Our methodology is inspired by works of founders of experiential learning approach like John Dewey, Kurt Lewin and Jean Piaget. However, our methodology is very similar to David Kolb’s four-stage model of experiential learning. It is argued that our methodology is practical application of this approach in teaching school curriculum.



Following two educators of Indian origin has contributed significantly in the conception of this idea:

  • P.K. Srinivasan – Fulbright Exchange teacher in USA. Later became Director Emeritus, Ramanujan Museum and Math Education Center (Chenni, India)
  • M. Hyacintha A.C – Director, Carmel Teacher Center, Hazaribagh, India



  • Invisible design of the products has been awarded by National institute of design (NID), Ahmedabad, India.
  • J-PAL, a research center at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), United States established that Vikalp shows substantial gain in learning outcomes.
  • Vikalp has been featured twice in Outlook magazine for the impact it’s creating among students.


Conducted by FSG- international NGO based in Washington DC.  

Students subscribing to Vikalp methodology scored 61% higher than control students not subscribing to this way of learning.

Conducted by Gray Matters – measures learning outcomes of children

Average scale score of sample where conventional teaching is practiced – 88 out of 200
Average scale score after 1 year of implementation of Vikalp methodology – 105 out of 200

Conducted by Lean data study by Acumen – New York based assessment agency

  • 80 % parents observed increase in their child’s score
  • 83% parent observed improvement in interest in math, ability to grasp concepts, willingness to do homework independently.
