These days, information technology and eLearning methodologies are playing a key role in taking education to the masses. eLearning can overcome geographical barriers easily, since it offers an anytime-and-anywhere-learning facility. This eliminates the need to be physically present to attend a class, thereby obviating the need to travel. Therefore, this method helps in saving time and cost. Given this, it can be said that eLearning is a great boon, especially in those areas where infrastructure …

A common water cooler chat for parents who have school-going children is the steep school fees they’re paying for their child’s education. Apparently some ‘elite’ schools charge a fee that is close to the salary of a mid-level executive. But that doesn’t deter most parents from aspiring for such schools, because when it comes to their child’s education, they want nothing but the best (at least what is perceived as ‘the best’). Most of these concerned parents were born around the 80…

Digital learning is fast becoming a game changer in schools all across India. Once it becomes the norm in schools, India will surely not lag in any student assessment programs but will lead ahead. In today’s competitive world, rote learning without in-depth understanding doesn’t work any more. For example, rote learning only works with standard questions. If the same question is re-framed from another angle or in different words, this method cannot help students comprehend questions and they w…

“I hear and I forget

I see and I remember

I do and I understand”

– Chinese proverb

Some time back, I was teaching my nephew a geometric problem based on cubes and cuboid. Although he is a fairly bright boy, he found it difficult to understand and solve the problem following his usual way of solving on his notebook. So, I asked him to get a small cardboard and reconstructed the problem with a box made fr…

“Ma’am, please tell us something new! This is already in the book,” such a statement may be anticipated from a student during any subject-related interactions in today’s classrooms. To the surprise of many, ‘Walls’ and ‘Friend Requests’ have now become more popular than ‘HELLO’ or Hi’.

Are we on the same page? The choice is ours to intercept the juncture with regard to making the best of job operations, deliverin…

How important do you think is a tablet for the curriculum in your school?

Well. A tablet provides a better framework for ensuring better learning through a blended approach, with students getting a personal approach of independent learning.

Is a tablet the only way for schools to help their students understand concepts better?

Not necessarily. However, of course, it is a smart and an updated approach…

The system of education in India is gradually changing. From being primarily focused on exams and marks, it is now getting focused also on creativity critical thinking, and life skills. This shift has come from the realization that memorization should not be mistaken for learning. What you learn by rote today, you tend to forget it tomorrow. For example, some forget the method to calculate square root, others can’t calculate LCM, GCM, and HCF. This is because they learnt all these by rote, mem…

The transition from the traditional chalk-and-talk method to digital education has begun in India. However, we still have a long way to go. Undoubtedly, this transformation does happen overnight; not even over months. Instead, it will take several years and a lot of concerted, dedicated and sincere effort to realize the full potential of digital learning in the country.

The first need is the intent itself to change over to digital education, along with a specific deadline to do so. Then is ne…
