Pedagogy
When a lesson is taught to a learner, it has a well -defined objective that should result in a well-defined action that a learner should be able to carry out. This action is the competency that a learner shall achieve. By identifying each such competency from the lessons taught, CoBELS makes the task easier by having definite and measurable learning outcomes. Competency Based Experiential Learning is a solution that transforms each of the competencies that a learner is expected to achieve into an activity or a game. CoBELs offers byte sized learning in packages that children like – games and activities. But the core comprises of translating competencies defined by the National Educational Curriculum and blending it with the right pedagogical methodologies before presenting it to the learners.

Financial literacy is an important life skill for the holistic development of every student. But the challenge has always been to make children understand the various financial concepts in a simple manner that’s easily understood. In addition to that, we also wanted children to relate these concepts to real life situations. Plus, we wanted to make finance fun! Keeping all these in mind, we designed this comprehensive, 19 level Financial literacy game that children will enjoy playing (err…learning).

Product #3: Mapoosa www.Mapoosa.com

An average child today spends a significant amount of time on the web – playing games. What if we, as parents, could use this time and means to effectively extend their learning time? This is the philosophy behind Mapoosa. Mapoosa is a social world where children learn through play, and parents have complete control and visibility into a child’s activities and progress. Mapoosa is an online school of sorts – It is ‘Virtual World’ where concepts taught in schools are ‘taught’ and reinforced through exploration, experience, games and a lot of fun. Children get to create their own avatar, meet other children from various parts of the world in a very safe environment, learn from each other and healthily compete to achieve various learning goals without the pressures associated with the traditional learning mechanisms. Mapoosa is presented to children as a long-lost island which, until recently, was not discovered by explorers. Hence, Mapoosa evolved and developed very differently from the rest of the world. Mapoosa has an old world charm, is inhabited by good natured people, and the daily life in Mapoosa can be described as simply as “controlled chaos” – which enhances the fun element.
