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

The 4th Industrial Age has arrived.

AI will render millions of jobs obsolete, and many will not have the skills for new jobs. Need to reimagine school education. Two-thirds of today’s primary children will be required to take up jobs that don’t exist today.

Today’s teaching is focused on content knowledge and not on application and innovation. If schools continue teaching the way they have been doing for the past 200 years, children have a bleak future. The machines will take over! They will have no economic value, and will be consigned to the useless class, or worst, biological waste.

New knowledge must focus more on what what machines cannot teach. Machines are good in knowledge; human beings are good in wisdom. Therefore, the ‘soft’ curriculum should aim at achieving wisdom, innovation and an entrepreneurial mindset, comprising:

  • Wisdom
  • Value
  • Believing in beliefs
  • Independent thinking
  • Team work or collaboration
  • Entrepreneurial mindset
  • Growth mindset
  • Research mindedness and skills
  • How to access credible information
  • Art, music and sports

This is what Indus will endeavour.

With warm regards,
