Learning through hands-on activities and reflection
Children need time and guidance to reflect on what they learn. In this way, they can forge connections to the world and deepen their understanding of it. Experiential learning is a vital part of the Victoria curriculum. It offers a rich way of learning that cultivates critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills.
Reflection is a crucial part of the learning process, so discussions with teachers following the students’ experiences help to draw out their thoughts and enrich their understanding about what they learned and how they can apply these lessons.
