Wings of Evolution

Wings of EvolutionWings of Evolution is a film which revolves around the revolutionary educational system of Siragu Montessori School, a school for homeless and underprivileged children, located in the remote outskirts of Chennai in Tamil Nadu, India.

For a long time, the focus of education in India has been one of compulsive learning procedures, rote learning and examination-based evaluation with no emphasis on children's understanding of concepts, critical thinking and implications in real life.

Siragu Montessori School, in spite of limited resources and unimaginable obstacles has maintained a quality program, free for those who attend.

Moreover, the Documentary film also focuses on bringing together children from around the world, through a world-wide postcard sharing workshop where children from around the world share thoughts, exchange ideas and promote cultural diversity, global peace and understanding towards building a better tomorrow.

    A Lovely film, thank you.
    @ skipper There is a great deal of info available on the web. Called the 'Montessori Method', this method of teaching is Not Trade marked, so is Open to the world, and the Montessori Foundation offers help Internationally to anyone who wants to start a school using these methods. (Just search or google those terms). To add, there are many Montessori schools (most are pre schools) in Canada, but because anyone can use the method, there is a wide range of 'quality'. RE: For even more Free Learning experiences I recommend the online school at the Khan Academy (just search the name); anyone can enroll for free, and they offer Math and Science courses from First level to University level, and are currently working on translating their on line free courses into many languages. Generosity Lives!
