How to avoid getting sick in India

Jenny Connected

In today’s live ChangeMooc session with Antonio Vantaggiato [link] (which I will come to again in another post), I was sorry to hear that Stephen Downes, George Siemens and Dave Cormier all suffered from ‘Delhi Belly’ as a result of their trip to India. Avoiding getting sick in India. These strategies have worked for me over many visits to India. And I should end by saying that I absolutely love India. Tagged: #change11 , changemooc11 , India.

Revisiting Calcutta (now Kolkata) after 65 years

Jenny Connected

India was no longer a comfortable place for the British – at least, in hindsight, I think that was what he thought. Leaving India was no easy decision. I do not remember a lot about my early childhood in India. Many of India’s city names that I grew up with have been changed).

Practical example: UNDP in India

Joitske Hulsebosch

Steve Glovinsky from UNDP reported in com-prac about the communities of practice for development practitioners in India. The communities are across organisations. Even though he anticipated cultural resistance this did not occur. The UN platform lends the site impartiality and network moderators who are respected in their own fields and provide lots of encouragement. Some explicit design parameters have been put in place like the absence of titles in the names.

The Role of the Service Sector in the Indian Economy

Jenny Connected

On a recent trip – 2-9 th January 2012 – to Chennai (formerly Madras) in India, I attended part of a small conference, which focussed on the role of the services sector on the growth of the Indian economy. This conference was organised by Lancaster University’s India Centre. The current situation in India is that the growth rate of services has overtaken both agriculture and industry and is now more than 50% of GDP. India therefore has a services-oriented economy.

A-Z of my year – 2018

India. I first wrote a post like this in 2016. I didn’t write one last year. Here is one for this year. It has seemed more difficult this year than in 2016, but perhaps that’s just my memory, or perhaps it’s because I am in Kerala, away from home and access to some of my resources.

Looks like Vodafone in India is working to show the greater reach of BlackBerry outside of the office. Obviously this has been a theme from Research In Motion for quite a few years, but very interesting to see the approaches being taken around the world.

What are your expectations? Were they met?

The larger roads in northern India have lane markings. Everyone talks about the traffic in India yet it’s not possible to really know what it’s like without actually being in it. They appear to be indicative, as is the direction of traffic.

Title = "for India's Rupee, a New Identity," by Rama Lakshmi, Wash Post, May 16, 2009. Sharpen your pixels, designers. There's a contest to come up with a symbol for the Indian Rupee like $ or € or £ or ¥, all of which amazingly are on my iPhone keyboard. Having said that, I have to also say that I have no idea how to find the link to the Washington Post article I'm reading at the moment using only my iPhone.

The place of ‘the teacher’ in relation to open content

Jenny Connected

It was the startling fact that India (where more than half the population is under the age of 20) needs 37000 new universities within the next 10 years (as of today, 4 new universities a week) if it is going to meet the education demands of it’s growing population. Just how will ‘teaching’ be scaled up to meet the needs of tomorrow’s learners in India, China and the world? Change Mooc, Week 18: Richard DeMillo, Ashwin Ram, Preetha Ram, and Hua Ali.
