Experiential learning

"Harnessing the Power of Experiential Learning in Jayapriya Vidyalaya Matric Higher Secondary School for Better Education"

Experiential learning is a powerful approach to teaching and learning which has been gaining traction in the education space. It is a process which involves learning through experience, often in a hands-on way, and encourages students to think critically about their experiences. As such, it can be an incredibly effective way of teaching and learning within the classroom.

Experiential learning is based on the idea that knowledge is constructed through active experience. In this type of learning, our students are encouraged to explore, experiment, and reflect on their own experiences in order to develop their understanding. It is a process which fosters creativity, self-discovery, and collaboration.

Experiential learning can provide many benefits to our students in school, including:

  •   Developing problem-solving skills

  •   Organizing field trips and visits to relevant places
  •   Encouraging students to reflect on their experiences
  •   Providing opportunities for students to collaborate and work together
