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

I see this opportunity as a way to contribute to an exciting/forward-thinking/fast-moving society/Community, and I feel I can do so by/with my knowledge and conviction in serving human being.

How can education support students to flourish?

The thrust of education is to help students construct their own knowledge about the world rather than passively receiving education. For this to be effective, educators and students should have a meaningful role in all aspects of how they can impact their lives by broadening the scope of learning to acquire soft skills.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovation in education encourages teachers and students to explore, research and use all the tools to uncover something new. It involves a different way of looking at problems and solving them. The thinking process that goes into it will help students develop their creativity and their problem solving skills.

Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)

I have not read much about HundrED innovations but as time goes, I will be in a position to give my own view and article on HundrED innovations.

Three innovations you would love for HundrED to know about. (and Why?)

As already qualified software engineer, my line of innovation will mostly dwell in technology. If given an opportunity, I will like to take the education that we (HundrED) foster for to come with a platform which can bring all our students together.
