Like the philosopher stone, the knowledge was; the knowledge is; and the knowledge will be the only instrument to transform the mankind and lead the humanity onto the illustrious path of righteousness, justice and peace. Though, the alchemy of propagating and transmitting knowledge ‘from Givers to Receivers’ changes on altar of time leaving precedents reflecting on the vast mirage of ages. Stakeholders of academia and industry must synthesize ‘the ways of transmission’ to cater to the present day scenario so as to enable the learners to meet out demands of the progressive and emerging scenario of Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization [LPG]. Ear-bursting alarm of global industries can be heard loud and clear i.e. Perform or Perish. In such situation the synergy of academic process specifically in our field has to imbibe and amalgamate traditional and modern methods seamlessly otherwise sticking to the age old concepts will eventually wipe out the existence of we teachers by challenging his identity and questioning his relevance. This presentation aims to provoke all academic stakeholders to rethink, rebuild and reincarnate their presence in academia so as to help shape the leaders of tomorrow.


Archimedes incidentally noticed overflowing of water from the bath tub while bathing and the ‘Principle of Buoyancy’ was revealed to his intellect. He applied the same to find out purity of gold in the king’s crown and thus he could save his life. Later the same theory ‘repurposed’ to develop a ship which eventually changed the history of humankind through navigation and in turn the whole world was discovered. Today every industry is doing the same. I mean "repurposing". All modern systems have a common reliance on digital systems and in particular the internet will continue to drive industrial convergence for many years to come. Indeed, the activities of most industries, at least in part, involve the manipulation and exchange of digital information. Digital technology and its application for teaching practice means the ability of both students and teachers to use every digital artefacts as integral part of their pedagogical content knowledge. Student-teachers need to be aware of what implications this has for ‘teaching-learning’ strategies and the building aspects in lesson presentation. A new approach to teaching practice, calibrated for the twenty first century, requires teachers to be willing to assist the learners in this regard. We have experienced on many occasions, teachers often expressed their lack of confidence in adapting digital technology skills and this can implicitly affect their attitudes towards the use of digital technology in their teaching-learning process. This presentation shall discuss the effect of new industrial convergence and its impact on modern sciences and engineering. The participant shall get an idea on how the world is changing and how it is going to re shape in the next two decades.

Key Thrust Areas

1. Innovation and Digital Disruption.
2. New Industrial Convergence.
3. Fourth Industrial Revolution.
4. Prerequisites to groom gen-z citizens

Patrik Ervells latest collection is ironically titled “Software”ADIDAS ORIGINALS TUBULAR SHADOW. In the notes from the presentation, Ervell says he was interested in developing tension between nostalgia and sci-fi,NIKE ZOOM WINFLO 3 and even included 90s cyberpunk amongst his influences. Ervell developed this point of view by creating an imaginary software company called Idegen software systems. He then re-appropriated the company’AIR JORDAN XXXI MENs logo in several of the collection’s garments. Elsewhere,MBT TARIKI MEN mohair coats with oversized lapels made an appearance alongside mock neck tees,NIKE AIR JORDAN RETRO 5 police-inspired ribbed sweaters,MBT FORA GTX WOMEN flight bombers, and polyurethane leather coats. The setting was also suitably dystopian, and the resulting ambiance was something akin to if the creators of Deutschland 83 and Hackers met up and decided to create a collection… We mean that as a compliment.Yesterday afternoon,JORDAN CP3 IX MEN artist JR spent the day working on his latest collaborative piece with Daniel Arsham in Greenpoint,NIKE AIR MAX 90 Brooklyn,MBT KIMONDO GTX MEN NYC. Connecting the lines between art, architecture, dance and theater, Daniel Arsham has been known to subvert existing architectural structures in unconventional,NIKE CLASSIC CORTEZ NYLON playful ways; confusing and confounding the expectations of space and form.
