Sridevi Parthasarathy's curator insight, November 20, 2013 11:43 PM

The most powerful thought this article provokes, is the need to empower children to feel independent and take pride in their ideas. Education is no longer about a tedious transfer of information but facilitating innovation in learning and debating differences. This will call for  a radical change in the way we view our education system, especially in India. We claim to mimic the traditional Gurukul system  which called for experiencing life while learning from it; but we go against every construct of experience and believe that recall of knowledge is way to suceed. The Social Media could contribute greatly in this process of debate, as long as we put in regulators to help people focus.

A Principal's Reflections: Relevant Leadership for Today's Schools

A Principal's Reflections: Relevant Leadership for Today's Schools | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Over the past three years I have, in my opinion, dramatically grown as a school leader.  The catalyst for a significant portion of this growth was my embracement of social media as a powerful leadership tool.  For me social media opened the door to a variety of pathways to enhance my ability to lead a comprehensive high school is a way that was more relevant, meaningful, and impactful.
