Learn with doodles™ is a proprietary learning methodology developed by 2 IITians, that empowers learners to tap into their creative potential to learn and express a new concept by means of doodles. This proprietary methodology tremendously improves the imagination power of learners, pushes their creativity to the limits, encourages learners to understand the basic fundamentals of the concepts they are learning and come up with very interesting innovative concept expressions. This proprietary learning method is not only fun, it lights up the enthusiasm of the learners, increasing their curiosity to learn more.
The Learn with doodles™ outcomes are validated by expert teachers to ensure the science fundamentals are correct.
The learners are also trained to master the art of doodling and expressing them through short videos. This adds to their professional skill set of visual communication and empowers them to be master communicators.
Learn with Doodles is found to be super addictive for the learners, enhancing their retention by 400% and learning enthusiasm by 800%. This makes the learners active creators rather than passive media consumers.
Learn with doodles™ methodology can be applied to any subject matter for in depth learning.

"World economic forum" and "Linked in" positions Creativity as one of the Top 3 skills that are required to be employable in 2019 and in the future. For creativity to manifest and flourish, development of both Left and Right brain is crucial. However Schools, from where the future workforce is produced, are giving over emphasis on left brain development and are not providing enough avenues to develop right brain capabilities to facilitate creativity in school kids. Is there a way one can use the very same subjects used for left brain development and use them for development of the right brain capacities as well?
