German-Indian Classroom : Envisioning School

A Joint Project by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and Max Mueller Bhavan (MMB) New Delhi

About the Project

German-Indian Classroom is a program supporting collaboration between Indian and German schools. The program constitutes project work carried out over a period of one year with two integrated exchange phases. Under its aegis, Bal Bharati, Ganga Ram and Genoveva Gymnasium, Germany have been working collaboratively for a year on a joint curriculum plan titled 'Envisioning School : What learning is like in India and Germany - and what it could be'.

Implementation of the project consists of working on mutually agreed subthemes and sharing the outcomes on fortnightly basis. The collaboration is executed through bi-weekly discussions and evaluation of work results via Skype, email, social networks etc. and uploading it on a common portal called Pasch Net. Students explored the education system by working on different aspects like teaching-learning methodology, time table, curricula etc. in their own as well as partner country. In addition to gaining in-depth knowledge of the project's subject, regular contact has helped the partners to form lasting relationships and increase their knowledge of the other country.

The virtual collaboration was further strengthened with the visit of a 13 member German delegation in November 2014 subsequently followed by visit of Indian delegation to Germany in May 2015. The visits provided opportunities, not only to work on the project but also to learn and appreciate the education system, religion and social cultural milieu of the partner country.
