What better idea than fashioning a PLANET for learners that is fused with technology, core competencies of the English Language and creativity at the same time.
Badri High School feels proud to become the pioneers of launching Literacy Planet in Pakistan for the first time ever. Helping learners develop skills like Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Analytical Thinking through Computer Assisted Language based Learning (CALL) is a mega-project that has been accomplished in the Academic year 2019-2020 by the blessings and benedictions of His Holiness Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS.
After constantly striving hard for months, BHS inaugurated its first live class in literacy planet that is equipped with high-tech tablets in a well-designed Digital room which facilitate to a pair of students.
The program is an Australia-based, comprehensive and engaging online program to develop English literacy skills which the BHS team discovered at GESS Dubai two years ago. Discussions ensued and finally things were finalized to launch it in the year 2019-20.
Literacy Planet comes equipped with a benefit of thousands of comprehensive and grammatical exercises/games for learners to take advantage from. The environment of the application is highly engaging as it is illustrated and colourful. The exercises provided by the application are curriculum aligned (exclusive of Pakistan National Curriculum) and are suitable for learners of all abilities and intelligences (ref. to Howard Gardner`s theory of Multiple Intelligences).
Amidst the excitement, it was an eye freshener to see the high-maintenance of discipline amongst the students while working in the Digital room, the development of ownership skills, the level of their confidence, the involvement to score better in four skills of language learning in order to win the credits, assimilated in promoting 21st century learning that is solely focused on active teaching approaches.
