    Conflict Resolution & Sustainable Development Goals

     

    On 23rd February 2019 a team from Ahlcon International School, Mayur Vihar came to our school to conduct a three hour (11:30 am to 2:30 pm) workshop on Conflict Resolution- Strengthening and motivating teams’ and ‘Sustainable Development Goals - how to integrate them into our curriculum’.

     

    The first half of the workshop was dedicated to training the present teachers on Conflict Resolution. The session was taken by Mrs. Anju Gupta who is heading the pre-primary and primary section in Ahlcon International School. She spoke in length about the major causes, repercussions and what changes we need to bring about in ourselves to be able to handle conflict better. She stressed how conflict is not bad as they help us to grown as human beings- so conflict is necessary. It was an interesting session as the trainer asked the teachers to enact conflict-ridden scenarios to drive her point home. 

     

    Mrs. Sunita Rajiv who is an assistant headmistress of pre-primary section took the second half of the session which was focused on Sustainable Development Goals. Ahlcon International School believes that it is a school with a SDG soul and started their journey with SDG’s in 2016; hence they are in a very good position to guide our school as we preparing to start ours. The session basically focused on how to successfully integrate the SDGs into our teaching and learning process and help the school embrace the idea wholeheartedly and to align our endeavors with SDGs.

     

    It was a very informative workshop, which our teachers will definitely benefit from in the long run. 

      Managing Behavior Problems in Adolescents

      Youth today love luxury, have bad manners, no respect for older people and talk nonsense when they should be working. This was what Shakespeare wrote about adolescents and youth in the 16th century.

      On February 22, 2019 Counsellor/Teacher-Counsellor were invited to the India International Education Conclave (IIEdC) on “Managing Behavior Problems in Adolescents – New Challenges” which was being organized by ICTRC at India International Centre. A star studded panel graced the discussion panel- the directors of ICTRC Prof. R. K. Saraswat, Dr. V S Ravindran and Mr. Keshav Singh, who are leading experts and have been working in the field of counseling for over 20 years. 

       

      The panel made it a point to make us all understand that it is not the adolescents who are at fault but the contemporary socio-cultural environment. Today’s adolescents are growing up in a rapidly changing social, cultural and educational environment. They are confronted with the new age of information, communication and entertainment. All these put tremendous pressure on adolescents. This is a crucial period when adolescents need proper guidance, support of caring adults and good role models. In the absence of these, adolescents become rebellious, aggressive, violent, and anti-social and indulge in all types of high-risk behaviors. Students spend whole of their adolescent period in school and therefore the task of bringing them up as mentally healthy individuals falls summarily upon the school. The objective of this conclave was to equip school counsellors/teacher-counsellors with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude for fulfilling this noble responsibility.

      The last part of the Convention was reserved for suggestions and feedback if any and the certificates were distributed the participants.  It was a very informative seminar where in the spokesperson covered all the basics related to Behavior Problems in Adolescents- from myth to recent researches being done in the field. It was a golden opportunity for all the school counsellors.

According to Mr. Pant, over the last decades, the importance of computational thinking has been appreciated and now there is near universal agreement amongst futuristic thought leaders that the young must be empowered with Conceptual Thinking as an important constituent of their education.  The coming era is the era of smart machines and AI. Thus it is the need of time to design our education system accordingly. The need to do this in massive scale is to prepare the Indian Youth for the 4th industrial age driven by Artificial Intelligence.
