Why is experiential learning good for your kid's cognitive development?

The benefits of experiential learning for children are unparalleled. It is undeniable that the more you keep your children engaged the better they learn. Especially in an age when the average attention span of a child is constantly decreasing. Experiential learning allows children to think laterally, logically and practically while facing real life situations while managing to keep their attention for longer periods of time.

Here are some advantages of experiential learning:

  • Increases Engagement Levels – There is no doubt that children are much more interested and engaged when they are participating in activities. In this manner, learning through experiences or by actually doing things rather than just reading about them helps the children engage their abilities to their full potential.
  • Bridges Gap Between Theory and Practice – ‘Learning by doing’ is a system that immediately puts thought into action – theory into practice.
  • Accelerates Learning – Experiential Learning uses critical thinking, problem solving and decision making to make the learning process more effective. This in turn accelerates the learning process.
  • Enables Personalised Learning – Experiential learning takes the learning beyond the classroom. The participants set their own learning pace which enables a personalised learning experience.
  • Provides Accurate Assessment – All sorts of exams can be written and passed with flying colours, but the true test of what has been learnt is application. Experiential learning provides a system where you can assess the students through application – which is after all the truest assessment.

How do kids learn and achieve their true potential?

Every single child in the world has the potential to be brilliant; they all have the same brain and the same promises. Whether the child will be a Nobel Prize winner or a chef or a cricketer is decided by about 1.4 kg of the same grey and white matter, and the same brain cells.

The achievement of this potential and promise lies entirely in the hands of how such potential is nourished, honed and encouraged. Children are filled with potential to be great and when given the right opportunities they can learn and achieve their full potential.

Recognising the potential or talent isn’t enough – it has to be nurtured and developed. Whether geniuses are born or made is a question that stumps us all – National Geographic’s show Mega Icons on Disney+ Hotstar can help answer that as it talks about those who actually did recognise and achieve their true full potential.

At After My School we provide a nurturing environment for all students hoping to achieve their full academic potential. With the help of our Learning Packages.

In these tests, we evaluate the gaps in the child’s learning. Our second method is Chapter Wise Tests. These are tests created by AfterMySchool to check the child’s understanding of a chapter.

Exam Preparation

Exams are a source of stress for parents and students. While it is impossible to get rid of the stress, we can reduce it.

Exams are a source of stress for parents and students. While it is impossible to get rid of the stress, we can reduce it. AfterMySchool does this for CBSE, ICSE and SSC students. AfterMySchool provides access to experts that helped write the papers. We use model papers prepared by professionals to prepare children for the real exam.

Feedback

Assessing a child is not enough. The parents of the child must also stay informed on their child’s progress. 

Assessing a child is not enough. The parents of the child must also stay informed on their child’s progress. For this reason, we create Monthly Feedback Reports. These reports keep parents informed as much as they can be. We share the Academic Plan of the student with the parents. This keeps parents aware of the child’s education. We also have a dedicated Relationship r to help bridge the gap between parent and tutor.
