Different events related to skill development were organized to equip students with skills to achieve personal success and to make a sustainable world for all.
A Panel discussion was conducted on “Importance of Digital Resources in Education.”
They concluded that digital technology has made learning more digestible and provided learners with a plethora of opportunities to learn. These panelists along with other students embarked on a journey to explore the vast realm of digital resources. They examined the transformative potential of technology and how it may improve the educational process for learners of all ages. They advised all to adapt to the fast-changing technological environment.
Next event was a Power Point presentation on local skills and handicraft industry of Jaipur. Through the PPT students shed light on several indigenous crafts of Jaipur. Their insightful presentation helped students gain valuable knowledge about crafts like Lac Bangles, Blue pottery, stone jewellery, puppetry, block printing, thewa art etc. and their market scope. Over the past 30 years, the number of Indian artisans have decreased by 30 percent and the vast majority of artisans operate in informal work settings. To keep the traditional craft alive and to give students an all-around understanding of the same PPT presentation was followed by a review writing activity focusing on the problems being faced by the small scale handicraft industry and giving some suggestions for improvement.
