The resource persons spoke on encouraging and engaging students in fun learning ways. Subjects such as Maths and English need to be taught by relating to stories and values. There should be creativity and learning by art. We ought to inculcate fun learning elements, problem solving skills, visualization, learning by experiencing, contextualization, sustainable development and pleasurable classroom activities. Above all, each child should enjoy every moment of learning. We promote life-long learners, and ‘Learning is Caught not Taught’. Ms. Gayatri from Kidzania spoke about changing the thought process so as to enable and empower the kids with experiential learning. In conclusion, she said, ‘Never give up till you get it right’.
It was an enriching, thoughtful and amazing experience for us to be a part of this event!
