21st Century Education at your Doorstep
During the first few years, a child goes through rapid physical and mental development that demands an ideal instructional environment that could actualize this untapped reservoir of energy. So wise selection of the alma mater of a child by his/her parents is of significant consequence as it bears an indelible impression on his/her mind especially at this present era which has become immensely complex because of challenges and opportunities such as diversity, technology and globalization.
The children of the present age are not confined to local and national boundaries, but they are the citizens of a world shrunk into a small global village. They don't play any more with simple toys of the past, but they literally take in the world via the filter of computing devices: the cellular phones, handheld gaming devices, iPods and laptops they take everywhere, plus the computers, TVs, and game consoles at home. Today the teachers are working with students whose entire lives have been immersed in the 21st century media culture.
This situation urgently make demands on the intelligentsia of our society to step forward and open such schools which mean the overall development of our children creating in them the characteristics needs to meet the challenges of the 21st century. So we need an educational programme that helps create the following qualities in our children.
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
- Curiosity and Imagination
- Agility and Adaptability
- Initiative and Entrepreneurialism
- Accessing and Analyzing Information
