Site of the week
Hole in the wall is a site that point from the idea that "children need not only basic education, but also the ability to deal with an increasingly complex and connected world. The school need to create inclusive educational solutions that address all sections of society and help transform them".
"Minimally Invasive Education™ is one such solution – a solution that uses the power of collaboration and the natural curiosity of children to catalyze learning".
Minimally Invasive Education is defined as a pedagogic method that uses the learning environment to generate an adequate level of motivation to induce learning in groups of children, with minimal, or no, intervention by a teacher.
The idea is not completely new, but it has been crystallized over a period of time based on observations and educational experiments conducted at NIIT.
