If someone tells you that they know how to train your brain to learn, they are simply lying. Let us explain.
Even though scientific progress has been seen with a better understanding of most parts of our body, our understanding of the human brain, in general, is at quite a preliminary level. To put it into context, scientists are now able to grow a beating, new heart, or even try to put a new head on humans, but mapping out the brain and the meaning of all neuron activity is still a puzzle, for the most part.
So, apart from a few tricks that work at the level of building and storing memory, for instance the mind palace technique, most of the learning shortcuts are simply lies, or, at the least, exaggerations. So, don’t get sold to pop science and waste your time and money.
However, in terms of how matters come out in real, i.e. our styles, the understanding of human learning is a bit more concrete. To put into context, an understanding of our learning styles is far more effective, including, in terms of improving our children’s performance.
Learning Styles for Kids
In more explicit terms, understanding the learning styles for kids gives you a better understanding of the kind of environment required that encourages soaking, understanding, and expression of knowledge and learning.
And, as you can imagine, there is not a single path of figuring out the right environment for your child. At Spark Academy, in order to do so, we follow a simplified path: Finding the sweet spot where the kid is enjoying their learning journey.
The Fun Element in the Learning Journey
You may not realise this but humans are genetically curious. And, you can imagine what happens when this human curiosity is fed the right way: we have fun.
Sadly, when the topic of fun is brought up in education, most parents think of an environment that is overly ‘lenient’; one where the education facilities are simply designed to keep the kid satisfied, with little to no emphasis on real learning.
However, that is not always the case.
The right learning environment for a kid, in itself, is full of fun. However, treating fun in learning as an end result is a fallacy too.
In fact, if you treat learning and knowledge as an end-result, the journey becomes insufferable.
Therefore, it is important to draw a journey map for your child and figure out what wakes up that curiosity in your child. And, this is exactly what we do for your kids at Spark Academy: we place your kids within the right styles of learning.
