Every person on planet earth is unique, from their fingerprints to their perspectives. Because we are all different, the way we learn also varies greatly from person to person. So, why do we teach everyone in the exact same way and expect that it will suit all students?

To tackle this challenge, Taj, Livi and Nyasha develop the Hands on Learning Classroom.

The Hands on Learning Classroom will provide a space in schools for students to complete the same school syllabus, but with a different delivery method. Visual, kinaesthetic and auditory learners, will all have an opportunity to learn in an environment that caters best to their learning style preferences.

To trial this idea, the team are going to use the Wellbeing Space at Warrnambool College and run a trial for one month. At the end of the month, tests will be conducted to gauge whether students learnt better. This evidence can then be used to determine whether there is value in scaling the program up.
