Method of Unschooling

Children learn everyday from everywhere.

What is Unschooling?

Less theory, more projects and practical is the mantra. 

 

Unschooling is a broad phrase that includes a variety of names, concepts, and practises that are specific to each individual or family. At its foundation, unschooling provides youngsters with the chance — and, for many new unschoolers, the challenge — to pursue their own interests rather than following the criteria and curricula set forth by school boards or other groups. Unlike the standard homeschool model, which frequently tries to replicate the classroom or follow a set curriculum with parents acting as teachers, unschooling puts the children in charge. When needed, adults, including (but not necessarily) parents, typically offer support, aid, and guidance.

 

Unschooling encourages personalised learning by allowing students to choose what they want to learn and how they want to acquire it. The parent's responsibility is to provide an environment that encourages the learner's inherent curiosity. This could include activities and support that encourage this curiosity to discover new things.

 

Unschooling is based on the fact that children are natural learners. So provide them the tools they need to explore the world until they reach their adolescent years. Once they've discovered their actual passion, they can pursue it through an apprenticeship, a freelance project, or by taking private tests to apply to colleges (NIOS and IGCSE)

 

Unschool kids don't waste their time. They learn the alphabets, basic mathematics, democracy, and international wars in the same way that conventional school students do, but in a very different way. They're pursuing Self-Directed Learning, which means they may choose what they want to study (coding, music, dance, filmmaking, cooking, or even daydreaming) and from whom they want to learn ( books, facilitators, parents, internet, internships or travels). There is no syllabus, no timetable, and no set of expectations.
