The ApniPathshala learning pod model offers an alternative to traditional classroom education by providing an immersive learning experience that caters to the specific needs of each student.
With ApniPathshala, not only do students learn faster and better, they also score more marks in their exams, because they enjoy the benefits of a flipped classroom model, doubt-solving sessions, and exam preparation.
Flipped Classroom Model
The flipped classroom model is a teaching method that reverses the traditional classroom dynamic by providing students with pre-recorded video lectures before the school teacher covers the topic class. Students are better prepared , because the videos are produced by the world’s best teachers, and are available free online at www.beyondexams.org, Khan Academy, and YouTube University. The pod manager curates these, and students help each other to find the best videos, mapped to the syllabus.
This allows students the flexibility to learn at their own pace. They can watch the lectures many times, and rewind sections they didn’t understand. Additionally, the flipped classroom model enables students to engage in active learning, where they can work collaboratively with their peers. This helps them get their basics right, so they no longer have to depend on mindless rote memorisation.
By incorporating the flipped classroom model into our learning pods, ApniPathshala helps students get a deeper and better understanding of the subject matter . This allows them to impress the school teacher the next day in class, because they have already mastered the subject, and being the teacher’s pet will help them improve their exam marks ! The pod manager teacher can tailor the pre-recorded lectures to the specific needs of each student, ensuring that they grasp the concepts thoroughly. They can even create their own videos in their local language, and share these publicly, so that other students can also benefit.
One of the biggest challenges students face in traditional classrooms is the inability to ask questions or clear their doubts during class. This can be particularly problematic for students who require more time to understand certain concepts. However, ApniPathshala allows students to ask questions and have their doubts cleared by their friends in a more personalized setting.
In an ApniPathshala learning pod, the pod manager can set up doubt-solving sessions that allow students to ask questions and get personalized attention. These sessions can be structured around specific topics or concepts that students struggle with, and students can get immediate feedback and guidance on how to improve. Older students can help younger students with stuff they don’t understand, and both benefit as a result of this peer-to-peer learning.
By having regular doubt-solving sessions, students can improve their understanding of the subject matter and identify areas where they need to put in more effort. The manager can also track each student’s progress and provide additional external support from experts when necessary, ensuring that all students are progressing toward their academic goals.
Exams are a critical part of a student’s academic journey, and proper exam preparation can significantly impact their grades. However, many students struggle with exams because of anxiety, lack of confidence, or insufficient preparation. They often end up getting low scores because they aren’t prepared well, because no one has taught them how to give exams well.
ApniPathshala helps students prepare for exams by collecting all the exam papers of the past years, and allowing students to practise these during mock exam sessions. This helps students master time management skills.
The pod also provides model answers, so that students can use these as a guide to crack the exam more efficiently. Students help each other by sharing the earlier year’s exams, and the notes of the school-teacher ( which rarely change !). The brighter students can set mock exams for the other students, to help them overcome their anxiety, and to master the art of answering exam papers. Practice makes perfect, and there is plenty of time to rehearse for the actual exam !
In fact, these pods can offer parents a money-back guarantee that their kids will score more marks as compared to their past performance, if they and attend regularly and work conscientiously. And once the studying is done, kids have enough free time to play games and explore their own personal interests on their own PC in the pod, so they aren’t restricted to only learning what the curriculum restricts them to !
In a world where traditional classroom education has become insufficient and outdated, ApniPathshala offers a unique and personalized learning experience that can help students improve their marks . By incorporating the flipped classroom model, doubt-solving sessions, and exam preparation, students can get a deeper understanding of the subject matter, clear their doubts, and prepare for exams more effectively.
