Doodle marks Teachers' Day with sketch doodle depicting emergent roles of teachers
On the occasion of Teachers Day, celebrated in India to mark the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan on September 5, internet search engine giant Google has put up a doodle on its home page showing an octopus conducting multiple intelligences based multi-disciplinary lesson on fish in an underwater classroom.

"The doodle aptly depicts the emergent roles of a teacher as multi-modal presenter and facilitator of learning. The teacher, in the present times has to be process-based who passes on more and more learning responsibility to students in a differentiated and inclusive way. Basically, teacher has to create learning environment and intervention for all students to learn. In other words,  a teacher has be a learning designer and interventionist," I wrote reacting to the doodle.

In India, the Teachers' Day is being observed since 1962. In various institutions, the usual routine activities and classes get taken over by students along teachers receiving gifts, cards, thanks giving being replaced by activities of celebration, thanks giving to present and ex-teachers and special talks.

In New Delhi, President Ramnath Kovind is going to felicitate the winners of National Teachers' Awards 2018. This year, 46 teachers, selected nationwide are being felicitated.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi  while paying tributes to former President Dr. Radhakrishnan on his birthdayi, greeted the teaching community saying, "Teachers Day greetings to everyone. India pays tributes to Dr. S Radhakrishnan, an exceptional teacher and mentor, on his Jayanti."
