Q1. What is the relevance of social science labs or geography labs in schools?
A1. Social Sciences are subjects that are related to individual, spatial and societal development of the student. Therefore delivering practical knowledge of these subjects is a very important part of meaningful learning at schools. But in today’s career driven society, social sciences as a subject has deteriorated both in terms of its importance for the student and the learning methodologies being followed in our school education system. The result has been that social sciences learning, including history, civics and geography have become way too theoretical and
more of a textual compulsion for students.
Social Science Lab and Geography Lab is an attempt by the education governing bodies, pedagogy designers and school managements to bring back interactivity and engagement based learning in these subjects. Geography Lab conceptually is subset of the social science lab, which includes history and civics too. These labs were conceptualized to bring in live models, experiments and activities around geography, history and civics into schools and expose students to
practical applications and experience of these life sciences.
Off late, the school ecosystem has wakened up to the importance of social sciences and its practical application in human life and learning. Therefore, very effective hands-on and virtual lab tools are being designed to offer meaningful social science lab experiments. This has facilitated the design and setup of world-class social science labs in our schools, enabling the best of practical social science learning.
Q2. What are the virtual and software components in the social science labs? What role do they play?
A2. The virtual components of social science lab includes games and activities around geography, history and in some cases civics too. For geography, there are extensive games, quizzes and activities around landforms, knowing the countries and parts of the world and literally on every topic in the geography curriculum for students to visualize, explore and know the subject in a real life like environment.
For history, the software takes the route of history games and movies, along with enjoyable multimedia around major events in history in order to excite and engage the student to the topic. Multimedia software plays a great role
in history learning since epic stories and historical events have been animated to enable an amazing view into various aspects of world history in the most entertaining manner.
These components play two major roles in the social science lab setup at schools:
a. Extensive range and exposure
The virtual labs offer a very wide range of activity and multimedia exposure to almost everything around history,
geography and civics. They serve beyond the physical limitation of models and tools.
b. Excite and Engage Students
We all know about our student’s ever-growing virtual games and ed-tech love. Virtual social science labs play a
every important role of engaging and exciting the students to explore this subject with much more interest and enjoyment, thereby leading to very impactful and retentive learning.
A3. This question comes up from a lot of schools, especially in cities where schools do have a space constraint. And the answer is yes for sure.
We support this thought from two perspectives.
- Schools who face shortage of rooms for labs should also be able to setup and offer best of practical learning in social sciences.
- Moreover, practical exposure has to slowly move beyond lab rooms and be available anywhere in the school.
If we look at it objectively, the core purpose of the social science lab is to offer practical exposure to students around all the three subjects of geography, history and civics. The lab delivers this via three main components:
- Physical models, kits and tools for hands-on exploration and experiments
- Virtual Software, multimedia and game based activities for virtual experiments
- Worksheets, manuals and activities
Therefore in order to combine labs in common rooms, a school should ensure that:
- These three components can be setup, stored and managed effectively in combination with other labs
- And the strength of school and layout allows session scheduling for all grade for both labs easily without compromising on regularity
In some international curriculums, lab corners are made in classrooms itself to facilitate regular and uninterrupted exploration along with theory. And we believe that if the vision of the school management and design of the school so
permits, then basic practical activities and introduction should be a part of classroom learning, and extend to labs for extensive experimentation.
Conceptually, all group activity based labs are similar in terms of structure, layout, furniture and usage plan. To be more specific, labs like the Math Lab and Robotics Lab are fundamentally similar to Social Science Labs. Therefore, in such situations, it is best to consider combining Social Science Lab or Geography lab with your hands-on math Lab or Robotics Lab.
In newly setup schools during their first or second session, combining labs makes a lot of sense since it leads to optimum use of hardware, furniture and rooms; reduces initial investment while offering best lab facilities from the
outset to students. They can slowly invest in new lab rooms when the school strength grows beyond optimum usage level.
Therefore, we conclude by saying that you can definitely combine your labs in common rooms at schools to derive optimum usage and we can help you do the same.
