Digital Learning
From the Expert

The rapid strides in innovation and more personalized, customized learning which helps an individual cope with his learning needs as opposed to a generic learning formula is due to technology and the role it has played over the years. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is therefore such a wonderful enabler to bring in not only cost-effective learning solutions but also efficiency in time management and more importantly the access to information that was previously not possible. Learning therefore in the digital age can be a huge advantage if treated with maturity and the right dosage.

The virtual lifestyle has spared none and crippled all! While it has made life simpler for most of us, there is also an increasing rate of side effects that they bring along with them. And one such harsh truth is that of going through virtual peer pressure. While peer pressure among the youth and specifically the teenage children, in the physical surroundings is always a cause of concern, parents have another reason to worry with the virtual peer pressure building around their kids.

Everyday Sexism

Indians are raised with some ideas ingrained in them, which although seem very trivial, the given free-rein to some cancerous ideologies, poses very much as a catalyst in moulding the sexist psyche. In fact, sexism is so internalised and ubiquitous that we mostly overlook it or give in to it. Everyday sexism begins from classroom seating arrangements to billboards and TV ads. We’re inherently a society that is taught not to question anything, from traditions and practices to career choices. And that has made it enormously hard for us to question the existing patriarchal norms. Sexism is so deeply associated with so many spheres of our lives and the society that most of the sexist notions go, if not unnoticed, ignored.
