Methods that are beneficial to both student and teacher
Teaching effectively is as important as grasp or learning effectively.
As students have a wide range of methods to learn from, some methods are time-consuming and tedious on the part of the teacher who has a fixed time period to teach a particular topic.
With such constraints, the method of teaching and learning must be beneficial to the student in order to grasp the lesson completely; as well as the teacher who has to ensure the participation and learning of every student.
Methods which are both beneficial to the child and user-friendly and time-effective for the teacher are:-
1) Demonstration method: the information is gathered and organized. This is followed by the analyses of the data. Based on the analyses, the conclusion or rule is derived.
The student’s role is to get data to test the derived rule. By the time the students have tested the rule, they have also practiced the application of the solution a number of times.
The repetitive testing of the data makes the concept more concrete in the minds of the students. The teacher only needs to guide the students in case of any errors.
2) Math-Lab method: as nature and our natural surroundings are the best teachers, the abacus math for kindergarten method makes maths concepts easy to understand and apply.
The student is given concrete objects or information that helps arrive at the conceptual idea.
As the natural surroundings are our laboratory, gardens, school grounds, yards, and fields are comfortable and interesting places to put the theories to the test.
The scientific and mathematical investigation is the student’s weapon to draw conclusions for the tests. RSVP now to give your child an opportunity to connect with maths in such interesting ways.
3) Technology: the most user-friendly and time-saving method for the teacher and student. Technology is a one-time investment. The teacher can easily substitute topics which work well with pictorial representation.
The teacher can use a camera to record the student’s mathematical work. During the activities, the conclusion and solutions derived by the child can be recorded by the digital camera
which helps the child to reflect upon his work and also gives the parents an idea of how far their child is able to understand and apply ideas.
‘What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing’. Aristotle has captured the essence of learning in the best way. RSVP now and see these methods being put to the test.
