Presenting Classroom Badges

We believe in a child’s capacity to perform so much better than what the grades represent. And so, we’re on a mission to empower students and ensure they are acknowledged for all their efforts.

Classroom badges are essentially Digital badges that make learning fun and engaging. The badge is given to the student once they successfully complete a task or exhibit remarkable skill.

Students can promote their achievements with digital badges on a website, online portfolio, or social media platforms. Digital badges provide teachers the opportunity to recognize skills that aren’t frequently highlighted on report cards or transcripts, such as leadership, teamwork, citizenship, creativity, and innovation.

EDUCATION WITH BADGES PROMOTES:

Navigating Teen Emotions: The Essential Lessons of ‘Inside Out’

Published

on

Inside Out 2 | Source- Disney Movies

Amongst all other animated movies, ‘Inside Out’ not only stands out due to its new way of telling stories but also for its profound study into the human mind. It was a 2015 release from Pixar Animation Studios that looked at emotions in a very complicated manner, focusing on how an 11-year-old girl called Riley operates internally. As I saw the sequel “Inside Out 2,” in a theatre full of parents, kids, and young adults, it is important to revisit what we learnt in the original film and why it should be watched by teenagers and their parents.

“Inside Out” personifies five primary emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. These are the characters that walk with Riley through life’s difficulties especially after her family moved to another city. This movie ingeniously demonstrates this emotional rollercoaster which accompanies such major changes making it relatable for children as well as adults.” Inside Out” helps adolescents who often cope with multiple emotional issues identify and understand that they are real.

Teenagers usually feel overwhelmed by growing up’s flood of emotions. The transformations accompanying the shift from childhood to adolescence are generally confusing and hard to express in words. “Inside Out” addresses these changes by showing that it’s normal to experience a wide range of emotions, sometimes all at once. Riley’s journey teaches teenagers that it’s okay to feel Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust; these emotions are all part of the human experience.

Among the most touching messages of the film is that one must accept all the emotional states, not only positive ones. Joy, at first, tries to put Sadness aside and believes Riley should always be happy. Eventually however Joy realizes Sadness is vital for Riley’s emotional health. This could be a great revelation for teenagers who are mostly pressured to maintain an image of being ever-happy. “Inside Out” teaches them that it’s okay to feel sad and that acknowledging and expressing this emotion is a crucial part of emotional well-being.

As for parents, “Inside Out” serves as a gentle yet powerful reminder on why empathy and open communication are important in parenting. With our curriculum known for its single-minded commitment towards good grades and high moral standards, mental health has often been pushed aside. This movie indicates that one way of doing this is by understanding the children’s emotions’ needs. Parents can watch Inside out with an aim of learning how they can create an atmosphere where their children will have freedom to express themselves without fear.

The characters’ interactions in Riley’s mind might help parents understand how complex their teenager’s emotional world can be sometimes. As soon as they see that each emotion contributes to Riley’s overall wellbeing, parents may grow more patient and empathetic toward their children’s emotional struggles. This understanding is pivotal in nurturing a child’s emotional health and building a strong, supportive relationship.

“Inside Out 2,” introduces new emotions like Anxiety, Envy, Ennui, and Embarrassment, and makes it clear that the emotional landscape becomes more intricate as children grow into teenagers. The sequel delves deeper into the emotional challenges that accompany adolescence. A memorable scene from the upcoming film features Anxiety taking over from Joy, emphasising the need for more sophisticated emotions to navigate Riley’s more complex life. This transition is a stark reminder that growing up is not just about physical changes but also about evolving emotional needs.

One of the critical aspects of “Inside Out” and its sequel is the portrayal of anxiety. In the sequel, Anxiety explains that Riley’s life now requires more sophisticated emotions. This portrayal can help teenagers and their parents understand that anxiety is not inherently bad. Instead, it’s a natural response to challenging situations. The film can be an essential tool in discussing mental health issues like panic attacks, which are often overlooked in Indian communities.

By presenting anxiety as a part of Riley’s emotional toolkit, “Inside Out 2” can teach teenagers to listen to their inner voice and reassure themselves that everything will be okay, even in difficult situations. This understanding can help them develop healthier coping mechanisms and reduce the stigma associated with anxiety and other mental health issues.

