Skill subject learning by students h3>
Skill subject learning by studentsis the need of the hour,is the requirement of the parents, is the dream of the schools,is the only GOAL of Skillioma h3>
The problems for the students of 21st century
According to several studies, here are the five main problems that the students of today face. In one line, they are not prepared to face real world challenges and are not taught how to solve them. The traditional learning methods aren’t equipped enough to provide the “skills beyond school” that are otherwise mandatory for the student’s success and growth in life and career.
Skillioma solves these problems using a unique approach, where the student is not burdened and yet reaps all the benefits to become a confident, successful individual.

Our teachers are already implementing critical thinking & skills in our school. What difference do your programs bring?
We are happy to hear that. Skillioma is ‘beyond school subjects’ which means whatever you are covering as critical thinking or interdisciplinary aspects would not be touched by Skillioma. We are only focused on real world aspects, and we ensure each student at their grade/class level is fully versed with the real world skills so they are able to practically apply the learnings in their higher studies, internships and jobs and elsewhere in life.
Is your content integrated with our core subject’s(English, Mathematics, Sciences or Social Studies) syllabus?
There is definitely an overlap with core subjects knowledge or topics covered at school but we don’t necessarily focus on mapping our content to the core subjects at your school(all boards).
However, we integrate all real world aspects into any skill. For example, if you have enrolled your school students in a financial literacy skill subject, you would see full integration with marketing, business, economics, banking, domain knowledge, current affairs wherever necessary based on the topic. The goal of Skillioma is to empower the kids of today with the tools necessary for them to excel in the real world and focus on things that are not otherwise covered as part of school syllabus.
Our teachers don’t have time. How can we still implement your programs?
Our goal is to save time for the school and teachers and not ask to spend extra time to implement Skillioma’s programs. Skillioma’s in-house team will take care of seamless implementation, creating logins, grading assignments, answering questions from the school and the students, and sending tracking reports. The only ask from Skillioma from school is to assign a teacher monitor who will just encourage any students that are unable to submit assignments in time.
Does your content align to CBSE skill based subjects?
Yes, our content is fully aligned to CBSE skill based subject’s content based on the grade level. Our content is for the student’s learning process rather than text book based teaching content. The student is fully engaged in the content and the process of self learning which teaches them to be independent, confident, smart and successful. The school does not have to hire any teachers to do the actual teaching of the skill based subjects and this can save time and cost.
Does your concept align to NEP policy?
Skillioma is all about bridging the gap between education and employment. In this global world, our next generation kids need to be abreast with 21st century skills that help them navigate through the real world challenges. NEP aims at incorporating the essential skills into school curriculum and make the learning more practical and interdisciplinary. Skillioma totally aligns their thinking and vision to NEP’s vision. We are also open to hearing new ideas and willing to incorporate them into our school programs.
Our students are very busy with their academics, how can they learn more from your programs?
Yes, we do agree that students of today are very busy and burdened with the school’s syllabus. However, that alone isn’t doing every good necessary for them to embark on the success journey. They need to be compensated, supplemented with the right, relevant tools and knowledge so it completes their learning process.
That is why Skillioma’s programs are equally important from a value perspective. Here are some options below
- Schools can simply use their extra curricular periods to support students’ learning time or they can assign it as homework for a subject, giving them extra marks to encourage them to learn the right way.
- Students if they opt for the skill based subject as an elective, then they can learn the entire subject that is part of their academics in less time and with the right knowledge and skills.
- Students can just spend 30 minutes a day and still be able to complete all their lessons.
- The programs are structured in such a way that the students will only need 3-4 hours a week and still be able to learn everything about that skill or the 21st century skills.
How is your content unique?

Which classes are your programs created for?
Grades 6-12(Classes 3-5 can be accommodated based on individual discussions)
CBSE provides textbook content for skill based subjects. How does the school benefit additionally from your programs or content?
CBSE does provide textbooks for most skill based subjects, however that is written for a teacher to teach instead of a student to learn. And the school should have to hire teachers.
