Experiential Learning

This book is particularly a preparation for understanding Science. Science is built from curiosity, experience, analysis and finally the expression of a discovery. The main part of this process is arranging objects, activities and ideas so as to create a new order or pattern. Science is the discovery of new patterns. This book is to help children discover the patterns and arrangements of the world around them by using their hands, senses and minds.

There is no doubt that a good laboratory will enrich the learning and teaching of science. While this is undisputable, it is possible to transform the teaching and learning of science even without a full-fledged laboratory, provided one can draw upon everyday experiences, commonly asked questions, easily available materials and just a few tools that may need to be purchased.

Academic Learning is an indicator that combines academic identification (which refers to getting along with teachers, having an interest in the subject matter, and related behaviours and attitudes) and academic participation) which captures the student's work effort both inside and outside of school, including hours spent outside the school.

“Science is not a subject to be taught just through books”, teacher Narendra Sharma said. “If we provide opportunities to children to learn while doing, they are able to learn easily and do not have to take the path of rote-learning."


Earthian is a sustainability education program for schools and colleges run by Wipro. For the purposes of this article, we will consider only the school programme going forward.

The purpose of education is to make human beings capable, competent ,and wise so as to meet the challenges of life. In a world that is dynamic, entropy and chaos quickly enter the picture as the pace of life becomes faster, the demands on an individual’s mental, physical, and emotional resources increase and flexibility and adaptability become the buzz words. To accommodate all these factors, one needs to be innovative and creative, be able to work collaboratively, communicate effectively, think critically and be proactive.

Unlike the traditional use of stories in a classroom, this lesson plan attempts to use them to teach a subject like science.

How does one begin to learn geography? A great deal of geography can be done in the observation of the immediate environment, both natural and human, through direct fieldwork and observation. Much of the learning can be connected to activities such as walks in the neighbourhood, gardening on a plot of land, as well as field trips.

Observation should become the foundation for learning biology. Children need to be moved outdoors for learning. Instead of textbooks, there should be classroom libraries, and perhaps, textbooks should be discarded altogether. Importantly, children need to be given time for learning.
