HLC's Theory of Learning With Understanding

Learning is a complicated interplay of several factors. Every learner needs an adaptive learning environment. There are many opportunities to improve learning outcomes for students in a school situation, yet, not all of them can be identified by human intuition alone. This requires a deliberate study of student’s capabilities through a thorough analysis. Students do our workouts and we do the rest.


As early as 2004, the idea formed at our school that we must enable children to acquire clear and precise cognitive skills besides comprehending the curriculum. When it began, our Director, Mr. Naveen Mahesh, did a pilot across 25 schools in Chennai to understand what children were learning from a curriculum. Upon realising that too much of today’s focus within school education is on comprehending the curriculum, we initiated gathering cognitive data from student assessments. 2 sets of papers were created for every learner at HLC and their cognitive capabilities and the make up of questions was recorded on one of them. Over time, this was exported to MS Excel to identify and analyse patterns in student performances.

Since then, Kognify has evolved from idea into a product that can personalise homework for every learner. Kognify now automates personalised learning in numerous schools around the country.
