Activity-based learning describes a range of pedagogical approaches to teaching. At Stepping Stones High School we truly believe in these teaching tenets. Its core premises include the requirement that learning should be based on doing hands-on experiments and activities.
Children are active learners rather than passive recipients of information. The sensory experience and action make the learning better and more impactful.
There is an old Chinese proverb that says :
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” This holds true, especially with regards to activity-based learning techniques.
Steppers imbibe everything that is taught via exploration and experimentation, be it grammar, history, math or science. This child-centred approach has instilled confidence in the children and has had a positive impact on their communication skills. Besides the smart science labs which encompass the Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Psychology labs. Stepping Stones has added modern aids ensuring the ability to teach all the multiple intelligences.
At Steppers we have ‘The Fun Lab’ a unique venture. It is an extension of academic concepts. A fun time which develops the motor nerves along with re-enforcing learning? Field trips to silk culture farms, blind school and dog hostels enhance the sensitivity of children. The school has “Sparkling Steppers” for the academically challenged children and the endeavour is making a great difference in their lives. Communication skills and creative writing gives the personality a cutting edge. Steppers have ample opportunities to hone their skills. Model United Nation programmes gives Steppers the global exposure and the confidence to host their very own MUN in the school premises for the region.
