“Education is, helping a child to realize his potentialities”
To make learning a multi-sensory experience it is important to explore innovative ways of instructions. At Mother Mary’s it is our constant endeavour to go beyond routine text book teaching.
- Child Centered Learning Techniques coupled with C.C.E. have been implemented at all levels.
- Smart class rooms that enhance presentations and understanding has been introduced at all levels. Though today almost every school uses this medium for teaching, our school differs in customizing the modules to suit the needs of the learners thereby making learning a meaningful and joyful experience. This is aided with class room response system, peer reviews, interactive lectures to develop prior knowledge and integrate new knowledge using audio-visual aid. Graphics, live action videos and animations allow learners to learn by seeing. Animations are used to illustrate concept and ideas that cannot be created and captured in real life.
- “Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I may remember, Involve me and I learn”. Activity based learning / learning by doing is our forte which give them hands on experience.
- An open forum is provided to the students, where they could come forward and express their views on a given topic under the guidance of a teacher. Regular classes, help the students to overcome their inhibitions and develop a flair for speaking.