Inside Out is more than just an animated film; it serves as an important resource for teenagers and parents alike. It allows viewers to have a nuanced understanding of emotions; stresses on embracing all feelings and assists them in becoming empathetic as well as encourages open communication. Now that Inside Out 2 has been released and is currently running at theaters across the country, this may be a good time to take the kids to watch the film or to revisit the original movie so that our kids and their guardians can watch it.

The Liberal Gift: The Key Lessons from “College – Pathways of Possibilities” by Saikat Majumdar

Published

on

"College-Pathways of Possibility" by Saikat Majumdar

Children up to grade VI who secured a rank within the top 15 were exempted from sitting for the annual exam at the school I attended. My academic performance was below average, so I never missed writing the annual exam. During classes, I struggled to learn the notes by rote; instead, I found myself drawn to discussions and debates on the topics at hand. Unfortunately, the classroom environment rarely encouraged such interactions, with teachers predominantly delivering monologues rather than fostering open dialogue. I neither listened to the teacher’s dictation of the book nor dictated the book in my answer scripts. As a result, my academic performance suffered, and I became accustomed to being identified solely by my exam marks.

Reflecting on this, I realized I was a curious mind asking questions, but since I was not meritorious, I often felt overlooked and misunderstood by both peers and parents. However, these challenges ultimately sparked a curiosity within me that transcended boundaries of traditional education. I discovered my passion for human interaction, leading me to pursue social work and later psychology. I specialize in the intersection of psychology and social work. Along the way, I realized that economics partly determines people’s behaviour in social contexts, which expanded my interest to include economics and a bit of history to understand the origins of human societies. This varied perspective was a burden to me until I read “College – Pathways of Possibilities” by Saikat Majumdar. The author’s discourse on education liberated my mind and soul, changing the course of my life. Through reading, I have come to realize that from the very start of my educational journey, I have been fervently seeking knowledge. However, when the expectation was to solely acquire information and reproduce it for marks, I struggled.

The book acknowledges my distinctiveness and is likely to do so for any reader. It is only fair if children who are natural learners are seen as individual persons functioning collectively for knowledge, with knowledge made available collectively. The author poses a radical question to the colonial system of education that is worshiped: Can fundamental arts and science education, or fundamental education per se, be imagined accommodating every individual? This is a magical question to me! I met some students today with whom I closely work on a Psychology student magazine. I asked them, in twelve long years of their school education and one year into undergrad, were they seeking knowledge or information. Their time paused for seconds, their pupils dilated, they looked at each other and collectively said, “Information!” Isn’t this true for most of us? When school and college students are confined within this rigid system that is not eclectically inherited and approached but rather coaches them to consume volumes of information, the nation buries thinkers, engineers mediocrity, instils low self-worth, and compromises their mental health. For a populous nation like ours, the scene is tragic!

This tragic outcome can be contained by opening our minds to the philosophy of liberal education, a luminescence elucidated by the author. The framework of liberal education, as described in the book, is a distribution model where inter-related related and contra-related disciplines speak to one another, offering new perspectives. Essentially, it is a framework that is less framework. This model of education provides the foundational work that allows for choosing a well-thought-out specialization. Specialization here is not about mastering a discipline but achieving a disciplinary depth that enables critical thinking and problem-solving. After all, problems in real life do not come to us specialization-centric. Do they? Even if they seem so, the solutions are seldom specialization-centric.

To cite an example I recently came across, a renowned architect mentioned in an interview the gap between architectural academia and practice. He said that architectural engineers fail to consider the impact of climate change in their designs, thus missing out on addressing architectural dangers. The gap the architect mentions is indeed alarming, and this gap can begin to close right in the classroom by cultivating a contra-disciplinary understanding.

Liberal education can assert the emergence of true well-being, ending the rat race of firsts and seconds in educational institutions. I take this determinative stance for many reasons, coming from the perspective shift the book has driven me to acknowledge.

Knowledge! Do we acquire it, experience it, or create it? I believe knowledge is a culmination of all these. The author says there are two sides to knowledge: one is the consumption of knowledge, and the other is the production of new knowledge. We are trapped in a colonial system of education that attempts to train us to consume information, and the quantity of consumption is scored, possibly creating an uninspiring relationship with the subjects, as it did for me. Information in education is crucial, but information alone is not education; it is merely a component. Knowledge, which is education, is crucial for a life of sustenance and progress. Sadly, the colonial-influenced Indian education system is producing aspirants of information, facts, and data alone.

