About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Most of the schools in rural India lack quality infrastructure, teachers, teaching aids that have widened the existing gap in education. Teachers' quality is the key to ensuring quality education. As it involves a tremendous investment to renovate a quality school, we worked on a simple solution that focuses on developing the skills of the rural teachers through 'low cost or no cost resources'.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Skill Theatre is a strategic approach designed by an experienced, enthusiastic group of educators who aspires to offer inclusive skill development solutions to the community of students and teachers across the world.
SKILL THEATRE works as a skill development tool that promotes participation from the students and teachers fostering experiential learning. Our model works in accordance with Kolb’s experiential learning cycle incorporating the following principles: Experiential learning–Assessment–Learner-centered learning–Interactive Learning–Co-operative learning–Integrated learning–Social and Emotional well being–Technology based learning.
- We visit the schools in the rural community or connect with a remote school online
- We do a 'Needs Analysis' of every individual teacher/student considering various factors affecting their career/skills.
- We plan a structured profile based on their training needs
- We would agree on a tentative calendar and deliver training

How has it been spreading?

These experiential learning approaches were tried and tested with over 5000 students and school teachers across south India with a proven track record and played a major role in improving the 21st skills of the learners. Most of the learners whose skills were 40% at the time of needs analysis showed a 20% increase in their performance levels.
Our Mission:
To offer customized skill training solutions to students and teachers through creative, fun, and theatrical activities, as we strongly believe in the words “Tell me and I forget. Teach me, and I may remember. Involve me and I learn”-BENJAMIN FRANKLIN.
Our Vision:
Our Endeavour has been to develop experiential training courses for teachers and students to deliver any skill/subject in a precise, customizable, and cost-effective way.

Steps

History concept

Step 1- Choose a lesson in prior to the class

Step 2-Think of strategies and techniques to dramatize a particular concept

Eg- If the concept is a historical place ask students to prepare for a t.v show in groups (like in discovery or national geographic channels).

Step 3- Give them 5-10 mins for preparation and let every group showcase their performances 

Step 4- Ask students to add the details of that particular place in their scripts

Step 5- Appreciate their performances and provide feedback

We teach the techniques and strategies for dramatization and preparation of learning resources and costumes from scratches to make the classes more lively.
