The bygone year 2020 -21 in many ways was a challenging year, yet it also paved the way for many much awaited and pleasant changes. The New Education Policy, NEP 2020, is such a welcome change and we are going to implement the changes suggested by NEP from this very session itself. I am quite confident that besides cultivating ‘21st-century skills’ among students, including critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity and digital literacy, it will also be the catalyst for many other changes necessary for the holistic development of the students and growth of human society.
According to David A. Kolb, learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience. The NEP focuses on experiential learning, equity and discovery based teaching learning methods. We at our school promote these with the help of peer tutoring, creative, collaborative and joyful exploratory activities in classrooms for experiential learning and deeper student learning. Our classrooms are very inviting where students feel happy and comfortable. To eliminate rote learning, blended approach is adopted by integrating technology on a wider scale to improve classroom processes and achieve students’ academic goals. Art-integrated education is embedded in classroom transactions not only for creating joyful learning but also for imbibing the Indian ethos through integration of Indian art and culture in the teaching and learning process at every level. The students are assigned projects of art integration encompassing two subjects that will focus less on theory and more on understating and creativity for better comprehension of the concept.
Raman Kant Munjal Foundation has its own Vocational Development Centre wherein learners are trained to develop certain skills like candle making, jute bags making, stitching, computers etc.,. We intend to imbibe these skills in our students by embedding them in their co-curricular activities to enable the students explore their areas of interest beyond academics and also to enhance their employability probabilities.
We are all set for implementing the vision of the NEP with great fervor. The new pedagogies will certainly encompass the needs of the students making them skillful learners who are competent to face real time challenges.
Let us collaborate to experience joyful and experiential learning …..
