30th January 2013 – Experiential Learning
A seminar on Experiential Learning organized by Creative Children Media was attended by Maths Teacher on 30th January 2013 at Apparel House, Gurgaon. Experiential learning, as the name suggests, means learning from experiences, observations and interaction. It is an innovative approach into education in which students actively engage in relevant and authentic experiences that reinforce academic lessons or teaching skills. These hands- on experiences deepen understanding and have lasting impact.
To provide more guidance on the topic a discussion was organized by the “Mr. H.O. Gupta (NCERT), Ms. Kadambari (member of British Schools), Ms. Richa Agnihotri (Step by Step School, Noida) and Ms. Katherine Rose (member of creative children media) were a great source of guidance.
According to the experiential learning means - doing and learning. Thus one makes discoveries and experiments with knowledge instead of reading about others’ experiences. Experiential activities are among the most powerful teaching and learning tools available.
In experiential learning individuals are encouraged to involve themselves directly in the experience and then to reflect on their same using analytical skills in order to gain better understanding of the new knowledge and retain the information for a longer time.
Thus a teacher should design more and more of activities keeping the four H’s in mind:
HANDS ON: doing an activity
HEAD ON: brain- storming
HEART ON: enjoyable
HEALTH ON: physical fitness.
The workshop was a huge learning experience for the teacher.

9th January 2013 – Experiential Learning and Multiple Intelligence
‘I want my children to understand the world, but not just because the world is fascinating and the human mind is curious. I want them to understand it so that they will be positioned to make it a better place.’
Gone are the days when we used to talk about intelligence, we talked about IQ alone. Today, in this ever-evolving world, where making your presence felt is of utmost importance, the best way out is to show the depth of your grey matter.
In this view, teachers of SGS participated in an In-house workshop headed by school’s Academic head Mrs. Sumana Dutta Sarkar. The session was started by a couple of icebreaker activities wherein teachers of Nursery and Pre Primary levels were involved in a Phonetic drill while playing ring-a-roses and another being the best one-Talking positive things about the co-teacher by each one of them. This gave all the ‘individual’ teachers a sense of ‘group’ feeling. This was followed by an activity wherein the teachers were divided in different groups and experienced ‘Student centric’ and ‘Teacher centric’ methods of teaching young learners. In this process, teachers agreed to the fact completely that student can learn more effectively if they undergo an experience themselves. As teachers, we touch so many lives in more than one role that is of a teacher. We are actors for a three year old while narrators, musicians for a rhyme time and the list is endless. Multiple Intelligence inclusive of Moral, Linguistic, Logical-mathematical, Musical, Bodily-kinesthetic, Spatial, Intrapersonal, Naturalist, Spiritual and Existential Intelligence - were also elaborated in detail.
Hope is the lone weapon through which we, as teachers can keep the light of peace, faith and love shining bright. The workshop enlightened the teachers on the ways they can use in their teaching methodologies that will help them groom a child in a holistic manner.
