Life Skills

Why is SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) Important today ?

The world is changing faster and faster and Technology is penetrating everyday life in a big way. Education systems are keen to accommodate changes – so more and more content is getting added to curriculum, while little is being removed. There is pressure to teach more, earlier, faster – while the available time is the same. The changes are not always predictable and are often complex in their scope and impact – and children need to learn how to deal with this change effectively. So, there is a need to prepare children to face a future that is always changing with greater speed.

Prepmyskills addresses all of these needs through Skills4Life

Skills4Life builds Curiosity, Character & Confidence in children with its structured curriculum encompassing Life Skills, Moral Science, Sensitive Topics and Personality Development.

How Does SKILLS4LIFE Help CM International Students

Students of CM International gain awareness and understanding of various subjects through the interactive and specially designed online learning platform created by Prepmyskills. The important topics enumerated by the board are included in the learning content. This platform provides an opportunity to the students to learn the basic concepts and apply them in various activities and scenarios. The engagement of the student with activities and scenarios ensures reinforcement of the critical concepts and skills.

Students can login and do a self-study at pace and intervals convenient to them and hence, providing for absorption of the content at a personal level. The activities and situations provide for ongoing improvisation and hence, the students have the opportunity to improve their understanding. The interaction in school reinforces the concepts through experiential learning.

The engagement of the students with various activities and situations are provided as evidences in the Student report. An assessment conducted at the end of the term provides an objective validation leading to his/her grades. Based on the performance of the student in the assessment, the report enumerates performance of the student in relation to the different descriptors.

While the solution enables students to go through an interesting and Impactful learning, it also provides objective reporting based on the performance of the students. Badges, Certificates of excellence and acknowledgement of achievements on the school portal are a few ways we motivate students. Special assemblies are held from time to time to recognize the efforts of students and reward them.
