Service-learning means the combination of the formal education that we take in school and colleges, and applying them in a service-oriented way. It requires students to showcase their knowledge and connect it with the emotions and needs of society.
The person has to apply the intellect and have a personal passion for this work. The student’s environment should motivate and empower them to search for their passion and work to address real-world problems. It is a process that provides a learning experience, develops a personality, and ensures cognitive development too.
In the classroom, they learn theory and connect passion and real-world problems. These ideas are then implemented to solve the existential issues of society and bring positive change.
The main idea of service-learning is to bring positive change to society.
