Our Principles – The 7 E approach to Learning
Founded on the principles of teaching-learning given by Daaji and unconditional, universal love, THLC promotes and inspires children to learn by adopting the 7E process to learning.
The7 E approach to Learning
Instead of spoon-feeding them with information on any particular subject, students’ curiosity and interest are kindled, which in turn creates the hunger and happiness to learn more about the subject, by exploring it further.
The focus here is to bring the heart into each and every aspect of the learning process and not just depending on the left brain energy. Children experience and deduce their heartfelt reflections.
Heightens analytical thinking, enables collaborative and cooperative learning. Theoretical concepts gain life not only in Sciences, but in other subjects as well.
If you’re thinking this is the teacher’s role, then you are mistaken. The teachers are merely facilitators, asking children relevant questions and providing them with the right atmosphere to express their understanding of the subject in their own way.
With the understanding gained so far, children are urged to present and share their learning with others. This gives scope for exchange of ideas and opening to others’ viewpoints. The child also begins to work on practical assignments.
Children are encouraged to stretch their boundaries to learn in depth about the subject. They are motivated to keenly observe, experiment and experience.
7. EXTEND :
At this stage, children are facilitated to take their learning beyond the school and observe it’s practical implications in day-to-day life and in their interactions with others. This is time for them to put their life skills into action.
