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.

"Experience is the Teacher of all things "-Julius Caesar 

Blogs_experiential learning

Experiential Learning is an emerging field in the education world which is based on the philosophy of encouraging students to learnthrough experience as against pure instructions from teacher. Students become more actively involved and has fun in the learning process as compared to traditional methods and are found to learn better. Students learn from mistakes and consequences achievments. David Kolb, a renowned psychologist was behind this theory.

Experiential learning can be good for helping people explore their own strengths when learning new things.For example, let's imagine that you are going to learn how to drive a car. Some people might choose to begin learning via reflection by observing other people as they drive. Another person might prefer to start by reading and understanding a driving instruction book. Yet another person might decide to just jump and get rigtht behind the seat of a car to practice driving on a test course.Those who are considered "watchers" prefer reflective observation, while those who are "doers" are more likely to engage in active experimentation. For effective learning to occur, teacher would need ensure students should be provided with such learning experiences so they can relate them with real-life. It can help students engage and motivate .Teachers should also make sure they are able to create opportunities for reflection on learning experiences to apply them to future learning.

Technology could be utilized in experiential learning very well and it encourages students to learn by collaboration and participation and students become very engaged when they use a real-life method of learning. There are a number of available technologies to realize the desired outcomes from experiential learning. One among such is make use of digital game-based teaching. Here computer-based environments are simulated that are considered to be a motivating and engaging for students to learning and they could benefits from direct exploration of ideas and construction of meaning can be realized.

So, the next big thing to be seen in learning through technology is the incorporation of technology in experiential learning to provide great learning experiences
