India educationists to modify learning processes

For an accurate assessment of the current learning methods education experts from Indian syllabus-based CBSE schools in the GCC and India are taking initiatives to ensure that students clearly understand core concepts while learning. Recently a discussion was led by GEMS Education, a leading international education company, and the India-based Educational Initiatives (EI), an internationally renowned organisation in the field of child psychology and student assessment methods. Research by Educational Initiatives shows that while children today respond to rote-based questions relatively well, they fail to answer unfamiliar or application-based questions due to unclear core concepts Dr Wasil, Director of GEMS Education, said, “Assessments carried out with the right spirit and approach is a sure-shot path to empowerment and school leadership has to be ever on the learning curve to ensure this.” Sridhar Rajagopalan, Managing Director, Educational Initiatives, said EI and GEMS share the same philosophy of providing an improved system in the region.
