Much better was the world with books and without devices, when the students knew how to read and respect books and did not kick their bags with their feet!
Perhaps, it is time to draw a line between making it clear to the present generation that either they learn from the Tutor and the books or they they be self-tutored and learn on their own from their devices. If they desire to get the benefit of both, they need to be self-disciplined.
There is no denying the fact that the role of the teacher has undergone a transformation from being a 'teacher' to being a 'facilitator'; there is nothing better than letting the new generation come up with self- expression and self-learning but in order to meet this demand, every school needs to lay down firm and clear Ground-Rules so that a sane balance may be created between the 'Book-less and the Gadget World'.
This can be a strong combination but 'deadly' if the students need to be 'convinced to learn'; they must be made to understand that they come to school, and, to the classroom, to learn...and at what expense!
