Brain Training Online for Kids

Brain training online for kids and students is fast becoming the recognised method as the best way to challenge their brains to work harder at subjects like math,science or reading while improving memory and IQ. In the internet of eveything, data and information overload can expose a childs brain to more demands than even before. The education system does not address the need to teach students how to learn and acquire knowledge easier.

Brain training online as a weekly routine will…

Is distance learning the key to development in Africa?

Despite the world forging ahead in the 21st century even now in certain parts of the African Sub-continent, getting access to quality education is a major challenge. There are various factors responsible for this; the primary reasons are turmoil and strife in Africa’s political sphere, as well as a lack of a proper infrastructure and weak economies.…

Coding in Education

Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, famously said, “I think everyone in this country should learn how to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think.” Yet the value of learning coding is often seen as having an occupational bias rather than a general educational benefit.…

A student’s performance is mostly impacted by three communities

  1. The School Learning Environment
  2. The Student’s Peer Community and their own beliefs about learning
  3. The Parental / Family Community

Schools tend to spend most of their time, money and energy working…

Speak Up About How Technology Advances Education and Learning

Originally Published on Learning Outside The Lines

When an idea as innovative as online learning starts to gain traction in our school systems, it’s important that we take the time to study both how it is impacting the educational environment now and how we can continue to leverage it in the future.  In many cases, the…

Using how we learned our first language to learn subsequent languages

What can we  learn from the infants experience?

Maybe you have thought about the question – “Why is it that nearly all infants, barring the very few with some chemical or physical issue, learn to speak their mother tongue(s) to the level of their peers and only a few years later these figures get reversed?” That is very few children once they go to school ever learn a subsequent language to any level of decent…

An Evolution of Learning: Have the Tools of Science Superceded "Hands-On" Exploration and Education?

It is acknowledged that tools help with the "perception" of knowledge. The magnifying glass, the telescope, and the microscope were objects that opened up an entirely new world. It is also acknowledged that people's fingers are too big to examine an amoeba, and people can't just walk up to the moon.



The other biggie in the knowledge game was "the drawing", the recording of information, but further to this was the "sequential" recording of data, which led…

Building a High Performance School – Communication and Barriers

As long time readers of our blog will know I am working with a number of schools to support them in creating a culture of high performance learning. If you read back through the blogs you’ll find some of the earlier discussions we have had around becoming clearer about what was their actual vision for the school and what that would look like.

We are now moving from the WHAT to the HOW. This requires us to explore WHO we need to enrol in the new vision and also addressing some of the…

What house do you live in?

It might seem odd to begin a blog post with this title but hopefully you will find that the analogy is quite apt.

We all live in houses. However, the style, the quality, the fittings, the size, and the neighbourhoods that our houses are in are all different. It seems to be a trend in most countries that many people aspire to the larger house, the higher quality fittings, the expensive neighbourhoods, the more impressive styles, and so on. It would be a rare person that aspires to a…

Developing 21st Century School Leadership

 

I have realised over the past 6 months how few schools are actually clear about what their long term vision is. Part of the impact of this lack of vision and disciplined building of this vision is that schools can quite often be focussed on things that disperse their power and ability. They become like a thirsty person wandering in the desert – going from one mirage to the next. Teachers become inured to change and morale can suffer.

 

In an increasingly competitive…
