What is the success story of Pluskul?

Pluskul was born out of the work at IGenPlus, a K-12 school for culture and creativity. In a span of over two years, the IGenPlus team has conducted a wide array of online courses, webinars, contests, events, and experiences involving thousands of participants across the globe. The focus of all the programs is on nurturing skills and values that prepare children for life. Watch our journey here.

How do children imbibe and express Indian culture in a creative way?

Storytelling, engagement, and involvement in the process of learning helps students remain connected to the community and environment we live in. Activities, cultural events, mentorship, and creative competitions can be opportunities for creating responsible citizens who take away the lessons to play a contributing role in society. At Pluskul, every interactive program has an element of family education, community learning, and our civilisational heritage.

What caused the decline of the western education system?

The western education system is a result of the industrial revolution and colonial era where school was not a place of learning but an institution for serving the factories and the commonwealth. American educational psychologist Edward Thorndike’s theories on learning and behaviour looked at education as a tool for social adjustment and controlling human nature. These perspectives have witnessed a sharp decline in the 21st century as today, education focuses on knowledge enhancement, skill development, and holistic development of the child.

Which type of courses do you provide?

Our courses seek to develop YOGI, CREATIVE, and EXPONENTIAL skills in children through interactive discussions, activities, workshops, assessments, etc. You may read about our philosophy and pedagogy on the “About Us” section of our website.

Is the rise of K12 and EdTech a result of the pandemic?

While K12 and EdTech have been around for some years, these sectors received a boost when parents, teachers, and students turned to online learning during the pandemic. Online K12 schools offered personalised and high-quality education to help students reach their potential. There were opportunities to offer flexibility, fine-tune the curriculum, and connect with a wider community as compared to traditional brick and mortar schools. Going forward, the school education sector should embrace the best of both worlds.

What will be the impact of Pluskul on the child?
