Manipur's STAR Education initiative revolutionizes teaching with tech, boosts student engagement, skills

GUWAHATI: Amid the dark clouds of ethnic conflict in Manipur, there is some glimmer of hope for schoolteachers and students. The state education departments collaboration with NewGlobe, an international education support organisation which has its presence in several countries, has brought up creative new ways of teaching to make learning more interesting. The two joined hands in 2020 for the System Transformation and Rejuvenation of Education or STAR Education to create globally competitive government schools through the transformation of teaching and learning that could produce giant learning gains. Under STAR Educations School Fagathansi Mission, 571 high school teachers from various districts were trained recently. Another 253 underwent the training last year. The teachers were provided with a tablet that showed them new approaches to teaching even seemingly boring subjects and marked their attendance. Heshu Martina, who teaches at the Tobumai Junior High School in Senapati, said she got a new idea to teach science with a fresh perspective with the help of the tech tool. The tab guides me on how I should approach the subject, turning it into an interesting session for the children, she said. The lesson plans, incorporated in the tab, have made the class easier. Many of us did not know how to make our lesson plans despite having a degree in bachelor of education. They prepare the lessons based on the curriculum and we need to sync it online. I am sure it will maximise students learning, Martina said. Usham Ningthoukhomba, who teaches English at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Awasiya Vidyalaya in Imphal East district, said the introduction of technology made the training unique. STAR Education provided us with technology-based readymade lesson plans. They monitor teachers performance and motivate them. Now, we dont have to waste our time in making lesson plans as everything is explained in the system. It has decreased our workload, he said. Both teachers said the introduction of Cheers and Energisers was helping them avoid distraction in the classroom. To remove fatigue, teachers and students shout out in unison along with physical actions. Sujatha Muthayya, Vice President, Asia, Policy & Partnership, NewGlobe, said these intensive training sessions are specifically designed to equip government teachers with the tools, technology, and techniques needed to expedite students learning outcomes. We provide training and continued support throughout the programme to ensure that all educators possess the essential skills and pedagogy required for effective teaching and classroom management. The trainings are grounded in the science of learning and shaped by scientifically tested insights gleaned over a decade, she said. The teachers were provided with a tablet that showed them new approaches to teaching even seemingly boring subjects and marked their attendance. She said they rigorously test instructional practices that produce learning gains to create a comprehensive training module that can be implemented at a systemic level. This process allows them to translate scientific findings to cater to the nuances of the government school system. Under the programme, children are baselined and the ability of teachers is gauged to know the status of teaching and learning. This process is followed by local contextualization. Our training and support leverage technology-enabled data to implement scientific instructional practices with high fidelity. We had a first cohort of teachers trained from 253 schools. From that, we trained, supported and handheld 1,800 teachers. We started with 16,000 children and as a result of our intervention, the schools enrolled an additional 9,000 children, Muthayya said. Sonny Chungkham, Director of Policy and Partnerships at STAR Education, said a lot of the children do not have basic foundational skills. He was hopeful the programme would be expanded to primary and elementary schools. Sandeep Kumar, director of the leadership and development department, said 360-degree support is given to headmasters, schools and the community. We conduct 10-day in-person induction training. We have trainers who also undergo training. They train teachers and headmasters. We observe and monitor them and keep giving them feedback to improve, he said. The states education minister T Basantakumar Singh said the STAR Education programme, a key initiative of Chief Minister N Biren Singhs School Fagathansi Mission, stands out as a transformative initiative. The trainings underscore a shared commitment of Manipur government and STAR Education to elevate the standard of education across our government schools, he said. Sucheta Khumukcham, who is the Zonal Education Officer of Imphal West district, said the training has many positives. As teachers acquire new skills and knowledge, they become more assured in their teaching capabilities. They can now handle diverse classroom situations effectively and create a positive and engaging learning environment. Teachers provide students with more autonomy and control over their learning, she said. According to a Midline Survey conducted last year, schools under the programme experienced an almost four times acceleration in fluency outcomes. Numeracy skills increased by 8%, surpassing schools not utilising STAR Education teaching methodology. Moreover, enrollment in schools under the programme increased by 45%.

