Knowledge is something which cannot be imparted in children with only academics. Learning is a lifelong process and gaining knowledge comes as a part of this process. It is what they gain with time and experience.
We have always heard students say they don’t like one particular subject for X reason but in reality, it’s not just the course that matters but the method of teaching shapes the brain and character of a child.
Today with the coming of age and technology the way we learn, and grasp has changed many folds.
We not only want our little ones to excel in studies but also in other spheres of life such as sports, community services, music, art etc.
Learning is a process and for us, as parents, it has become important to be involved and know what our children are learning in school. With the integrated learning solution like MyPedia, what children are studying in school is now easily available to view by both parents and students later at any given time and this is where the actual gap can be bridged.
I got myself to play around MyPedia to see and understand how it actually works. Here are some of my takeaways:
MyPedia comes into use to improve the overall learning experience and integrates all learning and teaching tools in a well-designed scientific manner to improve the way ‘How Children Learn’.
The aim of MyPedia is to transform education delivery in schools and use an interdisciplinary learning approach and a robust pedagogy designed to build life-long skills and support learning even beyond the four walls of a classroom.
Currently, MyPedia is available for students from Primary to Grade 8 with different themes provided for each class and session which is making the learning a lot more wholistic.
What MyPedia does? It promises measurable improvement in the cognitive skills of the learner with its specially crafted set of course books supported by worksheets designed for multiple difficulty levels to nurture critical and creative thinking skills among learners.
Each lesson in MyPedia is built upon the 5i model of the learning process – Inception, Ideation, Inculcation, Inscription, and Inquisition. The model is aligned with the learning cycle advocated for inquiry-based learning in classrooms.
Research suggests and it’s a known fact that we remember things better and retain them longer when we associate meaning to them. With the regular textbooks MyPedia includes a lot of multimedia objects such as videos to help students understand and learn instead of just memorising.
