XSEED Education is an education company headquartered in Singapore, founded by Ashish Rajpal.

The XSEED Method is a research-based academic method of teaching and learning. The XSEED program[2] for schools, based on the XSEED Method, builds thinking skills and problem solving confidence in children. XSEED children ask more questions, can write in their own words, like doing word problems in mathematics, can complete their homework on their own, are not afraid to speak up in English, persist longer in solving problems, and score well on tests.

As of 2018, the XSEED method is practiced in an estimated 3,000 schools across Asia, serving children from birth to thirteen years old. XSEED Education serves over 1,000,000 children. The XSEED System is an integrated curriculum, teacher training, and assessment program for K-8 schools.

XSEED has acquired two technology companies, Pleolabs (2015) and Report Bee (2018).

Overview[edit]

The XSEED Method was invented by Ashish Rajpal, an alumnus of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, after several years of research. It is also called the 5-Step experiential learning method. The XSEED school program content was then developed with a team that included alumni from Harvard, Cambridge, MIT, and IIM Ahmedabad.[3] The program includes a detailed micro-curriculum, training for teachers, assessment tools, and digital learning resources for students. The XSEED program aligns with existing international standards and the syllabus of various boards, including the US Core, Singapore, India(CBSE, ICSE, State Boards), and the Philippines (K-12 standards of the Department of Education). In the classroom, XSEED replaces a knowledge-transmission or "teaching as telling" approach with an inquiry-based, constructivist approach that uses hands-on activities, followed by reflection and feedback. It also emphasises rigour through practice and assessment.

The XSEED Method has been implemented by 3,000 schools across India, the Philippines, Dubai, Riyadh, Qatar, Nepal, and Oman. XSEED has also partnered with the Royal Education Council in Bhutan.