In a conversation with the author, he highlighted how even aspirants cracking the Indian competitive exams such as CAT, JEE, etc., focus on facts and figures but fall short on knowledge that connects them to the real world. They reach only a certain point in their careers and life overall, then lose themselves. These aspirants are supposedly the intelligent bunch, so what is the lacuna? This applies to anyone who is an active part of this education system. This broadens the vision to something primal. While information learned within a syllabus is vital, it alone does not suffice to thrive. After a certain stage, there is no syllabus handed over. It is knowledge seeking that drives the human race towards individual and collective development and well-being. How is knowledge seeking cultivated and nurtured from a young age?

The focus here shifts from the consumption of information to the consumption of knowledge. But how is this achieved? The author emphasizes the power of big-think questions in classrooms. When students studying any discipline are guided to ask and are asked big-think questions, they engage in the fundamental spirit and methodology of the discipline, as mentioned in the chapter “The Souls of Disciplines.” To quote an example from the book, history, at its heart, is a narrative of people, groups, communities, and places in time, beyond mere information about specific historical periods. Unfortunately, this spirit is often silenced under the maze of facts and information that constitute the body of the discipline, the author contends.

When education drives a student to understand the epistemic form of the discipline, she will navigate her life well with her knowledge alone, with stealth and sensitivity, without needing to rely on a syllabus for support. Life with education begins with understanding the epistemic form of one’s primary discipline of interest and extends to drawing attraction to other disciplines, either interdisciplinary or contra-disciplinary. Reading about contra-disciplinarity can leave anyone amused! Can one imagine literature and computer science communicating? The friendship between the abstraction of literature and the concreteness of computer science is disruptive, and the author calls for it for a deeper sense of knowledge. Consumed in this way, knowledge transitions into the production of new knowledge at all stages of consumption. This makes education increasingly interesting, sustaining, evolving, and useful.

What resonated with me most was the author’s perspective on teaching questions and research questions. According to the author, no question is directionless. A question that lacks a definitive answer but stimulates the mind, ignites curiosity, and encourages deeper exploration into a paradigm is a teaching question. Such questions foster openness to various perspectives, acceptance of experiences, assimilation, and the consumption of knowledge. On the other hand, the counterpart of consumption is the production of new knowledge rooted in research questions studied empirically, theoretically, conceptually, and empathetically. Research allows for a deep relationship with knowledge and the process of scientific inquiry to produce new knowledge grants one a real agency. This process of questioning, learning, and constructing knowledge cultivates critical thinking grounded in knowledge. In essence, both the consumption and production of knowledge occur through questioning. When knowledge naturally flows between consumption and production, who better than students and teachers can move in and out and back and forth? This affirms the truth that education involves lifelong consumption and production of knowledge.

The book also reflects the reality, empathizes with the plight, and identifies the aspirations of a teacher-researcher trapped in a college constrained by the Indian university system of college operations. As a professor caught between the desire to lead oneself and counterparts with knowledge and piles of files, reading the book broke the silence. Bringing change to this system requires individuals, institutions, and policies to unlearn and relearn, marking the onset of a liberal mindset for liberal education. However, it only takes openness to begin this change in my classroom.

To conclude and commence, I borrow the author’s words, “Whatever the how, here’s the now.”

Hidden Figures: A Film Every Student Should Watch and Why

Published

on

In the vast tapestry of cinematic storytelling, few films carry the weight of transforming our understanding of history and the unsung heroes within it quite like “Hidden Figures.” This masterpiece not only unfolds the extraordinary tale of three African-American women who were pivotal to NASA’s success in the space race but also serves as a beacon of inspiration for students across the globe. As the world recently celebrated the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11th February, it is imperative to delve into why “Hidden Figures” is a must-watch for every student.

“Hidden Figures” brings to light the incredible journey of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, portrayed with compelling depth by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae, respectively. These brilliant minds overcame the dual hurdles of racial and gender bias to lay the groundwork for John Glenn’s historic orbit around Earth. Their story is not just a chapter of NASA’s triumphs but a testament to the indomitable spirit of those who dare to dream big and defy societal constraints.

