Kindle For Education for India – Solved Problem Statement
In India, we are having more of a traditional way of learning/studying. In Indian education system a regular student is required to carry a load of books to the school/college. A student is expected to be more focused on the theoretical knowledge than the practical knowledge. So a student is not required to have the latest subject knowledge instead a teacher is happy if the student knows what is written in the book. Although, that book has been printed 5 years back and it contains the information which is updated till 10 years back. For example, students were studying that there are 9 planets in our solar system even after the couple of years when count has been reduced to 8. So there is information gap due to the time lag in the updating and printing of the updated physical texts. Kindle can become the next mile in bridging these information gaps and also it can provide some additional benefits to the students for e.g. interactive learning, latest research data etc. Market Research:
Now a days, education perspective in India is changing people are shifting towards more interactive and innovative ways of learning. So there is a market for the use of digital readers in Indian education. For identifying the opportunities for Kindle in the Indian education, we will have to do a market survey to identify the size of the potential market. Indian education system is more of the theoretical learning based rather practical learning based as in Western. Identifying the values should be the top priority that can be offered by Kindle to the Indian students. Segmentation and Size of Opportunity:
Major market segmentation will be urban, semi-urban and rural. It can be further segmented into the primary education, secondary education, higher education and professional education segments. Our initial potential target groups can be students in urban area, in secondary education and then in higher education. After...

Education is commonly divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, secondary school and then college, university or apprenticeship.

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.
Science and Play

Creating Qualification, But No Quality
Ravali Rupaa Amba
India fascinates people world over with its diversity and with the extreme contrasts in lives of people. Indian education scenario which also paints the same contrasted picture has gained world recognition. Many foreign nationals are considering India for higher education. Although illiteracy is a haunting problem inIndia the vast talent pool in the country never ceases to amaze people. To reach this position from the days of gurukul system - which although was a very efficient way of imparting knowledge, did great wrong to the oppressed classes - was no piece of cake.
