Meenakshi Uberoi is a freelance curriculum developer and a workshop leader based in Gurgaon, India: “Passionately involved in coaching, teaching and learning, I like to equip and assist teachers in creating innovative, challenging and enriching classroom environments that are conducive to students becoming life-long learners. I believe that students are at the heart of curriculum and therefore, the program should be student-led. This ensures they receive integrated, coherent learning experiences that contribute towards their personal, academic and professional learning and development. It is absolutely imperative for 21st-century educators to continually innovate, create and collaborate to make learning experiences further richer, relevant, engaging, accessible and closer to the real world.”

Meenakshi Uberoi: Dubai Global Forum – Melting Pot of Leaders in Transformation of Education

by Meenakshi Uberoi

Microsoft’s Global Forum in Dubai was a great ‘melting pot’ of leaders in education and policy makers who are driving transformation in education and supporting students to be equipped for work and life.

It was an honour for me to participate as a speaker in 3 sessions, namely, ‘Concepts & Contexts of Deep Learning’; ‘’Learning Design for Impact’ and ‘Technology Enriched Instruction’ and I am thankful to Microsoft worldwide & Microsoft India for entrusting me with such a great opportunity.… Visit the author's original post

Superpowers for PowerPoint – using of OfficeMix in the Inquiry Cycle

“SUPERPOWERS really?” my first thought when OfficeMix was introduced to me. At that time, I didn’t think anything could make PowerPoint better as it already gives my lessons an edge so what can this new tool do for me. Being curious by nature I thought I’ll give it a try. The introduction to add-in just said, ‘Office Mix allows you to turn your PowerPoints into interactive online lessons or presentations’ but that surely is being modest about it.  As I explored the superpowers of OfficeMix, I was able to generate many ideas of what I now do with my newly acquired superpowers.… Visit the author's original post

Fundamentals of Deep Learning

Education is at a major turning point. This is a time when the educators have started to question their teaching and learning practices. Questions like ‘Am I able to teach my students the length and depth of the content and the learning taking place is deep learning?’ These deliberations often cross the minds of thoughtful educators. But the big question then arises, ‘what is deep learning and what does it involve?’

Let me begin by defining what is deep learning?

Deep learning involves critical analysis of ideas, linking them to already known concepts, principles and experiences, which lead to personal understanding and long-term retention.Visit the author's original post
