It is vital for an individual to excel not only intellectually, but also socially,physically, and emotionally, which can only be achieved by linking education with culture, and at the same time keeping pace with rapidly changing technology. For education to be effective and result-oriented, it has to be culture based, and it must take into account the cognitive, emotional and spiritual needs of the student.Culture and education are not mutually exclusive: both aim at improving the quality of life through the medium of academics, imparting knowledge on various disciplines and sensitizing the student to aesthetics, moral values and creativity in thought and action, thereby refining his/her personality. The National Policy of Education (1986) recognised the need of education to be culture-based. The role of education in developing democratic citizenship was recognised. Knowledge of culture plays a prominent role in democratic thinking : a democratic citizen is known for his ability to sift truth from false and he/she is more receptive to new ideas. True education also brings clarity of thought, compassion and concern for mankind and is a basis for human rights.
The importance of in-service teachers training was also stressed. Change in educational system can only be brought about if the teachers have been trained and prepared to understand and recognise the need for a changes in the methodologies of teaching. Since the teacher training is limited to nine months, it cannot possibly produce teachers well-versed in crafts. Therefore trained craftsmen though not fully educated in the formal way, should be associated with the trained teachers in the teaching of crafts to the pupils. Educational visits to museums, monuments and historical sites are arranged to expose students to the rich Indian cultural heritage.The main function of the Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) is to conduct a variety of training programmes for in-service teachers drawn from all parts of the country. The training provides an understanding and appreciation of the philosophy, aesthetics and beauty inherent in Indian art and culture and focuses on formulating methodologies for incorporating a culture component in curriculum teaching. This training also stresses the role of culture in science and technology, housing, agriculture, sports, etc. An important component of training is to create awareness amongst students and teachers of their role in solving environmental pollution problems and conservation and preservation of the natural and cultural heritage.The Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) also organizes various educational activities for school students, teachers and children belonging to governmental and non-governmental organisations under its Community and Extension Feedback Programmes which includes, educational tours to monuments, museums, art galleries, craft centres, zoological parks and gardens, camps on conservation of natural and cultural heritage, camps on learning crafts. These educational activities emphasize the need for the intellectual and aesthetic development of the students.
The Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) organizes academic programmes on Indian art and culture for foreign teachers and students. Workshops are conducted in various art activities like drama, music, narrative art forms, etc., to provide practical training and knowledge in the arts and crafts. In these workshops, teachers are encouraged to develop programmes in which the art form can be profitably utilized to teach educational curriculum.Over the years, The Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) has been collecting resources in the form of scripts, colour slides, photographs, audio and video recordings and films. Each year the CCRT's documentation team conducts programmes in different parts of the country with the objective of reviving and encouraging the art and craft forms of rural India which can be used for the preparation of educational programmes for disseminating information about India's culture to the student-teacher community. Some of the resource materials are used during teacher training programmes of the CCRT. These are distributed as part of the Cultural kit (sub link) and other productions free of cost to schools from where teachers have received training from CCRT. Globalization and emerging technologies are making new demands on professional educators at all levels. The Centre is preparing Cultural software for wide distribution and viewing by teachers and students all over the world, both at urban and rural levels. These modules have been developed on themes having an universal appeal to those working in the field of education and culture. Most of the video productions and programmes on Indian Art and Culture are available in the form of CD ROMS. In an attempt to put the Centre on the global threshold, networking with similar cultural institutions worldwide is being established. An inventory of Indian Culture, vast and comprehensive, is in the pipeline. To have access to a rich source of information the Centre is developing an online Cultural Data Network Service. The Centre also plans to utilize the Video Conference Service to bridge the gap between geographically separated experts in the field of art and culture in order to enhance the reach of Centre's training programmes.
