My area of interest is primarily behaviour shaping in children, what is wrong currently and what can be changed to have a responsibe society.Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?
HundrED Community is a great platform for me to connect to like-minded people. I would love to get to know people who share a vision same as mine, and would love to contribute in the same.How can education support students to flourish?
Education is a broad term. It comprises of factors like smart behaviour learning and unlearning, emotional enhancement, sex education, life skills education, arts, academic education and other relevant stuff. I believe our society focuses only on academics and dismisses the other relevant learnings, which is one of the greatest flaws in our education system. If given education which equally focuses on all of these areas, a child will be able to achieve their full potential. A child with such education will be able to excel in areas like life skills, emotion management, acceptance, positive mindset, motivation, leadership etc. which is what one needs to flourish and reach their full potentialWhat role does innovation play in education change?
Innovation, I believe is coming up with new usable, unique ideas for the betterment of society. As mentioned before, I believe our education systems are very flawed, all over the world. Innovation in implementing new ideas, in the areas I mentioned, in new areas, etc. can make my and like minded people's vision of change in system a reality.
