1. Leads to effective learning.
Learning is the progressive change in behaviour and every experience brings about the change.
Experience curriculum provides effective motivation as it is centred in the learners. The experiences are planned according to the needs and interests of the learners.
3. Social development.
As the experiences are often acquired in group interaction, these lead to the child’s social development. He shares his educational experiences with others.
4. Helps in understanding the environment.
The child gains experiences as a result of interaction with his environment. This gives him better understanding of the environment. Framers of Wardha Scheme point out. “We have attempted to organise the subject-matter into significant and comprehensive units of experiences which when mastered enable the child to understand his environment better, and react to it more intelligently.”
1. Experience curriculum cannot be fixed in advance. It is too much flexible.
2. It requires very competent teacher to anticipate, plan and organise experiences for children. Such teachers are not easily available.
Thus we see that experience curriculum develops as the students are performing some activity or facing a situation. Experiences are
selected co-operatively by the teachers and the pupils keeping in view the needs, interests and previous experiences of the learners. Experience curriculum promotes the natural growth and development of students.
