“Technology is changing the skills being rewarded in the labor market. The premium is rising for skills that cannot be replaced by robots—general cognitive skills such a s "critical thinking " and sociobehavioral skills such as " managing and recognizing emotions" that enhance teamwork."

Children ask a lot of questions and parents always struggle to keep up with their curiosity. However, what we don't realize is that as parents our responsibility is not to answer their questions but use this inborn curiosity to lay the foundations, which will convert our child into an adult who is an "empathetic critical thinker" for that's what the future requires. The obvious question is, how to do this? This is where the ART course steps in.
The ART course uses time tested stories (Akbar-Birbal, Jataka, Panchtantra, Mahabharat, Ramayana, etc.), as an educational tool to introduce the key ingredients of empathetic critical thinking, applicable in real life situations, in a fun filled engaging manner.

"A refreshing honest reminder of how we should approach problem solving. This course offers fresh perspective on leveraging stories to teach life altering concepts. Its a course for all ages - kids, teens and adults. Introduces key ideas such as its ok to say " No", difference between intelligence and wisdom. The framework, with regular practice, equips an individual to tackle challenges in a very rational way!!"

"We were excited to try out a course that “helps you think rationally”. We did this course as a family and it was time well spent. The stories in the course are oft-repeated, age-old stories, but the way these stories have been co-opted, it makes you think (even as an adult). The course is conducted honestly and without contrivance. Overall, it gives a robust guideline to kids, to become more logical and rigorous in how they evaluate or look at things around themselves.
Heads up, its not a one-time course, kids or even adults need to make a practice of following it. A good parallel would be learning YOGA, but you need to practice it to reap the benefits."

"Based on your suggestion, I have tried the storytelling methodology of practicing problem solving with my family. It worked out really well for us. Helped me motivate and demonstrate to my daughter that she has ideas and capability to pen a story/composition. However, she is still reluctant to do write-ups. Deeply appreciate your guidance."