No state-owned carrier, CAPFs hit air pocket

NEW DELHI: Post-privatization of Air India, the country has had no state-owned carrier. The Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) are the net loser. The paramilitary forces are hard-pressed to get seats on sanctioned price bands. Besides, there are no designated flights for the personnel, particularly for those deployed in J&K and northeastern states. In the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack in January 2019, the Home Ministry had made a big convoy rule change and had issued an order approving the entitlement of air travel to low-ranking personnel on the Delhi-Srinagar, Srinagar-Delhi, Jammu-Srinagar and Srinagar-Jammu routes. At least 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were killed in that attack. Officials said that air courier services face challenges due to coordination and financial issues across various locations, affecting personnel of all the CAPFs deployed in the three internal security theatres J&K, Naxal-affected areas and northeastern states. During a recent meeting chaired by CRPF Director General Anish Dayal, the problem of seats resurfaced, prompting discussions on finding a solution, said a senior officer. Officers participating in various deliberations complained they were not getting seats in flights on account of limited capacity, particularly on the Srinagar-Jammu-Delhi route. The officials also mentioned that on the Delhi-Kolkata-Aizawl route, they get Air Charter Service (ACS) only on Saturdays, posing constraints for personnel, officials said. They said on the Dibrugarh-Guwahati-Delhi route, the air courier services have been stopped, causing severe inconvenience in commuting from challenging locations. About other routes, officials said jawans are also facing problems on the Kolkata-Imphal-Kolkata route due to increased force deployment in Manipur. The demand was made to expand the frequency of air services from three to five days to accommodate the increased numbers of personnel deployed there. After the initial decision in 2019 to provide an air courier service to those personnel posted in Jammu & Kashmir, the Ministry extended the facility in all sectors to help security personnel cut down on travel time during their journey to and fro from home on leave. The eight approved routes include Kolkata-Aizawl-Silchar-Kolkata, Kolkata-Agartala-Kolkata, Kolkata -Imphal-Kolkata, Delhi-Srinagar-Delhi, Srinagar-Jammu-Srinagar, Delhi-Leh-Delhi, Delhi-Dibrugarh-Guwahati-Delhi, and Delhi-Raipur-Jagdalpur-Raipur-Delhi.

Central police forces face transport woes due to lack of air courier services

NEW DELHI: With India having no state-owned carrier of its own after selling off Air India, the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) are finding it difficult to get seats on sanctioned price bands in flights. They are grappling with the absence of designated flights for their personnel through air courier services, particularly those deployed in Jammu & Kashmir and north eastern states. In the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack in January 2019, the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had made a big convoy rule change and had issued an order approving the entitlement of air travel to low-ranking personnel on the Delhi-Srinagar, Srinagar-Delhi, Jammu-Srinagar and Srinagar-Jammu routes. Around 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were killed in the attack. Officials said that air courier services face challenges due to coordination and financial issues across various locations, affecting personnel of all the CAPFs deployed in the three internal security theatres J&K, Naxal-affected areas and north eastern states - prompting discussions at the highest levels in the government. During a recent meeting chaired by CRPF Director General (DG) Anish Dayal, the issue of finding seats in flights being difficult was raised, where discussions also took place to find a solution, a senior official privy to the deliberations said. They said that during the deliberations, participating officers highlighted that they are not getting seats in flights on account of limited capacity, particularly on the Srinagar-Jammu-Delhi route. The officials also mentioned that on the Delhi-Kolkata-Aizawl route, they get Air Charter Service (ACS) only on Saturdays, posing constraints for personnel, adding that on the Dibrugarh to Guwahati and then Delhi route, air courier services have been stopped, causing severe inconvenience in commuting from challenging locations. With regard to other routes, officials said jawans are also facing problems on the Kolkata-Imphal-Kolkata route due to increased force deployment in Manipur.

Seven IRB personnel were also suspended. Police have so far recovered four Insas rifles, one AK Ghatak 2, magazines of SLR and sixteen small boxes of 9mm ammunition suspected to be looted from the IRB camp.

Manipur: Magisterial probe into incidents of violence

GUWAHATI: Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said that the state government would order magisterial inquiries into the recent violence and attempts to loot weapons from security establishments in Churachandpur town. He said legal action would be initiated against a respected leader for a provocative statement and also another individual for issuing a threat to the Churachandpur superintendent of police on social media. Two persons were killed and some 25 others injured in the Churachandpur violence that broke out when a mob attempted to storm the SPs office on Thursday night during a protest against the suspension of a police head constable. The constable was suspended after a screengrab showing him with an unidentified armed men went viral on social media. Reacting to the ultimatum issued by the Kuki-Zo group Indigenous Tribal Leaders Forum to the SP, asking him to leave Churachandpur within 24 hours, Singh said, These grave threats on law enforcing agencies and government officials will not be taken lightly. He said all right-thinking people are with the SP and the district magistrate of Churachandpur. The protestors had set fire to the DMs office complex and some government vehicles that night. Singh said that just before the violence, a respected leader had incited and misguided the youth with a post on X, formerly Twitter, which said 'no action was taken when weapons were snatched in Imphal, but a cop was suspended in Churachandpur.' Singh said this was a blatant lie as the government suspended seven personnel in connection with the incidents when the miscreants attempted to loot weapons from Manipur Police Training College and 5th India Reserve Battalion post in Imphal East district. Playing such divisive politics and misleading the youth is condemnable. The state government is preparing to take legal action against the individual. There is law and we will take appropriate actions, he said. Singh said additional forces had been rushed to Sugnu and Lailoiphai areas where gunfights were occurring for the past few days. He said the additional director general of police (law and order) had been instructed to keep an eye on the activities in the area. Stating that there is no buffer zone, boundary or jurisdiction in the state, he said certain areas had been identified as sensitive or hotspot zones.
