This book upholds the idea of learning and education as a means to individual development and social empowerment. It presents a holistic picture, looking at learning as an integral part of one's social and physical life. Strongly differing from existing classroom perspectives, the bookanalyses integrated learning at its broadest possible imperative-arguing for a spontaneous learning environment within real-life contexts. The book broadly covers: " Creativity in classroom education with a focus on interdisciplinary approach and positive teacher-student interaction " The essence of good education with a deep concern for the impact on the social order " Teachings of Indian and Western educational thinkers-Gandhi,Confucius, Plato, Freire, and Tagore-and their commitment to individual well-being " Application of learning to real-world situations Accessible and reader-friendly, it will be an indispensible resource to students and teachers of educational studies and to the general reader interested in the true spirit of education.
