Each one introduced himself / herself through their Favorite character (book/cartoon) and superpowers they wish to possess. The class had happy moments through stories and videos, followed by students sharing what made them happy. Towards the end of the session, we knew each other well and looked forward to our next day of collaboration as a team to learn from each other.
Indus Altum Innovation Summit, Day - 2
Our students embarked on a journey to self-discovery through identification of their strengths and weaknesses on Day 2. Through meditation, they imagined themselves in an environment that would make them happy. The details and creativity of the environment shared by each child surprised us. Even though we were restricted at homes during the lockdown, our minds travelled to interesting places in such a short duration. It was such a delight and joy!
Indus Altum Innovation Summit, Day - 3
After travelling to exciting and happy places in Day 2 session, our students were made aware that around their secure, safe, and happy homes, there is another environment that calls for help and support. Through stories and interactive conversations, we developed empathy for Mother Earth, as human actions and behaviour are harming it. Our students realized that for any change to occur, it should start from within and how they can start being global citizens who would venture into thinking globally and acting locally.
The day ended with responsibilities and lots of thoughts on how each one of us could make a difference and give back to the larger community.
Indus Altum Innovation Summit, Day - 4
Our last day culminated into a journey towards innovation . As a guest speaker, Ms. Ayesha Baig, (Director of Indus Altum Early Learning Center) inspired our students to be innovators and discussed how climate change is impacting us. The videos of 2 young innovators from Indus further motivated the students. We were amazed by the imaginative designs the students shared. Their empathy towards what is happening around them and the urge to support the larger community was well appreciated. Wishing our young learners, the very best and we look forward to meeting them again on another enriching and engaging journey.
The Innovations of our Students
"I don’t think outside of the box; I think of what I can do with the box."
Through empathy, research, critical thinking and collaboration, our young leaders made themselves aware of the challenges around them and their environment. Our 4-day workshop culminated with them designing a blueprint of products / services which would help the community be a better and safer place.
Our initial steps of design thinking leading to leaders of tomorrow who will think globally and act locally!
