Welcome to our July-August 2022 issue of Edlines Today. This very special edition showcases educators and institutions from Lucknow. In our big league institutions, we share the philosophies of Kunwar’s Global School, Lucknow. With pedagogical methodologies like blended learning and flipped classroom, the School aims to provide academic excellence as well as gives equal importance to co-curricular activities. Next, Ms. Warsha Sawant from Seth Anandram Jaipuria School very interestingly highlights the importance of educators in a student’s life. A student goes through ups and downs in his/her life, like any other adult. The difference is that the age at which students are undergoing stress, they need proper guidance. It is the duty of an educator to encourage and support students through tough times.
Competency-based education allows students to advance based on their ability to master a skill or competency at their own pace. Ms. Firdous Siddiqui, Director at Rasphil Academy, Lucknow sheds light on the importance of competency-based education over traditional education system in our Rendezvous segment. This section complements our recent event, “Teachers Conclave” that took place in Lucknow in partnership with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. The theme of the conclave was competency-based education and was organized for educators that aim to upskill their students’ learning through novel and comprehensive teaching practices. We have included highlights from the event in the current issue of Edlines Today.
Next, in our Principal’s Desk segment, Ms. Bharti Mankani, Principal at Seth MR Jaipuria School, Barabanki shares her experiences and journey to create a fervid schooling experience for students in Lucknow. On the occasion of India’s 75th Independence Day, this issue features a very special article by thought leader Dr Sagareeka Roy Bhatia on the importance of instilling ‘Patriotic Quotient’ in students. We are honoured to feature Ms. Poonam Kochitty, Principal- Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Lucknow as our Educator of the Month. We take a sneak-peak into Ms. Kochitty’s professional life and are very impressed to know her thoughts on New Education Policy and educational leadership. Last but not the least, we are proud to share with our readers highlights from Edudevs landmark project, ‘Yuva Manch’ that was organized on 6th August 2022. The aim of this project is to create extraordinary participation of youth in discussions and debate on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
