‘The Objective of Education Is Learning, Not Teaching’

In the educational process, students should be offered a wide variety of ways to learn, among which they could choose or with which they could experiment. They do not have to learn different things the same way. They should learn at a very early stage of “schooling” that learning how to learn is largely their responsibility — with the help they seek but that is not imposed on them.

The goal of TIPS Center for Learning is to change the world, one child at a `time. We believe that true learning takes place when a student has an opportunity to discover on their own through a hands-on, experiential, learning model. By allowing children to be engaged in a learning process that excites, energizes, and exposes them to a wide variety of skills and concepts, they will discover a path that will enable them to have a more productive education.

The learning environment is based on the theory that knowledge is not shared, but rather constructed within each individual through either inductive or deductive reasoning. The presentation of content is not as important as the discovery of the underlying patterns and concepts that constructed the content. The TIPS classroom is a student centered learning environment. Activities are designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity and to equip students with the skills to become independent learners. Structured inquiry, critical thinking, activities in which students may learn through experience are used in the classroom. The teacher is a facilitator of the learning process.

MUN

This prepares them to be unbiased and well informed leader of tomorrow and understand the global issues and their implications today!
