Being Curious is no more a born-talent!

Intellectual Curiosity Enhancement Culture (ICEC) is a comprehensive, hyper-customized-personalized, academically integrated and NEP-2020 based solution, that aims at solving one major issue, almost all schools are suffering -

"Irregular activation of Intellectual Curiosity of the students through out the academic year"

Through which, the school can break the barrier of 'Natural Inquisitiveness Decay (NID)' of all the students and save them from its negative consequences -

Why ICEC

Know the reasons that backups this master solution

Most of the students are just learning without pursuing the real purpose of education, with suffering from eight major cognitive issues, which hinders the possibilities of exploring their fullest potential. It just limit their prosperity in academics, personal and professional well-being. And as the nucleus of the country, each and every student deserves something better to be equipped with all the abilities, so that they can contribute in the process and progress of 21st century India.

Epistemic Curiosity Deficit
(ECD)

Most of the students has lesser interest to know something new and apply that knowledge into higher degree thinking and betterment of society.

Incomplete Learning Syndrome
(ILS)

Most of the students are acquiring information, without truly understanding it or being able to apply it in different contexts. It leads to incomplete purpose of education.

Uncritical Thinking Stigma
(UTS-I)

Most of the students are suffering from the over-flood of information around them. They are just unable to avoid uncritical thoughts in academics, personal and professional life.

Uncreative Thinking Stigma
(UTS-II)

Most of the students are suffering from the monotonicity of ideas. They are seldom open to new ideas, ways and strategies to experiment and go with uncertainity.

In this information-age, it's really critical to assess, compare, analyze and evaluate information and utilize it for the betterment of self, society and nation as a whole.

Ineffective Decision Making
(IDM)

Due to various cognitive inertia, most of the students are unable to take better-informed decisions that leads to a better academic, personal and professional well-being.

Lower Scientific Tempermant

IMTF Illiteracy

Due to lack of inquisitiveness and trapped with its negative consequence, students has very poor literacy skills w.r.t information, media, technology and finance, which are the backbone of this century.

How ICEC Works

Know how ICEC solves this major issue - NID

This program solves one of the major cognitive barriers - 'Natural Inquisitiveness Decay' for students in their path of learning. And helps them to enrich their true potential through better rational mindset. As we know inside a classroom, few students ask questions; others are not. It's very hard to see the mass active engagements in a class. And it's due to so many classroom cultural Inertia. Lack of the culture of enhancing curiosity of the students is one of them.

The other side of story is though some schools succeed at igniting curiosity of the students, through better teaching methodologies; but it's quite become hard to establish and sustain it through out the academic year. So a consistent habit forming culture is the need of the hour to enhance the intellectual curiosity of the students; because other goals of 21st-century learning will become just a by-product of it for students.

NEP-2020 also suggests to build an interactive and fun classrooms, where questions are encouraged, with creative, collaborative, and exploratory activities for deeper and more experiential learning. So learning will thus move away from rote memorization; if and when rote learning is used, it will always be pre-accompanied by context and motivation, and post-accompanied by analysis, discuss and applications.

Therefore, to reorient the entire school education curriculum; we first need to germinate the cognitive freedom inside the classroom, backed by a strong culture, where students will feel safe and secure to learn and achieve all the learning goals. To inculcate scientific temper in the school culture and encouraging both the teachers and students to enjoy their respective roles of learning, purposefully, we have developed a 10-pilar based strategic solution - Intellectual Curiosity Enhancement Culture (ICEC), that will provide a year-long support mechanism to boost the scientific temperament by enhancing their intellectual curiosity.

The school is treated as the temple of knowledge and wisdom for a child. This is the place where we expect to nurture the most important assets of our country - children. By providing a kind of holistic environment, we want to grow them up to their fullest potential and prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, technologies that have not yet invented, and problems that we don't yet know will arise. And for that we just need to make them life-long active and efficient learner, who stays curious all time, in all contexts related to their growth.
