At our school, we believe in fostering independent learners through the use of dynamic teaching techniques and expert facilitation. This approach allows our students to extend their learning beyond the standard curriculum and receive honours on both national and international platforms.
Learning has to be fun and valuable. SOS is one of the top tier schools that combines outstanding teaching with technology that differentiates and targets instruction to the needs of each student.
Google Classroom is the chosen Learning Management System (LMS) for SOS, providing a platform for blended, personalized, and differentiated learning that emphasizes curiosity and self-directed learning. Educators at SOS have utilized this technology in unique ways, such as conducting doubt-clearing sessions, achievers classrooms, and self-paced learning modules.
At SOS, critical thinking is an essential element for academic and professional growth. The course curriculum utilizes the CRAFT (critical reading, analysis, and fact-checking) scientific approach, which features engaging activities and experiments to encourage critical thinking in and out of the classroom.
At SOS, students are encouraged to pursue a holistic approach to learning, gaining a deeper comprehension of concepts through cross-disciplinary assignments that utilize research and technology. This approach emphasizes critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills, including reading, writing, speaking, listening, and presentation skills, to provide students with a comprehensive learning experience.
At SOS, students engage in lab work that involves conducting experiments to develop their science knowledge and understanding, scientific reasoning abilities, and practical skills. They also develop a scientific attitude through activities that foster a sense of curiosity and wonder.
SOS practices the flipped classroom approach, where students watch pre-recorded video lectures or read materials before class, and class time is focused on interactive discussions and problem-solving activities. This approach allows students to delve deeper into the subject matter, collaborate with peers, and receive personalized instruction from teachers.
In Vidarbha, SOS has taken the lead in integrating computational thinking (CT) into their Math and ICT curriculum through the adoption of the CS Pathshala program since 2018. Unplugged activities such as puzzles, games, coding, and the Tower of Hanoi foster problem-solving, reasoning, analytical thinking, critical thinking, and ideation skills in students in an entertaining way. Furthermore, SOS students receive positions on the Wall of Fame for their remarkable performance in the Bebras Challenge - Problem Solving Challenge.
