Abstract

Teachers occupy a prominent place in any society and in any educational system. This is particularly true in the case of India. From ancient time teachers have been enjoying special status and position in the Indian society as well as in the field of education. In almost all societies and cultures teachers have been regarded as a person who possesses certain attributes, competencies, and traits to succeed both in the classroom and in society as a whole. Quality of teachers is the measure of the strength of an educational system and quality of teacher depends on the quality of the teacher education. Therefore a sound programme of teacher education is necessary for the improvement of the education system in the country. With the world moving rapidly into digital media and information, the role of ICT in education is becoming more and more important and this importance will continue to grow and develop in the 21st century. In this respect, teacher education institutes play a vital role in providing quality education to the teacher trainees using ICT. But it is very regrettable to say that in this Modern Era all training colleges of West Bengal are not been able to accept ICT in its full form. This research paper will focus on the critical survey on the involvement of ICT in teachers’ training institutes of West Bengal. This is a Descriptive study where Survey method will be used. To conduct this research the researcher will use the questionnaire as a research tool. The population of this research work is the total teachers training institutes under WBUTTEPA but to have a control over the data and to time factor the researcher delimitated it and had taken only 6 colleges. By using Stratified random sampling the researcher had taken the sample from 6 training institutes of West Bengal and from each college 10 teachers had been taken. A total number of sample 60. To analyze the qualitative data in a quantitative way the researcher will use Statistical Analysis using t-test. Education is a very socially oriented activity and quality education has traditionally been associated with strong teachers having high degrees of personal contact with learners. The use of ICT in education lends itself to more student-centered learning settings and therefore ICT can improve teaching by enhancing an already practiced knowledge and introducing a new way of teaching and learning.
