How our methodology works?

Learning by doing

There are visual, auditory and reading/writing learning styles, but there is a fourth learning style that is easy to overlook: Kinesthetic learning, which is a fancy way of saying "learning by doing". Kinesthetic learning is a learning style in which learning takes place by the students carrying out physical activities, rather than listening a lecture or watching demonstration. It is very important for all round development of a child.

There are a lot of theories about why hands-on learning is so effective. The reality is, there is no single reason "why" But one hard-to-argue fact about hands-on learning is this: It is incredibly engaging.

When students are forced to do something, they are engaged in active learning. They're practicing their skills and they're putting their knowledge to the test. Most importantly, they are actively creating knowledge, instead of passively consuming it.

In order to create, in order to do, students must be engaged in their education. And engagement has for years been linked to greater academic success like increased test scores and greater academic achievements.

Lecturing

Lecture method is the oldest method of teaching. It is based on the philosophy of idealism. This method refers to the explanation of the topic to the students. The emphasis is on the presentation of the content. The teacher clarifies the content matter to the students by using gestures, simple devices, by changing voice, change in position and facial expressions. Teachers are more active and students are passive but the teacher also asks questions to keep the students attentive.

Digital Classes

A digital classroom is typically one that incorporates electronic devices and software into the learning environment. A digital classroom is where a physical classroom extends into a digital space. The space of a digital classroom must hold potential for collaboration or continuing work outside of the classroom: reflective discussion forums online can be a good way to address this. In a digital classroom, the tone is set by technology. Because technology facilitates easy access to learning resources and networks, it's easier for students to track their progress and for professors to highlight student work in a digital classroom.

Nature connect

Lifestyle changes in this era and children led to spending more time indoors and less in nature. Due to safety concerns, longer hours in formal education, as well as lack of suitable outdoor environments, children in particular have been found to spend very little time outdoors. We have an opportunity, both timely and unique to have our children re-connect with nature. Nature connection is a subjective state and trait that encompasses affective, cognitive and experiential aspects in addition to being positively associated with wellbeing and strong predictor of pro-environmental attitudes and behaviours.

Child centric

Our child centred education begins with teachers involving students in a classroom to share in decision making processes and believing in their capacity to lead. When a child learns about the relevance of the subject in discussion it makes leaning more interesting for them. During creative learning when a child chooses the focus of the content, he/she can use imagination to come up with interesting takes on the same subject. Brainstorm and engaging in dialog together help children to match their interests with the skills and concepts. It requires children to be active participants and be responsible participants for their own learning.

Observation

Observation is a powerful technique to understand what a student knows and what he/she could do to improve. Finding time to observe a student may seem difficult, but just two minutes of observation can yield sufficient information to provide valuable, constructive feedback.
