Great ToolKit to Bring Self-Organized Learning Environments to Your Community


The basic parameters of this approach are:
It is designed for children aged 8-12, who select their own groups of four to work in and also choose their own questions to explore.
Children can change groups anytime.
Children can learn from what other groups are doing and take the information to their own group.
Children can move around freely.
Children can have discussions within their groups and also with other groups.
Participants can tell their friends about their learning from SOLE.
There are a number of benefits which teachers, parents and students can derive from using SOLE at home, school or at after-school programs.
Children at home or school: Can take ownership of their learning, improve reading skills, creativity and problem-solving abilities, memory, interpersonal skills, develop trusting relations with their adults and teachers and be motivated to become life-long learners.
Educators and parents: Can get better at asking questions, understand what children are most interested in, develop connections at an equal level, encourage children by telling them about more ways to learn on their own.
At home: Parents can actively participate in their own learning, create a culture of curiosity, expand what kids have already learnt at school and strengthen their connection with children.
At school or after-school programs: Encourage children to learn independent thinking, experience more invigorated and experienced classrooms, learn through collaboration, create more intergenerational admiration and understanding.
