Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
How do you imagine the school of the future?
When this question was asked in few classes, their imaginations were unimaginable.It is a surprising thing to know that these children have the knowledge of latest technologies to a large extent and they know how to connect their knowledge with future.
These are some of their ideas about future schools:
1.There won't be any school building
2. The term 'teacher' will not exist
3.It will be a life long learning where we can choose our own subjects
4. children will be very intelligent but will not be able to think even a simple answers like what is 7+7 .They depend on machines to get the answer.
5.No names will be there.Teachers will be replaced by robots and robots recognize every one by numbers.So every student will have some identity number.
6. Some duplicate children in the form of robots will be created and there will be a lot of confusions between the real & the machine world.
7.Laser technology will be wide spread.
8.The differences in color, religion, culture etc. will be minimized and there will be a common "Machine" culture.
So on and so forth.
In spite of such a vast imagination children felt sad when they start thinking that no system from today's school will exist in future schools. They felt sad for the future generations that how it will be possible to sit at home all the time if there is no school? How it would be if you are called with a number?
If so much disciplined, mechanical life starts, how the future children will do mischief? and many more such type of worries!!
Finally a group of six students got selected whose imagination was excellent and were asked to take up the job,connecting today's real school & tomorrow's Imaginary schools with their imagination.
The site is created with the team's own paintings their own version of tomorrow's education and think quest tools.
Project has helped to bring out the imagination of kids to their best.Some of the photographs of school students are taken in school itself.
