“Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience.” – David A. Kolf
Learning through experience is a wonderful way for students to learn and retain the knowledge. Hands-on activities require students to use skills like problem-solving and decision-making, which hones their abilities further and accelerates the process of learning.
Students of SAI International School are always encouraged to learn by doing, for which several innovative and interesting activities are conducted on a regular basis. Steps are taken to ensure that each child get immersed in these activities and inculcate the habit of lifelong learning.
In one such activity, students of Class VII described the poem ‘Macavity the Mystery Cat’ by T.S.Eliot, through a well-prepared power point presentation (PPT), which made the poem more interesting. Another group of Class VII student made a presentation on the story “Helping Hand”, right from their English Literature. They explained the chapter in a beautiful way, which made it all the more immersive.
Class VIII students made a presentation on the interpretation of the poem “Television’, a famous poem that advises and inspires children to read books instead of watching television. It warns us about the dangers of watching television excessively. Another group of Class VIII students made posters to put across the importance of water and also spoke on the topic “Water – the Global need of the hour”.
