"Sa Vidya ya vimuktaye," - that which is true knowledge, liberates
Vidya implies "right knowledge" or clarity. It develops a person's faculties, especially his mind so that he may be able to enjoy the contemplation of supreme truth, goodness and beauty (satyam, shivam, sundaram) the ingredients of perfect bliss (paramanand). The opposite of vidya is avidya that is, ignorance or misinformation. To attain knowledge, we need to educate ourselves. Over the last decades, the meaning of giftedness has evolved from being an inherent global ability to potential giftedness, and capacities found during the developmental stages. Howard Gardner's 'Theory of Multiple Intelligences' has added new perspectives. The latest thought employs the idea that each individual possesses some gift which can be drawn out in a nurturant environment. Col Satsangi's Kiran Memorial Public School has been a fertile ground for action research and innovative methods for effective development of the latent gifts of all children. All children possess above normal capacity in one or many facets of their individuality. As teachers we need to harness this potential. In many cases the parents and teachers do not even recognize the gift their children may possess. Most of these children function well within the basic expectations in a classroom. How much they can accomplish remains undiscovered. The role of an awakened teacher is to assist each child to discover their untapped potential and actualize their innate ability. Ability is evenly distributed in the population while achievement is not. An inclusive approach is required in schools so that all children have freedom to explore and discover possibilities. CSKM offers a flexible strategy encompassing various interventions to cater to needs of all kinds of learners.
CSKM looks at identifying and nurturing a growing pool of gifted students. Provision for them is made in terms of their promise and ability and not past achievement. Giftedness is multi dimensional, contextually and culturally sensitive, manifest in multiple ways, more amenable to assessment than identification. It needs emphasis on continuous and long term assessment and is based on a philosophy of inclusiveness requiring collaborative partnerships. CSKM converts underachieving learners to self confident achievers. Children are nurtured to develop the ability to solve problems, innovate and create. Situations that use task commitment, creativity, practical and analytical thinking to solve actual or simulated real world problems are devised as learning opportunities in the environment.
CSKM aims to pave the way for each child to become an exemplary human being, a leader, an entrepreneur one who respects others and works towards a world of peace, harmony and happiness for all.
