I am so glad the facilitator was from an educational background with vast experience. So she gave more practical knowledge and I could believe when she said what works and what does not.
Professional Development- Teacher Education Workshop: BTTC, Mumbai
Teacher Education Workshop: Indus Valley Public School, Noida
After the workshop on Learning Stations by KA, I conducted the same in my class. Children really enjoyed those activities and had a nice time. I personally felt great as having worked with an international school previously, I was quite familiar with circle time and learning stations, but attending this workshop showed just how simple it was to execute these pedagogies within the classroom. I was feeling that activity based learning is something we must commence in my school, but with the introduction of learning stations, that gap is being bridged.
Chairperson, Holy Child School, Panchkula
The Professional Development Workshop conducted by KA EduAssociates at Holy Child School , Panchkula on Friday, 21st October, 2016 was a great success! This activity- based workshop was attended by heads of 13 schools , accompanied by their team of teachers . Team KA was able to introduce all the participants to ” Inquiry based Learning ” and involve them in the paradigm shift from ‘Teaching’ to ‘Learning’ . The session on ‘Thematic Learning’ was interesting and innovative . All the participants walked away feeling empowered with various new strategies that could easily be implemented in classrooms. Wishing you and your team all the very best for your future endeavours!

It was fun learning something new at this stage of my life when I had absolutely forgotten what it means to be a student…feels like being back at school..taking down notes etc. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience. And this proves our ideology of creating learners…once a learner always a learner. Age no bar!
Principal, Nahar International School, Mumbai
“Today, there is a constant need for teachers to upgrade themselves and evolve as they engage with students who are overloaded with knowledge and information. This calls for a regular professional development for them from experienced and knowledgeable experts. NIS’s search for such experts came to an end after meetingthe team at KA. Their highly experienced facilitators conducted training for our teachers as well as the mid-level leadership team . ALL our teachers and leaders not only learnt an array of strategies from the facilitators but also enjoyed the whole process of learning with the m. KA team is doing an amazing job by delivering such hands-on and highly interactive training modules. I wish them all the best for their future endeavours .”
I always wanted to learn from the best and who better than KA EduAssociates. The online modules are very simple to understand that can be implemented at the same time! Their modules are well-researched and I have thoroughly enjoyed every bit of them. Thank you for teaching me a different way to teach.
Director, Casa Vista Montessori Montessori PreSchool, Mumbai
“Casa Vista Montessori joined hands with KA EduAssociates in 2017. Through this journey we have had many enriching workshops for parents and children. The sessions executed by KA have always been extremely engaging, fun and have an experiential approach. KA always curates workshops for Casa Vista Montessori that takes care of the individual needs of our parents/children and caters to topics of absolute relevance. The other noteworthy aspect about their workshops are that they provide participants with a set of skills and strategies that they can take back with them to apply to real life. From the very start, KA Edu has been competent, well-informed and has a professional group of experts who have been able to show endurance and thoughtfulness with our specific needs. I most certainly recommend KA EduAssociates to anyone that requires any kind of Educational Management Services.”

“Curriculum is a tool in the hand of the artist (Teacher), to mould his materials (Students), according to his ideals (aim and objectives) in his studio (Classroom).. Team KA brings this quote alive by empowering the schools with a curriculum which prepares the teachers and the children for the ever-changing world. Whatever be the recommended curriculum that is derived from experts in the field be it NCERT, IGCSE, IB .The written curriculum is the one usually created by team KA to bring the recommendations to life with effective support of an activity based execution combined with complimentary instructional materials available, such as textbooks, software, and multimedia resources. The highlight of their skills is in the learned curriculum which is the bottom-line curriculum—what students learn. Clearly it is the most important of all combined with The hidden curriculum (a term coined by Jackson, 1968) is the unintended curriculum-what students learn from the flow of the plan which includes life skills and core values that governs the vison of the school… Team KA crafts the curriculum that meets the needs of the 21st century teachers and learners.”
