The World Economic Forum says, “Our education systems are relics of the past. It’s time to bring them into the present.” Unfortunately, schools’ teaching and education practices are still firmly rooted in traditions that have been around for years. For decades, the Indian education system has supported memorising concepts without much room for experiential learning. Despite living through the Fourth Industrial Revolution, our schools and education systems still resemble the aspects of the past.

Our education systems are relics of the past. It’s time to bring them into the present.

Schools often think that passing one grade, taking the exams, and going to a decent college is all students need to live a fulfilling life. However, the dynamics of modern education have changed, and it is no more about getting through one more grade. Instead, it’s about gaining experiences that ensure the holistic development of children.

These experiences reside beyond their curriculum, helping them indulge in real-life scenarios to prepare them for life. This approach aims to ensure the holistic development of a student, which is much more than prompting students to get good marks or pass one more grade.

Keeping this in mind, New Education Policy 2021 advocates for the need for holistic and experiential learning for students.

What does NEP state?

New Education Policy 2021 states, “Pedagogy must evolve to make education more experiential, holistic, integrated, inquiry-driven, discovery-oriented, learner-centred, discussion-based, flexible, and, of course, enjoyable. The curriculum must include basic arts, crafts, humanities, games, sports and fitness, languages, literature, culture, and values, in addition to science and mathematics, to develop all aspects and capabilities of learners; and make education more well-rounded, useful, and fulfilling to the learner.”

According to New Education Policy 2021, academic excellence alone doesn’t guarantee success in life. Moral, emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual dimensions should be taken well into consideration by schools for holistic development.

LEAD - Your Partner to Ensure Students’ Holistic Growth & Development

New Education Policy 2021 brings new life to the Indian education system by replacing old learning methods with new ones. To make learning holistic, experiential, enjoyable and engaging for students, LEAD, India’s largest School EdTech company, offers several highly innovative programmes for schools, such as:

LEAD Championships

LEAD Championships is a collection of national-level competitions that provides a platform for students to showcase their skills and talent to the world while competing with other students from across the country. Over 3500+ schools participate in LEAD Championships, and more than 14 Lakh students across multiple categories and age groups learn, enjoy, and win. In addition to the competitions, the platform provides participants with a rich learning experience via workshops and masterclasses conducted by renowned experts.

LEAD Summer Camp

LEAD Summer Camp is an annual 6-week programme packed with thrilling activities for relaxing and engaging summer vacations. Students of LEAD-partner schools not only learn important skills but also win vouchers, certificates, prizes, rewards, and much more. The camp is organised on the LEAD Student App, and all students from Nursery to Class 9 are eligible to participate in the camp. Every activity is carefully designed by LEAD’s curriculum and pedagogy experts to stimulate students’ brains and creativity and fill any learning gaps.

Student Led Conferences (SLCs)

Student Led Conferences (SLCs) is an initiative by LEAD to make learning fun and engaging for students to ensure better learning outcomes. During this activity, students become teachers for a day and explain a concept or give a short demonstration on a topic in front of teachers and parents. This boosts students’ confidence and improves their subject knowledge while uplifting their communication and presentation skills. Student Led Conferences are conducted in both online and offline modes in LEAD-partner schools.

LEAD Masterclass

Designed to ensure children’s holistic development, the LEAD Masterclass is an exclusive platform for students of LEAD-powered schools where they learn life skills from celebs like R. Madhavan, Chetan Bhagat, Sania Mirza, Leander Paes, and many more. After the Masterclass, students get personalised certificates signed by celebrities, while lucky winners get signed memorabilia. Thus, this program boosts students’ confidence and ensures their all-around success in life.
