THE CLASSTEACHER WORLD:
In traditional education, learning is linear. Solutions offered by Classteacher Learning Systems reflect more closely on the complex and multidimensional nature of life outside the school. They stimulate interaction by encouraging deeper and active participation in the learning process, thus liberating teaching and learning from the constraints of a linear curriculum. The idea is to bring out the latent talent in every student, which conventional classroom methodologies are not geared towards.
Our fundamental beliefs that inform and drive the innovation process:
a) Voluntary learner participation is critically linked to superior learning outcomes
b) The teacher plays a pivotal role as a mentor, facilitator and interpreter of reality
c) Technology and tools must support the primary pedagogic agenda and not vice versa
We believe our role is that of catalyst in the eventual movement towards a globally accessible "Personalized Learning and Differentiated Teaching" environment
THE CLASSTEACHER APPROACH
Our approach to child learning has been heavily influenced by an amalgam of ancient Indian methods of teaching, validated by modern behavioral studies on the subject. The Gurukul system, sadly out of fashion except in the field of music, dance and arts, continues to remain the most efficacious environment for learning and has routinely produced pillars of excellence in Indian music and culture.
Modern studies have confirmed the linkage between the Environment, Attitudes and Behavioural outcomes. In the domain of learning, the right learning environment can, therefore, develop the right attitudes for learning among students. Key elements of this environment include nature, home, peers, the larger society and of course the school. Nearly 70 per cent of students' waking hours are spent in school, therefore the school has a crucial role to play in shaping progressive attitudes and maturity.
However, mere environment and attitude alone is not enough. Given these, Superior Learning outcomes are a product of :
a) The Right Learning Processes - investigative, exploratory, inter-disciplinary
b) The Right Learning Facilitation - building contextual relevance, supportive, participatory and collaborative
c) The Right Tools and Technology - interactive, experimental, kinesthetic, integrated and user friendly
