NavGurukul is a beautiful campus. Different classes are held in different buildings. As the students transit from one class to the other, they find ample time to mentally relax, be with nature, play a little and observe the live demonstrations/galleries en route.
When they enter the next building, this is the point where a very important transition occurs. A student who was attending class 5 in the previous session my not be attending the same class in the next subject. He/she might already have jumped to class 7!
Welcome to the world of NavGurukul differential classrooms. The academic life of the student is not cut into the Standardised pie(ce)s, to be eaten one at a time. Rather, each subject has been classified as learning levels: 1-12. Each level roughly may correspond to what you are traditionally used to calling “a standard” or “a class” (like 6th standard, or 9th class). But there are key differences.
1. The student is expected to have a good command on the concepts of all the previous levels, before he/she clears the next level of a given subject. This is totally opposite to the current approach of cramming just before the exams and forgetting it after the exams.
2. Each learner has access to the complete learning material of all the subjects at each level, as allowed by the class teacher.
3. Knowledge about routine information is encouraged through carefully designed video-clips. The subject teacher’s main job is to encourage the assimilation and application of this knowledge.
