What should schools teach?
"In an unpredictable world where information is easily accessible, the last thing a teacher needs to give her pupils is more information. They already have far too much of it. Instead, people need the ability to make sense of information, to tell the difference between what is important and what is unimportant, and above all, to combine many bits of information into a broad picture of the world."
-Yuval Noah Harari, 21 Lessons for 21st Century
How do we learn?
“Learning takes place best through action. Learning is about becoming- who I might be.
Learning is also highly social”
Peter Senge, Professor at MIT and Author of The Fifth Discipline
“Mind should be consulted in its growth. Education goes from Near to Far”
We want our children to be...
It is said that a 21st century learner should be curious, imaginative, oratorical and open-minded. We say simply, that children should grow to be happy. Happiness begins with freedom to explore and choose. It lasts with the feeling of selfless giving, i.e., loving kindness. Education should be joyful and make learners kind towards others and the environment.
Free thinkers need to be free learners
Children should be free to learn what they like to learn and in the way they learn the best. The role of a teacher or a parent is to reconnect a child’s personality with the inner swabhav or prakriti. A school should be the safe space to explore the learning domains and express freely. With this freedom, children also learn what they need to.
