XSEED Education is a Singapore based education company founded by Ashish Rajpal. It creates and runs the XSEED program for teaching and learning.[2]

The XSEED System is an integrated curriculum, teacher training, and assessment program for K-8 school and out-of-school education. 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 emphasizes rigor through practice and assessment.

The XSEED program has reached close to 2 million students across several countries. XSEED Education 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. 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).

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.
