Satish Misal Educational Foundation’saim is to work towards improving the quality of education in India. Even though the world has radically changed in the last two centuries, the way children learn in our schools and colleges remains static. Most of it revolves around the industrial age. A lot of education is organized like an assembly line – including the classrooms, bells, one-directional knowledge transfer, and age-group specific learning. However, at SMEF, we want to challenge these outdated learning models by introducing modern teaching techniques for students in various creative sectors.
We’re embracing a forward-thinking educational system wherein individual knowledge and talent is nurtured and celebrated.
We’re also addressing the changed roles of teachers as not just knowledge givers, but more importantly, as guides to young minds.Together, we want to re-imagine education, promote creative talent and build a future where every innovative mind and smart thinker is given an equal opportunity to grow and develop.
At SMEF, we strongly believe that knowledge is power. It has the strength to change the world, build better futures and contribute towards an equal, humane and sustainable society. An initiative of Ms. Pooja Misal, with the strong support of Smt. Madhuri Misal, the foundation aspires to create a long-term impact on the quality of education in India.
Envisioning a large-scale impact in the field of education, we need dynamic institutions like the Brick, where education, development and knowledge is generated at multiple levels. To bring about a lasting change in the way students learn, we stimulate learning outside classrooms too, wherein our students learn from local community initiatives. We’re also re-visiting assessment techniques and standards to focus on the student’s journey, efforts, and progress. We’re building skills for the future workplace with intellectual learning so that our students can address the design challenges of the 21st century.
Education isn’t a privilege but a right that everyone deserves to own. At SMEF, we strive every day to make quality education accessible to every aspiring student so that he/she can contribute towards building a remarkable nation. SMEF is well-equipped to deliver the most innovative methods of teaching, learning, ideation, research, and solutions for a better tomorrow.
