Delighted are the students when working on practical projects which is normally considered messy and waste of time, but most thoughtful parents or the mentor would not feel the same ever. There are ample reasons. I am also a person who wish to share that the lessons every day completed will tend to look beyond and gather more information.
One of the recent study states that the social-emotional skills needs to be a component that sees improvements as the years pass by. You would also tend to look into the child capabilities over the skills like communication, collaboration, empathy, solution provider and much more. The whole aspect of education is a merge of soft skills, hard skills and intellectuals which cannot be denied. Even for the grown up children demands an advisory session which will carve their talents and focus on the growth.
What is exactly required is the real time and the project-based learning which sours up the soft skills of the individual. There are many platforms for the child to build the social-emotional skills and creating such opportunities would become the responsibility of the parents and the school. Well, when we say the practical environment and children engaging themselves will stand to build the skill.
Permit and provide access: This is a wonderful strategy to allow student to collaborate, choose their own group and provide the complete takeover of organising and addressing the concerned. It could also be a public address and when handling by the student themselves things are achieved on the upfront.
Forgive any apologies: When playing the real way might seem organising things could easily be messed up and there might be a lot of complains over the unorganised and shabby work. It is also inevitable to maintain good spirits but it needs to be thought its fine and accept the mess to have them corrected.
Inquire and Guide: It is a great idea to check with the children about the challenges entered in the real time execution and finding ways to help the child improve over the diversified challenges which could be academically, socially or emotionally. I once took up the responsibility to guide over and as I prompted few questions like, “What best you liked over the project? Which was the difficult task? How time consuming was the complete process?” this gave me a good insight to guide them better.
Provide a platform: Exhibiting the uniqueness of the student does motivate the group and it becomes a learning pace for other children to adhere the talents. “I did see all students backed with soft skills as they start their schooling, to my wonder a child possessed cool confidence and rightly chosen to the leadership role, she did inspire many of her age children”, so let’s always provide the opportunity.
Motivate and Encourage: One thing that could directly provide immense motivation is by giving a positive feedback and it does encourage to do better each time and always.
“I encountered with a child who was overwhelmed, as his product creation has been praised by his mentors”,
He is required to move further and rightly my guess turns to reality when he won laurels.
