The concept which is disruptive in the world of education, radical in its approach and the most progressive design to cater to the new normal.
Schools are relevant and will be relevant. It is a great place for peers, routine, discipline and not to mention the memories made there, that we cherish for lifetime. The classrooms are refactored and redesigned to cater to the world, the children step out to, after graduating from school.
The whole idea is to make education and learning more relevant – for example -roman numerals are taught to connect the kids to the culture associated with it, but a child’s numeracy is not assessed with it. And English classes need to be more than just about writing essays about vacations. History classes are more about lessons learnt from the past. You need to be taught how relevant are science and geography in our lives.
Entrepreneurship, economics and legal studies can no more be kept away from education system. We need these in our lives and school students need to have a working knowledge of these.
