Innovative Educator

An initiative by a primary school teacher in Satasan village on Gujarat-Rajasthan border not only improved enrolment, but also changed the social perception towards dalits. In 2005, Ketan Vyas found that difference of dialects of teachers and students in this school in Banaskantha district was a major hurdle in taking the education process forward. He undertook the tedious task of writing a glossary of the local terms and this turned around the entire scenario. "The teachers started using these local words while teaching. The children were asked to conduct morning prayers and narrate stories in their dialect which the teachers picked up. We saw that the idea was working," said Vyas, who was recently awarded as an innovative teacher by Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A), Gujarat Innovative Education Council (GIEC) and Gujarat Council of Educational Research and Training (GCERT). Once the villagers realized that their wards were getting quality educati

She makes learning seem like child's play. Jagruti Pandya, a class VIII teacher at Prathmic Kanya Shala in Shikod Talav of Anand city has made maths easy for her students through a variety of innovative games.

You Can't Handle the Creative

In their 2011 study, " The Bias Against Creativity: Why People Desire But Reject Creative Ideas " by Jennifer Mueller (UPenn Wharton), Shimul Melwani (UNC) and Jack A. Goncalo (Cornell), they found that the vast majority of people (ie, pretty much everyone) has an unconscious bias against creative ideas that works to ignore and reject creative ideas that fall outside of our comfort zones. According to  a summary by , the researchers found that: "Creative ideas are by definition novel, and novelty can trigger feelings of uncertainty that make most people uncomfortable. People dismiss creative ideas in favor of ideas that are purely practical -- tried and true. Objective evidence shoring up the validity of a creative proposal does not motivate people to accept it. Anti-creativity bias is so subtle that people are unaware of it, which can interfere with their ability to recognize a creative idea." According to this research, job descriptions call
