Learning from Peers

What or HOW ?

When the learning process is not defined by the tangible outcome, the focus goes on process and not on product. And that is why we have no curriculum or rather we are not worried what does a child chooses to learn - all learning is WORTH.

Planning Mela

Learning is often associated with teaching. The moment there is a thought of learning, another thought follows is “who will teach me”? But we miss out a HUGE resource force “our own peers (friends)”.

"Planning Mela " brought an opportunity to share details with peers. Each one set up their learning stall to share about their plan for this term - inspiring each other, giving ideas, questioning, adding value by giving suggestions...the session was buzzing with sharing and networking!

Jingle-Mingle to understand self in a social environment. We live together but not necessarily we mingle with each other. We live together but not necessarily we connect with each other.

Jatre - Engine

His first presentation.
His attempt to throw himself in front of the audience.
He worked hard to know more about engines.
He worked on himself to come out of his own inhibitions ( I can't, I don't, mistakes means others laugh). 
He worked on making the presentation.
He worked on composing his flow of the session.

Flying

He likes aeroplanes. He wonders how aeroplanes fly? He also likes watching videos on "how the stuff works?"
So both together became a session on "aeroplanes". He took an hour session with the community and explained all about aeroplanes.

Spontanity

We have left the city but the city still live inside us.
Few kids from neighbourhood village came ( all dressed up) to the campus. During the learning Mela on Friday in their school, we casually invited them. And they came today! We didn't expect them to come or we didn't mean a Sunday visit. This was a surprise visit for me. I was not prepared for this.

But the kids at the campus and a volunteer showed interest in playing with them.

And quickly they all got into playing, reading and making!

Jatre - Vedic Maths

Two kids got introduced to Vedic Maths. They decided to teach other kids. They prepared the session, it took them a week to prepare. They shared what they learned. In the process, they learned double!


Imagine Aarohi where there are no classes - because we believe that when children learn and teach each other - there is no need to separate them based on ages. All simply learn from whomsoever we can.
