Creating knowledge involves acquiring, processing, and applying information to gain a deeper understanding of a subject or to generate new insights. Here’s how Orapuh students contribute to knowledge creation:
- Curiosity and Inquiry: They are taught to be curious about their subject area or questions related to it. They ask questions and seek to understand more about the area.
- Research: They are taught to engage in thorough research. This can involve reading books, articles, watching videos, or attending classes related to their area of interest or study.
- Critical Thinking: They are taught to analyse the information that they gather critically. They evaluate the sources of their information for credibility and bias and compare different viewpoints.
- Reflection: They are taught to take time to think about the information that they acquire. How does it relate to what they already know? What are the implications and applications of the knowledge?
- Application: They are taught to apply the knowledge in practical situations. This is often where true understanding and insight are developed. It can be through problem-solving, projects, or discussions.
- Sharing: They are taught to share their knowledge with others. This can be through teaching, writing, speaking, or creating content. Explaining concepts to others can deepen understanding.
- Continuous Learning: Knowledge is not static. It evolves. They are taught to keep learning and updating their knowledge over time and through the Alumni Association.
- Feedback: They are taught to be open to feedback and adapt their knowledge based on new information or different perspectives.
At Orapuh, creating knowledge is an ongoing process. It’s not just about knowing facts but also about understanding how things work, why they matter, and how they connect to the broader world.
