A 15-member team of teachers and parents led by Su.M.S. Lalita, Joint Secretary, VKSPV visited Kottur (Pollachi) at Tamilnadu to receive training in Activity Based Learning (ABL). Sri M.P. Vijaykumar, Retd. IAS & former Director of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, Tamilnadu with a few resource persons guided the participants. ABL has been adopted in some parts of India as an innovative learner-centric methodology that enables a learner to develop at his or her own learning pace, ability, skills, interest and aptitude. 'Learning Ladders' and 'ABL Cards' are two unique means to this end.
