  EDUCATORS DISCUSS ON A COMMON PLATFORM  
   
     
 

Neharika Vohra, Prof. Indian Institute of Science led the discussions between 22 school heads, student body representatives and education start-up senior executives. The session was facilitated with the assistance of Lisa Kensler, Assoc. Prof. of Educational Leadership, Auburn University, USA. The participation was enthusiastic as everyone took an honest look at what prevents discussions between schools about their methods and success outcomes.

 
     
 

Ms. Vohra ensured that the topics were systematically handled to achieve a positive way forward. Methods of sharing within schools and regional schools were discussed from a student and teacher perspective.

 
     
 

OF NOTE IS THE FACT THAT COMPETITION IS A CRITICAL FACTOR THAT DROVE SCHOOLS INTO SILOS AND PREVENTED FORMATION OF NETWORKS THAT COULD HAVE LED TO THE GREATER GOOD OF THE STUDENT.

 
     
 

Further underlying "ego" was an often unspoken aspect that resisted the collaborative process. "I am a leader myself so how can you be more right?" Since resources were limited for individual schools, only collaboration would ensure that such lectures and meetings could be amortized among schools. Draft proposal for next steps were proposed.

 
     
 

Connectivate's role of taking the unprecedented initiative of bringing together such a large number of school heads was unanimously appreciated.

 
     
 

Connectivate looks forward to conducting more such discussions in both offline and online forums with the sole objective of optimizing the collective intelligence to share and grow as a powerful community that can make a positive dent in the current educational system.
