ECA's Teacher’s Tinkering Fest on Nov 9th, 10th


PUNE: India’s first Teacher’s Tinkering Fest – a hands-on, one and a half-day event, where teachers will participate in special workshops that empower them with skills in experiential learning will be held on Nov 9th and 10th.  This will coincide with the World Science Day and will be held at the Elpro International School at Chinchwad.

Speaking of this rare opportunity, Dr. Swati Popat Vats, President, Early Childhood Association of India said, “We fully recognize the pivotal role played by our teachers, especially in early childhood and are honored and excited to present them with this special conference where experts will conduct activity-based sessions to teach academic concepts using engaging methodologies like story-telling, art and outdoor activities.”

“It is our endeavor to encourage teachers to become “Makers” and “Doers” rather than just “Listeners” in a plain conference.” she further added. The event is expected to attract about 250 participants, both parents and teachers from across Pune and the surrounding cities and will engage them in various expert-led sessions where all materials and resources will be provided. 

The experts are leaders from the field of education and are trained in the art of knowledge transfer to young children. Experiential Learning is scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ways of learning where students learn by doing. Each session will last about 90 minutes and teachers will take part in all five sessions in the Conference and will receive certificates.

Lucky Surana, Territory Head, ECA, PCMC Chapter said, “The PCMC Chapter fully aligns with the mission of the ECA and we strive to organize events that further our noble cause.  It is meaningful that we are hosting this Teacher’s Tinkering Fest in Pune which is home to thousands of teachers considering that Pune is the education capital of our country. This Conference truly celebrates the learning process by demonstrating that experiential learning is scientific, fun, effective and most importantly easy.” 

The Early Childhood Association of India has 43 territories pan India and is set up with the vision that all the preschools, balwadis, N.G.O's, children's activity classes, parents, student teachers, media houses, companies that deal with children's products, in short everyone connected to young children can all come together to advocate, discuss, learn and share, connect and bring about a change in the quality of care development and learning in early childhood in India.
