We see a world where every
child learns by thinking.
Children are natural thinkers. They are curious and ask many questions.
And then they get busy learning definitions and formulae. They are rewarded with marks and grades if they remember the information provided by the teacher or the book.
What a fabulous system of making extraordinary thinkers into ordinary thinkers!
Open Door is saying that enough is enough. And that is why we have designed programs with beautiful questions at its core. Open Door offers two programs - Mastery Assessments and Thinking Classroom - to schools and two programs - Unbox and Thinksheets - to individual parents.
Open Door began in 2013. The founders realized early on that the school system focused on exams and marks but had limitations in providing in-depth mastery of a concept. In other words, children were scoring marks but the learning was pointless because no one was really understanding a concept.
We kept the name of the initiative ‘Open Door’ because we wanted to make children think and question.
Open Door programs are designed by a team of young graduates from some of the finest universities - such as the IITs and NITs - in India. The team is a group of thinkers who live and breathe science and math. When they look around themselves, they do not see a table, a wall or a book. They see science and math.
Over the last 7 years, Open Door team has been working to increase the thinking in many classrooms. The questions designed by the team are currently making 150000+ students think more than before.
Open Door offers 'Mastery Assessments' and 'Thinking Classroom' programs to schools. Mastery Assessments is a series of thought-provoking assessments followed by immediate feedback. Thinking Classroom is a set of workbooks of questions that make children think and help teachers speak less while teaching.
Our programs are offered for Science and Mathematics.
Mastery Assessments is offered from grades 3 - 10. Thinking Classroom is offered from grades 6 - 8.
