Inclusive Education


Moderneducation and training have failed to produce men and leaders of character andintegrity who can make India attain its past glory. Not only in India, butworldwide, there is a cry for going back to basic values. In order to produceenlightened citizens, we conduct Value Education Programs on Human ResourcesDevelopment, Self-Development, Leadership and Personality Development etc. forstudents and teachers of educational institutions. These are based ontime-tested Indian wisdom. It is proposed to extend the program to rural areas.Several audio visual aids have been developed to make it attractive. We areconducting Education programs in our school since 2010.

Our Objective:

1.     To Inspire studentstowards enlightened citizenship

2.     To make the Studentsaware and convinced of the higher dimensions of education, work and life.

3.     To enable students toplan and harmonize their thoughts-actions-goals towards the higher.

4.     To help students toget established in self-development practices to develop powers of mind –viveka, strength and fearlessness to walk the critical path towards the highestperfection and happiness.

SMARTCLASS

 

Smartclass did what no one had ever thought of before, bringtechnology into the classroom. It brought an exhaustive repository of worldclass digital modules or lessons, (consisting of 2D and 3D animations,graphics, audio and video) on every subject in the K12 spectrum, which theteacher could easily access and project in the classroom that illuminated andexplained abstract and difficult concepts with liquid clarity. The result wasamazing. Knowledge flourished freed from the centuries old bonds of books andchalk and blackboard. A new light of understanding dawned on young awakenedminds. And the classroom became a fascinating place to be in as a newgeneration of learners saw (instead of just being told and explained) for thefirst time how things happened. And the teacher smiled as she now saw not justone, two or three but a sea of hands go up every time she asked a question.

Now, imagine a Science teacher explaining how a DNA replicates,a History teacher teaching a class about the Harappan Civilisation, or a Geographyteacher teaching how Block mountains are formed. The best of teachers takepains to explain the concepts largely depending on their own abilities. Thestudents listen to the teachers, try to decipher the figures drawn on theblackboard and read from their text books, take notes and try hard to visualizehow it happens and remember. At the end of the class, the teacher asks a fewrandom questions to assess how the class fared. Invariably a few hands (mostlyof the same set of brightest students in class), go up, the answers are givenand the class ends.

Smartclass brings about a complete transformation in classrooms.The Science teacher while explaining how a DNA replicates is able to show theclass a 3D animation of the DNA replication process on a large screen. She canexplain the fine points of the process, zoom in to show the relevant visuals,freeze and annotate when and where she needs to emphasise. Similarly theHistory teacher shows the class a virtual walk through of the HarappanCivilisation. Uncovering the relevant parts step by step as a part of herlesson plan , while the Geography teacher shows a virtual Block mountain beingformed…all with engaging animations, colors, music, sounds and voice. Theteachers gain complete attention and interest of every child in the class.Every child gets a visual input on how it happens and the concepts are wellunderstood and internalised.

Towards the end of the class, every teacher displays a set ofquestions on a large screen, every child in class gets ready to answer thequestions with their personal answering device – SAS. Students click theanswers, instantly, teachers are able to get a score sheet for every child inclass. She ends the class re –teaching the parts of the lesson that were notunderstood well by class.

The result: faster and accurate understanding of the concepts inclass and consequently improvement in the overall academic performance ofstudents. Now all of this was possible with smartclass as it existed beforeCTS.

With CTS a lot more is possible. The science teachers can use aDiagram Drawer which plays a step by step line drawing animation of say how todraw stages of DNA replication or block mountain formation. She can get abrilliant Teaching Idea by clicking on the Teaching Idea icon before shecommences teaching. Or use the Topic Synopsis or Mind Map to recapitulate thesalient points of a lesson or concept taught. She can also click on Simulationto show virtual experiments without having rely on limited Lab availability.There are Worksheets, Weblinks and then in the days to come access tosmartclass Teacher Fraternity Resources an ideas and best practices portalwhich will give any teacher to share and access pedagogical expertise.
