“This approach removes the fear of examinations from children’s minds, which is a boon for the learning system,” says Dr. D. Senthilkumar, Principal of T I Matriculation Higher Secondary School in an interview with Pratik Ghosh, Content Writer, ArdorComm Media Group at the ‘New Normal – Education Leadership Summit & Awards 2023’ #ELSAChennai #ELSATamilNadu

How are you feeling to witness this new normal Education Leadership Summit and Awards in Chennai?

This has been an excellent experience for me because this is not the first time I’m attending a program conducted by ArdorComm. A similar kind of program was conducted by them in Delhi, Gurugram, and this is my second time participating. I also participated in their online sessions. It’s quite exciting to be a part of this program because of the quality of the speakers and the harmonious group that brings a lot of valuable insights. Every time I attend this program, I try to implement something at school. It’s really exciting, informative, and productive too.

What’s your understanding of the National Education Policy (NEP) and how are you implementing it in your school?

The National Education Policy 2020 has been passed by Parliament and is anticipated to be implemented from the next academic year. The crux of the policy is reflective thinking and learning for children. It emphasizes self-evaluation by students, evaluation by peers, parents, and teachers. The aim is to provide a comprehensive evaluation report, a holistic progress card, without scores or grades. This approach removes the fear of examinations from children’s minds, which is a boon for the learning system. The outcome will be confident children who can enter the workforce without difficulty. Gradually, these children will contribute to the Indian community on a national and international level.

How do forums like this, which bring together education leaders, EdTech players, and the government, help the education sector?

Our institution has shifted from a state board curriculum to CBSE. We need to embrace technology in the curriculum to enhance the learning process. The traditional chalk and teach method where teachers dominated the classroom is outdated. It’s important for teachers, students, and everyone to sit together and discuss various topics. Technology helps children with visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning. Multiple intelligences need to be addressed so that children can learn better. This empowers both teachers and students. Collaboration between technology industries and education is crucial for an effective learning process at the national level.

What message do you want to give to ArdorComm Media Group?

ArdorComm Media has been doing a wonderful job in the education sector. It’s an empowerment for all the leaders and trustees of educational institutions. Being a part of this organization and participating in programs like this empowers and enhances the quality of institutions. It’s a great opportunity for the Indian education system to scale up and make its mark at the international level.
