At The Elegant Public School, we strongly believe that the root cause and the solutions to every problem in our
world lies within the four walls of a school. Every child in our school has the potential to positively
contribute towards building a beautiful world for tomorrow.
How every child is educated in the formative years goes on to define the world’s future. This is a big responsibility for a school. And it requires the school to breathe a radically different culture. Adopting Chrysalis ThinkRoom is our first step forward in this direction.
How does this impact learning in our school?
1. An inquiry-based approach supported by pedagogic research from across the world brings in a culture of thinking in the classrooms.
2. Learning materials are designed to stimulate a child’s mind, encourages the child to think on their own and provides ample spaces for the child to express their thinking freely.
3. Round-the-year ‘Continuing Professional Development’ enriches and equips the teachers with the knowledge, research and pedagogy required for them to be facilitators of learning in the classrooms.
4. The Learning Environment is no just a passive teaching space. But it is an emotionally safe space where every child feels free to think, explore, learn and express.
5. The assessment in these grades are stress-free, unannounced and are designed to be truly ‘for learning’ and not just ‘of learning”.
6. The regular reviews and reflection of school processes ensure every child engages joyfully in the process of learning.
MyPedia is a learning ecosystem that transforms education delivery in schools associated to CBSE & ICSE by integrating all learning and teaching tools in a well-designed and scientific manner. 'MyPedia is not one product. It is a whole-school academic partnership programme that improves students' cognitive skills by continuously partnering with everyone involved in the learning process: teachers, school leaders, parents, and most importantly - students.' Created for Pre-Primary to Grade 8, MyPedia aims to improve the way teachers teach and students learn.
At the heart of this programme are teaching plans that bring together the coursebook, application book, digital content and assessments.
Additionally, MyPedia caters to the assessment needs of the school in order to shed continuous insight into the dynamic process of teaching and learning to track the progress of students and suggest necessary remediation thereafter.
The MyPedia ecosystem also involves continuous engagement with the school through the excellence programme.
