My interests

  • Why you would like to consider yourself to be a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.

As a microsoft expert educator and the use of innovative technologies to enhance learning of Biology

As a Microsoft expert educator I will help to improve student achievement by using technology to redesign the learning experience and to reform education by bringing positive change to the teaching-learning environment. The insights proposed are as follows:

• The formulation of and adherence to an implementation plan. Like any project, technology integration needs to be properly planned and the plan needs to be adhered to and its implementation monitored. Without this, there will be little or no chance for successfully achieving the set goals.

• The creation of an information network in and among schools with access to the Internet.

• The creation of new technology-rich learning communities of teachers and students that

(1)   foster more active learning,

(2)   provide access to information,

(3)   enable teacher-student communication and collaboration irrespective of time, geography, age and ability,

(4)    transform the classroom into a global learning environment by providing links to the rest of the world, and

(5)   Link homes, schools and society so that learning not only occurs in schools but anywhere and at anytime during the life of an individual.

(6)   I believe that school in Mauritius is more than a place of instruction or a “knowledge distribution center”, rather a place where school community learns together to solve their problems and to reach their goals more effectively. Schools are functioning as a “learning organization” as indicated by: Providing continuous learning opportunities; Fostering inquiry and creativity, encouraging sharing ideas and collaborations; as well as interacting openly with their environment. In a learning innovative school, students are pursuing common purposes with a collective commitment to regularly weighing the value of those purposes, modifying them when that makes sense, and continuously developing more effective and efficient ways of accomplishing those purposes and to function as a “learning organization” in one of the major challenge of an innovative educator

Mauritius, my Beautiful island, as a Biologist and a Mauritian,

'Mauritius is not just about sun, sea and sand. There is a whole "nature" dimension to experience inside the island in the midst of its lush vegetation. Being of volcanic origin, Mauritius offers a haven of natural beauty.

Flora: The flora of Mauritius is composed of 700 species of indigenous plants. Vividly coloured flowers decorate the island. With over 60 orchid species alone, Mauritius is the second largest supplier of plants and cut flowers in the world after the Netherlands. Many of those plants are threatened with extinction.

Fauna: The absence of man and the isolation of the island of Mauritius over millions of years have enabled a remarkable fauna to evolve here, undisturbed. This is often the case in remote and isolated islands. However, the arrival of man and the ensuing colonisation have impacted negatively on the native wildlife, leading many species into extinction or on the edge of it.


I am also a professional Beekeeper in the Field of Apiculture Bee wings

My optional community service (learning contract) project

100px-L4C-small.png  Agreement
By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddy. In return for this free training opportunity, I will give the gift of knowledge by donating or developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by myself (and others) on WikiEducator.
Brief description of project
<lesson for AS level: Microscopes and their uses in Biology >
Target date for completion
by the end of December 2010

Welcome - glad to see you're up and running! - Randy Fisher 10:25, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
  • That's a colorful and informative page you have Fardeen. A small suggestion is to use contrasting colors for the background and the text. All the best... Cynthia..--Agnes 14:13, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
