Co-Scholastic activities provide learner the opportunity of Learning by doing. Here is the glance of activities learners will engage themselves.

LITTLE CHEFS

Cooking Club is a fun way to introduce children to the basics of cooking. Cooking with kids is a great way to educate them about good nutrition and to encourage them to eat healthy foods. Cooking may even help get students interested in trying healthy foods they might normally refuse to eat. Expand their horizons by getting students in the kitchen through a healthy cooking club.

DIY

child's imagination is endless and their thirst for knowledge is insatiable and that by teaching children practical skills and encouraging them to submit to their creativity, children become more confident, capable and cosmopolitan. They’ll tackle the do-it-yourself projects of their dreams while building and bonding.

POTTERY

Children need a variety of tactile experiences to learn about the complexity and richness of information the world has to offer. In this ever more technologically focused world it is easy for kids to miss out on it. Pottery Club can help bring them back by offering pottery lessons providing a messy, muddy alternative to express themselves. Open ended and exploratory in nature, it provides a place for kids to come and have fun with clay. They can choose between collaborative and individual experiences and all will be offered the chance to develop skills on the potterʼs wheel. We at ISWKiare mindful that childrenʼs time is often filled with pressure at school. This club, therefore, is not about producing products to take home to parents – although they certainly will! Rather, the focus is on the experience of experimenting and playing with a plastic, responsive material that can be manipulated in many varying, exciting and often quite personal ways.

CODE OF CONDUCT

Social skills do not come with birth. They must be learned just like any other skill. Unlike many skills we acquire, that are useful in a particular setting, social skills apply to, and benefit, every area of life. ISWKi believes the keys to successful relationships are integrity, honor, grace, kindness, respect, and personal responsibility, which are the true essence of a lady or gentleman in the 21st century. This club is designed to enhance relationships at home, at school, and in the community. Those who understand the guidelines for social interactions will be best equipped to succeed in today’s global world and will enjoy a greater level of confidence. Our goal is to give our students the necessary building blocks for a solid future, through poise, confidence, integrity and leadership, in an entertaining environment, which will be engaging, age-appropriate and interactive. Students will learn the power of etiquettes, how and why it is a valuable life-long skill that works to their own benefit. The will learn and practice leadership, social, dining and communication skills to enable them to feel comfortable and self-assured on any occasion.

TECHY GENIUS

This club at ISWKi will help students build Technological and leadership skills, get them involved with it at an early age. Expose students to advanced technologies that are changing the world. Learn and play with students with similar interests and work with professional educators. We will offer an extensive range of computing courses guaranteed to give your child a head start, incorporating both fun learning and academic skills. Techy Genius Club provides your child with an exceptional learning experience in a fun, informal and respectful environment.

PUBLIC SPEAKING

Children learn hard skills like math and science in school curricula, but speech training teaches them important soft skills such as leadership, creativity, persuasiveness and organization. This club has been designed to develop speaking and leadership skills for students. They will run the meeting while the coordinator provides training and guidance. The informal interaction focuses on teaching students communication and leadership skills. They learn to overcome nervousness when speaking in front of groups, to organize and present ideas logically and convincingly, to listen carefully to the ideas of other students, and offer helpful advice.

BLENDED CLASSROOMS

Technology integration is the use of technology resources -- computers, mobile devices like smart phones and tablets, digital cameras, social media platforms and networks, software applications, the Internet, etc. in daily classroom practices. When technology integration is at its best, a child or a teacher doesn't stop to think that he or she is using a technology tool -- it is second nature. And students are often more actively engaged in projects when technology tools are a seamless part of the learning process.

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content. For instance, in a classroom with only an interactive whiteboard and one computer, learning is likely to remain teacher-centric, and integration will revolve around teacher needs, not necessarily student needs. Still, there are ways to implement even an interactive whiteboard to make it a tool for your students.

Types of Technology Integration

It is sometimes difficult to describe how technology can impact learning because the term "technology integration" is such a broad umbrella that covers so many varied tools and practices; there are many ways technology can become an integral part of the learning process. Just a few of these ways are listed below -- but new technology tools and ideas emerge daily.

Online Learning and Blended Classrooms

While K-12 online learning gains traction around the world. Many teachers are also exploring blended learning -- a combination of both online and face-to-face education.

Project-Based Activities Incorporating Technology

Many of the most rigorous projects are infused with technology from start to finish, with a one-to-one laptop program.

Game-Based Learning and Assessment

There has been a lot of buzz about the benefits of incorporating simulations and game-based learning activities into classroom instruction.

Learning with Mobile and Handheld Devices

Once widely dismissed as distractions, devices like cell phones, mp3 players, and tablet computers are now being used as learning tools in forward-thinking schools. Read a blog by Ben Johnson on using iPads in the classroom or an article about using cell phones for educational purposes. Check out the case study by former Edutopia executive director Milton Chen on using iPods to teach English language learners, or there's a blog by Audrey Watter about texting in the classroom. We also have a blog series that maps k-5 iPad apps to Bloom's taxonomy by Diane Darrow.

Web-Based Projects, Explorations, and Research

One of the first, and most basic, ways that teachers encouraged kids to use technology was with online research, virtual field trips, and webquests. Online collaborative projects undertaken by students. Using web-based resources to help your classroom go global, and wonderful virtual field trips. Or useful how-to articles about using online photo archives for primary sources, teaching with virtual libraries, and helping students do research on the web.

Student-Created Media like Podcasts, Videos, or Slideshows

One of the central ideas of digital or media literacy is that students should become creators and critics, not just consumers of media or learn about student filmmakers.

Collaborative Online Tools like Wikis or Google Docs

Connecting with others online can be a powerful experience, both for teachers and for students. Teacher Vicki Davis wrote an article for Edutopia on creating personal learning networks for students, about the basics of how wikis work.

Using Social Media to Engage Students

Though social media tools are still blocked in many schools, students around the world spend vast amounts of time on social networks outside of school. Read a blog that makes the case for social media in education, and article that goes over how to use social-networking technology for learning, or another blog about how to co-opt students' favorite social media tools for classroom use.
