When students learn through a theme, they are learning in context. This not only helps students understand what they are learning (and why they are learning it). Consequently, this helps students remember what they have learned. She also talked about “The Theory of Multiple Intelligences” by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner, that people have different abilities and talents. He called them the “intelligence and he identified eight of them:
Theme-based learning integrates different learning areas and skills. Because of this variety, this thematic learning approach can incorporate different bits of intelligence and cater better to children with different learning needs. The idea of Activity-Based Teaching and Learning is rooted in the fact that children are active learners rather than passive recipients of information only. If the child is provided with the opportunity to explore on his/her own and provided an optimum learning environment, then the learning becomes joyful and long-lasting. The workshop was an enriching and motivating interactive session. It was highly appreciated by all the facilitators.