For students, “Hidden Figures” is much more than a history lesson; it is an exploration of the values of perseverance, integrity, and teamwork. The film adeptly captures the essence of these values, showing that success is not the reserve of a privileged few but achievable by anyone with the talent and determination, regardless of their background. This is the story of three strong women who are independent, making a way of their own in a time where people do not even believe that NASA hires women and that too women of colour. When they ask for what they deserve, they are frowned upon and rejected. They are expected to know what their place is and what is the way to look like a white person. Still, these women thrive. Today, the situation has improved for better but our students should understand what it took for the trailblazers and women like these three to bring the world where it is today.

The narrative rhythm of “Hidden Figures” mirrors that of an underdog story, making it relatable and engaging for a younger audience. It offers a linear and steady progression, showcasing the personal and professional challenges these women faced, their initial setbacks, and their ultimate triumph. Furthermore, the film’s emphasis on education and intellectual prowess as tools for breaking barriers is a critical takeaway for students. It highlights the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and the role it plays in shaping the future. “Hidden Figures” demonstrates that knowledge and skill are powerful agents of change, encouraging students to pursue their interests in these fields with zeal.

The film does not shy away from the harsh realities of the era it depicts but chooses to focus on the triumph of intellect and determination over discrimination and adversity. This balanced storytelling approach makes “Hidden Figures” an educational tool that transcends the classroom, imparting lessons of equality, respect, and the pursuit of excellence.

Hidden Figures is more than just a film; it is a catalyst for change, inspiring students to recognize and challenge the societal limitations placed upon them. It encourages a deeper appreciation for the contributions of women and minorities in science and technology, urging a more inclusive recognition of achievement in these fields. For these reasons and more, it is a film that every student should watch, serving as a reminder that history is made by those who dare to believe in the possibility of the impossible.

India’s first, exclusive k -10 child safety school program – Hapchi is building an informed and resilient generation

Hapchi is a safety awareness and skill development organisation that aims to empower children 3 – 16 years against threats of abuse, bullying, cybercrime, and mental health issues

Published

on

Ever wondered how your school can successfully address child safety concerns? If so, then look no further than HAPCHI!

"We live in a world where the understanding about child safety is restricted to good touch and bad touch and where rising instances of bullying and mental health issues are still being swept under the carpet. The current generation is maturing much earlier than its predecessors because of its exposure to technology. In today's environment, child safety is undermined at every stage of a child's life. It has therefore become essential to break down the barriers and begin discussing and destigmatizing these problems, now and no later. "  – Dr. Kanika Sharma, Founder of Hapchi

HAPCHI, India’s first, revolutionary, and exclusive k -10 child safety school program, paves the way for an informed and resilient generation. It is a safety awareness and skill development organisation that aims to empower children 3 – 16 years against threats of abuse, bullying, cybercrime, and mental health issues. Our curriculum is ingeniously designed, customizable, and approved by experts. It is centered around a school-going child and connects all the critical stakeholders of the child's education ecosystem, that is school, teachers, and parents.

What sets Hapchi apart is that we create an environment that empowers children to openly discuss and express their issues without the fear of being judged. It helps kids realise that it's okay not to be okay, and allows them to empathise with the other's perspective. Along with learning about safety skills, real-life skills are also developed. It is a journey from innocent,  vulnerable childhood to a happy, well-informed, and confident adulthood.

Along with schools, parents play a crucial role in empowering children to protect themselves. We also provide sessions for parents and educators to help them understand the child's perspective and bridge the communication gap. We believe that every child is unique and capable of reaching their full potential if they are raised in a nurturing environment.

“The best gift you can give any child is to empower them for life” – Dr. Kanika Sharma

Dads, The PA In Parenting: A Book That Shatters All Stereotypes About Roles Of Fathers

Dr. Swati Popat Vats encouraged and guided sixteen fathers to tell their tales of fatherhood. This book is a compilation of stories from all walks of life. Read how these fathers manage to be involved parents in the 21st century and how their children are closer to them because of their efforts

Published

on

Dads, the PA in Parenting, is a book by Scholastic and is supported by the Early Childhood Association (ECA), Association for Primary Education & Research (APER). It was compiled by Dr. Swati Popat Vats, who is a Parenting Mentor, President at ECA & APER, President, Podar Education Network, Founder/Director, Podar Jumbo Kids.

The book was launched during an online session that was headed by Dr. Vats and hosted twenty-one fathers, it was held a day prior to Father’s Day this year (2021).

Dads, the PA in Parenting is an assembly of stories, techniques, challenges, and happiness of fatherhood. This is the first time during the pandemic that sixteen fathers came together and wrote a book on parenting. This book challenges the time-long and socially accepted roles of mothers as the primary caregiver for children. Readers will find, fathers from different walks of life writing about several trials, solutions, and ways of nurturing their kids.

