After the completion of the first round of capsule courses in Filmmaking, Photography and Electronic Music Production, we asked our students’ parents what they thought of the Project Mynt way of learning. And, luckily, we came off looking pretty good! Don’t believe us? Check out this parent-review of the filmmaking course:
Was there any reluctance before you decided to sign your child up for Project Mynt’s capsule?
We want our child to explore avenues that help open up his mind and vision to the possibilities in life. The only concerns were regarding the faculty he might get, the sort of infrastructure that would be there, the distance from our home and the safety of our child.
What is the biggest change you see in your child after the completion of the course?
This was something he hadn’t done before and we see a rub-off effect in how he does sketching, his favourite hobby, now; he composes a story around what he draws and focuses more on the complete canvas, not just on the characters he’s drawing.
Are you open to letting them explore unconventional careers as their full-time jobs?
Why not? This is the best time to be young in India given the possibilities that exist.
How do you believe that India’s education system needs to evolve so that it can truly benefit your child?
Address each individual and not just the curriculum. I think the education also needs to be in sync with technology, which is not just about using IT in classes but how technology has changed the world. It’s not about knowing stuff anymore. Google can tell you that. It’s how you use that knowledge that matters. In addition, we ought to mainstream creativity and not just limit it to something they do one class a week or in free periods!
How likely are you to recommend Project Mynt to a friend?
