Navigating The Future Of Generation Alpha
The world is changing and our education system needs to evolve with it. Dylan Wiliam, a famous British educationalist and Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment, states “the purpose of education should be to prepare students for a world we can’t envisage, so when they are stuck, they choose to think, instead of remember.”
DWPS understands this need of the hour, as never before, that education requires being Re-imagined by re-inventing, re-creating and re-enforcing all aspects of Education. “Our goal is to inspire our students to become life-long learners with a love of education.”
We believe in developing a holistic, learner centred, flexible system rightfully balances the rootedness and pride in India as well as acceptance of the best ideas and practices in the world of learning from across the globe.
Our team has researched extensively looking into various sources including studies of multiple Foreign scholars on didactics, textbooks on Pedagogy of the twentieth century, UNESCO recommendations on the development of teaching strategies
The school is elevated to plaud the efforts of our teaching fraternity who have brought innovation and creativity into the classroom.
