Igniting the Spark in Learners

Join me at the Global Educators Fest 2019
Lina Ashar did her primary schooling in England before moving to Australia, where she acquired her Bachelor’s degree in Education from Melbourne’s Victoria College. In 1991, Lina came to India on a year-long sabbatical from college, while connecting with her roots, she landed up taking a school job in suburban Mumbai, an experience which changed her life. Back then, the education system in India was still grappling with a straitjacketed approach to education, leaving no scope for the overall development of the child, which was a complete contrast to the milieu of what she had studied. Lina chose to stay back in India to change the antiquated approach to education which existed then. Her conviction to offer an education which sets the child as its centre led her to start her first preschool in Bandra (Mumbai) in the year 1993 with 25 students.
The journey from one Kangaroo Kids Preschool to a network of Kangaroo Kids Preschools and Billabong High International Schools across 29 different cities in India as well as in Dubai, Maldives and Qatar has been a phenomenal one. Lina’s unique approach, injection of potent solutions and radical processes to ensure that the quality of education is improved was instantaneously well received and noted. Lina has been promoting and practising ‘topic-based learning’ since 2002, something that the Indian media lauded the Finland education system for, very recently. Lina has been extremely passionate about creating a purpose of learning and allowing children to be thinkers, innovators, problem solvers and to orchestrate experiences that will result in their overall development.
With an intention to spark human greatness in every student, Lina was the first in the Indian education industry to introduce a learner-centric methodology and introduce innovative ways of learning by providing an integrated activity and theme-based learning. The industry has recognised and awarded Lina several times over for her unique and meaningful contributions to the sector, notable among them being:
  • A leading woman in education at the Women Leaders in India Awards 2015 by iiglobal
  • Nationwide winner of the Best K12 innovative curriculum by Franchise India 2015
  • Alumni Excellence winner by Australian High Commission 2015
  • Voted by over 500,00 people to the MTC Global Top 10 Thinkers’ – 2015 among more than 35 nominees from different walks of life whose work has a significant impact in their sector, as determined by the independent Board of Jury at MTC Global HQ.
  • Lifetime Education Leadership Award by EduWorld 2014
  • Key Speaker at the symposium of Indian Career Education and Development Council (ICEDC) 2014 at the American School of Bombay
  • Panellist at The Economic Times Future of Learning Summit 2014
  • Awarded Leading Women Entrepreneur Recognition at several fora between 2010 and 2014, including Times of India and iGlobal.
Lina dreams of a society in which every child enjoys the right to a joyful childhood and quality education.

HAPPY TEACHERS MAKE A HAPPY CLASSROOM

As teachers, we are the greatest influence on our students during the school day. Teachers have long known that success in life isn’t measured by their salary but rather the impact they make on the world. But success is also about happiness.

Have you ever asked any teacher why they show up to work every day? If you have, you probably heard something like “for my students” and because my kids are my purpose.

Most educators are selfless in their pursuit of a bright, promising future for their learners. When students score well on projects and exams, demonstrate critical thinking and display signs of empathy and compassion, teachers are happiest and happy teachers will directly lead to a happy classroom.
Happy teachers produce better performing and high achieving students who lead to grateful, supportive parents, and who doesn’t want that?

Happiness and a sense of purpose go hand in hand. Technology cannot make up for an inspiring and motivated teacher who can be the pulse of her classroom. It is not smartboards that can create ripples of happiness, it is a caring and a happy teacher who touches the lives of 50 robust children and who can spread sunshine as the essential ingredient of happiness.
To make the classroom happy one should remember that not only should student happiness be the aim of education, but the teacher’s happiness should be the aim of education.
‘A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child – Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’

Do Schools Kill Creativity - Aysha Tak

This question has been the talk of the town for a while now. Creativity is as important in education as Literacy. However, children are being taught that it's important to do things the right way rather than giving it a try and if wrong, make necessary changes. Being creative means that you have to be willing to be wrong and that you're willing to try and the education system treats being wrong as the worst thing possible. In doing this, we are taking away a child's natural urge to ‘give it a go’.

