i3 Learning Ladder
I= Inquisitiveness I= Inquiry attitude I= Innovation
I= Step one of learning is to get the child inquisitive about a subject, topic, object, concept. It is truly believed that unless one is not curious enough to learn, the sole purpose of learning is diluted.
II= Step two is to ensure that the curiosity developed is sustained. That is, to give encouragement to him/her to inquire, ask random or relevant questions and in the process build up a positive inquiry based attitude towards learning.
III= Step three, is free the mind of the child to re think, recreate and re innovate. This is the experience that he/she cherishes for life. At the end of the day learning is all about remembering one’s own experiences.
This methodology is supplemented with Teamwork, project methodology and interactive learning. This ensures that the classes are vibrant, cooperative, cheerful and overflowing with ideas.
