Educators enthusiastically participated in an open mic session on making India a global education powerhouse

Conducted by the very lively Dr. Jagpreet Singh, members of the gathering were invited to share their out-of-the-box suggestions on making our country a global education powerhouse. “What I’ve learnt within the classroom was much more global in perspective than what I learnt outside the classroom,” he noted.

The session saw a healthy interaction with the educators who had valuable suggestions to improve the current methods of teaching and shared unusual ideas. One educator suggested that we should lose focus on tests and exams when assessing a student’s capability. Emphasis was also laid on teaching health care to students from K-12 in order to help them realise their potential. Another educator pointed out that a possible solution to most problems could be providing learning funds and empowering teachers.

A discussion on the STEM subjects like Math and Science also came up when someone asked the reason why students were running away from studying these subjects. The conclusion reached was that the teachers need to teach these subjects in a more simplified and easy way and repeat the topic in the class until the students have contextualized the same. To sum up the session, Dr. Singh added, “The prime purpose of education should be to nurture the raw, blank slates into humane humans who promote peace and prosperity in the globe, and not mechanical machines.”
