Learning through Edutainment

Educational entertainment or edutainment is a concept that has been around since the 1970s, first developed in the western world. The term is associated with content designed to inculcate the interest of learning among children. The process has been used with considerable success in targeting social issues such as substance abuse, premature teenage pregnancy, HIV/AIDS and cancer. Beejak Seva Sansthan is trying to retain children in classrooms to arrest the increasing drop-out rates. In order to do so, it is looking in to the study habits of children in both private and public schools in Gaya. Field experiments have revealed that the level of interest in learning is considerably higher in students enrolled in private schools.

Model Curriculum for Learning

A school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that each school plans for its pupils. The national curriculum forms one part of the school curriculum. Schools are also required to make provision for a daily act of collective worship and must teach religious education to pupils at every key stage and sex and relationship education to pupils in secondary education.

A school should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. Schools are also free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of education. The model curriculum has been developed to create a foundation of lifelong learning among children.
