Experiential Learning Strategies
Experiential Learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as "learning through reflection on doing". The module actively defines and describes the strategies towards dwelling learning by practical doses.
Fun in classrooms is a requisite. As teachers, we must not use technology as a silicon coating but harness the power of technology to connect with our students. No more, it is about copying and pasting, which we have had been doing over the years. To control corrupt politicians, PowerPoint corrupts the teachers if it has just slides and no explanations. For a matter of thought and intelligence, the platform should share for show rather than expecting it to be the only parcel for knowledge delivery. There is a specific need to implement a new way of teaching through technology, and hence a digital pedagogy is required the most. The teachers need to introspect how children may learn in this networked environment. We can’t simply take a textbook and deliver it digitally; somewhat, the need here is to explore the power to harness the best via connectivity and creativity to connect.
We can’t think and re-discover the chalkboard and make it an intelligent board to deliver knowledge. What is required is a novel mindset of love, care, and delivery of priorities for our children within classrooms. We ultimately need a different paradigm for teaching, a different pedagogy that talks about creation, control of chaos, connection to correcting, and consumption to creation. The teachers need to change their thinking of how they are going to use technology in education.
Have great learning. Cheers.
Hands-on learning can be a form of experiential learning, but does not necessarily involve students reflecting on their product. It reflects as a part of learning and doing. Making learning as a life long learning experience in particular.
