Times NiE (Newspaper in education)

leave a comment »

I was first exposed to this concept a long time back when I started becoming a news junkie. This was in school (Bishop Cotton Boys’ school, St. Marks road, Bangalore) where I did my schooling. There were journalists who were visiting us from Times of India to promote this NiE program – if I recollect, it was sometime in 1991/92.

The concept is simply brilliant. They basically use students as correspondants and reporters to write for the newspaper edition for that target audience i.e. student community. This means there is a section of people who get exposed to reading habits very early on in their life.

To me, it is as important as exercising – you need to stay abreast of what’s going on around you – even if you are not directly involved – be it the regular world outside or the Financial world or the sporting world. Moreover, that kind of an impetus leads to concepts such as blogging where one learns how to write.

I still believe that communication skills and the ability to articulate ones views clearly is of paramount importance in today’s business world – if you are to succeed, you better be good in articulation!
