The CBSE board prescribes co scholastic education as part of the syllabus that contributes to the holistic development of the child. As part of this program, the school has developed an online learning module in association with an external agency.
Prepmyskills is a platform that enables learning and updating of skills, to meet the demands of the fast changing world. For students of classes 6- 10, financial management and value system modules have been exclusively created for Kumaranites by the organization – Fugo Creative.
The value system module deals with topics like respect for the country, scientific thinking, peace and harmony while the financial module deals with banking concepts ,stocks & shares, mutual funds etc. Students are able to study the course material at their pace in the comfort of their homes.
Mindspark is a computer based self-learning programme that helps the child improve her skills in Mathematics. The interactive interface ensures that the student is not learning passively by listening to someone, or viewing ready-made solutions, but learning by answering questions of progressively increasing complexity levels.
An advantage of Mindspark is that it harnesses the power of new technologies to bolster learning. An intelligent computer system uses a complex adaptive logic to decide what problem to serve up to a student next, based on the students’ response to problems.
The self paced learning allows students to get the doubts with the help of explanations where needed.
