WHO ARE WE AND WHY ARE WE HERE?

We are a bunch of 40 or so folks who come from wildly different professional backgrounds, and what brought us together is our common belief that the development of skills should be a very important part of our education system, especially in a world where knowledge is readily available.

We believe that the quality of life of every individual (and thus, the quality of our country and its future) depends on their skills

WHAT ARE SKILLS?

While there are many kinds of skills, we follow the P21 skill listing. These are fundamental skills that enable people to make sense of the world, work productively with others, understand and solve problems and reach their fullest potential.

Thinking Skills: Analytical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Problem Solving, Design Thinking
Digital Skills: Digital Literacy, Information Fluency & Research
Life and Leadership Skills: Communication, Collaboration, Leadership, Adaptability, Risk Taking, Initiative, Global Perspectives, Integrity, Ethical Decision Making

HOW DO WE DEVELOP SKILLS IN STUDENTS?

We have written a skill-based, experiential and constructivist curriculum for Grades 1-10. We partner with schools across the country and train their teachers to deliver this curriculum.

When a school takes up our program, we set up a Learning Studio in the school, where each section comes once a week for the Creya class. We then train the teachers and support them as they deliver the program. Our training includes tool-based training, pedagogy training as well as classroom management training.

As students use our curriculum, they get the opportunity to work with various tools (Engineering, Film Making, Photo Editing, Robotics, Programming, etc.). Students always work in teams of 3, and always create a tangible output by the end of the class.
