Pragmatic Education v/s Dogmatic Education

09 December 2016

hands on learning,stem,do it yourself        

  • Traditional/ Dogmatic method of teaching science to students included a stern environment with the teacher as source of sharing knowledge and black board as the source to visualize the concepts.
  • This confined method of learning has inadequate motivation on young minds to develop the verge of exploring and discovering science.
  • Learning science in classroom could just end up as a goal to secure marks in the subject or it can also lead to aspire the student’s to embellish the learnt concepts to design their future life and career, building a bridge between these two scenarios is the challenge of Black Board method of teaching.
  • To teach a science concept interactively by stimulating curiosity in young minds about the subject is the Pragmatic approach of teaching. In this method students learn not just by listening but by doing.
  • Activity based learning, labs, workshops, technology supported equipment’s used within classrooms are the forms of Realistic method of learning.

Pragmatic method of teaching grabs the student’s attention and has higher chance of helping them to retain the science concepts that they learnt by doing. This induces the young minds to think ‘why’, ‘how’ about the concepts which aids them to link the syllabus with practical life concepts.

About learning science ‘hands on’

04 August 2016

science maths kits for children

  • It need to be admitted that there is a problem of a limited use of hands-on or inquiry activities in their classroom teaching approaches that increases pupil interest in primary and secondary classes for science and mathematics.
  • Science/Math’s kits can incorporate and use pedagogical strategies for science classes that are more ‘inquiry-based’ and ‘experience based’ to make science fun and hands-on for the students. 
  • The hands-on materials are meant to excite the students and make their science/math’s learning more meaningful as they would be experiencing and playing around with things and ideas rather than being a mere passive learner.
  • There definitely is a need for the Science /Math’s kits to be have alignment with curriculum outcomes in order to effectively implement them at schools.
  • The science /math kit activities encourage children to engage in ‘collaborative’ science inquiry and generate multiple artifacts of their understanding of science.
  • When children engage in science inquiry, the resulting artifacts enable discussions where children often tend to compare the effectiveness of their designs with the designs of their classmate and these discussions can be highly instructional and can extend beyond the classroom as well.
  • In addition science/math kits increase teacher content knowledge, pedagogic content knowledge, teacher confidence, and enthusiasm for science while imparting education benefits the students.

Why Geometry and Spatial Sense important for pre-preschoolers?

23 May 2016

Did you know that Geometry is one among the first areas of mathematics taught to young children because it enable them to explore and learn about basic forms and relationships?

 geometry,shapes,preschool,kindergarten,Montessori,spatial sense

  •          Experts say that the study of geometry involves shape, size, position, direction, and movement and is descriptive of the physical world we live in. Children's spatial sense is their awareness of themselves in relation to the people and objects around them.

 

  •          How do Children benefit from learning about shapes? The quick answer is that it teaches them describe the environment, identifies characteristics of shapes and help develops the sense of shape.

 

  •          Learning experiences in the primary grades should provide students with opportunities to explore geometric and spatial concepts, and to relate them to real-life situations. Therefore it is important that they learn manipulate concrete materials and do not simply view pictures and diagrams of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional figures

 

  •          Two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional figures have properties that allow them to be identified, compared, sorted, and classified. Therefor encourage pre-schoolers to slide, flip, or turn shapes to promote problem solving and an understanding of transformations

 

  •          Also Spatial reasoning enable children to understand not only their spatial world but also other mathematics topics, art, science etc. social studies, movement and music, and reading etc.

School Bags and health concerns for children

07 October 2015

SCHOOL BAGS AND HEALTH CONCERNS FOR CHILDREN

Oct 7 2015

school bag

Over 60 percent of school children with heavy back packs have been found to be suffering from back bone and muscle problems,  neck pain and also slouched postures, due to fact that children's bones are soft up to the age of 18 and spine is not too strong to carry the weight on their tender shoulders according to health experts. Ideally, a school bag should weigh 10 per cent of the weight of the child. It was found that students in rural areas carry lighter bags than those in urban areas. The schools bags of ICSE and CBSE students were heavier than that of state board students.

 Several government committees to look into the matter has recommended

  •  Doing away with heavy school bags and urged all education boards to reduce the usage of notebooks and textbooks to    make way for tablets and also provide study materials on websites.
  •  The committees has also provided specimen of timetables, suggesting schools to conduct lectures/ periods of only three  subjects in a day (two periods for one subject) instead of six.
  •  They even asks teachers to regularly check the bags of students to stop them from carrying unnecessary things. They  recommends students to carry only light polymer bags than heavy fancy bags.

 Health experts say that children can avoid muscle strains and posture problems if they buy the right backpacks and carry them correctly,

  •  Select a backpack with well-padded shoulder straps to help protect the shoulders and neck. These straps should be adjusted  so the pack fits snugly against your child’s back. A pack hanging loosely from the back can pull a child backward and strain  muscles.
  •  Select a smaller backpack for your younger child. The backpack itself should be light in weight.
  •  Consider a pack with a waist belt to help distribute the weight of the pack evenly.
  •  A loaded backpack should weigh between 10 and 15% of a child’s body weight, according to the American Academy of    Pediatrics.
  •  Help your child learn to carry the pack evenly weighted with straps over each shoulder. Place heavier items, like books, at  the bottom and arrange other materials so they won’t slide around in the backpack.
  •  Encourage your child to check the contents daily and leave unnecessary items at home or at school.
  •  Show your child how to bend at the knees when putting on a backpack. He or she shouldn’t bend over at the waist when  wearing or lifting a heavy backpack.
  •  Help your child learn back-strengthening exercises to build up the muscles required to carry a backpack. A pediatrician,  health professional or athletic trainer can suggest some proper exercises.
  •  Encourage your child to tell you if he’s feeling back or neck pain, and get your pediatrician’s advice if he does.