Skillioma’s content is fully unique and completely real world geared. Skillioma offers several other features like mentorship, independent learning skills, all 21st century skills in one platform, builds general awareness and a lot of interdisciplinary bonus content that CBSE text books don’t cover and that are necessary for the real world.
We are interested in implementing Skillioma’s programs in our school. How do we contact you?
Does Skillioma help our kids in academics?
As some of our topics will match to some academic subjects, there definitely is going to be a boost for every child in academics too. Our general knowledge section will also help a great deal in most competitive exams. Further, Skillioma can be a powerful asset for children who are opting for the Math and Science stream in school. With Skillioma, these children can still learn vital 21st century skills which are not part of their subject group.
Why does my child need to learn these skills? Doesn’t he/she get enough from school and the internet?
Yes, in the present-day scenario there is information everywhere for our children. But are they able to learn what they want on the topics related to general knowledge, science or sports by distilling the information at their own discretion? And are parents feeling safe for their children to search about anything on the internet at any time? Moreover, the employability of our children is very less (despite their academic strength) once they graduate from college as they are lacking necessary life skills that are not taught in schools. Skillioma is our sincere effort to assist our children so they become independent.
How do our children get time to use this platform amidst busy school and tuition schedules?
Skillioma isn’t aimed at creating additional stress or rote memorisation. No matter how good our kids are in their academic grades, they need the skills to be successful in colleges or internships or jobs. We at Skillioma are a team of experts in the domain areas who handpick exactly those topics that are required to learn for the child’s success. We make them think, we make them have healthy competition, we create enthusiasm and above all these are must-have skills for the young generation. Most importantly, they don’t have to spend too much time, an average of 2-3 hours a week is sufficient to build the core strengths in the essential real world skills.
What is STEM.org?
STEM.org or STEM Educational Research (SER) SER is the longest continually operating, privately-held STEM education research and credentialing organization in America. SER has served over 4,500 schools, districts, and organizations in over 25 countries, such as Wayne State University, Malaysian Institute of Technology Academy, Artificial Intelligence Scientific Centre (Caribbean), Tioga Drone Camp, Estella’s Brilliant Bus, and Dearborn Public Schools. SER’s trustmark (STEM.org AccreditedTM) is the most popular and has been used extensively for the highest recognition it offers to the students.
SER has been featured in Yahoo Finance, Reuters, CNBC, The Boston Globe, NYMetro Parents and Detroit Public Television. It was recently selected by the NewYork Times, out of over 80 organizations, to commission the first multi-page STEM advertorial (to define STEM education) in the newspaper’s 166 year history.
What does it mean to earn STEM.org accreditation and trustmarks for Skillioma?
Earning the STEM.org accredited and STEM.org reviewed trustmarks mean that the programs/courses given by Skillioma are thoroughly vetted for the accuracy, comprehensiveness, authenticity, reliability, quality, curriculum, framework, content for the 21st century skill learning. This endorsement also means that the founders are credible and are on a mission to serve the education space in a purposeful manner.
How does earning a STEM.org blockchain certificate build a college profile for my highschool students to get admission in good colleges?
All the good colleges’ foreign college admission application process has the sections : Resume / CV and Extra curricular activities. Under these two categories, having a STEM.org blockchain certificate will enhance your chances of getting admission into a good college. (For example, if two students get the same SAT scores, then preference will be given to those that have enhanced their skills under extra curricular activities or some colleges prefer these skills for higher SAT scores or academic scores).
How can my students earn the STEM.org blockchain certificate?
At the end of every lesson in any course you take with us, you will have critical thinking challenge assignments that need to be submitted to Skillioma for review, grading and feedback. The completion certificate has to be earned and for that you have to attempt at least 90% of the assignments and secure a 70% score, after which you will be awarded the blockchain STEM.org certificate for Skillioma’s courses that you take. You will be awarded a STEM ID, which cannot be tampered and can be accessed by any organisation by just entering the ID into the credentialing verification system. This will add huge value to your success in job and career or higher education.
