Fall-2018 Change Story Video

Project 1: Encouraging inter-disciplinary methods to enhance learning outcomes

Strategy 1: Implementing concept of Pick-a-Lane

Academic topics from different fields and branches are given to the students, where each student picks up a random topic and starts learning for the same. Given a week’s time, they come and give daily updates about their learning. After a week, the students realise whether they want to continue the same topic or choose another topic. They also share it with the other students and spread their ideologies about the topic they have prepared for. Topics are chosen such that they are beneficial to them, irrespective of their major.

Strategy 2: Initiate the notion of Learn and Build

A unique concept which focuses mainly on experimental learning through scalable hands-on models. Students are taught basic concepts which proves to be a necessity learning in their everyday life. These are concepts that are being learnt in the academics and made into models. This allows learning of core concepts along with it’s implementations, thereby ensuring a good foundation for them.

Project 2: Motivating the students to take up challenges and create a network.

Strategy 1: Helping students know the world! Broadcasting!!

Due to busy schedule, students often miss out on the important news, current affairs, upcoming and trending technologies, general knowledge which is a must for them. We can try to make sure that those students share their knowledge and information to their peers and ensure an environment where gaining on knowledge is at its peak.Videos relating to the above-mentioned topics will be shown to them. This will in turn enhance the learning outcomes.

Strategy 2: Having informal meetings, usually related to technology…Barcamp

Barcamp is a user generated conference, participatory where the content is provided by the participants. We have inter-disciplinary topics, where students can share plethora of ideas and views, making them more prone to the world of technology. We also conduct debates and/or after each session, which enhances student interest and keen participation. Hand-outs of the key points will be given at the end of the session for them to look up to. The above two strategies ensures that students mingle with students of other branches as it involves them to interact with other individuals and know about their ideologies as well.

Project 3: Improvising their experience technically

Strategy 1: Helping them understand concept in a much efficient way, Conceptual Learning using Each One Teach One technique

We teach the concepts applicable to students through models & simulations to make them understand it’s working. The models are hand-made, and the simulations are tested for compatibility on all basis i.e., it can be understood by a beginner as well as novice/professionals. We give a chance to everyone to share their knowledge of a subject/concept/topic to the audience. This is made so that everyone is allowed an opportunity to show-case their knowledge as well as an opportunity to teach. Individuals/Students often understand when they are taught by their friends or peers. Taking this idea into consideration, we have introduced a new way of helping students learn the concepts better.

Strategy 2: Spreading awareness about the present technology by implementing the innovative idea of Teach the Trending Technology

Students usually come across a scenario where they have no idea of the conversation on the topic on technology. To overcome this situation which is due to lack of our knowledge on the subject matter, teach the trending technology is planned so that everyone is updated what’s happening in the current world. This is implemented through informative sessions, video tutorials & a few hands-on sessions.

Project 4: Eliminating the mental and physical stress

Strategy 1: Innovative means of providing information to students by conducting Knowledge Charades.

We know that students these days are unaware of current affairs lack general knowledge & the new ways of learning such as cyber hunt etc. So we came up with the improvisation of dumb-charades called the knowledge charades in which the students will be enacting anything related to a famous personality or a new trend/topic that is worth sharing. After the students guess the right answer, unknown facts and mind striking information about the topic/personality will be shared, thereby making way for fun-learning.

Strategy 2: Encouraging students to dream big and to have a vision through their ideas and discover their crafty skills.

Here students can come up with their crazy ideas to change something in this society irrespective of whether it can be implemented or even given a thought about it, and share or present it to others and get their insight about it. They can get crafty and explain their ideas through their work. This helps students in developing their imaginary and creative skills.

Strategy 3: Introducing them to the world of Literature.

Students can also express themselves through their poems, articles and short stories make use of this opportunity to share it with others. We give them inspirational books to read and this in turn inculcates values in them. After reading a story they share it with those who would rather prefer listening than reading. They can also enact small plays which enhances their innovative skills.
