Two-day workshop on learning, thinking and leadership skills for NGO's trainers held in Jaipur
Jaipur-based SMILE-NGO organised a two-day training of trainers on learning, thinking skills and leadership skills recently for capacity building of its field functionaries, in which the sessions of pedagogy, critical and creative thinking, problem solving skills, and leadership skills were held.

In the workshop, learning was conceptualised as a process that starts with imparting experience followed by removal of difficulties through a support system of teachers and fast learner peers, codification of constructed knowledge through analysis and the process culminating into practice of the learnt material to internalise the knowledge. 

The highlight of the training was that an experience of origami was imparted in which support for learning was created by the peers and it was subjected to five-step process which was summarised through a flowchart. A rhythmic poem was created to remember the process as an active and working memory input. Also, the origami products were converted into a dynamic word-pocket chart for vocabulary building.

Critical thinking skill and problem solving skill were explained through concept matrices and their process analysis was dome. The sessions on divergent thinking and brainstorming were held for idea generation. The higher order thinking skills were taken up through an activity sheet. The leadership skills were demonstrated as a part of life skills education of children in rural Jaipur

The NGO is engaged in educating women and children, empowering them with vocational skills, doing recreational and fun activities, and helping them in their grooming and personality development of deprived children in urban and rural Jaipur.
