  • 1. India’s first college-preparatory schooleIndia 2012: Essentials forBuilding Visionary Schools ina Globalised World
  • 2. Changed LearnerStudents earlier attended school to get information but now they getinformation everywhere•  Kids dont come to school for information. They come to school with information•  Students exposed to interesting and engaging channels of information (like internet, phone, advertising, television etc) and we are trying to ask them to focus on boring classroom lectures!•  Earlier the belief was work hard, get good marks, get a college degree, get a job, you are successful.

  • 3. So what is schooling about in 21st century?

Great learning happens in group•  Access to information is not a major problem now but what and how to assimilate this is very important•  Information surplus is a problem. School is not just about learning anymore, its all about how kids use this information Reference: TED talk Diana Laufenberg, Dan Mayer & Emily Pillowton

SummaryThe mind is not a vessel that needs filling, but woodthat needs igniting – PlutarchSpend less time filling minds of hungry students withcontent by lecturing at them.Ignite their creativity, their imagination and their problemsolving skills by talking. This is done by doing activelearning in classroom by interacting with studentsThere is no one size fits all. The design solution for fuelingthe Inquisitiveness, expressiveness, Exploration & Selfdiscovery of a student is dependent on –  Student/Teacher background –  Infrastructure available –  Size of the classroom –  Investment (Both time and money by all stakeholders)
