“Education should equip students to take a full and active part in shaping their future society” – observed the eminent educationist John Dewey, and which is also the guiding principle DPS Panipat City follows while formulating the curriculum. Hence, the school encourages learning through employment of a variety of teaching aids and techniques involving learners actively in the learning process. Thus, Experiential Learning, Learning by Doing and Multiple Intelligence Orientation are major components of the school curriculum in addition to the CBSE based syllabus and guidelines.
DPS Panipat City is the first learning institution in Haryana that bases its approach on the principles of the Multiple Intelligence framework of Dr. Howard Gardner, the well-renowned cognitive psychologist from Harvard University. The MI approach is backed by recent research on how children learn, and is truly responsive to the needs of the 21st century. This framework prepares the children to be creative, critical and divergent original thinkers who are really able ‘to think out of the box’.
Experiential Learning focuses on the learning process for the individual. In this, a student makes discoveries and experiments with knowledge himself instead of hearing or reading about others’ experiences. Though gaining of knowledge is an inherent process that occurs naturally, a genuine learning experience requires certain elements, and they are amply provided by our school.
DPS Panipat City is a proponent of Learning by Doing, rather than learning by passively receiving and ensures that each child is active, inquisitive and wants to explore. Hence, the focus of the school remains on project work, action learning, simulation and community based learning. The school is like a laboratory where children are encouraged to learn through experimentation, experience, clarify the key points and apply the lessons to get practical results.
