HISTORY OF JAWAHAR NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA

 

            In accordance with the National Policy of Education (1986) Government of India started JawaharNavodayaVidyalayas (JNVs). Presently the JNVs are spread in 27 States and 7 UnionTerritories. These are co-educational residential schools fully financed and administered by Government of India through an autonomous organization, NavodayaVidyalayaSamiti. Admissions in JNVs are made through the JAWAHAR NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA SELECTION TEST (JNVST) at Class VI. The medium of instruction in JNVs is the mother tongue or regional language up to Class VIII and English thereafter for Maths and Science and Hindi for Social Science. Students of the JNVs appear for X and XII class examinations of the Central Board of Secondary Education. While education in the schools is free including boarding, lodging, uniforms and textbooks, a nominal fee of Rs.200/- per month will have to be paid by the children from IX to XII class. However, children belonging to SC/ST, Girls and Physically Handicapped and from the families whose income is below poverty line are exempted from payment of fees.

 

 

OBJECTIVE OF THE SCHEME

 

(i)                 To provide good quality modern education including a strong component of culture, inculcation of values, awareness of the environment, adventure activities and physical education to the talented children predominantly from rural areas.

(ii)               To ensure that students attain a reasonable level of competency in three languages.

(iii)             To promote national integration through migration of students from Hindi to non-Hindi speaking State and vice-versa.

(iv)             To serve in each district as focal point for improvement of quality of school education in general through sharing of experiences and facilities.

3.      Language Teachers.

 Librarian can preserve these articles for incorporating the same in Vidyalaya magazine and to reward the students suitably.

LIBRARY ACTIVITIES:

DEVELOPING COMMUNICATION SKILLS

Developing English communication skills in the students of JNV has always been a challenge. The new entrants at class VI generally have very low language competence. To make the situation worse, the learners have different levels of competence depending on the schooling background and the individual capacity of the learners. On the first day the teacher faces a heterogeneous group of predominantly low competence language learners and language teaching begins with a note of despair. And yet, it is a fact that in the months and years to come the desperate efforts of the teachers are amply rewarded when they find many of the students communicating well in English, and quite a few of them very effectively

At the initial stages, in classes VI to VIII the schools have young learners who are at the stage of language acquisition, when skills of oral communication in a language is believed to be spontaneously acquired by the learner if sufficient exposure is provided. At the higher level, from classes IX to XII the learners become comparatively mature in terms of language competence and mental age. They have to make conscious effort for learning higher levels of written and oral communication skills.

ICT IN JNVS

  Integration of Information and Communication Technology with teaching-learning process makes the class room transaction more vibrant, lively, interesting, resourceful and interactive. Therefore subject teachers should make best use of ICT to enhance their effectiveness and to sustain the interest of the students.

  All the teachers are to be trained to handle the systems at the school level itself by the computer faculty.  If any staff member is not yet trained in effective handling of the computers, the principal of the concerned school should make arrangements for his/her training without affecting the academic activities of the Vidyalaya.

  At least 40 to 50% of relevant topics in each subject to be integrated with ICT.

  Teachers should be encouraged to develop their own e-lessons instead of using the ready made CDs commercially available.

  E-lessons/contents developed by the teachers are to be arranged topic-wise- class-wise and should be shared with other vidyalayas through subject wise blogs.

  Arrangement to be made to have computer clubs by involving the interested staff and students to encourage creativity.

  At least two periods for each subject in each class are to be earmarked for ICT.  The same is to be mentioned in the time-table to have proper planning.

  Competitions related to ICT are to be regularly conducted and winners are to be suitably rewarded so that the same will motivate others.  Further, the students and staff are to be motivated to participate in different competitions which are being conducted at State/National/International levels.

  World Computer Literacy Day to be observed on 2nd December.

  Facilities available in JNVs are to be used to the optimum level, which includes LCD projectors and Laptop.  Laptop is to be made available to all the staff for the implementation of  ICT.

  Students and staff are to be exposed to online educational website to improve the quality of teaching-learning process.

  Special mention of the contribution of teachers related to ICT is to be mentioned in ACR of the concerned teacher.

  Workshops and seminars are to be organized by inviting renowned resource persons from outside.

  Vidyalaya library may be fully computerized by making use of suitable software.

  Computer Lab will be used as language lab with installation of suitable software and teachers will be provided training to make effective use of language lab to enhance students communication skills.

  A showcasing of use of ICT in teaching learning process, projects prepared by students and teachers will be done on 2nd December to have sharing of resources and knowledge
