The Al-Falah School employs the IDEAL (Innovative, Dynamic, Entertaining, and Applied Learning) teaching philosophy in our educational approach
Innovation in Education
Using tried and tested approaches to teaching will be a norm at Al-Falah School, but continuous improvement through innovation will be a necessary element of our academic program. The teaching and learning strategies will utilize recent findings from research in the realm of education and apply them in a controlled manner in our classrooms. This will be applicable to both tools and techniques used in our approach.
We are committed to utilizing educational tools that employ the latest technology- towards achieving accelerated learning. We will introduce templates into our teaching operations to help our teachers automate day-to-day tasks.
We believe that teaching can be effective when the teachers make an effort to understand the learning styles of the students. Learning styles may change over the course of time. As such, teachers have to keep abreast of the changes in the learning styles of the students and match their teaching styles accordingly.
In Al-Falah School, we seek to understand the learning styles of our students and train them accordingly. We believe it is important for teachers to comprehend how students understand, conceptualize, record and recall what has been taught.
We believe teaching should be learner-directed and it should motivate learners to take charge of their learning. Our teachers will work closely with our students and their parents to ensure that what is taught is being learnt.
Learning as Fun
Teaching should be entertaining and fun. It is very difficult to sustain a child’s interest, if learning is boring, repetitive and devoid of fun. We believe teachers should inspire and kindle interest in students for students to develop love towards their studies.
Theory is an important element of learning. Students learn about descriptions, principles, theorems, hypothesis, models, observations, etc. However, in order to make learning be interesting, theory is not sufficient. It has to accompany its counterpart- the practical side. Students should be able to apply the knowledge they have gained in appropriate way. Al-Falah extra and co-curricular (such as e-learning, labs, vocational and practical training) supplement and reinforce the knowledge learned in more traditional classes.
