“Redefining Assessments” is a topic that Tarak feels should be heard since he finds that this generation of teens are not ready to enter the “Real-World” because of how focused students are on their grades and memorizing content, instead of understanding and applying that knowledge in the “Real-World”. Tarak Parikh was born at the heart of India: Mumbai. After the age of five, Tarak and his family came to Hong Kong and have been living in there since. During his time in Hong Kong, Tarak was able to pick-up three different languages fluently. Which include Gujarati, Hindi and English and is currently learning how to speak Mandarin.

Tarak worries that this generation of teens are not ready to enter the “Real World” because of how focused students are on their grades and memorising content, instead of understanding and applying that knowledge. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
