K-Konnect was our 2nd major workshop in Kashmir after the first one done in September, 2012. Looking at the response we got for the first one, we were really really excited to organize K-Konnect workshop for Kindergarten teachers, principals and owners of the schools of Kashmir Valley. The scale was huge as more than 250 teachers from 120+ schools were invited for this workshop at Media House Auditorium, EMMRC, University of Kashmir.


The response was overwhelming with more than 200 educators from 100+ schools attending the workshop. The workshop started with a welcome message from Mausam Arora, Director-Ashlar Education Consultants Pvt. Ltd. Who in his message welcomed all the esteemed guests and shared his company’s vision of making learning fun for the kids. The chief guest, Dr. Shahid Rasool, Director EMMRC, university of Kashmir then gave a beginning speech and shared his expectation from the workshop.


The workshop focused on the New age pedagogy for the new age kindergarten educator and was conducted by immensely gifted & multi-talented Meetakshi Maheshwari, who is by profession a “Law of Attraction” trainer and a creation & ideation expert with Ashlar Kidz. It talked about the changing times and how the new age education has gone way beyond literacy. The new era of education – the era of connected classrooms. A system where everyone wins; educators, parents and most significantly the children. Our children are not just children. They are our future scientists, innovators, designers, musicians, leaders, decision makers…


Workshop received a tremendous response from all the educators who attended. Prominent educators like Prof. C.L. Vishen, Chairman, Jammu Kashmir Private School Association Coordination Committee and Mr. M.Y. Manzar, Chairman, Kashmir Private Schools Association, on behalf of all the schools really appreciated the efforts put in by the Ashlar Kidz in organizing such a grand and highly effective session especially for the Kindergarten teachers.
