Collaborative Learning Model

85% of a teacher’s time is spent in routine tasks: preparation and delivery of content (4 out of 7 periods a day), formative and summative assessments, house-keeping and record-keeping chores. As a result, she finds it a challenge to spend quality time and personalize learning; to teach the child, and not just the subject. After all, that is her primary role.

We intend to introduce teacher-robots in the near future; they will make the teacher more relevant than what they are today. This will be marked by complementary between human teachers and robots as shown below:

Dear Friends,

 

Reskilling by Teachers

The reskilling revolution has arrived.

In a VUCA world driven by technology; and characterized by knowledge and job obsolescence, the challenges are unique. All plans for investment are dependent on reskilling oneself continuously – upskilling, re-skilling, and re-re-skilling again and again. Current skills are getting outdated every five years. Re-skilling is, therefore a financial strategy - a survival strategy, and primarily a personal responsibility.

Individual readiness strategies and investment plans must be in place now, and teachers must work on them from this very moment. The grand strategy will be to become lifelong learners. This will involve:

Learning about yourself: Who am I? Why am I here?
Ownership for self and professional growth
Developing entrepreneurial competencies, especially innovation
Deep reading followed by application of concepts and ideas.

There are several types of investments – property, real-estate, gold, stocks and shares, bonds and fixed deposits. We invest for improving our quality of life, to reduce taxable income, for higher education, marriages of children, for retirement, for starting and expanding business, whatever. The time has now come for us to invest in knowledge – our time, money, resources and hope.

With warm regards,
