The first principal of true teaching is that teaching can be taught.nothing can be taught to the mind which is not ready concealed as potential knowledge in the unfolding soul of the creature
-Sri Aurobindo

Education is a self-organizing system,where learning is an emergent phenomenon.
-Dr.Sugata Mitra

Coming from two hugely influential thought leaders – one deeply spiritual and the other completely data-driven and scientific -we see an amazing convergence of thought which is the core philosophy behind I wanna Learn. We believe that our mission is to create a conducive and enriching environment for learning the fundamental concepts of Math for any learner. As a large part of this mission, we strive to create and curate the most authentic and relevant content in order to enable learning and reinforce it by repeated practice. We trust that this environment is built you to succeed and not to test you or for you to fail. The agency of learning is something that we believe rests firmly with you-the learner. We are there with you to encourage you,listen to you and empower you by providing whatever we can in the form of content. Every success of yours will be a small validation of our mission.

I wanna learn roots go back to 2011 when we began our journey to discover tech based and self paced learning solutions. The quest started with one school in Mylapore and led to the birth of Karka Math Labs which were set up in thirty schools across Tamil Nadu over the nine years.

Needless to say, this journey would not have been possible but for our inspirations and huge support and collaborations along the way.

Khan Academy and Sal Khan for being huge inspiration for our mission and the support in the form of amazing content that is largely responsible for the learning spine of I wanna learn holding strong.

Prof Sugata Mitra and his TED Talk that inspired us to set up our version of a SOLE (Self organised learning environments) in the form of  Math Labs where learning can happen!

Bhoomika Trust, who have been a constant source of support to set up labs in Government schools and run them sustainably.

Palayam Foundation, USA for the generous grants that have funded the development cost of the platform and for supporting running of  Math Lab environments.

Urjita, who have been an amazing source of strength for us to expand the Math labs across schools and to give us the confidence to dream big.

Vetrivel Foundation for providing the vernacular content in Tamil of Khan Academy videos.

Dozens of Volunteers and Interns who have worked on developing and testing the content.

Mr Gopalan, the administrator of Sri Karpagavalli Vidyalaya, Mylapore, who believed in us and let us set up and run our first  Math Lab.

We are all born with extraordinary powers of imagination, intelligence, feeling, intuition, spirituality, and of physical and sensory awareness
