Project Xplore is intended for Children age group of 6 to 14, to support the integration of soft skill values into their attitudes and behaviour.

Our project is based on simple theory that every child is smart and intelligent enough to reach Holistic development. The basics of this theory are tested and widely used by various educational institutions and it’s famous as theory of Multiple Intelligence by Prof. Harvard Gardner and Lateral Thinking by Prof. Edward De Bono. Theory of Multiple Intelligence states that there are nine different types of Intelligence and a person could be good in more than one intelligence and could be less good in others.

We will achieve holistic development by exposing them to various simulation activities based on Multiple Intelligence, by observing them on the basis of integrating teachers, parents and students and providing  them insight into his ways of learning and areas of expertise.


The Toolkit helps to reinforce the positive values that derive from the fundamental principles of human life. The human values promoted by the Toolkit are: Communication, Leadership, Team building, Problem solving, Cooperation, Respect, Fairness, Inclusion, Respect for diversity, Responsibility, Acceptance & etc.
Each and every session or activity is designed and divided in two parts this called Action and Reflection. So, in first half student will do action or play the games and in next half they will come together in a group and reflect on their game. In reflection part, they will discuss on four main agenda

• What they have learned from this game or why we have played this game.
• What mistake we have done individually and as a group too.
• What strategy we should make for next game or solution for the problem.
• Where I will apply this learning in my life.

 
After intra group discussion, all we do inter group discussion and they will share their ideas. This will make students more confident in speaking, give them chance to perform in different aspects of game, they will share feelings/thoughts/ideas, student will learn to give chance to others so they will perform and improve themselves and etc. To make it more constructive and for future reference to students, we have developed one tool called Reflective sheet. This sheet is self-assessment kind of sheet, after every game individual will feel this Reflective sheet. Why is it important to educate children about soft skills or Social skills?

• To encourage the development of self-esteem and active participation.
• To reinforce positive behaviour
• Empowering children


Activities in the Project Xplore children learn to experience, through games. They will face different real life Situations where they have to take the decision and get the best solution and face the problem constructively. Based on these concrete experiences, children discuss, as a group, why respect for diverse solution by all participants, inclusion and acceptance are important and then propose actions to put these values into practice in their daily lives.
Activities in the Project Xplore provide children with the opportunity to develop practical skills for dealing in real life situations. Children learn how to recognize different problems and attitudes and to propose solutions that are more inclusive and respectful of diversity.
The positive values and attitudes that children develop through the Project Xplore activities will hopefully accompany them into adulthood and this helps to build a society that is more respectful of human rights.


Why is the Group Discussion essential?
• Development of positive attitudes and make them confident.
• Give chance indivisual student to share their ideas with group.
• Development of self-esteem
• Increased participation
• Stronger sense of responsibility


Multiple Intelligence
Background
Learners – and individuals in general – can be described and categorized in a variety of ways. In 1983, Howard Gardner, a well-known psychologist and the creator of the “Multiple Intelligences (MI) Theory”, suggested that all individuals have personal intelligence profiles that consist of combinations of seven different intelligence types.
Gardner later added an eighth intelligence type to the list, that of naturalist intelligence. At the same time he suggested the existence of a ninth intelligence type, that of existentialist intelligence.
