Characteristics of PAL Modules

PAL modules engage pupils through their heads, hearts and hands. They are designed with the five characteristics in mind:

 

Experiential in nature

Provide pupils with meaningful engagement through experiential learning in a safe environment. Reflection time is included to give pupils opportunities to express their thoughts and feelings, and build confidence in communication.

 

Encompasses learning in a creative way

Provide children the space to explore ideas to a new situation, to deepen their learning, make new connections to previous skills and knowledge, and make new self-discovery.

Provides opportunities for children to create 

Creative expression also helps children learn at a deeper level, provides enjoyment and leads to problem-solving.

 

Incorporates values education and social-emotional learning-

Through individual and group activities, pupils are able to learn about themselves and understand how to better relate to and work with others in a team, which is an important competency to thrive in a globalised world.

 

Fun and enjoyable

By focusing on the process of learning, the thinking and doing during the experience, and not just on the end product and skills acquisition, PAL allows pupils to expand into new areas that are both enjoyable and challenging so that they will be able to make connections and appreciate the finer things in life.
