It is claimed that globalization marks akin to a small village through time and space. Understanding of these new technologies being an important facilitator of this interconnectivity. Globalization has resulted in significant changes in the knowledge economy and has ushered new conditions for the process of teacher education to cater the skill requirement all across the globe. Due to globalization, the total education system is now available under one roof. Globalization has impacted teacher education from all the sides. Teacher education today is no more constrained by geographical boundaries. The key elements in globalization include the knowledge society, Information and communication technologies. the market economy, trade liberalization and changes in governance structure. These elements of globalization have impacted significantly in the education sector in general and teacher education in particular. The present paper critically examines and makes an humble attempt to describe the effect of globalization in teacher education. The author in the present paper also highlights upon the meeting problem and issues being faced in the present teacher education system of India, in the context of globalization.

Paper Title Value Education: A Sociological Perspective
Subject Category Education
Abstract Education without values is like a flower without fragrance. Character building is equally relevant as career building. There is a saying that values are, “ better caught than taught”, but in reality values are both caught and taught. The bombardment of new technological devices and information explosion has made it very necessary to teach the values to this present generation. As a result value based education must be imparted in today’s educational institutions. Education is a powerful instrument of social change and human progress, it is also a powerful tool to cultivate values in an individual. Therefore allthe educational institutes have greater responsibility to impart learning and cultivation of values through education.This paper attempts to discuss the role of value based education from the sociological perspective and to review different opinions given by different educational commissions. The research methodology include relevant data collected from thebooks and other sources.

Paper Title TECHNIQUE TO IMPROVE WIRELESS COMMUNICATION TO A VIDEO CONFERENCING APPLICATION FOR A MOBILE TERMINAL
Subject Category Wireless Communication Engineering
Abstract Fuzzy logic is often combined with neural networks that can adapt to the environment during the evolution of a CR system. A fuzzy logic control system can be used to obtain the solution to a problem given imprecise, noisy, and incomplete input information. In this paper a new approach that uses Cognitive Radio to improve wireless communication for a cognitive radio mobile terminal by enhancing the QoS of video conferencing application. Our contribution is positioned in learning from events (machine learning). Our expert role has allowed us to choose the throughput parameter to perform a classification that allows the terminal used to gain experience for future events that means that it will know when and where it will activate the cognitive radio. The aim of our paper is to propose a technique to improve wireless communication to a video conferencing application for a mobile terminal using the CR for only one CRMT. For this, it seemed appropriate to choose a scenario on which we will apply our approach. Our technique is based on machine learning. In our future work, we will seek to improve real-time application performance related to many CRMT based on MAS. In this paper, we first present how Artificial Intelligence techniques can be used in the Cognitive Radio networks. Then, we present a state of the art concerning the use of MAS in the context of CR, after that we explain our approach and describing the proposed scenarios and finally, the results of our experimentation.

Paper Title The Effect of Building Information Modeling (BIM) on Construction Claims
Subject Category ciivil engineering
Abstract The complexity of construction projects is increasing by time all over the world. The higher the level of complexity in a construction project, the higher possibility problems may occur, which may have different negative effects on the project’s time, cost, and quality. These problems could result into construction claims being made by one of the project’s parties. Today, claims are a very common occurring issue in construction projects than any other previous time, and they are considered to be the most disruptive event of any project. Thus there has been always a great demand for finding new methods and techniques to minimize and prevent construction claims. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a relative new technology that is widely getting accepted in the construction sector, which has been having a very important role on improving different areas of construction management in which claims are a part of. This paper researches the effect of utilizing Building Information Modeling technology in construction projects on reducing or avoiding the different causes of construction claims through a questionnaire survey that was developed. The developed survey also investigated the occurrence frequency of different claim causes, and there level of contribution in creating construction claims. The effect of BIM on reducing claims was also assessed considering the project’s complexity level. The obtained results showed that using BIM technology in construction projects will have a very high effect on reducing certain construction claims causes, especially in large complicated projects. Thus decreasing the number of the construction claims occurring. However, it was also shown that some construction claims causes will not be reduced or prevented as a benefit of utilizing BIM technology in construction projects. All results of the questionnaire were validated through case study of two mega projects.

Paper Title SECTORWISE ANALYSIS OF IMPACT OF FDI’S IN INDIA ON BANKING AND FINANCE
Subject Category Commerce
Abstract The banking system is something that is central to a nation’s economy; and that applies whether the banks are locally-or foreign-owned. The owners or shareholders of the banks have only a minor stake and considering the leveraging capacity of banks (more than ten to one) it puts them in control of very large volume of public funds of which their own stake is miniscule. India is attracting a low level of FDI largely due to poor business environment prevailing in the country. The investment climate in India has become much friendlier today than previous decades. Our main conclusions are that real-side and financial sector FDI can induce limited technology transfers and productivity gains as well as have wage implications in the host country. Both types of investment can heighten the host country’s integration into world business cycles. Moreover, in banking and finance, financial sector FDI has the potential to strengthen institutional development through improvements to regulation and supervision. Banks provide key financial intermediation services, and their activities have externalities for bank regulation and supervision that cannot be overlooked. India needs a massive investment to achieve the goals of vision 20-20. Policy makers need to ensure transparency and consistency in policy making along with comprehensive long term development strategy. This study helps to understand the impact of FDI in India on banking and finance. Also, author has focused on sectorial analysis of FDI’s in India on banking and finance. This paper contributes an insight to Economic & political relation between India and the country of incorporation of the foreign banks.

Paper Title Achieving Digital Empowerment and Gender Equality through ICT Based Integration in Higher Education of Females
Subject Category Education
Abstract In the present era of globalization, empowerment of women and gender equality are the significant issues. Gender equality is a sign as well as an instrument of development. It is a recognised fact that unequal educational status of men and women is both a cause and consequence of a wider gender inequality. In such a prevailing climate of inequities and inequalities, education is a powerful tool for women’s empowerment. Education being one of the most important means of empowering women, many programmes, schemes, awards and facilities have been initiated by the Central and State governments to promote women education. Empowerment of women in the context of knowledge societies requires strengthening the abilities and skills of women so that they gain insight into the issues affecting them and enhance their capacity to voice their concerns. In this context, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are emerging as a powerful tool for gender empowerment in many developing countries. The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action adopted at the Fourth World Conference on women in 1995 stated that, “ICT is a powerful tool that women could use for mobilization, information exchange and empowerment”. The digital empowerment of women is thus, a vital element in making and transforming a developing country into a developed country. Digital empowerment and gender equality of women is possible, only if they are able to increase their participation and access to technical skills, knowledge and decision making. The author in the present research paper focuses upon the fact that through ICT integration in women’s higher education, it is possible to achieve the twin objectives of gender equality and abridging the digital divide. The present paper also attempts to explore and analyze the problems and obstacles which are there in the empowerment of women.
