RIGHT TO EDUCATION ENSURES DEVELOPMENT OF HUMAN PERSONALITY
JANE SAMIA DAVID
Teachers who strive to improve their classroom setting often wonder about the addition of technology and how it might help their students.
While the debate about whether technology helps or harms students continues, parents and teachers must understand the potential benefits of using technology in the cl assr oom .
In this modern world that constantly produces new and improved technological advances, the skills that come with technology are vital to future success.
Young learners need to learn skills like typing, research and communication via technological devices early. By learning the basic skills in school while they are young, students are able to improve their ability to keep up in this ever-changing world.
New technological devices are ideal when it comes to motivating students, who often find books, paper and pen boring. Bringing in a new gadget that has interesting learning tools helps draw in students and motivate them to try completing tasks because they are able to also try out the new device.
By motivating the students to learn the technology, teachers are also helping them learn vital skills like reading and improve logical abilities.
Students who are striving to learn the use of a new technological device often end up working together and improving their communication skills through tutoring, discussion and simple inquisitiveness.
As students discuss and try new ideas while learning the new technology or software, they are improving their ability to work out problems without the help of adults. It also helps them become better at communicating. This ability to work together to solve problems carries forward into adulthood, when students will need the skills to succeed in their future careers.
Technology is a useful tool that teachers can add to the classroom setting. It has a wide range of potential benefits that can improve student learning, motivate and help for better life skills.
As a teacher, I believe that incorporating the use of technology in the classroom will benefit the students, improve their learning environment, and ultimately help them become better and advanced learners ready to conquer the modern world.

The right to education is directed towards the full development of the human personality that ensures access to quality schools and to an education. We have the human rights principles that guarantee the right to education. It can be noted as a matter of principle is that every individual child must have equal access to a quality education adapted to meet his or her needs known as Individual Rights.
The goals of education must be directed toward the development of each child’s personality and full potential, preparing children to participate in society and to do work that is rewarding and reasonably remunerative, and to continue learning throughout life. All schools must respect the inherent dignity of every child creating an environment of respect and tolerance in the classroom, preventing practices and disciplinary policies that cause harm or humiliation to children, and promoting self-confidence and self-expression.
The government must initiate the equitable distribution of resources in education across communities according to need. It must also ensure that the human right to education will be exercised without discrimination of any kind as to race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Another thing is that students, parents and communities have the right to participate in decisions that affect their schools and the right to education.
