Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

I want to be part of the HundrED Community because I am passionate about innovations in education. Already working in the education space and really want to know what all innovations are going in education especially in this pandemic time. I can explore innovations in educations in my class and can work in this space after Fellowship. I want to develop a strong network with educators globally.

How can education support students to flourish?

Education is the only route through which students can change their life. Education opens new options for students and can increase their earning capacity in the future. Education develops reasoning power in students that can help them make the right decisions in life. Education can change the overall personality of students and brings more awareness to students.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovations help educators recognize new ideas that can help them in teaching. Educators can introduce practices that better prepare students to function in the future. Innovations in education encourage teachers and students to explore and research to uncover something new. Innovation can improve education as it compels students to use a higher level of thinking to solve problems.
