    • Peace is possible

      Sep 22, 2016

      "Peace is possible" is the title of a campaign organised by a non profit organization that I recently became a part of. They organised this as an observation in connection with the International Peace Day on 21 September. The campaign aimed at sharing and creating awareness & thoughtfulness on how each one of us can contribute to make Peace possible.

      Though have heard of this day and read about its importance but never got an opportunity to put my thoughts together because for some reason I have always felt such days like International Peace day, World Environment Day, AIDS Day and many more ...

    • Little Things

      Sep 22, 2016

      Thank you once again for an overwhelming response and immense support!!!

      Each one of us have our own way of getting inspired, motivated and keep that tiny little spark running within us. For me and I am sure for most of you, reading and reflecting on quotations have had a lot of impact. Very recently, as I was surfing through different quotations and finding an apt one for one of my training sessions, I found this one which took me back to my graduation days where I left the last post and inspired me to write this one.....

      "Enjoy the little things each day, for one day you may look back and re...

    • Students's Poetry

      May 13, 2016

      It's not all about me is a poem written by the students at Learning arena as part of creative writing assignment. The key feature of this writing prompt is the student had to write a poem in which every first sentence in the poem starts with the letters of his name and the challenge was poem should not be about the student himself. This helped him identify not only his skill in writing poems but also his creative thinking skills. c0cc89_1de5cab662ac40ec976dca6d42a0287e-mv2.jpg

      A smile is like a heaven,

      Don't break the laughter, it'll be like hell.

      It's all the smile you got,

      The smile is woven on your lips,

      Yelling your soul to smile,

Regardless of the group size the learning environment should pr...

    • How Technology can shape learning?

      Jan 03, 2016

      No generation is more at ease with online, collaborative technologies than today’s young people— “digital natives”, who have grown up in an immersive computing environment. Where a notebook and pen may have formed the tool kit of prior generations, today’s students come to class armed with smart phones, laptops and iPods. Nearly two-thirds (63%) of survey respondents from the public and private sectors say that technological innovation will have a major impact on teaching methodologies over the next five years. It will become ever more interwoven in the fabric of academic life.
