Dr James Abdey, Associate Director, progenitor of the Data Science course at the London School of Economics (LSE), stressed on the significance of various knowledge structures and their effect on classroom pedagogy.

Bratati Bhattacharya, CEO, Shikshayatan Foundation & Shri Shikshayatan School, emphasized on utilising technology for collecting, categorizing, curating, and calibrating, while providing sufficient liberty to promote creativity.
