GEAR Enrichment

GEAR has partnered with several organisations to help enrich the learning experience of all the GEAR cubs. These programs do not replace the regular curriculum and methods of teaching, but they act as an enhancement to what is being taught.

 

BiBox (Grade 5-11): Based on 21st Century Learning, the Lab has an all-round approach, promoting Design Thinking and Challenge based Learning. It nurtures and delivers a practical exposure and sustained excitement in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM). BiBox brings together technology, creative content and delivery mechanisms for students to put together their ideas into actions. It nurtures students and gives a comprehensive, practical exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths.

 

Mindspark (Grade 5 to Grade 9): Mindspark is a cloud based platform that aids in the study of mathematics by self learning with a curriculum integrated database. It  helps the Cubs improve his/her skills in Maths. It allows each student to follow a learning path that is based on their needs.

 

iPad Lab (Grade 2- Grade 5): Tabtor Math combines smart technology with the personalized attention of a dedicated tutor for grades 2-5. It is an App that provides unlimited digital worksheets tailored specifically to each student’s needs. It includes revolutionary “digital paper technology” that allows tutors to observe every pen and key stroke as your child solves each math equation. Children go to the iPad lab to learn math through this App.

 

Educomp (Grade 5-12): The classrooms are equipped with Smartboards, so these Smartclasses have access to a large and extensive database of digital content. The teachers have access to an exhaustive repository of digital modules which they can integrate into their lesson plans when needed, while at the same time they also have the option of using the traditional chalkboard.

 

SAPA Music Academy (M2 – Grade 10): The Subramaniam Academy of Performing Arts (SAPA) has developed a special syllabus to teach Indian classical music as part of curriculum in schools from Montessori (age 3) to Standard X. Indian classical music  is one of the oldest and most systematic styles of music, and can be used as a base for learning and understanding almost every style of music around the world. The Syllabus also provides a Global Music component which exposes children to different styles of music from around the world including Western Classical music, African music, Flamenco and Jazz.
