Convergent & Divergent Thinking
Children will be encouraged to think outside the box in all aspects of their learning. Instead of only relying on convergent thinking strategies, which tend to produce right or wrong answers, schools will place just as much focus on divergent thinking strategies, which challenge students to find creative and unconventional solutions to any given problem or task. This process is essential for nurturing the creative faculties of each and every student and maximizing their innovative potential.
Science Beyond the Physical
Nikola Tesla once said, ‘The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.’ Science education will transcend the constraints of reductionist-materialism to explore the fascinating realm of quantum physics. Students will be exposed to new fields of research that go beyond conventional understandings of science.
Schools will focus on collaborating in the learning environment instead of pitting students against each other. Competition in the classroom will be abolished as it causes children to hold each other at arm’s length and to pursue success at the expense of another’s failure. Innovation is best realised when students pool their creative potential. Children who grow up through a collaborative education paradigm will be much more likely to foster a collaborative and community-driven society.
