The Significance of Providing Global Exposure to Children

by Samiksha S. Author

With the global boundaries rapidly shrinking in every sphere, the significance of international exposure among children can never be stressed enough. After all, the global issues, technological improvements, modern-world professional landscape, and lifestyle modifications immensely impact our lives today and will continue to do in the future. In such a scenario, sending your kids to a foreign land for their schooling might not always be a viable option, but it’s understandable if you want your child’s school to provide him/her with the necessary global exposure.

At DPS Sushant Lok, we believe that when it comes to bringing that much-needed winning edge in our students, providing international exposure to them is of utmost importance. Let us further elucidate this fact by outlining the factors that have led us to believe in the significance of international exposure for our young geniuses.

Bringing the much-needed diversity in the learning experience

There is no denying that the system of education followed by the CBSE affiliated schools in Gurgaon is different from the international system of education in several aspects. After all, there isn’t any system of education that can combine all forms of learning approaches into one. And, yet, companies tend to reject almost 40% of the applications for the sheer lack of cross-cultural knowledge.

Thus, fitting into the global workspace culture demands the students to draw information from varied resources, including the global ones. This is why at DPS Sushant Lok, one among the leading CBSE affiliated schools in Gurgaon, we ensure providing our pupils with the required global exposure. When our students go through international summer programs and educational trips, it helps their learning experience to come to a full circle.

Real-world experiences for the development of soft skills

In our aim to ensure the holistic development of our fledglings, our prime focus remains on enhancing their soft skills, such as communication abilities, teamwork, adaptability, and leadership traits. However, even though these skills can be imbibed in the young minds, they are hardly ever put to test in their familiar surroundings. Global exposure offers a viable way to ensure that the soft skills that we impart to them are tested in a real-world scenario. After all, as we have always claimed, academic knowledge is crucial, but it aids in attaining future accolades only when it is applied to the real-world setting in the appropriate way.

Personality development through cross-cultural appreciation

It’s the multiplicity and diversity that colors our world, which makes it so beautiful. There are so many things to learn and absorb from every culture in the world, and the young minds are particularly receptive to such knowledge.

For instance, when our students participated in the Indo-French Exchange Program that we brought to them through collaboration with College Notre Dame in Billom, not only did our esteemed guests learned more about our cultural heritage, our children also got to take a closer look at the values and ideas that shape this beautiful foreign culture. Such an interaction aids in broadening our students’ worldview, thereby preparing them better for the global educational and professional arenas that they are going to enter.

Enhancement of rational analysis and critical thinking abilities

Studies suggest that when children are provided with international exposure, it not only leads to an enhancement of their soft skills but also imbibes superior critical and rational thinking abilities among them. It is further highlighted in reports that such children fare better in life, both in terms of personal and professional growth.

The fine-tuning of the abilities of smart working, better time management, and a more informed worldview are varied aspects that aid children all through their lives. Moreover, in a foreign land or when mixing with individuals from different countries, they get to understand the nuances of conducting themselves with dignity, amiability, and respect. All of these are lessons that never lose their essence even when our students cross the threshold of our campus.

It is owing to all of these reasons we enumerated here and many more that have made us continually strive to offer global exposure to our young buds. Be it through the Iacocca Global Entrepreneurship Intensive (IGEI) summer program at Lehigh University (USA), the Nasa Space Program, or the educational trip to Singapore, international exposure has always been a major element in the learning experience that we, at DPS Sushant Lok, deliver as one of the top CBSE affiliated schools in Gurgaon. And, we would like to assure you that as soon as the pandemic gets subsided and things get back to normal, we’ll resume our global initiatives to provide our young budding geniuses with the global exposure they need to grow well in life.
