Developing learning ecosystems with low cost or no cost
The biggest three challenges of school education system in India are Approach, Implementation and Sustainable learning ecosystem. Technology is helping everything to transform in 21st century barring Indian education sector. More than 60 percent of the population lives in villages and small towns where quality education is still a distant dream. Even today the approach of school education system has not changed much in the past 50 to 100 years. It is mostly based on rote learning which is generally theoretical in nature and heavy weight is put behind memorization of lessons. With serious lack of practical exposure of the subjects, students are not able to relate their learning in real life.
With the sincere thoughts and innovative ideas of transforming the school education, I formed a team of friends from BIT Sindri, NITs, IITs and IISc Bangalore to establish a school in 2014. We started the first session of Mount Everest Public School from April 2015 and in very short time the school is writing successful stories with innovative experiments in variety of fronts in teaching. Here in MEPS, we have adopted many new learning approaches and methodologies to make education a practical experience for students. It was envisioned since the inception of MEPS to make it a laboratory school for other regular schools in the region. Therefore we are developing a setup of several labs that involves activity-based learning. We are continuously experimenting the new techniques to engage students with their surrounding things and thus creating a low cost maker space at school campus.
MEPS is situated at Chitarpur village in Jharkhand which is surrounded by tribal areas. This location is suitable and conducive for research on tribal and rural education system. Therefore MEPS facilitates the low income private and government schools in developing vibrant learning ecosystem.
Our objective is to facilitate the educators on subjects delivery to the students based on the usage of Teaching Learning Materials (TLM). Our objective is also to support the low income private schools by nurturing the capacity building of their teachers.
