Laboratory work is considered essential in promoting students’ learning of science and of scientific enquiry. What the students perceive as important to learn from a regular laboratory exercise is probably affected by the teacher’s objectives. This explanatory single case study includes use of a palette of methods, such as pre- and post-interviews & observations. Our results point to the importance of teacher involvement to help students understand what to look for, how to do it and why. Especially teacher–student interactions during lab work seemed to influence what students perceived as important to learn. In the laboratory exercise in this case, the teacher helped the students to observe and to use their observations in their explanations. Not only what the teacher says, but also how the teacher acts is important to help students understand what to learn from a laboratory exercise.
Physics is an experimental science. The Theoretical concepts & relationships taught in the lecture part of the course describe the general nature and behavior of real phenomena. They were, discovered by careful observation and thoughtful analysis. Accordingly, the Physics Laboratory has the following purposes and goals
Here at Vidhan, the general purposes of Biology Laboratory is :-
Computers have been used in higher education for over thirty years both as a subject of study in their own right and as a tool to assist in the learning process within other disciplines. They have also been used as a means of delivering educational material and for on-line assessment. Computer Studies or Electronic Data Processing and these were intended for the computing specialist, who would start their careers as programmers or systems analysts. Computer Science has established itself firmly as a discipline in most universities and in such courses the emphasis is on the study of computer systems themselves.
A library can be considered a store – house of knowledge. In dictionaries the word “library” has been defined as “a building or room containing a collection of books”. A library renders a great service to the society. There are mainly two sections in a library. They are the Lending Section and the Reference Section. Any student can borrow books from the lending section. Students too can use the reference section. They are allowed to enter the section. They can takedown notes from the books. There is also a section in a library where one read books calmly and quietly. Here any one can do his or her studies under a calm and quiet environment. Some students find it very difficult to do their studies at their homes due to various reasons. This section is particularly useful for such students.
Your preschooler is having a blast finger-painting with a mix of colors. Trying to be encouraging, you ask her, "What are you making?" and she shrugs. Until you mentioned it, she hadn't given it any thought. Little kids are masters of the moment -- they love the way it feels when they smear paint on paper, how it looks when they sprinkle glitter, and even the soft sound a brush makes as it crosses the page. Fostering creativity won't just increase your child's chances of becoming the next Picasso. You're also helping him develop mentally, socially, and emotionally, says Ecklund-Flores. Creating art may boost young children's ability to analyze and problem-solving. And children who feel able to experiment and to make mistakes feel free to invent new ways of thinking, which extends well beyond the craft room.
As a vehicle for memory, music just can't be beat. It is one of the greatest benefits for music education. If you ever learned something using a song, you know that once you have learned it, it is almost impossible to forget. The song gets stuck in your head and stays with you forever.
