Learn through Observation : Master the art of observing
This signature program of WGS was organised for the students of Grade II and Grade III on August 11TH, 2018. The panel discussion was conducted amongst the parents and teachers to benefit the students by being on the same page, after sharing experiences from either side. It was guided by the experienced guest speaker Ms. Malathi Balasubramanian, a renowned educationist for about 30 years, currently serving as a freelance communication consultant and trainer in English for corporate and educational institutions and was moderated by our Academic Director Sarada ma’am.
The topics for the discussion was “Learn throughObservation : Master the art of observing”. We need to train our senses toimprove our observations.
The whole point was how to sharpen, focus and make children aware about the importance of observation, and how we can observe our kids and steer them with the right guidance that is , when to reinforce and when to give alternate perspective. This free-flowing session brought out many insights. A parent rightly explained difference between notice and observation.
The questions asked in the discussion were:
1. How observant are we?
2. Do we reinforce the learning for life?
3. Do we get confused over conflicting behaviours?
The discussion ended on the note that we have to beob servant and let children learn through observation while enjoying freedom toexpress his/ her thoughts.
It was an amazing session indeed.
We are so happy to see panelist parents did research and came with veryrelevant explanations and suggestions.
Together with parents we wish to contribute these techniques in students’ lives proactively and not leave it for chance.
Thanks to the expert, parents and teachers for taking it up and making it a success!
