“Jammu and Kashmir is spending more money than any other state in the country to nurture the talents of the youth in education and sports. Many of you know that the budget for youth services and sports in Jammu and Kashmir this year is comparatively Rs 513 crore. More than many big states,” LG said. Sinha emphasized the need for a future-oriented, value-based and ambitious education system that enhances personality dignity. He expects new ideas from future students and teachers and a massive improvement in the education system.
“It is very possible to keep pace with the rapidly evolving technology in the learning ecosystem and equip future students with cognitive and difficult skills. Both teachers and students should be willing to learn and re-learn,” he urged.
The Lieutenant Governor congratulated the students, faculty members and the Vice-Chancellor for the new administrative infrastructure project as well as commended the university administration for achieving A + grade in the recent NAAC report.
Emphasizing on the dynamics of the contemporary education ecosystem, the lieutenant governor said that universities and colleges could no longer produce ordinary students. Teachers need to constantly innovate to enrich the syllabus and students need to learn things outside the prescribed curriculum.
“The key driving force of the future is knowledge. The rate at which we can adapt to new teaching methods, new research programs. The pace of scientific and technological innovation is much faster, requiring faster adaptability from both teachers and students,” Sinha asserted.
It is important to remember that universities and colleges have a lot of potential and a small change in the curriculum can have a decisive impact on the socio-economic environment.
The Lieutenant Governor noted that the Union Territory was preparing for a new industrial revolution, so that educational institutions needed to find skilled human capital to suit the needs of the industry. “I urge educators to analyze and adapt to changing dynamics, and to fill gaps in tandem with changing learning ecosystems,” he said.
“The new education policy calls on educators to move beyond reading, writing and mathematics and emphasizing the development of future creators who influence positive change in society through innovation, creativity, empathy, decency and sensitivity,” he said.
The lieutenant governor assured the people that the administration of Jammu and Kashmir would not allow a shortage of resources for the development of educational institutions in the Union Territory.
