Nai Taleem

Here is a fun set of activities, survey, perspective and information on Sanitary waste designed using Nai Taleem pedagogy.

Bangalore based waste crusaders sat together to compile a set of themes that would encourage children to know, learn and act about the solid waste issues in and around their locality.

Curriculum designed around use and advocacy of natural building materials for an open learning centre in rural /tribal spaces.

Material: Mud/ Bamboo/ stones Objective to use these materials:

Mosquitoes, the buzzing, biting & annoying insects are one of the oldest species that have seen us through since ages. Not necessarily a malaria or a dengue patient, but anyone who forgot to secure the mosquito net  properly will testify their struggle with a it. Read out more on them.

 

On face of it, they indeed are EVS activities. When you scratch the surface, you will notice so many other interesting themes (like, surveying, map making, presenting data, creating workable models and prototyping) that come handy in other subjects, emerge on the sidelines of the content explored. Try them out.

 

Did you know that Gandhiji’s beloved charkha was made of Bamboo !

I was late. I had promised I would reach by 9 AM but by the time I walked through the gate of the Ashram, it was noon. I had sent a SMS about the delay so I was relatively guilt free when I walked through the gate of the school premises. I saw two boys outside the class, they looked sheepish. I asked them in my Marathi-English- “punishment midala ka? “ (Did you get punished?). They shuffled their feet in response. Peeked in to see Sushama taking a class.

This article is based on my learning from education. People say that education is a lifelong process. What is Nayi Talim? It may be to understand the students and connect with our selves.

I was just lying down after returning from the school, when someone knocked on the door. Vijay, from grade 5th and Rakesh from grade 6th were standing at the door. They entered and demanded,

‘Ben, we want bhakhri’

‘Please, I am tired. Not now,’ I replied.

‘But Ben, we will help you. Please do it.’ They brought me to the kitchen.
