Experiments in a Reimagined Education

How About Teaching Kids To Code?

Let’s take a deep breath, close eyes and think about a day where we didn’t use our phone, desktop, laptop and all the digital gadgets that make our lives easy, help us  communicate better, help us present ourselves better, entertain us, save our lives and so on. Seems hard right? An article in the Irish Independent by Ciaran Cannon states that by 2020 there will be 25 billion devices connected to the internet, three...

The Internet: An Equaliser

Several schools treat their students as a statistic - a ‘pass percentage’ as opposed to a human being with infinite potential. It didn’t matter whether a student got 33% or 93%, as long as they passed. An attitude that served the purpose of the school without actually serving its purpose of equipping students to take on the complexities of the real world.

A Safe Space for Voice: Pune’s KER Chronicles

What does is take to get kids to express their voices? Many factors come to mind - supportive teachers, encouraging peers, natural charisma, psychological safety, or maybe just having something important say.  Aarthi Seshadri from Teach for India, Pune, asked herself whether simply offering a platform for voices to be expressed is enough to actually encourage kids to open up. Thus, the KER Chronicles were born! These “chronicles” serve as completely voluntary spaces...
