WHY DO CHILDREN NEED TUITION FOR SCIENCE BUT NOT FOR VIDEO GAMES?
The way children learn is different from adults. They don’t reach for the manual before operating TV. They learn by doing, by interacting with the world around them. The Butterfly Fields interactive models are designed around how children learn. Butterfly Fields has developed its own ‘Hands-on-Learning’ methodology most suited to the changing educational needs. It has been refined many times over by testing it with those that matter the most – more than 9,00,000 children from 9,000+ schools. It has 6 steps.
Step 1: DISCOVER – The students get to know the properties of each material, that they will use to build the material. This helps relate to the world around them.
Step 2: BUILD – The students build the model using the material with the guidance of the teacher and a story board. This helps develop the skill of ‘hand-mind’ coordination.
Step 3: UNDERSTAND – The students use the model to get a practical understanding of the concept. This process helps them develop analytical thinking abilities.
Step 4: EXPLORE – The students explore different ‘what if’ scenarios using the models. This helps develop creative, imaginative abilities.
Step 5: CONNECT – The students understand how the concept is present in real life. This helps develop skills for practical application.
Step 6: REVISE – The student revises the concept using the concept map.This helps remember the concept for exams and thereafter.
