Staying Safe in the Virtual World

Our smartphones are the entry point to a virtual world that helps us connect with anyone, anytime anywhere, and access any information. It is important to understand that just like we exercise caution to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe in the real world, we need to be vigilant in the virtual world too. Hence, it is extremely important that first we have an understanding of the pros and cons of being a netizen (citizen of the virtual world i.e. Internet).

This workshop has been specially designed keeping in mind the present scenario where adults and children alike cherish their citizenship in the virtual world and are most of the times caught unaware of the cyber security threats that lurk disguised in the form of friendly apps or identities.

Target Audience : Parents, educators and learning enthusiasts (teenagers, young adults, anyone interested)

Nurturing Thinking in Children

With so much to watch and hear, we have become mere consumers of information. Even our children do not have time for themselves. They are always surrounded by so much that they mostly put on their thinking caps when they are asked to answer questions. It is also observed that they strive to come up with answers that we adults want to, or expect to hear.

Keeping with its motto Practicing Perfection Abhyast brings to you a workshop that will help parents and educators understand the brain development in children and help children think critically and creatively while distinguishing between them.
