Any nation has three dimensions- its economy, its political structure and the educational system upon which the growth of nation depends. A country’s education system has a crucial role to play in both the political structure and economy. On the other hand the corporate world is also affected by the educational system. If country’s education system is good enough for the masses that would eventually join the corporate world, this would benefit the economy as a whole. ‘Knowledge is a potential power’. This new saying never fails to justify its significance in its actual terms. Knowledge empowers a person by making him literate, confident and aware. This helps him in establishing himself as an individual and in the making of his personality. Corporate world is a structured business form. Education system shapes the corporate world as it makes a person capable enough to organize and manage things. Their skills are honed so that they can use these skills properly and fully. Education teaches a man value of things and discipline in life makes him creative enough to deal with the corporate world. Innovative ideas, better policies, optimum utilization of resources are boons of education. These stand helpful in the corporate world. So, we can say that a country’s education system plays a vital role in the betterment of the corporate world. Now-a-days, there are many professional courses available such as delivered by top MBA colleges like JIMS Kalakji by which professionals acquire the skills required to succeed in their corporate careers. People are opting these courses from the very beginning of their adulthood as they are very determined and focused. This leads to a pressure on these corporate to serve quality products and services without an increase in losses. The quality of these products and services can be improved with the help of professionals only. These professionals are again getting their skills from education system. Thus a nation and people od nation should strive for a better education system where people understand that ‘knowledge is potential power’ and ‘application of that knowledge is actual power’.

The Flipped classroom is a new technology in education blending online material into the traditional classroom model. It is a new pedagogy in which typical homework and lecture materials are replaced by short video lectures. It helps the students to view these sessions at home and make class room discussions more lively and interactive through debates and problem solving sessions. All lectures can be viewed online both at home and class that increases confidence and learning among students. It creates an opportunity for differentiated roles to meet the needs of students through variety of instructional activities. Students can view same lecture video number of times and understand it properly that gives them greater ownership over their learning.
Flipped classroom includes opportunity for students to gain first exposure prior to class, focus more on in-class cognitive activities, learn to correct misconceptions and organize new knowledge in such a manner that it is more accessible for future use. It provides a mechanism of feedback cycle as the teacher is always available to guide students what they have learnt online. Flipped technique is used in variety of ways- online classroom experience, full time virtual schools, or some version of digital learning in traditional brick-and-mortar schools. It leads to metacognition associated with deep learning.
Lecture videos can be either created by the instructor and posted online or selected from an online repository. During class sessions faculty serves as an advisor to students who are ready with knowledge of podcasted lecture videos so as to involve class more into collaborative effort, projects and workshops. Here the students have full liberty to rewind, stop and rerun a lecture as per choice giving more freedom to one-to-one teaching as in class, some portions may be missed due to unclear concepts. Preparing a lecture video is however an additional task for a faculty requiring new skills. It is enabling students to not only cover study material but also master it.
There is no unique and exact model for flipped classroom as it can be any class arrangement providing pre-recorded lectures followed by assignments and activities. After viewing one or series of short lecture videos, online quizzes or assignments can also be conducted to test what students have learnt online as then the student can immediately rerun the video after test and correct doubts based on online results. However flipped technique is still lacking in areas having poor internet access or schools and colleges of low income and less facilities implying currently its adapted and most effective only in private or upper-income suburban schools and colleges. But gradually with everything going online, flipped classroom pedagogy will be the most widely adapted one throughout the globe as education then will not be limited to classroom teaching but accessed online from anywhere, anytime as per student’s convenience.

Cosmos… It has bestowed upon us blessings galore. It has made us as if we are no less than a microcosm of the entire universe. It has given us the beautiful gift of life to enjoy and endless possibilities of what we are as a being. So kind, generous and liberal it is that it sets us free to choose so many things starting from the most basic of our individual and social actions to how we reap our happiness and joys.
Isn’t it amazing that we have the power to grow and develop ourselves in the ways we wish to, that we have the power to choose the quality of our life and how we shape our destiny in all? But let us ask ourselves for once, how many of us exercise this mighty right in true sense? How many of us consciously make efforts to head ourselves into a state of continuous bliss?
Some might say that they are definitely doing the needful as they indulge in feel-good activities like having their favourite food, interacting with people who love them, giving back to the society and much more. But here’s the catch, the cosmos is very clever. It has connected every single dot of our life to make one big picture, so it just doesn’t have to be one instance or particular things which we have to choose to make ourselves joyful, it is how we consciously perform even our routine activities which will head us forward in our pursuit of happiness.
We often hear many-a-times that life is a mirror, what we send out as our actions come back to us as a profound reflection in some or the other way. This rule applies to everything, whether small or big, whether good or bad and holds very much true, for what goes around will definitely come around. Acting thoughtfully is thus the key. It means we should not let incidents simply pass away in fortuity but we should start attaching our actions with conscious thoughts. This will make our life go into auto pilot mode to achieve the happiness we deeply think we deserve and intend to have.
We should remember always is that we are an embodiment of the enormous power that the cosmos is. Naturally selected, we are undeniably the most sophisticated race of animals present on this planet, then why don’t we embrace this by putting our consciousness and awareness in the doings that have an impact on our life as a whole? Why don’t we respond actively or proactively instead of giving mindless reflexes, reacting in the heat of the moment?
If you’ve never asked these questions from yourself then now is the time to do so. Reflect (but beware of monitoring) and change for the better so that you can live up to the fullest, amplifying your potential and magnifying possibilities (and not just the probabilities) of what you can become. Wait no more and unleash the power of the blessing that cosmos has given to you- consciousness.

