Pedagogy

Engaging The Learner

The pedagogy used across grades moves beyond lecturing to use engaging activities, discussions, videos, quizzes, games, and varied online creative resources. Technology is integrated into the teaching-learning process, with every classroom being an IT-enabled learning room. We are using variants of the Flipped Classroom approach in all our classes.

Flipped Learning

Flipped Classroom is an attempt to break away from the passive, assembly-line form of teaching that riddles our current educational system. Teachers generate content (video/ text lessons) that are handed over to the learner prior to class, and encourage the students to learn at their own pace. This methodology has proved yet another step towards personalized, self-paced, and learner-driven education.

Going Beyond Textbooks

With the ‘monologue’ section of lectures covered prior to lesson time, the classroom time is now open for doubt-solving, discussion, analysis, learning activities, application of knowledge, creation of additional content, and peer to peer learning. The teacher is no longer hard-pressed for time, and can use lecture hours to provide individual, differentiated solutions to each learner.
