About THE FRAMEWORK
We always strive for the best.
The Finger Puppet Learning Framework supports several pedagogical approaches of learning. The Framework embeds experiential-based and project-based learning that can be implemented with any curriculum and content. By engaging all the senses in learning, students build skills, retain knowledge and apply the knowledge with greater outcomes than conventional approaches to learning. Since the Framework is strongly tied to develop agile and creative mindsets to problem solving and the maker education (active learning through creating), the following principles help guide this approach.
