“Sharing will enrich everyone with more knowledge” - Ana Monnar
We have always seen teachers teaching the kids in a classrooms. But in such a traditional teaching method even if we ask students share their views, kids usually do not open up, they are not interested in discussion as well. True learning and understanding can happen when kids initiatively start discussing what they have learned and understood about the matter. But, it is very difficult to make them involve in discussion. To attempt so, many international schools are conducting an activity known as share your learning. They brake all the bonds of classrooms and grades, Upper and lower graders are asked to communicate and discuss their learning with each other. Usually the higher graders explain their learning to the lower graders. Really schools today are introducing very innovative ways to make kids involve in the learning process.
Here are some of the features of such sharing and learning education:
To teach is to learn first. While teaching the concepts the higher graders prepare a lot. With such a preparation for teaching in the entire process they gain deeper knowledge about the concept which otherwise could not be achieved. Also such a teaching increases confidence and clarity of student’s conceptual understanding.
- Openness and Discussion:
It is interesting to learn from seniors. And once there is no stereotypical classrooms structure, kids love to interact in an open minded way. They simply go on discussing various concepts about the subject. This discussion type of learning is the ideal learning as students are easily involving and clearing their point of view about the subject.
- Innovative progress:
With understanding, teaching, sharing and discussing the process eventually extends to the next innovation. As kids are learning as a team they think beyond the books and come up with innovative next solutions with observation and sharing. Such an innovation is the real purpose of education system.
- Bond Strengthens:
Human beings love the company of same age people. That’s why we generally have friends of our nearby age, as we are living the similar lives. With such an event all likeminded and nearly same age kids come together to discuss and learn. Eventually, such an education strengthens the bond between individuals and they grow together as a friend. This bonding is further important for walk of life.
