APT prepare the teachers to use child centered Pedagogies in classroom transaction and to take up Action Research for a continuous learning and professional development.
Students’ ability to acquire information virtually anywhere and at any time is a game changer. Students are no longer wholly dependent on the teacher to gather information. But, the teacher is a critical resource for directing students’ learning efforts and helping students to learn independently.
21st century learning suggests a very different kind of schooling. Not all knowledge is transmitted in the school and learning is not exclusive to the classroom. Arguably, most of the learning that occurs today occurs outside the classroom. Therefore, the focus must shift to giving students the tools to learn. This vision of education recognizes that much of the learning that occurs is outside of the teacher’s control. “If we look carefully, most of those changes in the way people acquire information are occurring outside the schools.” (p. 5, Collins and Halverson, 2009). Technology has enabled students to take control of their own learning and much of that process occurs outside the classroom. Hence it is very important to develop and encourage Self Regulated Learning among the students which can lead them a sustained and lifelong learning.
The first years of life are critical years of human life. The rate of development in these years are more rapid than at any other stage of development. Research in neuro-science confirms the importance of the early years in a child’s life particularly since 90% of brain development has already taken place by the time a child is six years of age. Research also indicates that the development of the brain is influenced not only by health, nutrition and quality of care but also by the quality of the psycho-social environment the child is exposed to in these early years.
Hence we introduce a unique Pre-School Education in the name of "EDU-CARE PRE-SCHOOL" based on APT EDU-CARE Academic Framework
