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:

From the CEO/MD’s desk

It took Covid 19 to remind the world that, online teaching, learning and working is not a substitute for classroom teaching, but an alternative. The present pandemic has shattered this glass-ceiling. Regrettably, most teachers continue teach online they way they taught offline. This is the gravest default that will lead to irreversible consequences when children become adults. Even from a neurological perspective, it is unsound and unhealthy, because the plasma medium is vastly different to the paper medium. 

Online learning is empowering, because it helps a child to take responsibility for her / his learning. Moreover, unlike classroom teaching, a teacher can effortlessly personalise the learning of individual students. 

The greatest gift of online learning is in developing competencies. This is because it emphasises non-linear learning through self-learning and greater imagination which inevitably leads to creativity and innovation. We should welcome this big shift, as it will afford children greater opportunities to be innovative - the only way to succeed in the future. 

The future of learning will be blended - a mix of online and offline learning. Likewise, the future of work too will be a healthy blend of work from home and office. This future has already arrived and children and parents should adapt readily. 

 

With warm regards,
