Workshop on 20-07-17

Education is not the learning of the facts, but the training of the mind.

On July 20th 2017, a workshop titled Let’s have fun while we learn was organized for the teachers at Gyan Devi Middle School by KPL Learning Associates. The program was conducted by Ms. Meenakshi Khurana, an academic and strategic advisor with the firm. The workshop helped the teachers to understand the basic concepts behind play way learning, a term used in education and psychology to describe how a child can learn to make sense of the world around them. The advisor explained, how through play, children can develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments. She shared key ways with which a young child can learn like getting appreciation for  their efforts, being with other people, being active, exploring, communication with others, meeting physical and mental challenges, being shown how to do new things, practicing and repeating skills and having fun. By harnessing their natural curiosity to explore, teachers can make learning more effective.
