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:

Asking Questions

What Machines Cannot Teach

The innovation culture begins with asking good questions. It does not matter whether it is a country, an organisation, a family or an individual. Those who are afraid of asking questions or raising their eyebrows, can never be creative. It’s a well-documented fact that schools discourage asking questions.

Children and adults who ask questions become better thinkers and better problem solvers. You start dying the day you stop asking questions as a child, as a student and as a citizen. You also stop being curious about life and the environment you live in.

Between the ages of 2 and 5 children ask about 40,000 questions. Thereafter, they stop asking questions because our education system discourages children asking questions. Teachers and examinations want only answers. What they fail to realise is that one gets good answers only when one asks good questions.

With warm regards,
