Integral Approach of Learning

Perspective plays a very important role in everybody’s life. From the perspective of a child; school, sports and homework, is an important part of his/her life. In the case of parents and teachers, it is their child’s growth and overall development.

What is this ‘Integral approach of Learning’?

Everyone has different perspectives on life. Teaching too, must be carried out, keeping this in mind. Effective teaching; is one that integrates the child’s perspective and the teachers perspective in a way that’s understandable and easily implemented, this is known as the Integral Approach to learning.

Why the ‘Integral approach of Learning?’

The definition of success grows broader, as children become more aware of themselves and the wide range of options before them. Each child nowadays, has something unique that they are passionate about and want to pursue for the rest of their life.

Hence, teaching methods should make them feel included and motivated. This helps them remain enthusiastic towards learning.

The integral approach of learning helps with this; it requires a concentrated involvement of the mentor in the child’s life.

When parents and teachers engage and help children in their activities, a subconscious message of support and approval is passed to the child.This in turn makes the children very self-confident.

How to go about implementing this?

Children, parents, and teachers must form a common understanding on how their approach will be and how that will help in achieving their goals.

Good involvement and communication can be achieved through this common ground of understanding.

Just like involvement, free time too, is an important aspect in this approach of learning. When children are given free time to play, they learn how to play in groups, socialize, and make decisions. They become more compassionate and caring, learning to bond and work as team, towards common goals.

Every student wants to contribute something to their class.
An accepting and motivating environment, when fostered will greatly boost the child’s all-round development.

The Integral approach of learning and teaching is the best way to achieve this. As it is said,
“A great Teacher is the one who can impart wisdom and knowledge; in a way that is easily understood by the student”.
