“We are approaching a new age of synthesis. Knowledge cannot be merely a degree or a skill... it demands a broader vision, capabilities in critical thinking and logical deduction without which we cannot have constructive progress”
During elementary years, children learn skills related to reading, writing, good work habits and thinking skills. With time, they start learning about self-esteem, integrity, individual responsibility and self-management. They build basic skills that are necessary in everyday life. It is necessary for children to learn how to make decisions, solve problems, listen, speak, think in a creative way and reason when required.
Considering the importance of skills in shaping the future of kids, Skill Development has been included as a key element in ileap’s after-school program. We wish to encourage students to think creatively, evaluate critically and communicate freely. We want them to learn how to develop various skills by turning daily, mundane activities into golden opportunities for learning. As skills and abilities are the most valuable assets for children, we have designed each activity with well defined objectives, encouraging them to explore and discover.
Our skill development program emphasizes on process and discovery-based learning. We offer carefully constructed lesson plans and age appropriate modules to develop skills like analyzing, classifying, comparing and contrasting, defining, describing, evaluating, explaining, problem solving, tracking cause and effect, designing, imagining, improvising, innovating, communicating and collaborating.
