The Karadi Path Education Company is a social innovation enterprise that creates an English environment for classrooms, rich in Indian experiences and culture, to help children learn the language through a process of discovery.
The company organized a workshop on Reimagining the English Classroom’ which I attended on 17th October 2019 at The Orchid , Vile Parle.
The resource person, took us through a series of reasons why our schools should look at innovative , age appropriate and creative engaging environment for the teaching learning process to be fully optimized especially with regards to the English language.
The Karadi Path has developed an indigenous methodology to deconstruct the way in which we learn languages naturally from the environment, and reconstruct a similar process for the classroom.
It was indeed reassuring to know that the pedagogy adopted at our Pre primary was in tune with their methodology and be it the play way method or the inclusion of dance, movement ,music and drama we are already doing it all.
A few action tricks was a take home for me from this workshop.