During the launch, Dr. Vats reminisced about the time when the idea of this book was not yet in existence. During a conversation with a dear friend, the actor Karanveer Bohra, she realised how society has discriminated in the roles of parents.

Karanveer writes in the 'Forward' of the book, how being closer to his mother helped him develop motherly instincts. Why he decided that he will not be the kind of father who can not be seen spending time with his daughters or changing their nappies because that’s a “mother’s job.”

Book Review Of ‘The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think In Action’

A guest review of the book by D.A Schon, Professor at MIT who developed the concept of ’Reflective Practice’ and further contributed to the theory of ’Organizational learning’ 

Published

on

The epoch-making book, 'The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think In Action' by D. A Schön (1983), is a work in which the author advocates a revolutionary shift from formalism to the study of experience. There was no other work other than this that revolutionised educational practices greatly since the first thought of reflection had come from John Dewey in 1933. Presenting  the concept, Dewey described how reflection could help an individual to develop thinking and learning skills. He defined reflection as, “the active, persistent and careful consideration of any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the grounds that support it and the further consideration to which it tends” (Dewey, 1933, p 9).

Schön’s work is divided into three parts in ten chapters. Part 1 consists of two chapters, titled 'Professional Knowledge and Reflection in Action'. The first chapter casts doubts about traditional ways of understanding professional knowledge. The second one recognises the traditional with 'technical rationality' and moves to the unconventional view of 'reflection in action'. Part 2, titled 'Professional Contexts for Reflection in Action', takes the book's lion share with 7 seven chapters dedicated to the part. The author uses a series of case studies in five different professions to elaborate on his idea of 'reflection in action'. Architecture, Psychotherapy, Engineering, Town Planning and Management are the represented fields. Part 3, the concluding part, is a single chapter in which he considers the professional implications of 'reflection in action'. 

As an educational Professional, my takeaways lie in the second part. Each case study begins with an account of the intellectual history of the represented fields. The emphasis of the case studies is a kind of particular, personalised account of professional problems. Schön presents an architecture and a psychotherapy case in chapters 3 and 4, which culminate into a theoretical study of the structure of 'reflection in action' in chapter 5. The case studies do not have any theoretical base and the participants were not looking for a theory; neither they were looking for a standard solution for any problem. They were trying to resolve a particular and unique problem instead. The author highlights these facts and makes interesting observations which make sense in his 'turned around' perception on practice and practitioner thought. He writes, "Through the unintended effects of action, the situation talks back. The practitioner, reflecting on this back-talk, may find new meanings in the situation which lead him to a new reframing" (Schön P.135). The idea of a situation 'talking back' in answer to reflective and thought questions is continuously presented in the book. His theory is repeatedly referred to in case incidents that develop "accounts for artistry in situations of uniqueness and uncertainty" (Schön P.165). This contradicts the traditional technical rationality.

More case studies are presented in chapters 6, 7 and 8 with the same pattern. Part 2 is concluded in Chapter 9, in which Schön elaborates on the rudiments of the theory. He highlights the commonalities across the professions and, more importantly, the limits of the commonalities.

The book is a must read for all who take reflective practice seriously.

How to Teach the Language of Aspiration in India: English

fREADom is organising a Live Trial English Reading & Communication Workshop. The workshop will be conducted as an after-school activity in a small group to give personalised attention & experience to fREADom Online Classes.

Published

on

English is, almost certainly, the most important subject that a child can learn in school. By assuming that students will learn proper communication skills without guidance is a big mistake. Therefore, not being able to read independently affects not only the language but other subject areas as well. Thus, the goal should be to ensure that children develop strategies for comprehending a variety of texts ranging from narrative to expository. Sadly, not only do the children have no or scant exposure to English at home, it is in itself a complex language to read, and this impacts children severely in many ways — academically, socially, economically, and culturally.

