Nestled in the midst of a heritage site in a verdant environment in Panchsheel Park is VIDYA’s primary school, Bal Vihar. The educational experience at Bal Vihar is challenging, exhilarating, and sometimes even euphoric. Based on the perception that every child is unique, Bal Bihar provides a conducive, enabling educational environment based on a curriculum designed to accommodate different learning styles nurtured in the ambit of multiple intelligences. The entire educational ecosystem has been reimagined and redesigned to foster a love for learning for the sake of learning. We encourage our students to be out-of-the-box constructive thinkers, inspired to explore their world, ponder over their thoughts, develop a spirit of enquiry and be lifelong learners. The curriculum has been reconceptualised to make it experiential and stimulate autodidactic learning. At VIDYA, we believe learning is collaborating with others, solving problems, critical thinking, and developing communication and leadership skills.
Early last year, COVID-19 threw our plans off gear, albeit for a short while. VIDYA’s team's pan India were galvanized to integrate technological tools in the teaching–learning process. In a short span of time, the classroom interactions were digitized, and e-learning platforms introduced to ensure continuity of learning. We ensured that our children do not dropout, remain physically and mentally healthy, maintain a positive outlook and emerge stronger from the crisis.
For the academic year 2021-22, we are further revising our pedagogy in compliance with the New Education Policy 2020. Artificial Intelligence will alter the face of education in the years to come. Going forward, we are keen to blend technology with the teaching-learning process for improving learning outcomes. This would also help us to prepare our students to be productive members of the fast-evolving global society.
The future always remains unseen, but whatever the future unfurls, one factor that will remain constant will be the significance of sound education based on knowledge and values. This epitomizes the philosophy of schooling at VIDYA Bal Vihar.Attachments:
