● Facilitator driven group sessions
● Collaborative Activities
● Minor and Major Projects
● Open Forums
● Mentoring

Classes will be held in a group of 6-8 children, twice a week.

Pedagogy

At MakeShift, we believe in activity-based, project-based and experiential learning pedagogy. Our facilitators are experts in learner-centered pedagogies.

A typical class or workshop at MakeShift, contains an introductory activity, a deep experience activity, break-out rooms and peer reflection, feedback and a small homework activity. It helps children to get introduced to new concepts in a fun way, work in teams for small activities, thoroughly understand concepts through experiential activities and homework tasks. With peer reflection and feedback, they appreciate each other’s efforts and give constructive feedback for improvement. This part helps them to take feedback positively and develop a habit of reflection.

Shift School - A Holistic Curriculum for Creative Geniuses

Shift school curriculum consists of twice a week facilitator-led sessions.

Total no. of facilitator-led Sessions: 100
Complementary Sessions: 20

Complimentary Sessions include Guest lectures, mentoring/ counselling sessions, open forums and virtual field visits.

A physical camp, common to all, will be organised towards the end of the 3rd module depending on the situation at that time.

The Shift school will be conducted under 2 different tracks; both are divided into 4 different modules.

Creative Leadership Track

The Creative Leadership track is designed for children having artistic or creative orientation (although not a prerequisite). This track helps children to advance their reading, writing, observation and research skills. Children acquire knowledge here for writing for publications, finding their voice as a creative person, creating their presence in the digital world, gaining insights on media, liberal arts, using their creative skills for solving larger problems in the world with a launchpad for venturing out in the creative space.

Creative Leadership Track

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship track is designed for the children who wish to take up on the larger problems in the society and work towards making the world a better place. This program helps children to develop creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills which are the most important for inculcating innovation and entrepreneurship mindset in them. They develop research, design and technology skills (depending on their project requirements) which will lead them to take up entrepreneurship as their path with a launchpad for venturing out.
