds a sense of cooperation and teamwork in the students. She summed up her speech by comparing the qualities of an authoritarian teacher and a democratic teacher and how a teacher can be a friend, guide and philosopher. She laid stress on the significance of a teacher being creative and innovative. These abilities and values have to be developed in a teacher during the course of teaching.

Prof. I.R.S. Sindhu, Professor, Department of education, Ch. Charan Singh University, Meerut, reiterated the significance of evaluation of teachers along with the evaluation of students. He said that CCE should be applicable for teachers also along with students. Teachers need to evolve as individuals and human beings in order to become good teachers.

Dr. Amarendra Behera, Asoociate Professor, CIET, NCERT, spoke on the relevance of ICT in Education. His focal points were use and significance of EDUSAT and Mobile Learning as avenues for cooperative and collaborative learning in the era of internet. He gave emphasis on creating E-portfolios where a teacher and a student can collect their work samples and skills for distribution online. The term evaluation rubric was explicated by him and he stressed on the need of online testing and problem solving and application based question banks.

Dr. S. K. Mangal, Former Principal, C.R. College of Education, Rohtak and a renowned author summed up the discussions held during the Seminar and emphasised the role of education in the process of “Man Making”. He said that CCE will come as a rescue for the teachers and students to evolve knowledge in the classrooms and it will make the process of education more meaningful and interesting. He reiterated the need of training teachers in CCE appropriately and timely in order to have the next generation of trained teachers in our classrooms. The laudable efforts of CBSE shall definitely be fruitful if we have aptly trained teachers to face the challenges of the changing scenario of education.

Dr. (Mrs.) Shubhra Mangal, Principal, C. R. S. College of Education presented the annual report of the Institute which is functioning from the past 09 years. The souvenir for the Seminar was unveiled by the auspicious hands of Shri Vineet Joshi which had the papers and abstracts on the theme. Later, Dr. (Mrs.) Shubhra Mangal gave the vote of thanks to the dignitaries and the presenters at the Seminar.



Teacher education has to be responsive to the challenges faced by educational system in general and the school education in particular. Besides, teacher education is essentially a context-sensitive activity. It has to respond to various changes in its social, political, economic as well as cultural contexts. Developments in science and technology during the last two decades have transformed human life and the world. New technologies related to storage and communication of information have impacted the instructional process, given rise to e-learning and re-defined the concept of library and library service. Education that does not review and rethink its content and processes soon loses its relevance. These concerns give rise to educational challenges i.e. challenges from within the educational system. The same are being described in detail in the following sections:


 One of the major problems the country faces these days is the explosion of population which is multiplying in geometrical progression while our resources are increasing at best in arithmetical progression. According to many the Malthusian forecasts are proving correct in the case of national development of India. Its population growth is neutralizing the gains of development. Increase in the number of non- earning people is posing a danger to social security. Increase in the number of out of school-child population is a challenge not being fully met by the education system. Youth unrest and inter-generation conflict are now serious problems. The quality of life in family and society is declining. Unemployment has become a major concern for the state and its economy.
