  • Nischal’s Smart Learning Solutions conducted an inter-district survey after facilitating a teacher workshop attended by 600 participants.

  • The goal of the survey was to assess the importance of effectiveness of hands-on learning methodologies.

  • Over 99% teachers feel kinaesthetic learning can enrich education  for the students.


 Nischal’s Smart Learning Solutions, a pioneer in the K-12 segment, revolutionising education through kinaesthetic and immersive technology-based learning solutions, in a recent survey announced that 99% of teachers prefer experimental teaching approaches over traditional methods. The survey was a proactive initiative conducted with 600 participants from 183 schools, alongside a teachers’ workshop in Kurnool and Kadapa districts of Andhra Pradesh. It aimed to assess educators’ receptiveness to employing 3D interactive technology for immersive teaching experiences, particularly in subjects like mathematics, physics, biology, and chemistry. Emphasising kinaesthetic and immersive learning, the activity saw teachers utilise portable micro-scale laboratories to relate theory to its practical implementation in life.


A comprehensive feedback mechanism assessed the workshop’s impact, with various parameters specifically focusing on the effectiveness of hands-on learning methodologies. The survey highlighted educators’ strong preference for kinaesthetic teaching methods.


Key Findings by District:


Kurnool District  –


  • 43% of Kurnool District teachers endorse hands-on learning and rated it ‘Excellent’, highlighting its efficacy in enhancing conceptual clarity through real-life application.

  • 55% recognize the workshop’s value in education delivery and rated it ‘Good’, indicating a strong inclination towards practical and kinaesthetic learning methods.

  • 2% rated it as ‘Average’, suggesting potential areas for improvement to meet diverse teaching preferences and needs.

Combining the data from both districts, where “Excellent” and “Good” ratings signify approval , we can conclude that 99% of teachers believe in experiential teaching methods over conventional methods of teaching, recognizing its value for students.


Emphasising the importance of experimental teaching, Nischal Narayanam, Founder of nischals says, “The way education is imparted holds a significant impact on the lives of  students. We are delighted to know that teachers have found kinaesthetic teaching methods to be much more effective than conventional methods. This reaffirms our commitment to fostering innovative and engaging learning experiences that empower both educators and students. Furthermore, this also aligns with our goal to break the barriers associated with learning by empowering and equipping teachers for a better tomorrow.”


Over 1.5 million schools in India lack proper laboratories due to financial and infrastructural constraints, ultimately affecting the growth of students in terms of practical and logical thinking and reasoning. According to research by child psychologists, children understand 50% by hearing, 80% by seeing and 100% by doing. However, learning-by-doing remains a challenge for 90% of schools in India owing to a lack of infrastructure, budget and teachers unacquainted with unconventional modes of teaching. The survey, though conducted with participation from teachers, focuses on the skill development of students.


The survey was conducted at four prestigious institutions namely, the Govt. Girls High School, B-Camp, Kurnool; Sri. Chaithanya High School, Adoni; S.P.G. High School, Nandyala; and Sacred Heart Pastoral Centre, Kadapa with 600 participants from 183 schools. Esteemed local government officials and the State Project Director attended the event, highlighting the initiative’s significance in advancing educational practices. This survey highlights the need for the acceptance of kinaesthetic education for both teachers and students in our country.
