The event #ParentsINK was organized by India’s leading early learning ed-tech platform Creative Galileo in association with INKtalks.
There was a buzz in the air as almost 70 eager parents arrived at the location for an evening of ideas, inspiration, and discussion centred around Embracing Individuality, Empowering Parents, and Celebrating Children. In collaboration with INKtalks, India’s top early learning ed-tech platform Creative Galileo produced the event #ParentsINK. 11 speakers from different industries participated in the #ParentsINK to discuss parenting and how to be better guardians of the next generation.
The speakers included Prerna Jhunjhunwala (Founder, Creative Galileo), Soha Ali Khan (Actor), Babita Phogat (Indian Wrestler), Lakshmi Pratury (Founder, INK Talks), Shukla Bose (Founder and CEO of the Parikrma Humanity Foundation), Sampat Raj (Actor), Vani Kola (Entrepreneur), Natasha Bagaria (Entrepreneur), Anuja Chauhan (Indian Author and Screenwriter), Anju Bobby George (Athlete), and Christian Ehl (Entrepreneur).
The speakers discussed embracing digital learning, creating solid foundations for children’s futures, and building parent-child bonds that last a lifetime. They also provided intriguing perspectives on parenting. Through a variety of parenting experiences, examples of creativity, and most importantly, a commitment to encouraging children’s healthy social, emotional, and behavioural development, the panel left the audience feeling incredibly encouraged. The event includes panel discussions as well as speeches given by speakers.
The founder of Creative Galileo, Prerna Jhunjhunwala, said, “For the future readiness of children, I believe there is a need to bridge the learning gap today through digital means. In our first chapter, we invited terrific speakers who could share insights on Parenting and child education through their personal experiences. #ParentsINK platform has helped us gain some interesting perspectives and will help build this community work towards celebrating and providing educational equity.
In many aspects, education will be genuinely gamified in the future. Gamification will be a fundamental core platform that will have an impact on many other sectors, including loneliness and support systems. Vani Kola-Entrepreneur continued, “I think that technology is moving in a direction that will really democratise the knowledge economy.
Leading actor Soha Ali Khan remarked, “We’re going to have to embrace this digital education and the good things about it,” during a speech at the event. I believe it would be impossible and irresponsible of us not to include digital education in our daily lives, but it must be done carefully. Yes, I am pleased to see how the pandemic has advanced digital learning over the years, but there must be limits and one must be aware of these things.
Creative Galileo hopes to promote discussions on creating a better future for children with the hashtag #ParentsINK.
