Collaborative Learning Model

85% of a teacher’s time is spent in routine tasks: preparation and delivery of content (4 out of 7 periods a day), formative and summative assessments, house-keeping and record-keeping chores. As a result, she finds it a challenge to spend quality time and personalize learning; to teach the child, and not just the subject. After all, that is her primary role.

We intend to introduce teacher-robots in the near future; they will make the teacher more relevant than what they are today. This will be marked by complementary between human teachers and robots as shown below:

Dear Friends,

What Machines Cannot Teach

We have entered the era of the 4th Revolution characterized by Artificial Intelligence, automation, job obsolescence, volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.

The challenge in education is staring us in the face. How do we prepare children for a world in which 40 % of today’s jobs will disappear by 2035, by the time they enter the workforce? New jobs will require a totally different set of skills and competencies.

We believe that our preparations must begin from the early and primary years. In this regard, parents will play a key role by:

1. Stop over-protecting children, to enable them to think and act for themselves, and become risk-takers and innovation.

2. Avoid providing instant gratification to children.

3. Strictly regulating screen time to enable children to be:

Be empathetic

Engage the world around them

Play with pets

Read picture / story books even before they can read

Be with nature

With warm regards,
