    O.Nabakishore Singh (Ex-Commissioner) Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti, New Delhi

          Raghavendra Rao is an independent education consultant and a practicing classroom teacher with 15 years experience. In recent years he has won numerous awards for his work with emerging technologies in education, including the Microsoft Worldwide Innovative Teacher of the Year and National ICT Award. His presentations on 21st Century learning, educational change, and transformative use of ICT have made Raghavendra a highly sought-after conference presenter and facilitator of professional learning workshops in schools and tertiary institutions. His mantra is "You don't need to be very good with technology to do very good things with technology". Raghu's message is that in the second decade, teachers no longer need to be "tech-savvy" to transform their classrooms into thriving, connected, learning communities. Rather they need a willingness to question their 20th Century paradigms and rethink their roles as educators in a world where information is available on-demand and communication is instantaneous.

          As a result of your conference presentation, we now have a Podcasting Program with students creating their own Podcasts. Teachers are also becoming more aware of this exciting tool and I am heading off to see our Biology Teacher with your Podcasts ready for him! Apart from Podcasting, I am very grateful to you for mentioning MS SharePoint. Your presentation "planted the seed" and this year we have finally introduced the Scholaris Learning Gateway which runs on SharePoint. I can't help but think that if I hadn't have been fortunate enough to participate in your Knowledge Bank presentation, our school would not be involved in these two significant projects. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

          I think the sky's the limit with Virtual Classroom. You are beginning to draw students from the school environment to the virtual world, and you are also attracting the best facilitators from wherever they are located throughout world.

          Hi Raghavendra Rao, my thanks for your wonderful presentation...this week. It has been great to hear the buzz from those in the office who attended your session yesterday. You have certainly caused lots of conversions around the nature of schools in the future!!!

Because of his dedication he has brought a desirable change in teaching learning of biology through the integration of technology. His passion for the subject reflects in his way of creating useful content for students using ICT. He has developed interesting e modules for learning difficult and boring lessons in biology.
