Learning in the modern era
Respecting the unique individuality of each child and believing that every child will be successful in his field of interest, we have to accept them as they are. Academic statistics alone will not suffice to achieve our goal. We need to emphasise on the various dimensions of a child’s personality. Caring, respect and the adaptable methodologies of the school incorporate multiple intelligences. Valuing individualism, creativity and innovation ensures the emotional growth of a child along with intellectual excellence.
As educators, we should be interested in ensuring that a child realizes his or her full potential. Experiential learning helps the child to share ideas, analyze situations and express them with confidence. Unique combination of the traditional and modern teaching promotes in blending the old and time-tested values with modern techniques .This will ensure us that every child will spread the light of knowledge, wisdom, compassion, humility and humanitarianism.
Child centric pedagogy which emphasises on inquiry and project based learning will help in arousing curiosity in students who will strive to experiment and innovate. Education should go beyond the limits of pre discovered facts and theorems. It should break all barriers and ignite young minds to become inquirers, thinkers, achievers, communicators and Global citizens.
Apart from the rigorous scholastic programmes we also have the responsibility of seeking , developing and nurturing the different facets of a child. This is where we shift our view – from academics to co scholastics. Dance, Music, Theatre and a variety of Sports activities will help in developing the mental and physical abilities of a student. These activities provide the holistic grooming of the child.
Support, encouragement, praise and motivation are factors which help us in aiming at high academic achievements. Collaborative effort towards building professional administration, committed teacher force and motivated students will surely help us in filling the Globe with future citizens who are successful, motivating and responsible individuals.
