Creating Life Literate Learners for 21st Century

Creating Life Literate Learners for 21st Century

The BRGS Indirapuram philosophy is to prepare students for life, and not merely for exams. Students at BRGS are prepared to adapt and also discover new possibilities in this ever-changing world by learning how to read, write, and speak in foreign languages. Students are prepared not only to excel in academics but also to succeed in life.

Additionally, 15 years of education prepares students for a wide range of skills and knowledge,including the ability to understand the world around them as well as how to make a positive impact on their surroundings through their actions. The goal of BRGS Indirapuram is to incorporate real-world skills in the students.

As each child is unique, we support individuality through a stimulating environment that includes a variety of learning opportunities and ensure the acquisition of multiple abilities.

Schools in the twenty-first century must prepare children to be productive citizens in a world filled with undiscovered jobs, issues, and technologies. While contemporary trends such as globalization, emerging electronic technologies, and climate change suggest probable societal futures, much remains unknown about the personal and civic lives that students are most likely to lead.

As a 21st Century School we determine the culture to stabilize and incorporate both complexity and uncertainty. A commitment to excellence in education and learning in the twenty-first century entails more than providing a superior or exceptional high-quality curriculum. Additionally, educational quality entails using ethical structures and processes and moral role models, and engaging experiences for students and educators. The education imparted is outstanding and learning is of the highest quality, founded on and sustained by self-control, fairly completed, and beneficial to those engaged.

How can schools specifically fulfill this goal? By redefining their purpose as citizen learner development, citizen-learners comprehend the complexities and ambiguities of their world. They acquire and share knowledge, establish relationships with their community, and engage in significant activities that benefit both their own and others' well-being. They are willing to engage with others to address urgent issues of personal and communal importance, such as environmental sustainability, globalization, or the computer revolution. Citizen learners take courageous, compassionate, and reflective actions to enhance their own and others' lives.

To promote citizen-learners, we recognize four critical questions in addition to a set of fundamental capacities and related competencies. Class examples from a range of quality levels demonstrate how the capabilities manifest themselves in practice. A subsequent study outlines design concepts, techniques, and experiences for a professional development version accompanying such a curriculum.
