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

Education is an important tool to bring about any kind of change. 

For that important that one networks ,collaborates to exchange ideas ,unlearn & learn.For this HundrEd community is a great platform.

I want to meet like minded people ,share ideas, reach out to people,know about innovations so that can benefit from that knowledge.

How can education support students to flourish?

Education for most of us is synonymous with learning to read ,write,calculate. But education I believe is of whole self.

Right kind of education helps children to work at own pace,nurtures their innate abilities & strengthens their mind.

Every child is unique,different ,learning in various different ways. As an educator this is important for us to keep in mind.Developmentally appropriate practices, a proper curriculum & assesment,lesson plans will go along way  for each child to flourish.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Keeping pace with the fast changing world, education scenario needs to keep on changing. Certain methodology,concepts are  becoming irrelevant in in today’s context.innovation is thus important in education both from teacher & students point of view.For teachers to keep abreast with new methods,teaching strategies,technology & for students to be able to cope,understand subject matter,learn new skills & correlate with the changing world.
