The biggest challenge of our school and most of the other schools is teachers training. It is very easy to train someone to perform a skill but it takes real efforts to inculcate your vision and belief in someone
Pedagogy – The pedagogy enables students to search, understand and critically appraise a topic and boil it down to knowledge. This pedagogy found its roots in ‘Hole in the wall’ developed by TED prize winner Prof Sugata Mitra.
Infrastructure – It’s very important for us to give students an infrastructure which provides them with an environment which can foster learning. We have built digital classrooms for students to enable them with the power of technology; one of the unique features which our school has is iPad Lab for students of pre-primary and primary which increases the level of interest of students and makes learning fun. Sports and extra-curricular activities are given equal importance.
Teachers’ Training – We have designed a three week induction training module for those teachers who join us. This module starts with the basic use of technology, use of developed pedagogy and extends to advanced levels of students assessment. The aim of this training is to train our teachers on how to improve the learning abilities and outcomes of student. Apart from the induction training there are two discussion forums every month where teachers would share their views on improving the teaching techniques using technology.
Technology – The most important thing that technology has blessed our students with is the power of verification. Students can always grasp what the teachers teach and verify, analyse and learn later at their own convenience. This helps student to have a deeper understanding of the subjects taught. Student have the freedom to learn what they want and when they want, they can play – pause – rewind – replay.
