From agricultural to industrial age and now to information age, history shows that how technology impact the way we travel, communicate, work and live. Now in 21st century, technological advancements are rapidly disrupting industries and there is a shift in skill requirement by employers in global job market. Be it IT, energy, transportation, telecom, healthcare, education or retail sector, nature of jobs are becoming largely autonomous with new trends like online shopping, robotic assembling, driverless cars. This shows that the upcoming jobs will look for analyses, creativity and innovation as top skills in a human resource. But contrary to that our school education system is still about focusing more on delivering information and less about skills.
Technoplanet started in 2015 with a team of engineers and educators developing new age tools, technologies and content, for classroom and self-learning, with an ultimate objective of revolutionizing education for the needs of 21st century.
Technoskills is a project based learning curriculum which provides a child an opportunity to experience and apply STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) concepts while building projects from various fields like electronics, robotics, programming, mechanics, aeromodelling, wood working, architecture and audio visual art. Technoskills encourages development of design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, problem solving and collaborative attitude among students. Implemented in a specially designed lab facility in a school Technoskills has following attributes.
A technology driven festival for kids to experience peer group innovations and share their enthusiasm for STEM. It creates a platform for kids to work on various technologies with friends, parents and teachers to develop and showcase solution for problem their care about. The festival features many exciting challenges, exhibitions and activity camps in student participate to learn building new things and share what they have built.
