The ‘intelligence’ approach is an activity-oriented learning approach implemented at the lower primary level. In which the total learning curriculum has been presented in a total of 12 milestones through various activities. In all the ‘3’ groups, the child goes beyond the study and the role of the teacher decreases and the chances of self-learning increase.
Since the assessment takes place at each stage of the group work in a fully activity-based cognitive approach, there is no scope for a half-yearly or annual assessment. Pragya class, without fixed time hours, annual examinations, chok-board, daftar, ghanta and chok-tok, without a teaching method, creates a different pattern. So it will be able to reduce the amount of waste and procrastination. At the lower primary level, the latent strengths of the students can be traced, they can be nurtured in a constructive way, if the hand-trained student moves in the right direction, the credit for building a prosperous human resource goes to the education department. Let’s reduce for …..
Under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, intensive programs and projects are being carried out all over India for universalization of education. The issue of waste and procrastination directly touches on the universalization of primary education and pragmatic education is a welcome, anticipated and prevailing competitive time demand that provides a platform capable of nurturing students’ interests and nurturing their inner strengths by actually lowering the graph of waste and procrastination.
Pragya (knowledge through activity) is an innovative activity-oriented study approach implemented at an early stage at the lower primary level that is conducive to the above.
The purpose of the Pragya approach is to move in the direction of self-learning through the clarification of the concept of a student who looks clever only on the result sheet with the knowledge of Gokhanpatti in the age of competition and develops his creativity.
This innovative approach based on intensive efforts by Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Mission, Gujarat Primary Education Council, UNICEF, Mentoring Team and State Core Team will be very important to open new horizons of knowledge and establish new records of future India through human resource building. There is no harm in that.
What is the Pragya approach?
Pragya is an acronym for ‘Knowledge through Activity’. The name itself suggests that the entire education system here is activity based. ‘Pragya’ is an approach that focuses on the whole class of children, taking into account their individual differences and making the system conducive to education based on their ability-speed.
The pragya approach is quite different from the traditional method. There are classrooms but no benches, no blackboards, no bells ringing from time to time. Students do not have to bring educational materials and there is no traditional seating arrangement. Assessment is not a semi-annual or annual examination, it does not take place but there is an arrangement for the student to evaluate it on completion of a fixed group work. Here the pragya approach emerges quite differently than traditional education. In short, the assessment here is “without burden.
The ‘Pragya’ approach came into existence at an early stage i.e. in June 2010 in ‘Std-1, 2’ (both classes together) and up to a total of four Std. The total syllabus in the first class of Std. 1 and 2 has been integrated under the following sections.
 Mathematics and rainbow activities
A total of 15 milestones have been set for learning the syllabus of the above subjects. Under this, in each milestone, a total of 3 main topics and five sub-topics of each topic have been arranged for learning from various activities.
After the first student’s profile is prepared, his portfolio is prepared and T.L.M. From the middle of the no, he continues to learn by activity from the middle of the card according to his 0 milestone.
Student seating arrangements within the Pragya class are not as traditional as mentioned earlier. It will move forward by learning in the following 5 groups ….
Students have been given individual baskets to work on in each of the above groups and pictures of birds have been given to identify the different batches. Such as, Surkhab, Kalokoshi, Mor, Hollow, Chakli …..
In short, the pragya approach is an innovative approach that motivates a child to learn on his own, based entirely on activity. In which the role of the teacher becomes less and less for the student moving forward in the group. In the second stage the peer group completes a cycle of learning through self-study and self-assessment going beyond study. Going forward, a total of 12 milestones can be completed in less than a year and sent to the next class.
