Vision2010, a document brought out by the Department of Higher Education, proposes that classrooms in 14 schools and private colleges across Chandigarh should be equipped with audio- visual apparatuses.
Ajoy Sharma, Director Higher Education, UT administration said, "Aimed at widening their awareness canvas and exposing students to real-life situations, the document spells out the road-map for big-ticket reforms in the education system by bringing changes in various fields."
The revamping of classrooms is in keeping with UNESCO's World Declaration on Higher Education which focuses on inter-disciplinary studies, promotion of environment awareness, preservation of heritage, community hygiene and sanitation, drug de-addiction, AIDS awareness.
Since the audio and visual impact of documentaries and movies shown to students is greater that text book knowledge, it will also become easy for students to assimilate and remember what they have seen and heard.
Besides providing audio- visual aids in classrooms, the document recommends infrastructure improvement, industry community based interaction students, student support groups, curriculum development research and consultancy and so on.
This document comes as a comprehensive and perceptive step towards improving the system of education.
