Knowledge by Identity
One of your books has provided a perfect tool for him to learn to identify animals and human relationship via the illustrations – using both English and Bengali. He started this identification process via the sounds that each of the animals makes 🙂
He is also pretty high on musical intelligence and dances with the metronome and all genres of music.
This experiment has added an interesting food for thought to our pedagogy research on Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Education system where ‘Knowledge by Identity’ is one of the advanced cornerstones.
Interestingly, every year, we submit an action research report on observed practices centered on Integral Education to DSIR (Dept. of Scientific and Industrial Research, Delhi) on behalf of Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust.
So thank you and your team @ Pratham Books!!
