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

Being a part of Hundred not only brings you close to amount of creative and path breaking work educators worldwide are doing it also helps me as a parent " the most important educator" to help & support the evolution of my children in today's complex world !  

How can education support students to flourish?

Education we all know is to gain knowledge . Just gaining book knowledge and good grades is not sufficient to help students achieve their goals . The main goal is to make the young people connect to “the real world",be  able to cope with  various situations & manage their feelings .When there are so many barriers to learning, we need to be able to break those before we can even get into the achievements. At the end of the day, it’s great to have certificates but being able to socialise, make friends and not feel bullied is [often] more important. If our education system can deliver all of this then it truly will be helping children flourish and bloom.

What role does innovation play in education change?

I quote "Education should not be the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire".

What (and how) we learn in school determines who we become as individuals . It conditions how we solve problems, work with others, and how we look at the world around us. In today’s innovative times education becomes even more important for developing the next generation of innovators and creative thinkers.Using innovative teaching methods with students and teaching  them about the benefits of innovative thinking,ignites a passion for learning and provides them with tools they need to succeed in these ever changing times.At its core, innovation is the process of making lives better.

Courage to Lead - By SEED In collaboration with Disha Foundation

Learning is a process whereby knowledge and understanding is derived from and continuously modified by the experiences that a learner goes through. To learn is not the special province of a single specialized realm of human functioning such as cognition or perception. It involves the integrated functioning of the total being i.e. feeling, thinking, perceiving and doing.
