the name Gandhi conjure up for generation Next?
recollection from faded history books...or perhaps the face on the greenbacks
that provides us with spending power...or even India's happy relatives from a
certain central European nation?
have voted for one of these before I saw the light at the Eternal Gandhi
multi-media exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA). It is a
uniquely innovative attempt and "first of its kind" digital take on
the Mahatma's life and work. Cutting edge technological magic has been used to
weave a vivid tapestry in which you are not a distant observer but are part of
the living fabric design.
moment you step into the exposition hall, you are immersed into a fascinating
dialogue on the life and times of the Mahatma. That's all very well you may
say. How is all this relevant to me as a part of TIS? What will I gain from a
visit to this technological marvel? Here is what you will gain:
- A starting point for innovative presentation of well-known content (Compare a films division documentary with the Eternal Gandhi)
- A peep into the future of learning technology
- An understanding of flow and design that is learner-driven rather than instructor-driven
- The "WOW" factor - Ideas that can be easily interwoven into TIS' eLearning projects
I am sure
you will come up with thousands of other ideas. Go on! Make your day!! Grab a
few friends and visit the Eternal Gandhi.
