The journey on the road of self-learning for a student is quite thrilling and fun but it requires facilitation. For a student that has never used computer, there are certain barriers to entry i.e. English language, typing and basic maneuvering. While these arenas are addressed, in parallel our foundation curriculums based on project based learning (PBL) are executed. These innovative PBL courses actually have an overall positive impact as they stimulate the student to use computer more often, hence accelerating his learning.
To tap the child’s creative potential, a carefully designed step-by-step approach is required. This approach needs to be directed, yet at the same it must have enough room to allow the student to explore his creativity. The curriculum for this self-learning pedagogy is designed by Khud’s education specialists.
The stepping stone curriculum is Graphic Designing (GD). Irrespective of one’s age, any student – under the careful facilitation of local teacher – can follow the GD curriculum. Through numerous short projects students develop familiarity with GIMP software, making collages, using paint, makings posters and photo editing. Thanks to its vibrancy and openness, many students explore their creativity and aesthetics. As they are also required to research and download photographs from internet, the GD curriculum adamants students’ confidence in using computer. Usually the GD curriculum takes 2-3 months to cover, and it’s one of the most popular courses in Khud partner schools.
