“What stands out right now, in school?” I ask my 13-year-old daughter over lunch; she recently shifted institutions. “What strikes you the most?”
“Their teaching method.. The way they turn theory into practice. That makes it more enjoyable. My previous school did not do that.”.
“Which experience was the most interesting?” I prod on.
“Chemistry, Biology experiments and Mathematics…” she rambles off.
Every subject in this school has an interactive method, be it a lab or use of mobile phones to answer questions in class, polls , videos etc., something the previous institution severely lacked.
Now extend that connection to what’s happening in the wider society.
1. Every person, every business is productive because of technology. Adopt/harness it for it’s larger good. Don’t repel it for it’s ill effects.
2. More power to the user. The age of control through interactions at fingertips, mostly.
On these, I attempt to take you through a fascinating journey.
