Learnings 2019 #1 : Students will decide what & how will they learn
“If I have flexibility of learning
according to my own style,
I get more involved.”
- class 6 student, CBSE
Our research suggests that future class rooms will become more and more student led. To put in simple words, students will be given the opportunity to decide what they want to learn/not learn and how. As a result, a teacher will become a facilitator. It is important to give them time to reflect on their thoughts & learnings. Doing this can trigger self learning through exploration.
Today teachers are adopting rather flexible approaches of learning. A conventional classroom, where teachers 'dictate' are loosing their charm and credibility among urban Indian parents and students both.
What to keep in mind:
Make sure that students get time for self reflection.
Facilitate students to grow while exploring.
Enable teachers to personalise in class learning experience.
Learnings 2019 offer a wholistic, unbiased human centric perspective to sensitise organisations about user behaviour and emerging markets. If used consciously, it can help in creating meaningful & responsible solutions that have a positive social impact.
During the year 2019, we at Crossed Design worked on various design projects ranging from education, community, technology, governance etc.. These projects offered an opportunity to spend a lot of time in understanding people collecting real user stories, experiences and narratives across varied geographic, linguistic, economic and social backgrounds of India. These stories when carefully deconstructed and analysed, uncovered behaviour patterns and user insights.
We present to you, a curation of some of the most exciting learnings from the field - Learning 2019. These learning were accumulated as part of ongoing user research and usability studies conducted in the last year. To get a glimpse of all learnings, visit ‘Learnings2019’.