All education systems globally have a ‘hierarchy’, with math and language at the top, social sciences in the middle and arts at the bottom. This is because of the childhood education the system was developed to satisfy the industrial revolution of the 19th century, where math and science were essential for jobs, but we need to understand that times have changed.

While once people just needed school for a good job, then a bachelor degree, and now these degrees are no guarantee for a job. Degrees have had a form of inflation over time, and this shows it is shifting too quickly. Having children go to school just to attend university is not really equipping them to work any more!

 We know 3 things about intelligence

  • It is diverse – we think in many ways – visually, in sound, movement and abstract, being a few. 
  • It is dynamic – original ideas come about from the interaction of many different ways of seeing things.
  • It is distinct – people have their way of doing things – Ken’s example is a ‘problem student’ who couldn’t sit still at school, but when moved to a dance school fit in fine – she needed to move to think. Her dance skills went on to give her immense fame and fortune, bringing value to millions of people. 
In modern times, she would probably have been given ADHD medication and been put told to calm down.

We need to redefine our education system – our current way is one of ‘strip-mining’ our children for the most desired properties, in the same way, we mine the Earth for ore. We now need to use our imaginations and creativity wisely, to face an uncertain and problematic future. We may not see this future close and clear, but we do need to equip our children to conquer it in the best ways possible.

Human Nature

The nature that a human possesses is far similar to that of animals regarding territory. Most human beings do not go beyond their own territory. Instead, every human being must explore in other territories.

Everyone is a lion in his own kingdom, but one must not become a cat in other's territory. This is a very important quality in all human beings that they must not hesitate while discovering another territory.

For this purpose, one must have the confidence to show his talent in the other area. One must believe in him/her self. Believing is a strong power that can make you do everything. One must never be shy. If you are blessed with a talent, it is just needed to be explored. One must have a courageous heart and shine everywhere.

One must be capable to do everything and have the guts to bright in others territory too. His ownership must be shown into next territory. These qualities will make a man perfect.

At last, we would like to conclude that people should try more and more to interact instead of being aloof. One must have good behaviour and must be filled with good qualities that will help a human being to achieve more in life.

Our belief taking Learning Forward


The Professional Learning Program (PLP) aligns with the mission of Learning Forward, the world's largest body of individual educators, with a vision of excellent teaching and learning every day. The Learning Forward India Academy is working to build the capacity of leaders to establish and sustain highly effective professional learning. Professional learning means a comprehensive, sustained and intensive approach to improving teachers’ and principals’ effectiveness in raising student achievement.

Our belief is:
The purpose of professional learning is to ensure a comprehensive, sustained, and intensive approach to improving teachers’ and principals’ effectiveness in raising student achievement.

  • Professional learning strives to go beyond standardised testing to promote authentic learning experiences and the application of knowledge and skills. 
  • Professional learning is aligned with rigorous student academic achievement standards, as well as related affiliation standards of state and central boards and guidelines for school improvement goals. 
  • Professional learning regularly assesses the effectiveness of achieving identified learning goals, improving teaching, assisting all students in meeting challenging academic achievement standards and is used to inform ongoing improvements in teaching and student learning. 
  • The success of the students is affected by sustained professional learning conducted among educators at the school and facilitated by well-prepared school principals and/or school-based professional learning trainers, coaches, mentors, master teachers, or other teacher leaders. 
  • Professional learning is a continuous cycle of improvement, which evaluates the student, teacher, and school learning needs through a thorough review of data on teacher and student performance. 
  • Effective professional learning honours differences in student and adult learners by using various approaches to learning and assessment.  
  • Educators have the right to expect excellence in their professional learning and have the power to achieve it. All educators share the responsibility for their own individual growth as well as that of their organisations.
  • Professional learning is most effective when supported by an organisational culture that fosters learning for all. Professional learning must be embedded in the organisational structure for systemic change and may be supported by external assistance. 
  • Collaboration and fostering collective responsibility for improved student performance within the school community is essential for school improvement and student success.
  • All professional learning should be of high quality and aligned with the best standards for professional learning. 
The term professional learning means a comprehensive, sustained and intensive approach to improving teachers’ and principals’ effectiveness in raising student achievement. School improvement will happen only when the School Board and the Management support the principal in creating an environment that nurtures excellence, trust, risk-taking and creativity.