Learning English requires a community, not just a classroom

Introducing f-live classes – a set of online English Classes designed for students from Nursery – Grade 6. Complimentary to the school's curriculum, these are skill-based, age-appropriate classes that assess and show transparent progress to parents through continuous communication. F-Live's approach to English is simple and guided by these principles:

  • Start Early and Build Skills (age 3 to grade three)

Teach children to decode text and make meaning

  • Inspiration is Everything! (focus on will building with skills)

Surround children with rich, age-appropriate literature that fosters a cultural connection

  • Don’t Leave it to Chance (be systematic, extensive, explicit)

To create an internal pull for reading, children must start early, be systematic, and sustain it

  • No Silos (learning is multi-dimensional)

Reading is complemented and enhanced by speaking, listening, and written expression

  • Design for Sustainability and Scalability (all good work must be scaled) 

Constantly innovate so that we can reach vastness and address diversity

How Does f-Live Classes Help?

Children succeed in oral and written communication skills through a teacher-led English Language Program which:

  1. Nurtures confidence & sheds shyness
  2. Develop critical thinking & decision making
  3. Helps master reading comprehension
  4. Achieve grammatically accurate grade-level fluency
  5. Publish stories and blogs to share with the world outside

fREADom is organising a Live Trial English Reading & Communication Workshop. The workshop will be conducted as an after-school activity in a small group to give personalised attention & experience to fREADom Online Classes.

Dr Dheeraj Mehrotra’s Books Get Listed On ‘Best AI Basics Books of All Time’

The books include Basics of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning and AI Basics For School Students. These are available on Amazon.

Published

on

Two books on Artificial Intelligence authored by an Indian educator named Dr Dheeraj Mehrotra have been listed among the top 9 books on Basics of Artificial Intelligence by BookAuthority Organisation. (BookAuthority identifies and rates the best books in the world, based on recommendations by thought leaders and experts.)

Dr Mehrotra is a National Awardee, who’s been writing on various topics including Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence for decades now. (He can be reached at www.authordheerajmehrotra.com)

Synopsis of the two featured books:

Basics Of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

Advertisement

The concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning (ML) has been in practice for over years with the advent of technological progress. Over time, it has blended our lives through nearly every narration of learning, teaching, enjoyment, normal routine operations and whatnot. The aspect delivers a common understanding of the topics with reference to it making an impact on our lives, with a better framework of technology affecting our lives in particular. Let us look up to science for a change to be brought about in us. Let us create awareness of making technology available to people, in a broader sense.

As that happens, people who are responsible need to be told about the use and misuse of the same. As we lead our lives, we come across the fact that AI, Robotics and Learning Machines seem to be the household topic of discussion. Earlier, AI was perceived to be reserved for only ‘Geniuses’ or ‘Researchers’ or the ‘computer’ community, but it very aptly integrates and impacts each and every aspect of our lives. Knowingly or unknowingly, it has become intellectually influential in shaping our thoughts, actions and day-to-day chores.

AI Basics For School Students

The book targets the learning of concepts as prescribed by the CBSE. The objective of the module is to develop a readiness for understanding and appreciating Artificial Intelligence and its application in our lives. The units dwelled include Excite, Relate, Purpose, Possibilities and AI Ethics which are set to empower the kids to identify and appreciate AI and describe its applications in daily life and to apply and reflect on the Human-Machine Interactions.

Excerpts from ScooNews’ conversation with Dr Mehrotra:

What is the right age to introduce children to subjects like AI and machine learning?

Kids are super-powered and are always hungry for knowledge. I believe the right age is class 1 onwards where we teach them about the environment around. Since AI is clubbed with everyday things and the way they lead the life, the beauty of technology can be shared in an experiential learning method right away.

This list comprises of writers from around the world. What’s your take-back from this victory?

As an Indian educator, I believe learning should be a hobby. Being a computer science teacher with an experience of over 14 years at City Montessori School, Lucknow, I have migrated as an author as well. I believe a subject like Artificial Intelligence is an upgrade to life skills learning. As an author of Computer Science Books, taking recognition of being an AI-recognised author is again a pride. I look forward to working for this field more for now.

My class VIII/IX/X books are also on Amazon for the same subject and I am looking forward to training more and more teachers and students to take this as a life skill rather than just a knowledge base.

The year 2020 is all about virtual/distance learning, how can educators use online platforms to develop interest among kids in this subject. 

Well, for sure the year 2020 has been all about virtual and cloud-based learning. It has given a lot of impetus to the learning standards globally. A simple example like Google experiments on AI has been contributing a great learning base online for the kids globally for understanding and experiencing the Artificial Intelligence in particular. Two suggested links are https://code.org/oceans and https://experiments.withgoogle.com/collection/ai.
