Primary Grade : 1 - 4
BHIS primary school programme helps engage students in the learning process in creative ways so that young learners can develop a questioning attitude, imagination and the ability to express.The learner is provided with opportunities to develop
BHIS demands and draws an ‘enriched curriculum’ – a curriculum which goes beyond the prescribed printed words of text books and the confines of the classroom to give a 360 degrees perspective of a known fact in any given subject. The result is analysing, experimenting, applying, evaluatingand challenging the proven facts to create new factual knowledge for the coming generations.
The BHIS curriculum, thus, reflects contemporary thinking about what students need to learn in order to lead successful and rewarding lives.
The ‘enriched curriculum’ strongly takes note of the Curriculum Frameworks of the different Boards and the cultural backdrop of the learner. The goals and aims of education being universal remain the same for the varying boards. What is predominantly different is their approach to education and assessments.
The curriculum is perfectly aligned to the directives of various boards with reference to the aims and objectives, the base content, the structures of curriculum and the prescribed system of evaluation. This thought is the foundation for every stride that BHIS takes while designing the learning experiences for its students.
Middle School 5 - 8 & High School 9 - 12
Middle School curriculum works towards grooming the learners to become responsible, confident and reflective individuals; individuals self motivated to engage in innovative activities. This is achieved by making learning interesting and fun rather than a necessity. Pedagogy guided by neuroscience, bloom’s taxonomy, and multiple intelligences, to mention a few ‘make every moment of learning meaningful, joyous and most importantly effective’. Learners are further encouraged to develop a global view through interdisciplinary learning.
In KKEL, integrating technology in classroom is much more than teaching basic computer skills and software in computer period. We include technology across curriculum to enhance the learning process. We believe in blended learning which contributes the best of both realms i.e. self-paced digital learning and facilitator-based class room teaching.
We stepped into digital learning in the academic year 2013-2014 by integrating apps, games, video, movies in curriculum which promotes the 4Cs of 21st century learning skill i.e. collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity. The apps, media, web links are selectively chosen to strengthen the variety of skills along with concept clarity. The focus of integrating technology in curriculum for us is achieving learning goals and outcomes in highly engaging manner, not the devices and apps.
Technology also changes the way teachers teach, offering educators effective ways to reach different types of learners and assess student understanding through multiple means. As technology is effectively integrated into the curriculum, our teachers grow into true facilitators. It helps to make the process of teaching-learning more engaging and rewarding. While using technology to fulfill 4Cs, we intentionally promote responsible and safe use of internet to develop our young digital natives into global digital citizens.
