Panyaden My Project 2017: self-directed learning programme - students brainstorming with teachers

It’s ‘My Project’!

Panyaden’s Self-directed Learning Programme

Panyaden’s primary students spent time after school last week brainstorming ideas for their self-directed learning programme, ‘My Project’. This programme is an opportunity for our students to work independently on projects of their choosing. Our main goal is to nurture their passion and creativity, allowing them in the process to take responsibility for their own learning. ‘My Project’ also benefits students in other ways, including building self-confidence and increasing self-reliance. It also encourages independent learning and developing team working skills.

This time, the students came up with ideas like Art You Can Use, D.I.Y. Super Science, incorporating and making products for The Panyaden Natural Product Company, Healthy Eating as well as computer animation and staging a Mary Poppins musical!

One of our student-led projects this term will help upper primary students learn programming skills and how they can use these to develop games. ‘My Project’ is a once-a-week programme in which students develop and direct their own learning, leading to some kind of finished product at the end of the term.

‘My Project’ 2015 Term 1 Celebrations

My Project 2015 T1, Panyaden School

We did it by ourselves! Parents, teachers and students join together to celebrate the result of 12 weeks of student-led planning, designing and making ‘My Project’. This term’s projects were: Shirts for the Dog Shelter, It’s All Natural (natural food products), Crafty Cats handicrafts, Sculpture, Cardboard Houses, Herbal Medicines, Traditional Weaving, Candle Making, Creative Hanging Things and Making a Herb and Flower Garden. The task included making sure all projects showed care for the environment and that the final products in some way brought benefits to others, whether making a candle for mum or donating profits from selling homemade jam to local school Wat Prachakasem. Job done!
