5 Defining Characteristics of a 21st Century Teacher

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of blist.

New Changes in the NCERT Syllabus 2019: what that means for students, parents, teachers, and schools.

For years, the National Council of Education Research and Technology (NCERT) textbooks have stood frozen in time. Unchanged, except for some cosmetic adjustments, they have seldom seen any upgradations. Frequent omissions and errors, repeated year upon year, is not an uncommon phenomenon.

Design Thinking: The Key to the Future
