In such a rapidly evolving landscape, education is the key to survive and today, we discuss what skills do actually students must also build on parallel to their learning period.

Consolidating below the 7 most and must-have skills to impart in Student’s Education for building a stronger future:

Moral Living Cognizance

“Fill the brain with high thoughts, highest ideals,
place them day and night before you,
and out of that will come Great work”
-  Swami Vivekananda

Apart from Education, Students of today and future should adhere to moral policies to understand and live a meaningful life in essence. The sole purpose of education is to influence students how to think, act and connect between characters and as well approach the life positively. Hence, schools must term the social glue in education that defines how individuals should live together more in real world than in the virtual world.


Fitness Physically and Mentally

As opposed to moral education, physical education becomes important for a student well-being. Mental well-being is again a credible factor to consider in children education. Program and activities are crucial to shape minds of students to think broad and explore more which eventually improve student’s performance. Educators should put in conscious efforts to eliminate habits of laziness and sloppiness and help acquire habits of self-control and diligence amongst students physically and mentally.


Critical Thinking & Logical Skills

The market is global with eCommerce meaning the competition is global. Students must be aware of this competitive world and should develop their intelligence to be able to think rapid and smart to solve the problems in their career.

Effective communication is highly mandatory to deliver your points and win the situation. Unless or until this skill is developed, students run into extreme struggle to find their position in their career. To do this, students must be very well aware of its importance right at their schooling and the school must take all steps to educate the consequence in case of poor communication with facts and figures to stress its urging importance. From drafting an email to sharing a comment on social network, schools can teach their students to understand the etiquette of communication on all platform which will greatly help in their career and also behave well in the society.


Digital Learning Talent

The information uploaded to web is exponential which may not be covered to read even in a life time. Hence, it becomes critical to increase the interest in finding and knowing information and as well understand the difference of usual and trivial information on web. Making the most of internet in terms of downloading reference materials, finding answers of questions, discussing issues on a common platform can nurture brain with wealth of information to store for future reference. Plenty of website are available online to make learning easier and interesting which are credible for student’s education.

Naturally, there must be an Appetite to Learn for students of tomorrow.

More than a leader, it is important to acquire leadership quality for a student to face challenges in search of opportunities and go through tough times at life.



Team Work

Team work involves collaboration and serve as an empowerment to unite and strengthen each other capacity in a group.  Students learn how to cooperate and be loyal to the team while involving in team building activities. Apart from developing leadership quality, being a good team player adds value to their profession.

Let’s break the traditional pattern of studies and teach what is really required. A drastic transformation is expected to integrate real-world context in education.

Robotic Technology - How it benefits young minds

It is rather a great revolution happening in the Robotic Technology. We do come across quite often some kind of Robots existing around us. It may sound to be trendy but one need to realize a lot more happenings in the technological advancement. Robotic Technology is now seen as business trends and a lot of top companies has started acquiring it. Quite commonly experienced in the artificial intelligence the so-called Robotic tasks are the static jobs or the repetitive work. This means something like the ATM which dispenses cash, daily cleaning activities like floor maintenance, lawn maintenance, auto door openings and Biometric sensors. This proves to stand as an example that Robots have already come into existence and has become vital for our daily life.

Reading this should trigger and boost the young minds to start exploring and managing to explore opportunities for the future. The reality to get surrounded by Robots is sooner to come. It seems to be beyond imagination as you would have read or noticed companies anticipating business trends and soon it would reach the consumer market as well. The days meant with robots will be like it would feed your pet or answer the door bell in your absence. Technology always surprises you with new innovations.

We would now realize the gaining momentum in the Robotic Technology. It is a highly creative and challenging technology which requires much cross-disciplinary and multiple talent. With a great boom of passion, interest and creativity one can excel in Robotics. It is also a noted subject for the school students in the current trend of education. Students gain a comprehensive and profound knowledge in computer programming, engineering concepts, problem solving, team work which keeps the curiousness triggered to make endless exploration. This ultimately subjects in increase their talents to a greater extend.

Let us get back to the other phenomenon of Robotics, Say for example after the smartphone innovation the need for various gadgets like watch, camera, brief case of important papers and references has been vanished. Now realize that the cost of camera is very meagre and other components like the sensors, display, processors has also been curtailed in price to play with. So if you could gain the components easily students can easily play around with the Robotic concepts.

A brief on Robotic Educations and its importance:

Technology is popular with the NEW BUZZWORD of Robots and beyond the age limits students can be engaged in learning the robot technology which helps them to stimulate various skills with the practical and hands-on training.

  • Understand the engineering concepts
  • Gain practical and hands-on experience
  • Develops creativity
  • Improves analytical and logical skills
  • Acquire team co-ordination
  • Excel in computer programming

When the schools provide such education to the budding students, they are facilitating for the overall development of the student. Such curriculum will make the young minds innovative while they learn to design, develop and experiment. To summarize they are developing the creativity, computation skills, thinking skills, problem solving skills and team building skills in the young minds. When they still keep it primary with more opportunities they would soon see the students manage the Robotic projects independently and seamlessly benefit in STEM Concepts. (i.e.) STEM- Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Simple! Robotics is nothing but our future and has to be learned with motivation. It is exciting and cool to start off. You would notice a lot of brands offering Robot kits to trigger the interest of trialling and experimenting. Schools are expected to recognize the interest of the children at an early stage so as to catch them young as an ASPIRING ROBOTIC ENGINEERS.
