With the dominance of information technology and e-governance, our information society is transforming to a knowledge society that shares, processes, generates, and supplies adequate knowledge (comes after receiving sufficient information) to all members for better and positive human condition. It is different from the information society. Information society serves information to transform society with effective action for positive social changes. On the other hand, knowledge society creates and disseminates information and raw data that emerges from the innovation of information technologies. Here education plays a significant role for creation, justification and dissemination of information and knowledge. Therefore, to execute all these things carefully and proficiently, state-of-the-art education is must. In this article, we will discuss on the required changes of teaching and learning in the upcoming knowledge society.
To ensure up-to-the-mark education, we should undertake ‘knowledge society’ as a ‘learning society’ where information and knowledge must be created and processed in such a way so that education and learning can be maximised. Here creation and innovation must be stimulated and encouraged. Not only that innovation and creation is enough to attain sustainable growth and development, but also we need capacity to mange positive changes responsible for the development of the society. Teaching in a knowledge society involves cognitive learning that includes creativity and development communication in learning and education process. It deserves the ability and skill of working in teams and networks. It requires professional learning for solving problems and developing strategies for risk management. Most interestingly, this learning needs updated and upgraded education to cope with the changes in the ociety. This society must be prepared to change itself with the changing dynamics of technology, information, knowledge and education.
In this society, more emphasis is to be given on teaching values for ‘cultivating a cosmopolitan identity’, especially in the post era of successful implementation of globalization and liberalization. It highly supports diversity and recommends adoption from other cultures. It will acquire all education and learning to uplift agents (here students) to an international standard. In this society, all teachers must be responsible for developing not only intellectual capital but also social capital to set students well in this changed society. Here the role of a private tutor or home tutor is more than all other teachers, as in home tutoring a student gets more chance to stay connected with his teacher. Home tutoring involves one-on-one education model that gives teacher and student more chance to know one another very closely. As a private tutor gets opportunity to discover his students very well, he can instil the process and develop the required qualities and knowledge in his students so that they can cope with the social changes. Consequently, the students can set them very well in the changed society.
Home tutor in Kolkata can manage all these issues skilfully. Having all necessary things at their arms’ length, they can get to know about the upcoming changes. Consequently, private tutors in Kolkata shape the nature of teaching and instil it into their students. It will help students in Kolkata to be well set into the knowledge society.
