Humility and Appreciation, narrated by Mohini Chauhan of The Doon Girls’ School at Dehradun. The future of education will be built on immutable values alone: Appreciation, Caring, Co-operation, Courage, Freedom, Friendship, Happiness, Honesty, Hope, Humility, Love, Patience, Peace, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance, Trust, Understanding & Unity. Joy Of Learning (JOL) is based on The Little Book of Values: Educating Children to Become Thinking, Responsible and Caring Citizens by Julie Duckworth and Ian Gilbert, explores twenty-two values that can be taught through schools. This program will inspire you by using examples of where the values are already being used by children and adults in schools and share practical tools to stimulate discussion and philosophical debate. It will also help people to take stock of their values and how they wish to lead their life. There is always something to appreciate, in someone, even the worst character will have something to be appreciated. So we should appreciate it as that’s the only way to build the self-esteem of a student. In a class there are braggers or the boasters who are the opposite of humility, probably they are most in need of appreciation as they haven’t achieved much. And the people who achieve appreciation or are acknowledged tend to be most humble because everyone knows and applauds them. So I think if the teacher focuses on what can be appreciated and bringing ng their self-esteem up by saying good things then they will also come to a point where they will start appreciating themselves and then become HUMBLE. Humility is at the RECEIVING end and Appreciation is at the GIVING end, that is why these two values sync very well. The bottom line is a child has to be a GOOD HUMAN BEING. If the children are coming out of school as good human beings then obviously they were taught by good human beings. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/support
Episode # 67: Sandeep Dutt, in conversation with Kapil Gaba, is committed to fighting systemic inequality by democratising and decentralising access to resources and support networks. Kapil has spent the last 16 years in the education sector and has moved to innovation and entrepreneurship. He believes these will be the drivers of the economy and society for the next 20 years—they're a startup based in the United States of America. OneValley’s mission is to be the World’s Innovation Community that supports the global startups and their founders with critical services and support in their ideation, launch and acceleration. The transition was necessitated by the fact the traditional model of getting a University degree and then getting a job will be increasingly under challenge. With more technology replacing people, there may not be enough jobs to support students in millions completing their education every year. Therefore, a lot of these students will have to become entrepreneurs either by choice or by circumstances. We need ecosystems and communities to support people engaged in entrepreneurship. In the show, he talks about a life-changing incident where one young person lays prostrate on his feet, speaking in a language alien to him and pleading for a job. He delves deep to find out the role of family and leadership, the need to move from rote-learning to critical thinking, handling complexity, and collaborate to meet the social conditions in the complex world. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/support

He feels that like Picasso was very clear, we need to unlearn and keep it simple, a futurist must do that. There is the need to be simple and clear and he loves the way, Sir David Attenborough in A Life On Our Planet shares the need for harmony with nature and peaceful co-existence, as the first step for saving the world, which is crumbling due to the rampant industrialisation and human consumption. There is the need to reinvent an organic model for learning, if the child does not feel the warmth of relationship, the child will perhaps put the village on fire. Love and Fear are two diametrically opposite ends, and we must all work to build relationships, this alone is the meaning of education. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/support
Episode #59: Sandeep Dutt in conversation with Hanna Dudich a teacher of English and a vice-principal at Taras Shevchenko Himnazia in Kropyvnytskyi, Ukraine. She has been teaching for 20 years. She is a HundrED Ambassador, a PenPal Schools Ambassador, a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, a Nearpod Certified Educator, a National Geographic Certified Educator, a Scientix Ambassador, a NAYTEA STEAM Ambassador, a SIMA Teachers Award 2020 recipient. In 2017 Hanna became a Global Teacher Prize top 50 finalist and a Global Teacher Prize Ambassador, which allowed her to connect with leaders in the field of education. Hanna shares how she grew up with limited resources, the role her teacher played in helping her explore the wider world in a country that was very much not connected with the world, tourist did not frequent Ukraine as they do today. She grew up doing a lot of reading and writing, got an opportunity to go on an exchange as a student and get a first-hand feel of what she describes as a 'culture shock'. Today with the world getting smaller due to better communication and use of technology, we can virtually experience how life and living differ in other countries.  Hanna grew up with a teacher who had a great world view, they got magazines in English to read, listened to music in English and made penpals. Today she communicates with people with the use of Zoom, email and even travels. The idea of her teacher to invite visitors and the scant foreign tourist to the class for discovering how people live in other parts of the world may now seem alien!  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/learningforward/support
