Experiential paradigm

Experiencing is the basis for knowing in Experiential paradigm. The teacher and teaching is absent but learner and the learning is the permanent and continuous fact of life. In the non literate ‘doing’ societies every situation is a learning situation. Here to live means to learn. Children are left completely free to explore their world. Free to wake up when they want, free to sleep when they want free to eat when they want. The time is regulated by nature. Time to sleep is when the sun sets.
