(CBSE) Prerana Portal to participate in PRERANA - An Experiential Learning Program

Approach and Methodology :

The methodology embraces a holistic approach to education, centred around joyful experiential learning. With a keen focus on well-defined learning objectives, the framework integrates and includes various activities like:

• Watching films
• Immersing in storytelling
• Participating, and learning about regional games
• Crafting working radio models
• Exposure to computer design skills
• Making portraits
• Observing water samples
• Delving into cutting-edge technological advancements like 3D printing, drones

Collaborative learning strategies, and advanced technologies, will ensure a dynamic and immersive educational experience. Community interaction is emphasized, creating real-world contexts for learning. Different mediums, including paintings, podcasts, blogs, 3-D printed models, and more, empower children to express their understanding in ways that resonate with their individual strengths.

The approach to Prerana underscores the importance of providing teachers with the necessary training and resources, implementing varied strategies, and fostering continuous improvement through reflection and feedback.

Exposure to activities in this programme will instil in the youngsters a sense of citizenship and pride in their nation, as well as a spirit of enterprise and entrepreneurship. This will foster respect for India's immense unity and diversity, as well as the ethos of "Vasudaiva Kutumbakam."

Some Exemplar Activities:

  • 1. Dhairya and Sahas Activity: When we hear about the heroes of our freedom struggle, our hearts are filled with pride about the bravery they displayed during the fight for independence. Their courage in the face of adversity, their willingness to confront danger, and their resolve to act with strength and determination made us a free country. Let us make portraits of Sardar Patel, Bhagat Singh, Ambedkar, Gandhi, etc. with rubik’s cubes, strings, bindi and stereographic projection using laser cutter machine and 3D printer.

  • 2. Parishram and Samarpan Activity: The Indian Independence struggle took almost 100 years from 1857 to1947, and this took a great amount of hard work and perseverance from people all over the country. Making hand spun cotton Khadi fabric played an important role in rejecting the British manufactured fabric and being fully self-reliant and Swadeshi. Let us learn to spin our own thread from cotton using a box Charkha.
