If innocence had an animation video writ on every frame, Bhimsain's 1974 classic Ek Anek Ekta wins hands down as far as two generations of Indians are concerned.

Einstein said "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge". Years ago, Einstein, an intellectual genius, had beautifully expressed his thoughts with such simplicity that somehow seems to be obsolete in the ever so fast moving world of today.
 

Introduction

While watching the movie Hichki today, at various occasions I found myself saying to those around me ‘you know this happened in my class as well’. This, I owe to my 6 months of internship experience in a government school and 4 years of critical exposure to the education system.

Hi people! Am Anamika, a newbie here

By tta2018 | Mar 23, 2018

Hi, I am Anamika Khanna, a blogger and instructional writer by profession, I had to curate content on related topics for education and learning and developing. Basically, as a part of my job I had been understanding the gaps, perspectives of adapting to the changing education pattern, particularly because too much is happening within the education sector, particularly because of a shift in doing the courses online! Accordingly, technological know-how has a great possibility to flourish, here I would like to know ideas of the same and share some interesting ideas if I can come up with.

What happens within the classroom has the power to change lives - for the better or for the worse. We ourselves know from our own school experiences of transactions which empowered or disabled or left us unmoved, according to the atmosphere in the classroom. This is not quite the same as the relationship between teacher and student, vital as that is.

I had been a school teacher for quite some time. Today I am not talking about those experiences, rather I wish to pen a different kind of teaching experience.

In school teaching-learning culture, it is assumed that a classroom is the learning platform for students only and teacher on the other end has a responsibility of educating them. But it is a mutual process in which both the student and teacher are in the same stream of learning. I experienced this during my classroom practice where I have got a different viewpoint. A classroom is fully meaningful if the teacher and students both are part of learning process so it is not only students but also the teacher.

I, Saud, have been teaching Mathematics to students of Classes 6, 7 and 8 in the Azim Premji School for the last five years. In each class there are three to four students with little interest in Mathematics. Two years back, there were three such - students in Class-6, and their behaviour with classmates and teachers too was not proper. Speaking loudly in class, using bad language and quarrelling was usual.
