JULY 18TH,2014

After our breakfast at Lemon Tree hotel, Bangalore, we visited Purnapramati School, Center for Integrated Learning. http://purnapramati.in/. This private institution emphasized a high degree of peer to peer instruction, collaborative learning and holistic/comprehensive education. We witnessed a special type of physical education game where some teachers participated.

For the afternoon session, Dr. Ashwin Mahesh of the Anad Foundation: (http://anafoundation.org), gave us a talk on the "Trends in Education in India". Dr. Mahesh presented various ways of solving societal problems like urban decay, transportation and environmental issues by using technology. He is a technologist and public policy researcher who has devoted his time to help his country India after serving as a NASA Astronomer and Climatic Science Specialist.

A Group dinner at  upscale Rajdhni-UB city ended the day.
