Educhat: Role of Technology in a Student’s Career Development
As schools in India operate with unskilled teachers who use archaic curricula and obsolete teaching techniques, most students fail to survive in the modern-day world.

Sunday is usually a hustle-and-bustle day in India’s capital New Delhi, as people tend to socialize after completing their household chores on the weekly holiday.
This Sunday, however, brought an uneasy calm for most locals as they are terrified with the rapid spread of Dengue epidemic in the entire city.
Nevertheless, the Dengue menace couldn’t dampen the spirits of RMN Foundation school students who organized their weekly Educhat program that allows them to discuss burning topics of contemporary relevance in their education.
This week, the Educhat discussion was about the “Role of Technology in a Student’s Career Development.”
The program was anchored by RMN Foundation school student Saraswati while other students – Pooja, Faizan, and Shadmanik – participated as guests.
It was concluded in the discussion that technology / computer education is an imperative in a student’s career development because today we are living in a digitally connected world.
However, it was observed that schools in India are ignoring this important subject because they are ill-equipped to impart modern computer education and teachers are not qualified to teach technology.

RMN Foundation school kids are taught to express their views through various communicative ways such as writing, drawings, and debating.
RMN Foundation has introduced the Educhat form of discussion to empower its students to think, analyze, and express their views on crucial topics that impact their education.
Schools in India
As schools in India operate with unskilled teachers who use archaic curricula and obsolete teaching techniques, most students fail to survive in the modern-day world when they move further in their careers.

As a result, Indian students with degrees and diplomas are not employable in any modern profession. Worse, they are not even trainable for a professional job because their knowledge level is abysmally bad.
To overcome this educational predicament, RMN Foundation has developed its own Constructive Education Framework to connect education with employability.
This is an alternative education option for students who want to get the right professional job and progress in the knowledge-driven world.
Free Modern Education
RMN Foundation schools are now providing free education to the children of economically weaker sections of the society in New Delhi.
The Foundation plans to open thousands of such schools where hundreds of thousands of students could get free modern education.
Moreover, RMN Foundation is working actively to open residential schools for poor and orphaned children where they could get the best education for their career and personality development to progress in today’s highly competitive world.
RMN Foundation aims to open at least 1,000 residential schools for over 100,000 students by the year 2020. Most of these schools will be set up in India and a few of them will be based in other poor nations of the world.
Formed in May 2015, RMN Foundation is the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of the Raman Media Network (RMN) Company, which is working in diversified content creation, management, and distribution businesses on a global scale.
