Prof. Alison Gopnik, Gowri Ishwaran, Usha Albuquerque, Ruchi Seth, Paramjit K Narang, Dr. Tamara Philip and Nandini Chatterjee Singh call for improved learning methods in Indian schools to take EDUCATION BEYOND BOUNDARIES

New Delhi - The third edition of the annual XSEED 'School of Tomorrow' Conference 2011, the biggest initiative engaging top education leaders, today witnessed pioneer educationists share a common platform to stress on the need for improving quality in education through investments in better teaching methods and processes. Under the theme of "Education beyond Boundaries", the conference saw participation from over 1500 school heads and business leaders across New Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Hyderabad.

"The time for quality in school education has come. Parents, employers and government are demanding quality outcomes from schools; students who can demonstrate deep grasp of concepts, better communication, and an overall confidence that is visible immediately. Such an education is now in the reach of every school irrespective of its access to resources. The 'School of Tomorrow' conference showcased the research insights, innovative case studies and practical solutions that substantiate these ideas for practicing education leaders. Our own on-the-ground experience of working with over 700 schools across the country has shown that the key to quality is a superior learning method that emphasizes experimentation, questioning and feedback supported by tools, training and assessment - not expensive hardware or infrastructure", said Ashish Rajpal, Founder & Managing Director - iDiscoveri.

Prof. Alison Gopnik, author of books on child psychology and a renowned researcher in the field of children's learning from the University of California, delivered a thought provoking key note address on cognitive abilities of children and highlighted the need for uninhibited exploration, experimentation and reasoning in the education space.
The conference in each city featured a panel of educationists, business and thought leaders who are determined to revolutionise classroom teaching in the country. The panel discussion on 'Better Resources or Improved Methods- What Matters Most for School Quality' witnessed participation from noted visionaries like Usha Albuquerque, Media Personality and Career Expert; Ruchi Seth, Principal, Delhi Public School, Sushant Lok; Paramjit K Narang, Director, Pathways School, Gurgaon; Dr. Tamara Philip, Woodstock School and Nandini Chatterjee Singh, Associate Professor, National Institute of Brain Research.

During the conference, innovative case studies that have broken conventional methods and demonstrated visible results on children's learning were presented.
The first edition of School of Tomorrow in 2009 was an instant success witnessing discussions from educationists like Vineet Joshi, Chairman CBSE; Rajendra Pawar - Chairman NIIT. School of Tomorrow, 2010 was a resounding success with over 1200 attendees. Prof. David Perkins of Harvard University delivered the international keynote address. Other notable speakers included Prof. Peter Senge (MIT Sloan School of Management), Gurcharan Das (Writer and Ex CEO P&G) who discussed the need for change in thinking out approaches to learning and connecting with the needs of the society.
