A TED TALK session with Kiran Bir Sethi, where she made everyone realize that real learning is embeded in the real world context. How " I CAN " bug makes a big impact in designing solution to diverse range of social problems around.
Kiran Bir Sethi,She Started up a school called as "river side" in Ahemdabad (capital city of the state GUJRAT), India
She being a design graduate, thought of applying Design Process in school education system. Where she could show efficiency in children by embedding the " I CAN " bug at younger age. Through her planned practices and activities she dint only increased confidence in children regarding their abilities to bring change in system around them but also charged their minds in logical thinking, resulting in higher performance in Mathematics English and Science.
She explains children journey of Aware, Enable, Empower i.e Feel-Imagine-Do..
She believes if children are empowered, they can do wonders around.
And when at younger age they understand the POWER of "I CAN" it wont take time later in their lives to turn it into " WE CAN "
Below is the site of her school riverside explaining the whole process.
SO, now after getting inspired we all as young designers with OpenIDEO crew can start implementing better ideas at school levels to turn them into a Responsible Citizen.
