Object-based Learning Classes
Suitable for Years 4 and Up
Object-based learning can offer something to all learners, whatever their learning style. Using objects can enhance student experiences and help achieve the following:
• Encourage group and class discussion
• Provide a direct link to the past
• Engage the senses, especially touch and sight
• Develop skills—observation, inquiry, evaluation, group work, speaking, listening and deduction.
In our object-based learning classes students have the opportunity to have a hands-on encounter with original and replica objects which has been shown to stimulate curiosity, deepen understanding, improve retention of knowledge, unlock the imagination and promote social learning. Classes are offered as a full 1-hour experience or as a 30-minute add-on to enhance a workshop or tour.
1-hour Object-Based Learning Class - $15 per student
30- Minute Object-Based Learning Class - $10 per student
