The Pragmatic idea of ‘Learning by Doing’ is creating wonders in Students’ life

Stanford scholar Oriana Skylar Mastro has set an example for students by combining two careers simultaneously. As an undergraduate student at Stanford, she studied the Chinese language in the East Asian Studies program, and then she took a year off and went to the country to immerse herself in its culture. Then, as a doctoral student, to know more about security issues of the U.S. military she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. Students are required to model this kind of attitude towards learning new knowledge through experience and exploration. This kind of approach is indeed necessary for our children to have a mindset to approach different problems that they need to face in coming days and take each instance as a challenge to solve problems and take appropriate decisions in life to be successful in leading a life with healthy soul and mind.
