Life wide Learning

Learning through Life is part of the worldview of Amal Multidisciplinary Group, encouraging students to take part in the living, breathing fabric of real life of environment and community, to contribute and to influence, to go beyond the school walls into the public space and break the boundaries of classroom and time.

To carry out Learning through Life, the student acquires skills of technological-digital literacy, identifying and assessing learning opportunities, independent learning, management and organization of learning, and the metacognitive ability of analyzing learning methods.

Because independent, flexible learning emphasizes development of 21st century skills, it also trains the learner for the challenges of future employment.

One of the ways that Amal assists teachers focusing on identifying and offering Learning through Life opportunities is to provide valuable learning practices and technologies, including through MOOC that Amal developed for public use – an online, independent learning course on learning practices for real life.

This practice, which also includes gaming – has been internationally recognized by UNESCO as one of the best mobile learning practices in the world, see map.
