New Delhi [India], December 1 (ANI/BusinessWire India): VEGA School, leads the way with 'Problem based learning' (PBL) teaching methodology to become the first Indian school with progressive future ready learning curriculum and practices that meet the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 compliances for early learninghigher education in India.
With the (NEP) 2020 replacing the previously administered National Policy of Education of 1986, the Ministry of Human Resource Development of India intends to overhaul and update the Indian education system at the foundational learning and higher education level in schools across India.
The NEP 2020 policy is geared towards meeting the demands of the new 21st Century post-pandemic world where the needs of the people and the country need to be aligned towards creating an 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' in the future. The aim is to make India a global knowledge superpower and to create change-makers who will lead us into the future.
The latest National Education Policy (NEP 2020) which came into effect from July this year, will bring about a much awaited sea-change that's set to take place in the current education system in schools across the country. Right from the curriculum and pedagogy in teaching, to the currently emphasized rote learning practices in most Indian schools.
"The NEP 2020 is designed to bring India's school education at par with some of the most advanced nations. The new age teaching methods at Vega Schools is perfectly in sync with the 4 main pillars of the NEP 2020," said Dr Steven Edwards, Co-founder of Vega Schools (Gurgaon).
With this policy coming into effect, schools across the country will have to make an immediate switch to comply with these 4 pillars of the NEP and start transitioning towards a teaching pedagogy and education system that is in sync with global learning standards and practices which is future aligned.
In order to meet the new education policy guidelines, schools in India will have to change their current model of teaching, learning outcomes and assessment of their students according to these NEP guidelines: 1) End of rote learning, 2) Curriculum to integrate critical thinking and creativity to inculcate 21st century skills, 3) Community Participation, 4) Assessment reforms.
This policy will bring forth a much awaited change in the way the current and future generation of children in India will learn and study in schools. Embracing these changes in the current education system will be challenging and time-taking for a majority of schools in the country.
"It will not be easy for schools to comply with the NEP 2020, but we are proud that thanks to our unique PBL (Problem based learning) teaching methodology we are the forerunner in our NEP 2020 compliance," said Sandy Hooda, Co-founder of Vega Schools (Gurgaon).
Despite the uphill task ahead for many leading schools across Delhi-NCR, Vega schools - Gurgaon, (ranked as one of the best schools in Gurgaonawarded among top 5 emerging high potential schools in India 18-19 by Education World) is one such school where the curriculum and learning pedagogy is already aligned with the NEP 2020 guidelines.
VEGA School-Gurgaon, is credited for leading the way towards the next generation of education and schools for the children of the new world with its unique and globally recognized 'Problem based learning' (PBL) methodschool structure that is already NEP compliant across these 4 pillars.
"Vega school's approach towards learning is quite different from other schools. The PBL-Problem Based Learning approach not only helped my child to learn in a more interactive way, but it also encourages the learners to satisfy their inquisitiveness through probing, and applying that learning in the real world. I have seen a tremendous transformation in the overall learningdevelopment of my 8 year old over the last three years since we shifted her to the PBL module and away from the conventional rote based learning at her previous school," said Dr Seema Rekha, the parent of a grade 3 student at Vega school.
Conceptual learning will also help strengthen a child's foundational skills, understanding, comprehension capabilities and aptitude as they develop; enabling them to further their chances of establishing successful careers in the future.
