Through the use of dynamic teaching techniques and expert facilitation, our school cultivates independent learners who consistently exceed the expectations of the core curriculum and achieve recognition at national and international levels.
"At SOS, students can experience blended learning by accessing interactive online content, participating in classroom discussions, and receiving teacher-led instruction, all while enhancing their digital literacy and self-directed learning skills."
As the Learning Management System (LMS) for SOS, Google Classroom facilitates blended, personalized, and differentiated learning that promotes curiosity and self-directed learning. Educators at SOS have utilized this platform creatively, including through conducting doubt-clearing sessions, achievers classrooms, and self-paced learning activities.
Critical thinking is a prerequisite for achieving academic and professional success. The course curriculum at SOS employs the scientific approach of CRAFT (critical reading, analysis, and fact-checking), which incorporates stimulating activities and experiments to promote critical thinking within and beyond the classroom.
"SOS supports students in their pursuit of a comprehensive education, offering cross-disciplinary assignments that leverage research and technology to deepen their understanding of concepts. This approach emphasizes critical analysis, problem-solving, and communication skills, including reading, writing, speaking, listening, and presentation skills, to provide students with a well-rounded education."
"With SOS, students can explore science concepts through hands-on experiments that develop their science knowledge and understanding, scientific reasoning abilities, and practical skills. The lab work also fosters a scientific attitude by making science accessible and enjoyable."
SOS implements the flipped classroom approach, where students watch pre-recorded video lectures or read materials before class, and class time is dedicated to interactive discussions and problem-solving activities. This approach allows students to engage more deeply with the material, collaborate with their peers, and receive more personalized instruction from teachers.
"Since 2018, SOS has been incorporating the CS Pathshala curriculum in Math & ICT, making it the first school in Vidarbha to integrate CT. Students engage in unplugged activities such as puzzle-solving, sudoku, the Tower of Hanoi, and coding to foster problem-solving, analytical thinking, critical thinking, and ideation in a fun manner. Additionally, SOS recognizes students who participate in the Bebras Challenge by placing them on the Wall of Fame."
