The Alokito Hridoy model embodies a holistic approach to education. We know that like our rapidly changing world, education must also be dynamic. Our methods are in line to support this exponential change.
We are improving the quality of education by preparing children with social, moral, emotional and cognitive skills to be adaptive, proactive and innovative problem solvers. Our learning style is inquiry based: learning by playing, problem solving and inquiring.
This is not only a supportive and innovative learning environment – this is a design thinking approach to understand the real impact of education.
Alokito Hridoy School Model
Having implemented this model in all our school and government primary schools, we are continuously evaluating and evolving the model based on its effectiveness. We aim to extend the model to other schools and organizations to fuel change at a systemic level.
Quality education means excellence in core academic skills, the development of emotional intelligence and 21st-century skills and values, active partnership with parents and integration with the community.
We build and develop a team of teachers, a school leader and admin collaborating to run the school. By providing training in classroom settings we want to prepare teachers who can teach using game-based approaches, inquiry-based approaches and problem-based approaches.
The Alokito Hridoy curriculum and Network Support Team empowers teachers and school leaders with best practices in pedagogy, using a skills-based approach and rigorous standards for student learning.
We share our resources with the partnered schools to allow them to develop a creative ecosystem. We have designed engaging, hands-on, workbooks so that students can be assessed continuously. Teacher's resource book is also provided by us to ensure greater application of progressive pedagogic approaches.
Parents As Partners
Parents actively engage in the process of their child’s development through programs such as the Best Mother's Award given on the occasion of Mother's convention. We also engage parents in events like Science Fair, Earth Day, Report Card Day, Sports Day, etc where we also try to address key issues such as women’s empowerment, substance abuse, physical violence and others.
Accountability in Partnered Schools
All schools undergo a school development review to assess progress and plan next steps for school development. The review is conducted by the school, the Alokito Hridoy team, and external stakeholders. We also follow metrics based assessment of both teacher and students performance.
Alokito Hridoy School
We have developed innovative education approaches in Alokito Hridoy School, which functions like an education lab and conducted a number of teaching-learning experiments. We then piloted our pedagogical approaches in government and private schools. Our approaches allow teachers to play the role of a 21st century mentor by engaging students to learn the 21st century skills like collaborative problem-solving, creativity, adaptability and social-emotional intelligence.
We have curated workshops with the aim to develop 21st century educators who can design student-centered, joyful, safe and innovative learning environment.
