For my student

April 27th, 2008 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Dear students These days I have written for my students. Now I will start writing short stories for all.These stories can motivate you,inspire you to do something in life.Most of the stories are from real life situation.Whenever I meet someone ,I listen to them carefully and try to find out the reason of their talk. Sometimes when I talk to my sons and husband I get some plot of my writing. When I travel by train or bus I watch the people carefully and pen it down.If you read my stories, please give your valuable comments . All the students over the world,I love you all

Role of Mass Media

April 21st, 2008 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Mass media is a word which is very popular amongst all sections of the society. It is a medium or channel of communication which helps in transmitting messages.

  1. Supplementary and complementary learning :- Mass media helps in better understanding.
    E.g (1) while teaching about Bhagat Singh and his protest we can show a movie to the students, related to his life and his contribution e.g. (2) while teaching Transport in Economics it can be shown by posters, Neon signs etc.
  2. Teach syllabus with various electronic modes :- The teacher can make use of mass media to teach the actual syllabus.
    E.g. While teaching a chapter on Expansion of business, the movie “GURU” can be shown and then it can be related to the chapter while teaching.
  3. Build Scientific Temper :- It enables people to overcome superstitions and develop scientific temper
  4. Reflecting Current Events:- It enables students to know the current events
    E.g T.V programmes from NDTV Profit can give an outlook on current inflation
  5. Group instruction:- Large number of people together take part in it .
    e.g Marathon or Beijing Olympics for economic growth.
  6. Use of leisure time:- Relieving stress to be more active in the following day
  7. Develop critical thinking
