the [Joy] of Learning

Welcome to The Joy of Learning portal!

About Work at Play

The Joy of Learning project is an attempt by the individuals at NIT Rourkela to take teaching beyond classrooms. This portal is an endeavor to connect and participate with the outside world. Feel free to explore around and know more about how you can be a part of this wonderful movement.

What are we learning?

The basic premise of our idea draws inspiration from Prof. Sugata Mitra’s Hole in the Wall experiment. We at The Joy of Learning are exploring ways to make schooling a fun filled activity. Our kiosk set up in the middle of the REC Govt school playground, acts as an open window to a world of information, knowledge and entertainment to the kids studying there. While we wouldn’t like to label our pedagogy of thinking, we seek encouragement and motivation from a number of ideas such as the Waldorf Method of teaching to the seemingly naïve “treasure hunt like learning” method using the help of ICT. We intend to develop the kiosk into an “idea lab” which could help our community in taking that one step ahead in our grand march to universal education.
