SmartCamp is Sai’s Angel Foundation’s after school enrichment programme offering a diverse selection of classes.
India has the world’s largest population of youngsters. In order to capitalise on the potential of this demographic advantage and usher in an era of growth and inclusive development, this generation must be equipped with the knowledge and skill necessary to unleash their full potential.
The fast paced world of 21st century requires every child to be a global citizen – who has to be confident, bold, goal oriented and sensitive to their environment and above all co-creators of their own destiny.
Education is the apprenticeship of life; a realisation of a dream.
The objective of SmartCamp is to provide value based education with innovative ideas so that the pupils grow aesthetically rich and intellectually aware. SmartCamp would include:
Homework Assistance – Supervision of the homework and assignments given to the children in school. Teachers would act as facilitators in their work and clearing of doubts.
Enhancing Life Skills and Value based education
Whats different about this program?
Sai's Angel will bring a well researched approach to teaching and understanding the concepts, which includes taking the best of the approaches arrived at after looking at several Educational sources, talking to Indian and US academicians, studying the new US Common Core Standards for Maths, and best practices in India's leading schools.
While the details of the smartcamp are in final stages of finalisation, we endeavour to bring modern concepts like the Flipped Classroom, smartphones/ tablet/computer based learning methods and games into the classroom.
A combination of a modified "Flipped Classroom" approach that leverages the hours and hours of open source quality teaching video lectures available, or created new from smartcamp's own offering, translated, where necessary and possible to the local needs, technology and one on one support assistance model ensures complete coverage for each child.
We desire to weave the message of values and responsibility as part of our curriculum and not as a separate standalone offering. Finally, we expect our students to give back in kind through acts of selfless service and kindness.
