School of Education, G D Goenka University organized an activity on collage making. The students participated with great enthusiasm. Students were given tips as to how a collage is to be made. They were experienced the effective use of old newspapers and magazines and appreciated the importance of research on any topic which is given for such an activity.
The present activity was on the theme “Beti Bachao Beti Parhao”. This slogan is very pertinent today where on one hand we have people like Sakshi Malik, the international level wrestler from Haryana who are the brand ambassadors of the movement and have made India proud on the global arena and on the other hand female foeticide and dowry deaths are still commonplace. Student teachers were given feedback on the importance of a good presentation viz-z-viz proper font size, clear and neat words. They were apprised about the importance of short and lucid messages in collages and that they have to be self-explanatory. This is an essential component of Teacher Education program as collages makevery time-saving and economical teaching aids.
The student teachers learnt about not only how to use their creativity at work but also learnt to co-ordinate with each other. They also got an opportunity to polish their leadership and managerial skills as they delegated work among their peers and finally came up with their presentations very well.
