Our partner for study material, IYCWorld- founded in 2001, pioneered technology-led 'Whole School Transformation'(WST) in 2003. The genesis of WST is the acknowledgement that education - the most knowledge intensive of all human endeavours - will witness the most disruptive change due to the Knowledge Infrastructure - the Internet. IYCWorld services help schools re-engineer their processes and resources in the context of the contemporary societal needs, imperatives, trends etc. In other words, IYC is a world-leading educational technology organization, galvanising the transition of the current (industrial society) schools to knowledge society schools.
IYCWorld has a vision of Internet-based education as the driver of Social Infrastructure Transformation across the globe. The current schooling system will evolve into knowledge society schools as places of exchange and collaboration between students.
In the Knowledge Society, there won't be any Under-developed country, developing country or developed country. There will just be High Imagination Economies and Low Imagination Economies. Everything will be a commodity except the power to imagine.
- Thomas Freidman, Pan-IIT Conclave, Oct 2010.
The need of parents to create a smart home, to harness the power of imagination in their child, is pressing. The best - and infact the only way - is to reduce the Curricular academic transaction to a few hours a day and set the child free to IMAGINE!
