Educational Technology Summit 2017 - “Design, Technology and Change” (Awarded Most Innovative Project)


A distinctive and first-of-its-kind endeavor in the field of Educational Technology for school leaders and eminent educationists, the aim of this annual event is to initiate and continue a dialogue on what Digital Leadership is; and what it should look like in schools. The fourth edition of the Summit, titled ‘Design, Technology and Change’ on the theme ‘Design Thinking’ took place on 16th December at WWF- India in New Delhi. The focus was to give students an understanding of the design cycle, through a practical programme. The event witnessed wide scale participation from over 150 delegates from across the nation. 13 schools presented out-of-box innovative Design-Thinking projects and were peer-evaluated based on the rubrics provided to them. The students were required to judge the projects based on the design thinking elements (empathy, idea, prototype, story-telling, teamwork, etc.), innovations, impact/potential and creativity.

While the Summit sponsors- WWF-India, Radius (authorized partners for Apple Education) and Mindbox conducted engaging workshops with the students, representative from Google Education Group-India, Ms. Gurpreet Kaur conducted an informative workshop with school leaders and teachers encouraging usage of technology, specifically Google drive, Google forms, Google sheets, etc. in daily classrooms. Mike Knowles, a renowned professor of Design, undertook a design-thinking workshop with school heads, principals, directors, school owners and teachers. He emphasized the need for empathy, creativity and rationale as the pre-requisites for effective design-thinking.

We had two representatives from our school- Yolü Nuvocho (class- XI) and Kevizasi Vupru (class-X). The students were accompanied by Ms. Beni Seb and Ms. Kidisungla Changkiri. The title of our project ‘Agent of Change’ emphasized on using music as a tool to bring change in the society. The students involved in introducing musical instruments to two students from the Government Higher Secondary School, Chumukidema. The classes were held twice a week and were taught the basics of guitar and keyboard. The project included organizing exchange programs with an aim in educating the importance of music to the school and how music can be used as a medium to communicate and express oneself. The students also initiated to develop a cost efficient device-a portable amplifier, made out of batteries. The device can be used as an alternate source for sound output and can be connected to a speaker, microphone and musical instruments. Hollotoli School was awarded the most innovative project for the 2017 Summit.

The Summit offered the students a great opportunity to share their innovative ideas and interact with schools from all over the country.
