Skiing in India can be fun; Himalayan Ranges is the ideal place to ski

Skiing in India can be fun; Himalayan Ranges is the ideal place to ski | Hanifl Centre- Outdoor Education in the Himalaya | Scoop.it

Indian tourism is seeing many upcoming adventure sports organizing companies. Trekking, river rafting, scuba diving, skiing, paragliding and sailing are few of the popular sports in here. As much as trekking is encouraged skiing is not. People have this misconception that skiing can be dangerous.  But in reality it is one of the safest sports in the world. In the other countries, skiing is conducted more than trekking. Well, honestly if that was the case then walking is equally dangerous.

All you need is to master the art of skiing and there you go - whooshing like a magnificent snake to glory land. Skiing in India can be seen up north in the Himalayan Ranges. It is the best sport you can opt for during the summer days. The snow melts to the right texture which helps the skiers to slide effortlessly.

There are two layers to self-paced learning, from a Khan Academy point of view. One is the videos that students can watch at their own pace, and there’s also the exercise portion which the students get to complete at their own pace.

--- AVVISO: il testo è in inglese ---

 

Di cosa parla?

Spiega differenza tra apprendimento in classe e con self-paced learning.

 

in classe

- ogni argomento è presentato contemporaneamente a tutti

- ogni argomento è necessario a comprendere il successivo

- ogni argomento è compreso in percentuali diverse da ognuno

- allora alcuni alunni rimangono indietro

 

con self-paced learning

- ogni studente può passare ad argomento successivo quando è sicuro di aver compreso pienamente il precedente

Sal Khan created the Khan Academy which brought a lot of heat and some light to the blended learning / flipped classroom movement. See what he has to say.
