At Kathmandu BernHardt Secondary School & College, education isn’t just about textbooks and exams; it’s an exhilarating journey of discovery, innovation, and empowerment. In this blog, we’ll delve into three exciting facets of our educational approach that set us apart: game-based learning, global education, and inquiry-based learning. These pillars shape our commitment to nurturing well-rounded, globally aware, and critical-thinking students who are ready to conquer the world.
- Game-Based Learning: Learning Through Play
Imagine a classroom where learning feels like play. That’s precisely what game-based learning at Kathmandu BernHardt is all about. We believe that education should be engaging and fun, and games are the perfect vehicle for that.
What is game-based learning?
Game-based learning is a teaching method that uses the power of games to define and support learning outcomes. Games can help students learn new concepts, develop important skills, and practice what they’ve learned in a fun and interactive way.
How do we use game-based learning at Kathmandu BernHardt?
We implement game-based learning in a variety of ways. For example, we use educational games to teach students about different subjects, such as math, science, and history. We also use games to help students develop important skills, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork.
Here are some specific examples of how we use game-based learning in our classrooms:
In math class, we use the game Prodigy to help students learn about math concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. In science class, we use the game Minecraft to help students learn about different scientific concepts, such as the solar system, the human body, and the water cycle. In history class, we use the game Civilization VI to help students learn about different historical periods and civilizations.
There are many benefits to game-based learning. For example, games can help students to:
- Be more engaged and motivated in their learning
- Learn new concepts and skills more effectively
- Develop important skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork
- Be more creative and innovative
- Have more fun in school
- Global Education: Crafting Global Citizens
In a world that’s more interconnected than ever, fostering global citizens is our mission. Our dedicated teachers are not just educators; they’re mentors guiding students toward a deeper understanding of the world. Through a holistic approach to global education, students explore cultures, traditions, and global issues.
From interactive cultural exchange programs to virtual journeys around the world, we provide our students with opportunities to embrace diversity, develop empathy, and become responsible global citizens. We believe that understanding the world is the first step to changing it for the better.
Here are just a few examples of how we foster global citizens at Kathmandu BernHardt:
We offer a variety of courses and programs that focus on different cultures and global issues, such as Global Perspectives and International Students Club. We provide students with opportunities to participate in cultural exchange programs and virtual journeys around the world. We encourage students to develop their global citizenship skills through hands-on projects and service-learning opportunities.
We believe that global education is essential for preparing students to succeed in the 21st-century world. We are committed to providing our students with the knowledge and skills they need to be informed and engaged global citizens.
- Inquiry-Based Learning: Curiosity as the Catalyst
Inquiry-based learning is a powerful teaching method that can help students develop the skills they need to succeed in the 21st-century world. At Kathmandu BernHardt Secondary School & College, inquiry-based learning is the heartbeat of our classrooms. We believe that curiosity is the catalyst for learning, and we encourage our students to question, investigate, and think critically about the world around them.
Our teachers craft lessons that revolve around current events, real-world problems, and hands-on experiences. This helps our students to develop the skills they need to thrive in an ever-evolving world.
Inquiry-based learning is not just about memorizing facts. It’s about equipping students with the tools to question, analyze, and innovate.
Here are just a few examples of how we use inquiry-based learning at Kathmandu BernHardt:
In science class, our students are taken to the science lab and conduct experiments to test a hypothesis. In history class, they research a current event and then write a persuasive essay arguing their position.
In accounting class, our students are asked to work together to solve a real-world problem, such as designing a budget for a school event. Through inquiry-based learning, our students develop the critical thinking skills they need to succeed in any field they choose. They also learn how to be lifelong learners, always eager to explore new ideas and solve new challenges.
