In order to achieve stress free environment for children, continuous interaction between parents and teachers is a must
Rumi Education is an Organisation that cares deeply about teaching and learning and has created wonderful Pre- Primary Curriculums for schools. For all those who are associated with Rumi, the experience of building and implementing these programmes has been a rather joyful one. A number of new ideas have been uncovered in this journey.
The most important idea uncovered is that we need to teach certain specific things to the children. We do serious disservice to children by focussing purely on academics rather than on the process through which learning is delivered at schools. With increased aspirations and continuous competition to outperform, the child cannot be given stress free environment to blossom. We need series of interactions between parents and teachers for bringing maximum possible value to the child.
The direct impact of well adjusted and productive adults on society and economy is well documented. As educators we have to consciously create opportunities to generate feeling of well being in the children through the designing of child centric curriculum. The process can only be facilitated through the active participation of parents and teachers in the process. There is a need of continuous excellence in teaching learning process.
Teachers have to be thoroughly trained in delivering materials in a consistent and standardised manner to insure better learning outcomes.The content has to be internalised, it must be thoroughly understood by the teachers to enable them to properly deliver the same to the students.Schools and teachers must also include activity based learning as much possible while delivering the curriculum.
