He also added that we are adding plethora of programmes and activities for young learners who will be able to recognise and build their strengths and abilities on this platform.
When children get involved in activities that they love doing, there are naturally recurring patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviour associated to it. These can be productively used and applied to real life situations. For example a very good drawing skills are base for dentist or surgeon. Similarly, interest in craft at a young age may lead to fashion design or interior decorating as a talent later in the teen years of the child.
NCERT focus had been on Competency based education model and map it with learning outcomes. Incredible Kids of India.com has taken one step further in creating portfolios, which shall felicitate teachers/parents to assess the progress in students learning and recognising every kid in the country.
Skills, as they say, are necessary to learn but still there is a plenty of room left for interests to grow into passions. "Let's give children time to pursue a variety of things that come from within their heart", said ManbirBedi. He also added that this torch shall move to all the schools to create massive awareness of the importance of portfolios.
Theplatform further provides access to activity wall, which is age specific and gives access to various competitions throughout the year. Mr. Manbir Bedi added that they would have two grand functions in a year where kids shall befelicitated that excel in sports, academics and extra curricular activities. Today, around 20 kids were given gold and silver medals in different fields.
Incredible Kids of India also plans to work closely with NGO's, social workers and corporates engaged in overall development of schools in far flung corners of the country. ManbirBedi, believes in bringing inclusivity for all the school going kids who recently got enabled on digital access during Covid times. The expressions of growing kids have gone unnoticed during the lock down and the platform of Incredible Kids of India will attempt to bridge the deficit of mapping the talent at an appropriate time and age.
