This talk was organised by the Alumni Association of PCER Chembur as a part of The Learning Q-est Series as a part of the Alumni Returns programme.
Ms. Sheeba spoke about the importance of teaching children to think and how teachers need to provide them with the tools for thinking. Like any other skill, these need to be taught and practiced regularly. She spoke at length about some of the tools and gave many examples as to how these can be used in the classrooms. The session ended with Ms. Sheeba answering various questions from the participants.
