Teacher's Day 2021

Teaching and learning – two words that encompass the teacher, child, and parents and their universe today in all its dimensions. Transitioning from one world into another, adapting, upskilling, reinventing, restoring, and retaining has become the fundamental tenet in this journey to evolve as lifelong learners.

The Journey

For our tribe of dedicated teachers, every day provides a new opportunity to learn at a dizzying pace. We are engaged till the wee hours in the morning having eclectic conversations with our content to integrate it seamlessly on the virtual platform. It both exhausts and excites us. Then there is a new facet of general awareness about technology from RAM to Wifi speed to browser for us to learn and ensure we use technology well in the service of our children.

We were at times fearful, unsure, and not so confident of ourselves. World over we took charge and adapted at a lightning speed without anyone noticing our exhaustion and catch in our breath. It was for us to figure out and charter new learning pathways as there were no gazettes, policy guidelines, or research data available to fall back on.

We had to balance integration between traditional classroom practices and new innovative tools for teaching keeping both content and context at the center. Teaching and learning has and always will be a social interaction to foster, build and uphold human connections.

Our Road Map for Tomorrow

Through our spirit of taking on new initiatives with a strong sense of commitment, a positive attitude, and thinking on our feet; we are doing it all and inspiring our young learners. The road map is still not clear as the landscape is getting more complex by the day and we need tools to successfully navigate through this unstable, unknown and unreliable space. There are ongoing challenges on equity where learning is considered, accessibility and affordability being at the core where there is income inequality. The way we think and execute will decide the learning path for education going forward. The focus apart from rote learning now has to shift to capacity building with accountable measures ensuring our child’s wellbeing and holistic development.

This can only happen when we make a collaborative effort to evolve from being restricted to textbook content and to understanding, supporting, and encouraging our children to fulfill their dreams and aspirations. It is about creating and nurturing potential rather than just identifying it.

By supporting the development of resiliency in children and families, our efforts may not be visible now but in the long run, it will enable and empower our children to navigate successfully forward.

If we look back all of us can remember fondly our teachers and mentors who challenged us to look for magic, look for solutions to problems, make the impossible possible, and move forward with greater resolve no matter what the challenges were. For if they were not there to guide us we would not be here doing the same.

Happy Teachers’ day to everyone, to the spirit of teaching and learning!!

A salute to all our mentors and to our ever-growing tribe!

Get to know us better!

Panel Discussion: Together, Apart – Uniting Efforts for Children in the New World Order

With children out of school, physical distancing as the new norm, and children’s rights under threat, the new world order has “turned back the clock” on years of progress made on children’s well-being. However, it’s not all bad. As a human race, we’ve been built to adapt: we’ve seen a tipping point in technology-enabled education and the promise of a new education policy in our country.

What can we, as influencers of change in the education space, do to create a better tomorrow for children? Join us for a panel discussion where we can come together to unite our efforts to secure the future of the nex-gen and create a better tomorrow for children.
