Chirag Agarwal, Founder Director, EarlyVentions – Chain of Preschools, Emphasizes on Importance of Teacher Training

“We have a unique concept of peer-to-peer learning, where teachers can learn from their peers,” says Chirag Agarwal, Founder Director, EarlyVentions – Chain of Preschools, in an interview with Pratik Ghosh, Content Writer, ArdorComm Media at the ‘New Normal – Education Leadership Summit & Awards 2023’ #ELSABengaluru #ELSAKarnataka

How are you feeling to witness the New Normal Education Leadership Summit and Awards in Bangalore?

It’s a wonderful experience, as always. I’ve been associated with ArdorComm Media since its inception, and it’s always been a delight to be a part of this event.

As you know, the theme of our event is “New Normal Karnataka.” What’s your take on this?

Well, the new normal is already set in. We are talking about technology, AI, Chat GPT, and whatnot. So definitely, that is the new normal. As educators, we need to embrace it with both hands, and that’s the way forward.

How are you implementing technology in your chain of preschools?

Of course, preschools are called play schools for a reason, so too much technology cannot be implemented as interpersonal and social skills are essential. However, I do agree that we need to use technology as a tool to enhance the educational aspect.

How do you take care of teacher training?

Teacher training is crucial because if the teacher is not adequately trained, she cannot effectively educate others. We have a unique concept of peer-to-peer learning, where teachers can learn from their peers. Additionally, we have our own training team that takes care of day-to-day training. Training is implemented from the centre manager level down to the teaching assistants and other staff.

What’s your take on skill development for this generation?

Skill development is the most important aspect of education. Skills are required in everyday life, from basic tasks like holding a glass of water correctly to more complex ones like ironing clothes or getting ready for school. As educators, we need to teach life skills alongside academic knowledge.

In events like these, where education leaders, EdTech players, and government officials come together, how do they benefit the education sector?

Such events provide an opportunity to connect with people, build networks, and exchange ideas. The integration of the education fraternity with the government can lead to meaningful collaborations and innovations in the education sector.

ArdorComm Media Group has completed two years of its existence, any message or wishes for us?

Congratulations to ArdorComm Media for completing two successful years. I wish you all the very best and hope that you continue to excel in hosting events that allow us to connect and network with so many people.
