‘Ancient Wisdom, Futuristic Learning’ organised by National progressive Schools’ Conference

A workshop on Ancient Wisdom Futuristic Learning was organised by NPSC on Friday, 27 October 2023 at Tagore International school East of Kailash. More than 150 teachers from across Delhi/ NCR attended the session.

The resource person for the workshop was Dr. Swati Popat, President of Podar Education Network. She is a global educator with over 32 years of experience in the field of early childhood education.

Dr  Swati started the workshop with an ice breaking breathing exercise ‘Hoo, Haa’ to release the pent up energy / anxiety in the classroom. She explained, citing many examples and through the PPT, how mental health and mindfulness are directly connected to the brain.

The main purpose of the workshop was to enlighten the teachers with the objective of inculcating the ancient knowledge and adapting the new methodology, which is well described in the NEP and NCF policy. The key points discussed were:

  • The teachers play a vital role in facilitating and guiding the students to find the facts and help them to reflect upon their learning.
  • We need to prepare students for being GLOCAL, i.e. Think and stick to your origin and roots of the Vedic studies and ideologies (local) and be proud to project it globally with new scientific and futuristic ideas.
  • The teachers can refer to the elements of teaching and learning ‘Panchadi’ and ‘Panchkosh’ and implement them in planning and executing their lesson plans.
  • Parallels were drawn between Pachkosh and Blooms taxonomy and Panchadi and Maslow’s theory.
  • The students need to be prepared to be self dependent and look for long term experiential learning rather than rote learning.
  • Multiple learning styles like collaborative learning and RAS (Reticular Activating System) need to be used and incorporated for better results.
  • Different names of teachers as per our scriptures was discussed, Adhyapak – Upadhayay – Aacharya – Pandit – Drista – Guru. It was urged to understand the meaning of each stage and strive to be the real Gurus.

The workshop was liked and appreciated by all the participants.

We are looking forward to more such workshops by Dr. Swati Popat

TIS firmly believes that each of its students is a possessor of certain innate values and that reminding them of the same is of prime importance during their school years. Who else other than a teacher can help them bring out their best principles and values! In order to equip teachers with ways to make values education an integral part of everyday school life, a workshop was conducted by the CBSE, recently. The event saw an enthusiastic participation from the teaching faculty. From serious discussions to sharing anecdotes, from group presentations to impromptu activities, everything was executed with utmost dexterity. The educators stepped into the students’ shoes to understand their situations and needs so that the lessons planned in the future strengthen their core values without making them feel like being sermonised.
