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.
Asking students to take this extra dose has been a challenge-Accomplished a bit now. I can boast of my Cadets and Commandants of EduSoMedia and Innovative Learning.
The Class Blogs remain a well-appreciated initiative since 2011 and now students do not feel surprised when I assign them assignments for the Class Blog. Rather they have started their own blogs and have taken what the real motive of this exercise has been. This is the year of 2014 and we are sure that the use we have been making of Social Media, this work shall be an accomplishment for all of us.

For the last four years, on the ground, there have been accomplishments that have paved the way to the present day EklavyaParv.
It all started with making Individual Blogs for the submission of Assignments. The passing out batch of 2012-B.Tech. CSE and IT has given me what I had wished!
Like the great Martin Luther King, I also had a dream, which has come alive now.
After those Individual Blogs, for the last Two Years, most of the sections, that I have been teaching here at Amity, have developed CLASS BLOGS for Communication Skills and the content, participation and dedication to these is what I love about my students. The declaration that 'MY Students' have made the EduSoMedia Blogs, is so confidence generating. I have made it a Mission now and this dream is not just mine. My collaborators are my students. We have a Team now-Innovating, Working, Determined to work and Learn!
WE CREATE OURSELVES! Very True!
Now the students have started making their Blogs, Personal Blogs and share with me that I motivated them through Class Blogs! It is a Blessing to know and means a lot!
Now, WE are doing this! I am no more a singular I - WE Doing Wonders!
It's Great to be WE!
