The XSEED 5-step experiential learning approach was designed in 2008 after over five years of research by alumni from Harvard, Cambridge, MIT and IIM Ahmedabad. The Xseed education approach especially developed to align with existing international standards and syllabus of various boards, including the CBSE and ICSE education boards of India. In the classroom, XSEED replaces the one-step telling approach with a multi-step learning process since children learn best by action, followed by reflection and feedback.
XSEED teachers begin the class by clearly stating the learning goal, ask children what they know already, demonstrate an experiment or conduct a group activity, let children speak before they do, ensure the “application questions” are done independently, fiercely believe in practice, access daily, and support each child individually.
