Panel presentation :

Education supposed to be successfully imparted to children in locally relevant and culturally appropriate ways. The responsibility to educate the children has been put largely on schools in almost all the societies across the world. Schools in turn put all the requisite demands to a teacher who creates the space for direct interaction between the learner and the knowledge.

India being a country of diversity, rich cultural and religious heritage challenges the teacher to create the appropriate spaces of learning inside the classroom. This diversity should be catered in such a ways that it becomes the strength of our education system. Teachers hope to foster human connection and strengthen intra-cultural and inter-cultural ties within and beyond the classrooms. Every class, every group, has its own distinctive dynamics, determined by the individuals in it. Most of the discussion about diversity focuses on the following forms of marginalization: race, class, gender, and sexual orientation — and rightfully so, given the importance of these forms of difference. In fact, students come to the classroom with different backgrounds, sets of experiences, cultural contexts, and world views.

Making learning possible for everyone is the goal, and is often a challenge. It is our professional responsibility to make learning equally possible for all students.Additionally, issues of diversity play a role in how students and teachers view the importance of the classroom and what should happen there. Each individual whether student or teacher takes their share of learning as it stands relevant for their specific contexts. The major focus of the classroom interactions and school as a whole is to impart the relevant knowledge without burden.In this panel we urge to discover how Indian schools are utilising the strength of being locally relevant and culturally appropriate.
