The Learning First system

It has been designed by a dedicated R&D team. This team has been extensively involved in understanding the ‘Developmental Milestones for a Child’ and mapping it to ‘Minimum Learning Levels’ as per the guidelines laid down in the National Curriculum Framework.

Thematic Approach

The curriculum is based on Thematic Approach integrating all the subjects around the theme. This allows the child to study content in an integrated manner instead of separate comparts. Each stage of learning is systematically planned, keeping the student in mind. Each subject follows a clearly defined sequence of learning, beginning from the pre primary level and moving to the primary and middle levels.

Focus is on understanding as against rote learning in the traditional system.

The curriculum is full of engaging skill-based collaborative activities that enable the student to understand, engage and not merely rote learn. This helps the child to relate to challenges and issues of real world and develop skills that are applicable in real life.

Classroom interaction is a combination of activity-based learning methodology based out of real time classroom experiences.

Well-planned activities to cater to all learning styles are integrated into the curriculum and teachers are trained for the same.

Learning is skill-based rather than knowledge-based.

Every subject focuses on acquiring of skills, content being the medium for it. For example, the focus of teaching of science is on building the skills of observation, following instructions, inference, using scientific tools etc.

Teacher is more of a facilitator/ guide than a master of the class.

The facilitator allows for active learning to take place in the classroom. This means creating an environment so that the student constructs new knowledge by linking it to prior knowledge and establishing a link with real life examples.

Emphasis is on inculcating questioning skills in students.

An active classroom in one in which the students ask more questions than the teacher. The lesson is planned in such a way that the students will be curious to know more and hence the questions will come from them.

Assessment is an integral part of the learning system.

Assessment for learning and of learning is based on acquiring of skills.

Timely remedial for bridging learning gaps.

Well-developed remedial kits will help plug the gaps inlearning.

Intensive Teacher Training

Teachers will be trained on the finer aspects of the learning system. They will be given a complete understanding of the pedagogy and psychology ofchildren. They will be provided hands-on training on the activity method of learning. They will be made abreast with the latest in the field of education.

Every one learns in a Learning First! School

All stake holders—student, teachers and parents have something to learn in this system. While students acquire the skills of the future—collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking, teachers become abreast with the latest in the field of education, parents learn to supporting the school for a better future for their children.
