Pioneer of Games-based Learning in India helping develop Thinking Skills the fun way
An idea, a theory of change, an informal research which germinated in 2003, culminated as Mind Edutainment Pvt. Ltd. being incorporated in 2007 – the company behind the Konshius program. We pioneered games-based learning in Indian schools in 2008, making development of Thinking Skills and Learning Potential of children equally important as academics or physical health.
We are solely dedicated to the vision – Uncover Thinking, Discover Potential, All While Having Fun! – of children, parents and educators. Through our uniqe pedagogy and patented games, we have already benefitted more than 2.5 lacs children and 1.2 lacs parents in India. More than 120 schools have implemented our games-based system as a part of their school curriculum. We have coached hundreds of adults to become THOTS and Konshius Counsellors to work with students in schools, and families at home.
