Asia’s first Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) innovated an educational model for many generations to follow and live by. Growing up with his thirteen brothers and sisters who were mathematicians, journalists, novelists, musicians, artists, young Rabindranath was gifted with a dynamic open model of learning that he replicated in his school at Santiniketan. He supported the “freedom of education” and believed in creating one such ecosystem that encouraged and nurtured the teaching model that not only fosters inclusive education based on research and creativity of students, but also promotes a rich environment of collaborative spirit.  tweet

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”, said the great teacher Albert Einstein, whose beliefs reverberated with those of Rabindranath Tagore with the same frequency that nurtures a dynamic and creative model of education. Einstein, in one of his last public appearances, said “It was my teacher, who showed me the way to the higher mathematical science, thought and research. He is called ‘Konstantinos Karatheodoris, he was Greek, and we owe everything to him”.  Such is the light of a worthy teacher. The teacher who moulds a mind like that of Einstein, who devoted his entire life as a Physicist, and is known to have dwelt in the depths of independent research and creative thinking. tweet

Aristotle was a Greek Philosopher and scientist, and he was a pupil of Plato. Aristotle also got an opportunity to teach Alexander the Great, which led him to much abundance that gave form to the establishment of a library in Lyceum which aided in the production of many of his hundreds of books. Works of Aristotle contain the earliest known formal study of Logic, which was incorporated in the late 19th century into modern formal Logic. Also, Aristotle got to teach ‘Socrates’, about whom, we’d read about, next. tweet

Socrates is known to be the classical Greek philosopher, and as a teacher, encouraged critical thinking and open discussions in order to “illuminate” ideas. Aristotle was a teacher of Socrates, and credited Socrates with the discovery of the method of definition and induction, which Aristotle regarded as the essence of the ‘scientific method’. Such was an era of teachers, that revolutionized the education model in a way that makes students grasp difficult concepts with scientific understanding that aids clarity and further research. tweet
