The primary school teachers used a ‘joyous’ learning model in Mysore, with the help of Rishi Valley School to improve its education system.

The Rishi Valley rural schools in Karnataka used the Nali-Kali approach to transform the education system in to a joyous learning. It worked upon a new model of classroom management system in which chidren’s groups were inclusive and organized. The Teachers replaced the conventional notions of order and discipline into more participatory and interactive sessions in classroom activities.

Initially the textbooks dominated the school curriculum; and children were dependent on the teachers. In contrast, the Nali-Kali approach adopted a non-threatening, continual and child-by-child evaluation so that each child achieves the mastery level learning. The new curriculum infused self-confidence, self-esteem and sense of security in the child. Overall, it created an atmosphere that is informal, non-heirarchical and friendly for the students.
