Innovation-based learning: empowering style

Kurukshetra | Geeta Niketan Residential (Aawashiye) School inspires students for self-exploration by providing a structured environment based on innovation and experimentation. Bharatiya education system: The knowledge acquired through training mediums has special importance in the cognitive development of the trainee throughout his life. According to Bharatiya educationists, knowledge generated through the senses is practical and based on experience. In the Gurukul education system, emphasis was given to action-based and experience-based teaching methods to teach the art of living to the child. Even in the Vedas and Upanishads, the main objective of education is to make the child useful in life so that he can discharge his responsibilities towards himself, his family, and society well.

According to Rigveda, education is the means by which the student knows and understands his internal and external aspects. The objective of the schools run by Vidya Bharati is to end the traditional, teacher-centric, and rote-based education system and create a model of Bharatiya education through a child-centric activity-based education system. We believe that academic excellence can only be achieved by developing qualities like self-confidence, honesty, cooperation, and kindness in students. The objective of the policies and schemes made by Vidya Bharati is to develop the personality of the students, which helps in developing personality traits like character traits, understanding of group work, connection with society, leadership ability, and sensitivity towards humans and the environment. To fulfill this objective, Geeta Niketan Residential School provides a structured environment based on innovation and experimentation to the students and inspires them to explore themselves.
