  2. 2. Quality Education as Medium of Global Influence USA & some of its institutions have global leadership today mainly due to knowledge creation & the knowledge dependence of others on them Every nation has a large influential section educated in USA; so, they think soft on US system & models So, if India can create an influential section of intellect in every counting nation of the world, India’s global intellectual leadership will be a natural outcome There are two key routes of exercising influence on other nations: economics as China does on USA, & knowledge as USA does on the rest of the world Quality education is a powerful tool of influence on the world if the two aspects of knowledge is combined: Creation of fundamental knowledge through research & spread of knowledge through global penetration November 20, 2013 digitalLearning Higher Education Knowledge Exchange Goa November 15, 2013 2

  10. 10. Technology Impact is More Pervasive Technology companies sell their wares; institutions buy them for competitive edge; others follow Technology companies come back & say here is a new version/product, more effective/far better etc The one-upmanship game continues & higher education gets evolved again & again!

  13. 13. Technology Cannot Teach Everything In a physical book we read in sequence to know what we want Today digital search gives students precisely a specific point; there is little link to what happened before & what will happen next This gives a wholesome picture + a little more than what we looked for This rendered learning discontinuous/truncated To overcome any skill gap arising from such truncated learning, further skill enhancement courses may be required. Effectively, it is going back to a traditional type detailed learning November 20, 2013 digitalLearning Higher Education Knowledge Exchange Goa November 15, 2013 13

  17. 17. Higher Education & India’s Progress Caste-ism Corruption India’s Progress Inequality Higher education accentuates the feeling of self-dignity, desire for fairness, & need for material fulfillment, & it progressively diminishes the affinity to social rigidities, indifference to economic deprivation, & allegiance to social groupings. Higher education, in addition, enhances appreciation of efficiency & provides strategic orientation in problem solving. Hence, higher education is key to India’s rapid progress.
