Isn’t it sad that school students come to life only during recess ? And that they are forced to listen to boring classroom lectures all day, which kill their desire to learn ?
Learning pods can make learning fun and meaningful because they aren’t hampered by a rigid curriculum . Students are free to pursue their own interests because they aren’t being pressurised to cram in order to score more marks.
Students are eager to learn and grow, and teachers are keen to get the day started. Every session is exciting and makes everyone who attends a little happier because they have become smarter.
What is a positive learning culture?
A positive learning culture is inclusive and student-centered. High student involvement is made possible by the desire of both students and teachers to stretch themselves. Schools create a toxic learning environment, because students are treated as lazy children who need to be punished in order to maintain discipline.
