Boxed in by convention and walking the trodden path, we often forget that there are roads less travelled and it is our duty as educators to discover them and open up a rich world to fellow educators and students across the world.
The ScooNews Global Educators Fest 2017 Unconference is an attempt to test unchartered waters. To look afresh at the way minds congregate, ideas churned and disseminated.
The Unconference will not only be unique in the way it will be conducted but also in its aftermath. When more than 800 education leaders descend in one place you can imagine the electric atmosphere charged with ideas and buzzing with passion to bring about positive change.
The Unconference will be a promising breeding ground of new ideas and initiatives for increasing the education coverage or the efficiency of delivery.
India’s largest education brainstorm will be the crucible of new policy initiatives which will hopefully inspire governments to undertake educational reforms.
Scoonews Global Education Fest 2017 aims to be:
Inclusive: The event will take along educators, edupreneurs, Government, Media, Social entrepreneurs to encourage meaningful representation from all stakeholders.
