Future of Education shifts To Conscious Learning
Content is not learning. Knowing is not learning. Passing an exam is not an absolute indicator of learning. However, learning is what shifts our beliefs and actions. Learning is about construction of knowledge that is within. It is a practice of reflection, action and silence. Learning is a lifelong pursuit, learning to be, learn, do and live together.
The role of every educator is changing – From content delivery to enabling the construction of knowledge that is within the learner. CE has been facilitating the personal and professional development of heads of schools, teachers, educators, parents as well as youth. Our not-for-profit work is focused on the public education system, community teachers as well as youth. Our work is a mix of structured programs in collaboration with government education systems as well as volunteer-led community programs.
Our school systems program or principal program is run for all government schools of Delhi Directorate of Education i.e.the department under the education ministry of Delhi Government that manages the city’s public school system. Cluster leadership development program in collaboration with SCERT (State Council of Educational Research and Training, Delhi) enables the development of the leadership competencies of the Principal/ Heads of Schools and development of facilitators within the system.
The youth leader program empowers the youth to build meta-skills of learning (to learn). That enables them to navigate through and thrive in the 21st century as a leader.
The Creatnet Way
Learn to BE, Learn to LEARN, Learn to Do, Learn to Live and work together. The future requires individuals to be internally anchored and externally open – with deep learning skills – transferable and real world to grow and navigate in a world where half of tomorrow’s jobs don’t yet exist.
Self-driven learning becomes alive when we believe in the infinite potential of ourselves and that of others, to provide nurturance to enable a construction of knowledge – which is already within. “The first principle of true teaching is that nothing can be taught and the second, that, the mind has to be consulted in its own growth”, as shared by Sri Aurobindo in his synthesis of integral education. Formal education systems tend to emphasize the acquisition of knowledge to the detriment of other types of learning. In self-driven learning, it is he himself who must be induced to expand in accordance with his own nature.
The expansion of awareness in leadership within organizations directly influences the development of organizations. This expands from the level of an individual to groups and systems and is visible in the relationships and behavior. This can be enabled by facilitated group learning by continuous conscious practice of reflection, action and silence.
