Hari Krishna Arya

Hari Krishna Arya is Principal at NBV Senior Secondary School, Nohar, Hanumangarh (India): "Teaching is not only the most amazing thing for me; I consider it is one of the noblest services of humanity. Working with young people keeps me young and curious for innovation. My greatest inspiration is the look in my student’s eyes when I have managed to make a difference in their lives. I firmly support Will Roger when he says, “Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” My aspiration is to keep abreast with the changing technologies and I take all measures to do so."

Role of ICT in teaching and learning of Biology



The rapid advances recently made in ICT have very important implications for us, as biology educators. As we begin the 21st century it is almost impossible to imagine what ICT will be like by the end of the century. We can already start to see how these advances are changing our ideas about traditional education. Advances in ICT will mean an enormous increase in the amount of information available to our students as they study their courses and as they move into the workplace, but this must not be the limit of our expectations.Visit the author's original post
