The Business School Resource center offers a powerful instant case suite based on the latest articles published in Bloomberg Businessweek, a globally well respected business weekly having offices in 1500 locations worldwide. The comprehensive news reports are selectively chosen every week by a group of B-school professors from around the world under the Peregrine Global Services aegis and presented as powerful instant case teaching suite for the global business school classrooms.
SEAA Trust, New Delhi strongly believes the Bloomberg Businessweek based instant case teaching tool would be a powerful addition to the plethora of pedagogic innovations in B-school classrooms. There is also a strong and deep relationship between accreditation and the quality of globally exposed student cohort.
Although BloombergBusinessweek magazine remains academically relevant for business education, the focus of the program is on the enhanced online resource center (http://bsc.peregrineacademics.com/).

More technology in the classroom. Should teaching be left to the teachers?
Voice-powered recognition in the classroom may be the wave of the future, but it must be made better than it is now and prove to be a successful educational tool and not just another gimmick. Educators themselves have raised questions about whether voice technology and other tech gadgets are contributing to students' learning or if that money could be spent on other resources. When it comes to Alexa in the classroom, parents have both educational effectiveness and privacy concerns after Alexa was accused of violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act with its smart speakers.
Startup Bamboo Learning Inc. is attempting to move into the educational realm, launching three Alexa skills — its terminology for apps — that are short lessons and quizzes on music theory, math, and reading. The company also launched a fourth skill when they partnered with Highlights for Children, the seventy-three-year-old children’s magazine. However, when the storybook program was used with a focus group of kids, it "left something to be desired," according to the article. Bamboo's goal is to find a niche with kids and parents. The next step would be the classroom.
