Vice Chancellor of Gauhati University Inaugurates Education Conference

By Fr. Bivan R. Mukhim
Guwahati, Oct. 15. The Vice Chancellor of Gauhati University Dr. Mridul Hazarika while inaugurating the conference said that we need to learn from the young people because they are so connected to social media and know much more than the educationist themselves. He was inaugurating the 7th National Conference on Education organized by Don Bosco Institute at its campus on October 15.
Talking on the theme of the conference ''Impact of Social Media on Education'' the Vice Chancellor stresses on the need of social media today. He said that social media has penetrated the lives of the people and has reached out to the people with such speed. ''Today we live in the world of technology and it has reduced distance and space. Everyone logged into the internet and the media,'' he said. The Vice Chancellor added that human values should not be neglected while allowing media to take the upper hand in the lives of the individual.
Dr. Hazarika added that in the age of media people have become individualistic and no more concern about people in society. One has to get out of the individualistic attitude and embrace everyone. ''We should create comfort zones not for self but for others,'' he said.
The Salesian Provincial of Guwahati Rev Fr. VM Thomas in his talk said that the world is changing very fast and that young people are changing along with it. Today's media-world posed challenges to educationists to keep track with the changing scenario of the world of media. He asked the participants to take active part to learn new things and to use them in empowering the students in the classrooms. ''Teachers who are unwilling to use technology must be change,'' he strongly said while adressing at the inaugural programme. He congratulated the Don Bosco Institute for talking initiative to organize the conference and wished everyone to use the media in classroom teaching.
Rev Fr. Johnson Parackal, the Director welcomed and felicitated the chief guest and the participants. He wished that the participants build a better educative community through the tech revolution that happened in schools. The students performed prayer dance, a theme presentation and a mime befitting the occasion.
