Let's assume we want a child to learn to climb a ladder. Most conventional learning methods detail how the child should lift her/his leg and put it on the first step. We may also design an activity to balance on one leg. Provided a ladder, young children always tempted to climb if not I would suggest creating something which motivate her to climb up the ladder (you may place a flower up there or so). She would then try different ways to reach the top of the ladder. In the process, she learns to climb the ladder on her own. An adult could be around to help, if needed. The adult may even climb the ladder, to excite and show the child how it's done. The point is, learning to climb a ladder is not objective for the child but the child wants to go up this learning is just a by-product of all his/her efforts. Anand Niketan Democratic School (ANDS) is an attempt of this Natural Learning Environment by organizing resources, design contextual activities which motivate children to experiment with the skill and information and the democratic education to achieve inclusion in schools. ANDS made a successful attempt to create the pedagogical alternative for education at elementary level which I would like to name it - "Natural Learning Model."
