Session on education ignites young minds

Bangalore, Nov 16, 2012, DHNS :

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) served as platform to discuss and dissect various themes of education and the present day learning processes.

Academicians, educators, researchers and opinion makers from the education field all over the world, took part in the inaugural session of the three-day conference on “Mentors Conclave, 2012 - Questioning and Co-creating Education,” which began Friday.
A number of viewpoints were expressed on day one.

Jinan K B, an educator from Kerala, explained that learning was a biological process like digestion. Modern education was an act of crime and schools were slaughterhouses of young minds, he said.


Jinan also aspires for an inquiry into the cognitive damage of modern schooling and biological roots of beauty at the university of life. His session stressed on the crucial role played by the senses in cognition and learning in children.

Other similar out-of-the-box themes and perspectives were also presented at the conclave.

Chittranjan Kaul, Director, Centre for Learning Resources and Samvaad Counselling Centre, Pune, stressed on the importance of ignorance as a ‘value’ for educators, where as John Jay Bonstingl, Founder of International Quality Movement, Bonstingl Leadership, Colombia, USA, advised on the need to make a difference in students’ life for better learning.

With sessions on “Re-imagining Education’’ and “Decoding Kids,” the conclave became a thought-provoking hub for new thoughts and approaches to education. The response from the audience was equally energetic.
