Korroboree online school came into existence to give learners active, relevant learning experiences. Korroboree uses Dreamtime Learning System which is designed to place learners in an environment to help them naturally discover their true passion and to love learning. The online school is built around developing cognitive and emotional literacy which includes building competencies such as critical thinking, self-regulation, and conceptual understanding. Learners will also develop future skills like public speaking, contrarian thinking and storytelling.
Korroboree online school is our response to the 4th Industrial Revolution.
We can see that technology has accelerated the rate at which things around us are changing, with this continuous uncertainty we at Korroboree wanted to build a curriculum that will prepare learners to deal with a dynamically changing environment.
At Korroboree we believe in keeping the quest of questioning alive and as we began to ask questions from a learners perspective we realised that a lot needs to change and a learning environment where learners see learning as an adventurous quest was created.
Our technology-supported pedagogy is innovative, and grounded in research, of how a learner best learns, interacts, and thinks of ideas. The focus is on learners creating something new from what has been actively learned. The best theories in what leads to deep learning and innovative thinking underpins our methodology.
The learning framework also develops thinking habits and skills that excite learners to become everything they are capable of becoming.
Our Readers are designed to create intrigue in the learner and make learning fun and interesting where each learner learns according to their individual interest, talent and skills.
We have also partnered with like-minded companies like Mindbox (coding, design and animation) as well as Dreamshapers (project based learning tool).
WE ARE POWERED BY THE DREAMTIME DIGITAL LEARNING SYSTEM.
Korroboree online school uses Dreamtime learning design, which encourages the learner to learn, and naturally discover their true passion.
We believe that learner outcome is dependent on the instructional input, a trained learning coach and great digital infrastructure. The learning framework also develops thinking habits and skills that excite learners to become everything they are capable of becoming.

We are proposing to apply to the Cambridge/ Pearson Qualifications to offer globally recognised International GCSE (IGCSE) and International A Level qualification to learners aged 14-18.
Foundation Year 1 and 2 (JKG and SKG) learners will log in for 2 hours from 9 am to 11 am
Grades 1 and 2 learners will log in for 3.5 hours from 8 am to 11:40 am
Grades 3 and 4 learners will log in for 4.5 hours from 8 am to 12:20 pm
All conceptual understanding, practice and creativity will be done during class sessions. No homework will be scheduled although learners that are curious and want to explore more about what they discussed in class may do so.
Each batch will consist of no more than 24 learners
The school will start on 3rd May 2022
There is no uniform to be purchased. We ask all learners to wear a white t-shirt and blue jeans.
Our LMS platform is designed to make our curriculum interactive and experiential for the learner, parent and learning coach.
Our learners will discover innovative ways to engage with the help of the LMS. the LMS facilitates full inclusion and equitable access for all learners, it also helps us improve communication between parents and our learning coaches.
Our LMS will allow the learning coach and parents to see the child’s progress. The learning coach will be able to review, approve, and provide feedback on the learner’s work on a real-time basis and share the same with parents in one click.
The parent dashboard will give you access to an aggregated view of your child's work, that will in turn help you support your child in exploring areas of deep interest. Regular posts from course activity feeds will make it easy for you to keep a tab on what’s going on in school.
A Tablet or a Laptop with the following specifications: OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only), Processor: Intel Core i5-2400s @ 2.5 GHz or AMD FX-6100 @ 3.3 GHz or equivalent, Memory: 8 GB RAM, Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD HD 7870 (2GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
A stable internet connection minimum speed of 10 Mbps.
All sessions will be recorded and available for use on request. In case a learner misses a class we will coordinate to allocate a session to cover the same (practice and expansion). We have support sessions included in the timetable.
Learners will interact with successful people from all walks of life including those that have found meaning and success through a physical sport or performing art. So, while they will have knowledge, understanding and exploration of various types of sports and performing arts they will need to explore this outside of the Korroboree sessions. One of the reasons for this is that we find that physical sport and performing arts education is too generalised and learners of mixed ages and abilities do the same class and practice the same skills so learning the technical skills of that specific sport or performing art is usually done outside of school in any case. However, the implicit skills learned from these areas of study and practice such as collaboration, public speaking, teamwork and the confidence that occurs with public performance will be learned by our learners through the sessions.
After the first e-meet, Your parent coach will share a form which you need to fill up the details and upload the required documents mentioned along with an enrolment fee of Rs. 1000/- all-inclusive.

You will pay 40% of the fees within one week of the confirmation and the balance amount to be paid 1 week before school starts. You can connect with us in case you have any queries. The details of the fees will be provided by our parent coach.
The fees will include all the tuition fees, digital learning materials and online classes. In case any subject requires any specific requirements, (like a physical map) we will provide you with the technical specifications. We will have baskets on Amazon with a learning kit consisting of a notebook, crayons etc. The learner kit is a cost that will not exceed Rs 1500.
Other important FAQ’s
Learners will be in a live classroom along with their learning coach interacting with each other. Learners will also be collaborating on various projects and activities thereby getting a chance to learn from each other too. So, the learner will very much be able to develop his/her social-emotional skills. We have peer learning, break-out rooms and many sessions that require collaboration. Social and emotional learning is embedded throughout the learning design.
Our curriculum is designed to create intrigue which in turn engages learners to find out and experience what they are learning. The learning design is based on high interest and interaction. Our primary goal when creating the instructional design is a love of learning.
Our instructional design ensures we have enough deep coverage of content as well as practice. Homework drill is not required. Homework has always occupied a central position in the culture of schooling over the last decades. However, there is now a growing trend within the education community that advocates a 'no-homework' policy. Authors such as Sara Bennett , Nancy Kalish (Author), John Buell, among many others, do not see any relation between doing homework and academic achievement especially for young learners. They also claim that views advocating the use of homework with kids are not supported by empirical evidence.
Our curriculum is designed to eliminate tutions. If the learner is finding learning of a concept challenging, they can go through the recorded sessions to revise the concept or they can approach the learning with their queries and the learning coach will guide learners in a one on one session.
Between each period we will take a 5 min break and learners will be requested to close their screens and rest their eyes along with a few eye relaxation exercises. Also, as an organisation, we understand this concern and have limited the duration of classes between 2 to 5 hours depending on the grade.
How will the learning coach be trained to take care of the engagement and involvement of the learner?
The learning coach will go through experiential training where our trainers and curriculum designers will train them on how to conduct a class and make the session interactive. The learning coach will be trained in implementing the Dreamtime Learning System. Our trainers will also observe classes on a regular basis to make sure the desired outcome is achieved.
