  • Ensuring that Students Have Understood the Topic
  • Discussion among Students Students can help each
    other by explaining the topic to each other. This
    is especially beneficial for active learners
  • Reviewing the topic The teacher can stop midway
    to review if students have understood the topic.
    This is helpful for reflective learners
  • Preparing pictures and flowcharts A visual
    representation of the subject helps students to
    understand better. This method is helpful for
    visual learners.
  • Games Through games students can be taught to
    experience and understand a subject from the
    inside.

  • Shifting the Focus from Knowing to Understanding
  • Why Should I Learn Learning happens only when
    students are convinced that the subject can be
    applied in the real world. Puzzles and games can
    be used to explain the context of a subject.
  • Project based learning There need not be a
    single answer or a single approach to a subject.
    Teachers can guide students to take drastically
    different approaches towards a topic and find
    their own answers.
  • Doing work that matters Students writing a book
    about the local ecosystem, designing the
    classroom setup, develop ideas about local
    issues, are all examples of getting students to
    do work that matters.

  • Where do we fit in?
  • Strategic Teaching Through interactive online
    games, we help children to actively use their
    knowledge and solve problems.
  • Social Skills Students relate better to flawed
    characters and help them to get over their
    weaknesses in order to win the game. Children are
    taught about effects of smoking, alcoholism and
    withstanding peer pressure.
  • Technology Enriched Leaning With the use of
    computers and mobile gadgets, teachers get to
    monitor individual progress and determine which
    student needs the most attention.
