At Pathways, we believe that children are naturally curious and our teaching methodology encourages learning through inquiry. We aim to give students a broader, deeper, richer educational experience by recognizing each student’s strongest talents. We develop learner autonomy and take on the challenge of giving students varied learning experiences and opportunities to help them become competent, thinking and moral individuals.
Unique individuals can best develop their different active intelligences through experiential learning which fosters “learning through reflection on doing’. At Pathways, our learning pedagogy is “project” based so that students can actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper conceptual knowledge.
As stated by Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University, much of traditional education values a very limited range of abilities, centering only on literacy and numeracy. Different individuals have different aptitudes which is why, we at Pathways employ the Multiple Intelligences approach. This method distinguishes the different aptitudes within each student thus making learning more individualized and effective.
Learning should not only be restricted to classrooms. Pathways houses a special atrium in each academic building, aesthetically done with skylights and a glazed finish to enable infusion of natural light, making it a prominent place well suited for socializing and group learning. These atriums and other such informal spaces around the campus act as knowledge centers for students and faculty alike. The entire campus is Wi-Fi enabled so that students become aware from the outset that learning can and should be ‘Anywhere – Anytime’.
