"Dissent, more than being a simple manner of protesting, is an invitation to awareness. Through its art of questioning, the real task of dissent is to challenge and defeat the twin corruptions of democracy: imposed conformism and normalised complacency." - From The Disobedient Indian by Ramin Jahanbegloo

We can debate the past forever. But with CAB India takes a giant step to officially convert a constitutional democracy into a unconstitutional ethnocracy.

It's only the community of ...Educators, students, designers, programmers, techies , gamers, editors, animators , practitioners - who can contribute and build an open education movement.

Not university and institutions.

How do you create a self motivated learner..Someone asked today. There are many strategies - creating the right atmosphere and attitude, pushing for rigour.

And of course gamified learning

Students create a network game, chose their level, friends log in to the server and begin a competitive mental math game to save the penguins on

Integers, division, multiplication - it's all there. The penguin does a little trot in the end for the champion.

The truth is that whatever happened in #Maharashtra is a taste of the cheap, destructive tactics we have to deal with for the next four and a half years until the next general election. And maybe even after that.
A while yet for Yeats's immortal words to be true. If ever.

@milindoka says it well.. "Open source is a lifestyle"

Why didn't someone teach me 3D modeling earlier in my life..? Many 3d artists are asking this question. Its time we look at 3D as a subject in schools

How about instead of stuffing startups with money for the promise of AI that never actually materializes we take that money and pay for education for, you know, people who have actual real intelligence.

@michelle Digital education would be much better suited to improve teaching standards of teachers. Without quality teachers all this is still worthless.

@michelle

They can open the doors but without a proper instructor we would still fail the kids.

We need programs targeting current teachers to go in hand with this. One region where we currently fail.

We need more content to the standards if Byju app made freely available so kids can access it anywhere.

"e learning" in Rural Maharashtra

Scheduled load shedding is accompanied with random power cuts which last from ten minutes to four hours. Along with this, the fluctuation in power supply damages electronic equipment and teachers do not have the means to get these repaired.

A paradoxical situation exists, the government claims it is committed to digitising education yet is not able to provide the most basic infrastructure requirement of stable electricity.
