Early Years
Welcoming environment for the students

Every day may not be good but there's something good in every day.
The students have settled in pretty well with the 'new normal' and getting a request to join the meeting from the student is not, unheard of. The little ones are becoming adept at muting/unmuting, trying their best to take turns to speak and listen to others carefully. The emphasis is on developing a cordial, welcoming environment for the students, wherein they find their own kind, to speak to and share their thoughts and learning. Read More

Proof of (a+b)2 = a2+2ab+b2

by Paper Cutting

An interesting activity was conducted for the students of MYP4 in which they had to prove an equation (a+b)2 = a2+2ab+b2 by paper cutting. In order to prove the equation, the students cut papers into pieces where the squares, i.e., a2 and b2 , is added to form a2+b2. Whereas, the two rectangles (ab and ab) are added to form 2ab. Hence, the square (a+b)2 is proved by adding all of them together. The students demonstrated their work by video and photos. Through this fun activity, the students gained an insight into how the formula is applicable in real-life situations. Read More

Diploma Programme ( DP )
Active learning – Presentation based learning.

Active learning is an educational strategy which in the process allows students to acquire knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes. Students are made to think critically or creatively, discuss the problem, express ideas, provide and receive feedback, and reflect upon the learning process. Among many active learning strategies, presentation-based learning activities are regarded as the core method to build student's active learning. With this method students develop, organise, and present ideas and materials on a particular topic. Chemistry students of DP1 had their presentations on different allotropes of carbon. Each student was given one allotrope and asked to present information on it using presentation tools of their choice like videos, PowerPoint presentation and paint. The presentation went very well with maximum participation. Read More

The Gurukulian
MIT Vishwashanti Gurukul | Newsletter | OCTOBER 2020 | Three Pages
From Principal's Desk

Welcome to our third edition of “The Gurukulian” , The present situations are transforming education in unprecedented ways. Our mission at present is strengthening the online learning and well-being of our students. During the interaction with the students it is evident that students are taking responsibility of their own learning and setting individual short term goals to achieve. Online learning is providing an opportunity to students and facilitators to understand and encourage optimal use of new technologies. As a team of facilitators we are emphasizing and focusing through the unit of inquiry on developing a positive self –concept and sense of identity , importance of personal and social values and the ability to response constructively to the world around them. In order to sustain the learning engagement of students, the facilitators have sought approaches, opportunities and experiences that are grounded in the students’ social context and that involve them in ‘big ideas’, through ‘rich task’ and ‘authentic assessment’ while also challenging their cognitive capacities. It is mind blowing to witness the e-presentations and commitment of completing the provided task by students. Honestly, this is a great moment to improve our practices and think about teaching and learning with a new perspective that will prepare children for the future, indeed our core team is working on same meticulously.
Apprecaite all parents support and cooperation . We will be patiently awaiting to welcome our students for face to face learning in safe and secured environment.
