Learning becomes more effective when it is combined with activity and fun. Children learn better when they see goodness around them (inspiration) as well as when they set examples for themselves (introspection). That is why knowledge combined with activity and interaction ensures superior and long lasting erudition. Children learn not by what they are told, but what they ‘feel’ within themselves after they have been exposed to that learning. We at Fly Higher India include experiential learning tasks in our programs and group workshops for children. This not only facilitates activity-assisted acquiring, it is a good platform for building social skills and enhancing the social quotient (SQ) of the child. This helps them to interact with peers and offers opportunity to learn from other students besides teachers.
