Digitization of Education


After a challenging school year of learning through video calls with a spotty internet connection, it is now apparent that the way we educate our children is ripe for innovation. This moment is an opportunity for school systems to be reflective, scrap the parts that don't work, and find new ways to reach students beyond the traditional education model. Yet, it's also a moment for parents to rethink the way their children learn and find strategic ways to best support them during this time so that they can reach their full potential. To achieve this, we need to leverage technology to engage students in ways they never have before.

To stay engaged, students need a way to mimic the in-classroom experience while they study from home. This engagement happens when students can learn through exploration, as if they were learning in a real-life laboratory. New technological developments are making this possible. We're seeing new educational platforms that use 3D simulations and virtual hands-on learning methods that allow students to interact with the material.

This technique is based on stereoscopy, a technology that combines special eyeglasses with a booster box to create a three-dimensional, interactive learning experience. Using this tool, students can learn twice as fast with a deeper understanding and better recall. By playing with scaled models, topics are depicted in the same way they exist in real life.

Learning by doing brings back the excitement and joy of learning. For example, if students were to learn about apples simply by reading about them, their understanding would be pretty limited and quickly forgotten. But if those same students could see, touch, taste, and smell apples, they would receive the necessary context that is grasped only through an interactive experience. By lighting up the senses through interaction, sustained learning is achieved. This is the joy of learning. The same level of understanding is achieved digitally through 3-dimensional, interactive learning. The more students interact by playing with the objects, the faster they can understand and remember the concepts behind the topic.

We know that rote memorization doesn't work because there is no engaging pattern or effort made to relate the content to students' lives. The solution to this problem, is that the curriculum must actively relate new knowledge to previous knowledge. This approach is essential for mathematics because each concept builds on the last. By clearly stacking concepts, students are consciously aware of their progress, encouraging them to keep going.

When students recognize these patterns, exploration becomes more like a treasure hunt. Students seek out the "why" behind the concept, helping them truly understand in a much deeper way. Just like experiencing an apple through one's five senses, the act of discovery helps students make connections and bridge ideas that build new pathways in their brains. This way, more brain connections are available when students need to recall the memory later on.

This solution for our children doesn't require an internet connection to access the content. This also makes blended learning possible to study at home by layering different methods that mimic the in-classroom experience. For instance, virtual labs and 3D videos coupled with online learning fundamentals such as quizzes and analytics guide students through multiple media to guide them through each concept thoroughly.

The ultimate result is two-fold; students master skills swiftly. Parents relax, knowing their children are engaged and actively reaching their academic goals. Together it's how we can strengthen our children's ability to thrive as they study from home.

Our education system is at an impasse. For students to continue to learn and grow, education needs to evolve digitally. Without digitization, the best scenario sees students maintaining the status quo. It, of course, presumes that students continue to practice and study using materials they can find, even if it's inadequate. While this would likely minimize further damage, it wouldn't help students grow.

Unfortunately, most students don't have access to supplemental resources, and the most likely outcome is regression. At the moment, some students are experiencing extreme physical and emotional stress. It is possible that without support, students can regress and begin the next school year even further behind than they were before school closures. In this situation, the knowledge loss can be rapid and set students behind for years to come.

This doesn't have to happen. In fact, with a high-quality digital platform, students can quickly remediate any learning loss that previously happened. With continued use, students can far surpass their previous levels and come out ahead during this time. Stereoscopic 3D learning could be one of the best opportunities for students to accelerate their academic growth.

These are the years that have made us who and what we are today.

There could not have been a better canvas than a helmet for us to share stories from the last 120 years. These limited edition helmets not only cater  to the safety, protection, comfort and style needs of riders but should also inspire the younger generation riders and non-riders to continue creating stories on their Royal Enfield motorcycles for many more years to come.

Sidnaaz fans ensure name change of the last song of their favorite pair : Adhura is now called Habit

Mumbai, 18th October, 2021: Since Saregama’s announcement of Adhura – the last song featuring the popular couple Shehnaaz Gill and the late Siddharth Shukla went up – the digital universe has been flooded with emotional reactions of all kinds. While the die-hard fans of Sidnaaz have expressed their absolute joy in getting to see their favorite duo on screen for one last time, they have also been very vocal in expressing their opinion about the name of the song being Adhura.  Over the last few days, the Saregama team received a lot of passionate feedback from the ardent fans asking them to rename it Habit, which was in-fact the original the name of the song, when it was first conceptualised.
Not one to let fan-speak go unheard, the team at Saregama has heeded their wishes and have now decided to call the song Habit. To this effect they have just released a new poster with the new song name, thereby making it official. This would be the first time perhaps when fans have ensured a song name is changed as per their wishes. It is also reflective of the immense popularity and love both the actors continue to share and the palpable excitement on the upcoming release of the song.  Habit has been composed by the master composer Arko and sung by the incomparable Shreya Ghoshal and Arko himself.
Habit is set to release on the Saregama Music YouTube channel and on all leading music apps on 21st October.

Krishna Bhatt talks about what she’s learnt from father Vikram Bhatt about direction

They say a director is usually the unifying creative force of a film. And one such force to be reckoned with is the young and enterprising Krishna Bhatt – director, creative maven and the daughter of the acclaimed filmmaker Vikram Bhatt. Known for shows like Untouchables, Maaya 2, Maaya 3 and Twisted 3, her work has also won her the Best Director at TalentTrack Awards, one of the most coveted awards for OTT content. But has growing up with a director and producer influenced her process of filmmaking? Krishna Bhatt opens up about what it’s really like working with Vikram Bhatt as she gears up for the release of her upcoming directorial ‘Sanak – Ek Junoon’ that will stream for free on MX Player starting, 16th October.

Mahesh Bhatt & Vikram Bhatt Present - Sanak Ek Junoon is the story of a small-town ambitious couple, Ajay (Rohit Bose Roy) and Ragini (Aindrita Ray) who relocate to Mumbai in the hope of a superior lifestyle. Ajay, a junior lawyer is offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity by his boss Mr. Shekhawat (Pawan Chopra), but in exchange, he must compromise on his values and part with what is dear to him.

The father-daughter duo has worked on ‘Sanak – Ek Junoon’ together, which is written by him and directed by her. Talking about working together and learning from him, Krishna Bhatt says, “There was something about filmmaking that really intrigued me and a chance encounter of working with my dad on a film made me make up my mind and I knew this is what I wanted to do. And since then, I have had the opportunity to work with him on several projects. There’s so much that I’ve learnt from him as a writer as well as a director - right from managing actors and crew on set to storytelling, getting the little nuances right, to molding the actors in a way that we want our characters to be. He’s very calm and composed whatever the situation be, and that’s something that I learn from him every single day.”

In addition to Rohit Bose Roy, Aindrita Ray and Pawan Chopra, Sanak – Ek Junoon also stars Rushad Rana, Rishi Deshpande, Antara Banerjee, Amaara Sangam, Tasneem Ali and Harpreet Jatail in key roles. All episodes will stream for Free on MX Player, starting 16th October and will be available in 5 languages – namely Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali.
