'Speak Freely-Keep the Conversation Going-Share Moments that Matter-Say What's On Your Mind' Education is Communication. The moment we stop dialogue, education ends. It has been followed since the beginning of our civilisation that we need to connect with others and thereafter collaborate to grow.
It started with the desire to learn more and for a teacher, Learning resides in the LEARNING by Students. I believe that we learn through teaching. Being in the Chair of the Teacher King, we can do wonders. My Teachers have done this to me and I am determined to take that dedication ahead.
Apna Radio aka Our Radio is just a random shot to the galaxy of professional Podcasters and we are sure to grab a few shining stars with this out-of-the-way thing. The show was recorded without a given script and the surprised-but-smart people participated with a happy heart.
SWAYA : India has lot to do with Education and we have a self-proclaimed authority over learning. Yes! We mean it when we talk of real learning as the foundation of true education has its roots in our civilization.
Every Communication, by and large, has one thing in common: The Communicators must connect to the expectations and needs of the receivers, and this only leads to the desired response for them.
The best we can do for and with Technology is to use to the best of our welfare and enhancement of learning. While we see that the new generation is quite slow in reading and even the texts are sometimes failing to sustain the diversions, EklavyaParv and EduSoMedia team presents to you the Learning Radio.
SWAYAM: Evoking an Innovative Tomorrow
As the 25th of September, 2014 is approaching, the stirs in the Indian educational landscape are becoming louder.
Teaching is a challenging job when we have focused on defined outcomes. There can always be a debate over the various dimensions of teaching and learning. What we avoid generally are the learning dimensions of education.
A Teacher is a strange being. Right from the first day of the class to the last one before the evaluation process starts, the efforts go endlessly. Technology, which deserves safe-hands of a teacher is yet to be made a part of the pedagogy. Though some teachers have already moved to embrace the EdTech and EduSoMedia.
What is EduSoMedia? EduSoMedia stands for Education through Social Media. Making optimum use of Social Media Platforms/Networks by integrating them into teaching-learning methodology. The Pedagogy of Teaching uses Blogging, YouTube, Podcasts, Twitter, Google Hangouts, Webinars etc. to keep the classroom active at all times to achieve collaborative learning.
From July 2009 to December 2015, my life was full of accomplishments that were learning gifts from my students at Amity University Noida. The tenure was designated as a faculty but the experience was of a different nature. It could not remain confined to the narrow walls of stereotyped instructions.
EduSoMedia was not a Model of Learning or Teaching when it was first coined or framed. The story behind the country's (in fact world's) first Innovative Learning Model of Social Media Integration into HigherEd started without a name or title.
