THE LEARNING: OUR APPROACH

Learning is fun. What'smore fun than a school learning at EduASIA? We do it in great way for students to connect what they are learning in school, with the outside world.

Our commitment towards Quality Education is of prime importance. Education has undergone a tremendous change with the passage of time. A unidirectional teaching method is being increasingly substituted by a multidirectional group workshop method. Here the teacher becomes the group facilitator, nurturing students without the phobia of examinations and homework. At this juncture our institutes use various teaching aids and teaching methods which enable understanding capability in concepts with relevant practicality or application. New strategies and ideas are frequently exchanged between teachers to improve the performance of the students and also plan for the current and future sessions. The Edu ASIA Team works in association with several resource person in focused areas such as teacher-exchange and development programmes. The use of technological tools in the delivery of the curriculum is stepping up as our defining strength.

MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE THEORY:
A LEARNING TOOL

The Multiple Intelligences research of Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University provides a new insight into student-centred learning. Much of traditional education values a very limited range of abilities, centring on literacy and numeracy. However different individuals have different aptitudes. By using the strongest aptitudes or 'intelligences' as a starting point we can educate more effectively by teaching different students the same topic in different ways according to their particular 'intelligences'. In a class situation, this approach allows students to benefit from each other's strengths and to develop their competence in their weaker as in their stronger 'intelligences'. Gardner identified eight 'intelligences':
