In our world of information technology where knowledge of the world is a button away the teacher’s role has changed from a purveyor to a facilitator who guides the students in coping with the flood of information coming their way.
The teacher’s role is to design learning experiences that help students understanding concepts and own the knowledge they construct.
The teachers of The Indian School share a relationship of love and trust with the children in their care. Reward and punishment are woven into the fabric of this relationship so that when either praise or censure is exercised, the student is conscious that it is fully deserved.
Over a period of time, the pupil becomes his/her own monitor and explicit disciplining becomes less and less necessary.
