In line with the aim of the School to focus on ‘creation’ and ‘learning by doing’ and development of technology, design thinking, adaptive and computing related skills, we have partnered with Avishkaar, a leading name in the field of robotics learning and education.
Indus World School runs Avishkaar Learning Program (ALP); it is Robotics Program for our students with a hands-on and joyful learning. ALP has been developed and curated by accomplished academicians and practitioners. ALP allows students to use their creativity to discover various connections between robotics technology and real-world problems. ALP is integrated with the School curriculum and contains lesson plans with defined learning outcomes, assessments and teacher development and training.
Our students are immensely able to benefit from ALP in what, how and why aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)
The School has the aim of developing various communication and personality development skills in the students. To this end, the School has tied-up with a New Delhi based organization, Project Aawaaz. The organization helps the students with skills around debate, public speaking, extempore and group discussions.
Through this partnership, which is applicable from Class 3 to Class 10, the students develop fluency in speaking English, general awareness and self-confidence and overcome their hesitation on public speaking. The focus of the partnership is to work on verbal and non-verbal communication skills like gestures and eye contact. Specific modules covered are:
ASSET (Educational Initiatives)
Our school has partnered with India’s number 1 assessment organization, ASSET (it stands for Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing) and it is a scientifically designed achievement benchmarking tool.
ASSET provides us national and international benchmarking assessment for us to know how well the School and the students are doing and where specifically we can improve – not just at student level but also at concept level. ASSET measures an understanding of concepts and application of knowledge in real-life scenarios. KHDA (Knowledge and Human Development Agency), the apex educational body in Dubai, has mandated Asian Schools of Dubai to benchmark themselves through ASSET.
Salient features of ASSET are:
In addition, we provide many training programs through this partnership to improve teaching standards.
Filmkaar Productions is a leading and independent Indian production house that creates entertaining and socially relevant films.
Several award-winning creations by Filmkaar cover serious issues ranging from sustainability and environment to women’s rights and children’s education.
Filmkaar organizes workshops on movie making and advertisement film making. Such workshops are developed for the participants to gain skills in movie making.
Indus World School benefits tremendously from such a partnership as our students are able to get exposure to the latest techniques in movie making, both from creative and technical perspectives.
The Dance Company
At Indus World School, we believe in giving exposure to our students in many ways, including ways to express themselves as individuals - whether through dance or theatre. We also realize that theatre and dance are skills that need a high level of competence to train and tremendous amount of practice by the students. Hence, it is hard to teach a student dance and theatre related skills in a traditional classroom setting. Therefore, we have partnered with The Dance Company, an outfit that specialises in training students on dance and theatre related skills through various interventions including theory classes, workshops, and regular training and practice sessions.
The Dance Company runs after-school dance and theatre classes for our students and students from our neighbourhood.
Albert Einstein once said, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think”. Our mind is precious and is the key to success. It is the most powerful tool that humans possess. A child’s mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. To achieve the objective of inculcating and developing logical and analytical skills in our students, the school has partnered with a leading AI and ML company, Wizklub to set-up ‘Wizklub Cognitive Lab ‘.
Wizklub is an interactive program led by an instructor and delivered via tablet or mobile application to the students of Grade 1 to Grade 7. The aim of the Wizklub Cognitive Lab and the program is to develop and improve the following skills in the students:
