The Internet Of Things- Changing The Game For Education And Learning.

There’s been so much buzz about the Internet of Things (IoT) lately –
But first let’s understand what IoT is all about.

“The Internet of Things is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and  other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data.”

Thus for today’s students, the day will come when a computer is no longer seen as a separate object or device. With technology very much entwined in the basic fabric of everyday living, our children might feel offended if their obedient room lamp doesn’t immediately acknowledge their presence by switching itself on. The realm of education is no exception to the IoT’s influence. Until now, educational technology has pivoted more or less around virtual conferencing and classrooms, online tutorials, and similar offerings. However, this is only the beginning.

Here are five ways the IoT can transform education:

A ROAD TO FIND YOUR PASSION

Passion is a strong emotion. It is not just a passing fancy but a thing which has become a part of you. Before you can say you have a passion, you need to first find that which you are passionate about. You need to go through the series of small interests to discover what you are truly passionate about. The following are the ways to ease it.

road to passion

Have the right perspective
Think back to your childhood
Take note of things you gravitate towards
Track the things you hate
Love everything you do
Face your fears

These insights usually are things we are very invested in or are passionate about. So list the things or jobs that you hate. Once you list and delete these options, your true passion will eventually become clearer to you. This is the elimination method were no matter what you are doing, how tedious the task is; bring your full enthusiasm into it. Your full attention helps you to think outside the box sometimes.

Identifying CORE career passion can reduce the rate of suicides!

This blog is dedicated for the aftermath of examination results, as many commit suicide believing that they have lost their dream career. 

Kids are becoming efficient and evolving as stronger human beings, even before we as adults, begin to accept that their mental maturity is higher than what we expect.

In this case, why not discuss various career opportunities, which is evolving and booming and help them draw a future plan? Students will be more than willing to accept the reality when they are not stressed.

Plan A, Plan B and Plan C..!! An intricate and exhaustive plan.

For instance, if a child wants to become a doctor and the marks secured does not match, there is an alternative way.

Please do the Root Cause Analysis of any wish or desire that is born . Below is an example to do this.

Desiring to become a doctor can be derived from following logical reasons:

1. Interested in relieving fellow human beings from pain.

2. Interested in analyzing applicable drugs and combinations. Thus be a source of relief.

3. Knowing the anatomy and functions of Human body.

4. Aspiring to be a specialized surgeon (Ex: Orthopedist, Cardiologist)

5. Dedicating oneself for serving people (Not aspiring for high remuneration)

If the reason is to wear a white coat, use a stethoscope and what not, then, one should contemplate if they are serious about their aspiration.

From the above reasons, except for becoming a surgeon, many other career streams offer the possibility to make their dream come true (Ex: Pharmaceutical, psychologists, psychiatrists, genetic experts and so on). Now you can explore and plan for your passionate career. This is what we call as Plan A, B and C! The story does not end with this. One has to be ready to pursue and be mentally prepared for uncertainty.

Efforts have to be channelized in the right way. Nothing is dearer than one’s life. Emotional support can also be successful when one has a solution for the other.

Concrete planning and honest efforts taken to know oneself, can solve any problem! 🙂

Counseling- has it become a joke?

Career Choice is one of the most difficult decisions to be taken.

That too in a country like ours, where few courses are especially meant for girls and boys 😛 I know that is bad huh!!

One important incident- one of my friend with great difficulty found a course with essential components as he expected and that would help him become a professional counselor. The course was to be pursued in a distance mode as he is employed.

Celebrating the success of discovering that course, he went on to enquire and the person at the university’s administrative office said, ” We do not take classes for single person, can you bring in ten more people?”

He stood blank for a while!

This is the state of education. A course is recognized through the university and if someone is passionate to pursue, then he has to do marketing for his passion as well? That was a new concept.

In this scenario, runs a debate on our TV, saying in what way counselors are helpful? Are they right or wrong:-/

Remuneration is considered a success in our society. Job satisfaction is the prime most need for sustainability. There are umpteen number of youngsters, who have left their passion behind just for the so called sophisticated life.

A balance has to be built in the system of satisfaction based earning. This comes with knowledge and clarity. Please be brave in exploring career options with an open mind.

Where there is will, there is way!
