At the heart of DLRC is a vision of a space blooming with excitement and enthusiasm of people from all age groups, participating / engaging in several opportunities to learn, enrich and grow. A space where a community bonds together by sharing knowledge, skills, thoughts and ideas. A space buzzing with exploration, experimentations and creation that value nature and its every creation big and small. A space where experiences of the head, heart and hands are extended to others who have embarked on the lifelong journey of learning and doing. 


DriveChange Learning and Resource lives up to its name by being a resource platform for extended learning beyond classroom hours. We are slowly and mindfully curating programs that add value and provide diversity of thoughts, ideas and actions.  

 

We are launching the following programs in February/March 2022:

After School Care 

DLRC is happy to offer to the parent community a much needed facility to ensure the children are in a safe space while the parents are at work or are busy with commitments. The DLRC After School Care Facility where children can stay back in the campus during post school hours and rest, play, eat, read, complete their homework, explore, experiment and learn in a beautiful space surrounded by nature.

Library Membership 

"Library is an arena of possibilities, opening a window into the soul and a door to onto the world" - Rita Dove

Our DLRC library with over 8,000 books aims at nurturing a reading habit among children. It is a space where children will not only issue books to read, but will get an opportunity to participate in a plethora of activities - book conversations, book launches, reading programs, art of writing and many more.

Self Directed Learning

An immersive 3 week program for middle school (grades 6-8) students. This immersive program is all about students designing and executing a project of their choice, with a mentor. The mentor will meet the students regularly, to provide guidance and be a brainstorming buddy. The project will culminate on 31st March with presentations.   

 

Self-directed learning is a process where individuals take primary charge of planning, continuing and evaluating their learning experiences. In self-directed learning, the responsibility to learn shifts from an external source (teacher, etc.) to the individual.

Self Directed Learning Project Areas:

  • skill development (related to any field - performing arts, art and craft, sports etc.)

  • inquiry into something you are curious about - this could be an inquiry into the self or could be inquiry into something about the world around us. 

  • developing your knowledge on certain topics that interest you - here you want to gain more in depth knowledge, understand various perspectives or historical approaches.

  • An innovation/creation (could be a toy, a machine, a tool, computer app) 

  • Skills of planning, creating inquiry questions, researching, creating a project report, and presentations skills will be developed intentionally in groups. 

  • An example of SDL project by DLRC student