Humanism is a paradigm that emerged in the 1960s, which focuses on the liberty, dignity, and potential of humans. The humanistic perspective is a psychological approach which attempts to emphasize on empathy and stresses on the good and humane nature. The concept of Humanism deals with regard to the philosophical and moral analytics that focuses on the value and intrinsic role of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers critical thinking and rationalism over acceptance of dogma or superstition. The Maslows Theory- Hierarchy of Needs also propagates humanism and the humanist psychology as the study of personality while focusing on subjective experiences, free will, and the inner drive toward self-actualization.
Every person entails within him the potential to transform his life. A situation illustrating the humanistic perspective is for a person to analyze and make the best of their strengths rather than focussing on their faults. When people think something is beyond their capacity, they will fail to act. Once they realize their own worth and the fact that they can do something, they will take action. Amidst a blizzard of challenges and bitter struggles, we may be faced with two options to be negligent and apathetic or to assume the responsibly and transform the situation. The only way to overcome the hardships and build a state of indestructible happiness is by maintaining a high life force for self and others. Life is limited we must not begrudge it. Encouragement and guidance serve as the driving force that helps to identify the thing which is holding us back and rouse our courage.
Following the unethical and immoral path may help people to gain the treasures of wealth; however, it does not guarantee lifetime happiness and strong bonds in life.
As an important element of humanism, we must never fail to express our gratitude towards others. Remember to smile while interacting with others. A smile is a powerful tool to break through any adversity.
Everyone prefers to be around people who are energetic and optimistic. When we are brimming with a positive life force and great enthusiasm, we can shine like a sun illuminating with a light of hope.
Technology hasn’t just helped shape the core industries today but has effectively become an essential tool, one that can’t be removed. Our reliance has significantly increased with the speedy rise of technological breakthroughs. If you go back a couple of years further to 2014, the world got introduced to 3D printing, which has now become a widespread reality.
Technology has influenced nearly all aspects of life today, and education is certainly no different. Over the years we have seen an ever increasing rise in the use of technology in the classroom teaching, which is largely down to instructive and technological trends. We don’t only have a better understanding of how we become skilled at, but we now have the technology to support it.
To see a better use of technology in classroom teaching or lectures, we must begin by empowering the teachers, who are directly linked in enhancing the skill set and knowledge of the students through his/her pedagogical tools. In the past, teachers have questioned the importance of technology in education in which they believe unfocused their attention away from teaching. Teachers want schools and higher educational institutions to initiate technology that allows them to do a lot more with fewer resources.
Technology has now paved its journey into nearly all levels of education, and it’s necessary that we look at it as a helpful tool for contemporary education.. Teachers and parents, who are not yet fully influenced by technology, rightly want to know why it’s imperative to use technology in the classroom.
Below are the highlighted reasons why technology has been positioned at the forefront of the modern education:-
1. Student’s insist technology in the classroom
2. Teachers want the use of technology in the classroom as it makes their work faster yet effective.
- Audio and Visual aids always help grab attention of the students which further makes it more recallable for both the teachers as well as the students.
- Students tend to understand in a better fashion by animated characters or pictorial presentations as it more impactful.
- Modern-day teacher are more tech-savvy which helps them in implementing video viewing as a part of their pedagogy.
- Students today want much more that traditional classroom lectures, which makes the class less interactive and boring.
- Increase in technological advancements such as smart-boards, ERPs etc has led to a better platform for more video viewing in classroom teaching
- Technology allows students to acquire information at their own pace by replaying the videos or powerpoints as many times as they like and at any time they like.
- Videos account for 79% of the internet use, which makes it evident that there is a pool of knowledgeable videos which can support the classroom teaching.
- It leads to less time consumption, which supports the fast moving generation and its pace.
