Achintya; Prabha, Manish
Journal on School Educational Technology, v4 n4 p20-23 Mar-May 2009
Each developing country should be encouraged to identify its own priorities and develop welfare technology mobilizing its own natural and human resources and should not unnecessarily imitate the stereotyped technologies from the developed countries. The existing curriculum has to be updated and strengthened to include the concept of welfare technology. Mass Technical Literacy Programme (MTLP) be launched and propagated by institutions so as to reach the grass root level to generate awareness and bridge all gender and social category gaps. Need-oriented research works be promoted at all levels so as to make education more realistic and practical. In order to bring about all round prosperity, a model of MTLP vis-à-vis a socio-economic system is being hereby proposed and described. Proper interaction must exist between educational institutions on the one hand and beneficiaries on the other.
