The world that we live in today is starkly different from that of the 20th century. Content is ubiquitous and free, routine, and advanced tasks are being automated, top-down structures are being replaced by flat structures of project-based teams and technological breakthroughs are changing every aspect of our life.
Our education has to come up to speed with these realities. Mastery of the “3 R’s” (reading, writing, and arithmetic) is no longer enough, nor is the superficial recollection of facts. What is needed is deeper learning of content through its application in solving real-life issues. Also, content knowledge needs to be complemented with the purposeful development of critical skills (problem-solving, creativity, communication, collaboration) and universal human values (empathy, positivity, equanimity, and the ethic of excellence).
The Covid-19 is only a catalyst to transform the school education space. As the world becomes socially distant, it is time to reflect on the purpose of education and reimagine the Schools. This is the opportunity to transform learning and make it possible to offer the best schooling and learning experience to every child, irrespective of his place of residence.
Most traditional schools have failed to transform and meet the expectation of this brave new world. With homeschooling through 21K, you can be assured of structured, progressive, and personal learning for your child.
