OWN is a method where each day is full of discovery, play and reflection. A journey of direct learning where the student and the knowledge become one.
Own is a new learning method that has been created by PANA EDUCATION and SPREAD that integrates design thinking with learning to create a system where every day is a whole new experience! Where students become active learners, constantly feeling, thinking, doing and reflecting. It’s not about what we teach, it is about how students can truly learn!
OWN is a method where students can learn through action. Where students understand by doing. Grasp through exploration. Get off their chairs to get deeper into their subjects.
Every day is full of discovery, everything a stimulus! With a heightened awareness of phenomena all around, learning is an enjoyable game with personal success as its end goal! Everything that arises in the mind is accompanied by sensation. We thought what if we could take students on a journey of learning through sensory involvement and we found fresh answers. Learning must be about curiosity, it is experiencing. Listening and asking questions. About reflecting, thinking for oneself and finally making it once own. Asking your own questions that drive you to find your own answers. Making it easier for mentors and parents to gUide the process.
To create a brave new world of direct learning that is experiential, investigative and analytical where the student and the knowledge become one.
Now students will want to ask their own questions and will be guided to find their own answers and they can own learning, knowledge – own all the phenomena taking place all around them all the time.
The own method is a balanced mix of experiential Learning, investigative learning and analytical learning.
Experiential learning is involving and engaging. it makes students immerse, observe, Explore and enquire and in the process own the learning.
investigative Learning facilitates open enquiry and experimentation, Mistakes and learnings are shared confidently.
Analytical Learning simplifies concepts to their very essence for greater understanding. An analytical overview of active learning.
We have integrated design thinking, a method that is all about feeling, thinking and doing with the process of learning wherein students will collaborate, compete, play and learn, impacting every student.
Own methodology prepares students to retain knowledge and to makes her/him successful, a lifelong learner and an inspired human being!
Join us to discover and own, a new way of learning, of owning knowledge, success, the universe, every phenomenon around you and life.
Own the future. Own the choice. Own life itself!
