Can Multiple Intelligence Create Magic in Childhood learning ?Seth Anandram Jaipuria School Ghaziabad
Tell me and I’ll forget,
Show me and I may remember,
Involve me and I learn.
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
In “The Festival of Multiple Intelligence” at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, the children were fortunate enough to catch hold of an opportunity to LOVE, LAUGH and LEARN a lot through the activities which helped them in understanding their abilities in different fields. These activities go a long way in boosting their confidence as they help them in identifying their strengths.
Fitness is a journey, not a destination.
It was spectacular to see how children were geared up for the day with some dance, aerobics and exercises.
One can’t love someone to love books, but he can tempt them to become a dedicated devourer of stories.
Children were remarkably engaged as the session by the story teller was phenomenal and they could even remember the story in sequence. Being good imitators, the children imitated her very well and were in their own imaginary world.
“OSMO – a world of I-pads for little Jaipurians.”
Our children covet our phones and tablets. But as they move towards an increasingly high-tech future, they need to learn how things work. They need to be creators, not consumers.
Smart devices and software these days help explore a child’s creativity in a host of ways. As technology offers a glorious union of learning and games, with I-pads, it just took a tap to pop bubbles. Once they advanced dragging their fingers over the screen, it was quite an electrifying experience to see how children could solve shape puzzles, number games or even practice simple drawing exercises.
Nobody would deny that coding can be used to solve problems.
The best way to solve a big problem is to reduce it down into smaller problems, and then solve them one at a time. Children enthusiastically learnt coding through programming and logical thinking. We do ensured that the little Jaipurians are ready for the challenges lying ahead. They didn’t even know that they were learning a lesson for life.
Children carry their own experiences and transform them through art, music and science which help them in becoming confident.
As you all know, we learn through our experiences. It was great fun for the children knowing facts about gravity and launching their own rockets. They comprehended this experiential learning very well.
Children express themselves well through art and craft.
With the essence of Christmas all around, our budding artists made their own Santas and carried them home.
Play gives children a chance to practice what they’ve learnt.
Children were given exposure through flash cards and a few wooden blocks. With just one instruction, the smart learners mastered the arrangement of those 3D doodles.
Many a times, we learn things by doing them.
Each child witnessed how pots were being made with the help of clay. A bit messy but this first- hand experience of playing with mud and making their own pots under the supervision of two potters was beyond words and could be seen on their faces.
Hence, this proves –
What we learn with pleasure, we never forget.
In the great outdoors there are no boundaries to creativity.
Last but not the least, their excitement for gifts and burgers was at the top. Receiving of gifts at the end made their smiles brighter.
With such wonderful experiences, who would not love to be an active participant of this Multiple Intelligence Festival ????
