Computer Based Learing
“Computer Based Learning” is a process of learning that is not executed in the traditional manner one would find in the educational environment. Rather than the conventional classroom and instructor or professor setting, computer based training uses software applications installed in computers. In effect, the student is trained by the teacher with the help of computers. Oftentimes, this method of learning can be much more effective than the practice of teaching and learning in classrooms because the student can set his or her own speed of learning.
This learning technique is provided by us in a spacious computer laboratory, equipped with latest branded computers that are specifically ordered to meet the needs of school students. All Dhyanahitha High School campuses are “WI-FI” enabled with networked computers for single point monitoring of the student’s progress and his interaction with computers. Our labs can accommodate every student in a class with one computer and the students work one-on-one along with the teachers.
Learing by Doing
There is really only one way to learn how to do something and that is to do it. If you want to learn to throw a football, drive a car, build a mousetrap, design a building, cook a stir-fry, or be a management consultant, you must have a go at doing it. Throughout history, youths have been apprenticed to masters in order to learn a trade. We understand that learning a skill means eventually trying your hand at the skill. When there is no real harm in simply trying we allow novices to “give it a shot.”
Parents usually teach children in this way. They don’t give a series of lectures to their children to prepare them to walk, talk, climb, run, play a game, or learn how to behave. They just let their children do these things. We hand a child a ball to teach him to throw. If he throws poorly, he simply tries again. Parents tolerate sitting in the passenger seat while their teenager tries out the driver’s seat for the first time. It’s nerve-wracking, but parents put up with it, because they know there’s no better way.
When it comes to school, however, instead of allowing students to learn by doing, we create courses of instruction that tell students about the theory of the task without concentrating on the doing of the task. It’s not easy to see how to apply apprenticeship to mass education. So in its place, we lecture.
