Learning by Doing and Experimenting

Word war INSIDE

Two kids fighting…we let this happens

Few kids not able to work together…we let this continue

One child is not accepted…we let this continue

‘boys’ and ‘girls’ fight over ‘silly’ things…we let that happen

jealousy, revenge, putting down, friendship, support, acceptance, rejections…all are part of the environment.

There is nothing to CHANGE! There is only to be AWARE!…and that’s what we do.

Wondering with scientific thinking!

.Where does wind comes from? What difference it would have made if all the fingers are of different size? Why eraser rub the pencil? Why trees goes up? Why we can't listen from nose? What is scientific thinking? - Is it wondering...keep thinking..not one thought but continue to think... thinking which does not stop with one answer.

Challange to Glow!

The job a facilitator is very dynamic – we are always on roller coaster ride – sometimes doing down, sometime going up, sometimes getting goosebumps, sometimes screaming with joy!

Three Steps

Welcome to the world of open learning at Aarohi! Sometimes the word "open" can be misleading and lead to "doing nothing". And doing nothing is not contemplating but distracting, postponing, procrastinating....Here we suggest THREE steps suggestion to start your open learning journey

ONE - Choose at least 20-30 things to explore including known, unknown, easy, difficult, new, old.... Share the list with us for us to add value.

Knowing Democracy

Democracy cannot be learnt, it can be experienced. Our most aspirational endeavour - to create and keep Aarohi as a democratic space. We are experimenting with many form of interactions, communications, interventions and systems - all targeted to make the community truly interdependent - with co-creation, co-learning and co-existence as key parameters
MY VOICE - A platform to raise one's voice for any aspect of working of Aarohi.

Consuming or Producing?

They signed up for "story telling sessions". One of the facilitator was telling stories in different languages...they were happy and entertained. During one of the story session, they were introduced to shadow puppetry. They were excited with the play of light, and of characters to create a story.

Afforestation - Seedballs

Fridays are special at Aarohi  - sometimes visiting places, sometimes working together, sometimes watching movies !

Auntonomy - Wish to do!

Some new, Some old, Some big, Some small…it didn’t matter.  The life began with exploring autonomy – the power to make decisions!

Learning Utsav - A new Beginning

The story of Learning Utsav at Aarohi started with one thought "What if at one place, on the same day, there are lots and lots of people … children, young adults, parents, senior citizens … all with different gifts, coming together to create the magic of co-learning. Learning Utsav, where anyone can teach, anyone can learn … a day to experience the joy of learning, sharing, exploring, mingling... Celebrating learning without any boundaries of age, caste, gender or status".
Inspiration and confidence come from LSUC (Learning Society Unconference).
