Why Learning Skills?

Improve Marks at School

The majority of children use memorisation as a learning skill, which involves huge risks.  See e.g. the forgetting curve below:  Though scientists differ about the percentages, it is a fact that memorised content is easily forgotten. Depending on the content, it can be as much as 70% the next day or three days later. It is terrible: You learn 100 facts today and remember only 30 on day 3.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults”. 

  • Therefore, do the right thing now: awaken in your children and expose them as early as possible to the joy and rewards of creative expression and knowledge.  Not only will it improve their marks at school; their future livelihood will depend on their ability to apply the powers of their minds.
  • Therefore do the right thing now: Discover in the 10 Habits Course the exciting approaches how to rid your children of memorisation and introduce them to interesting brain development learning styles.

Empower your Brain

A “practised brain is a prepared brain” and make no mistake, a practised brain is what will be needed in future.

The intellectual demands on our children increase progressively, and continue to do so when they leave school.  The employment landscape is being reshaped continually, driven largely by technology and globalisation.  For example:  The expectation is that 65% of the children now in Grade 4 will eventually be in jobs that does not exist today

Research has shown that a “practising brain never stops changing”.  When applying proper and challenging learning and thinking skills, the brain adapts to meet these challenges. Plasticity is the capacity of the brain to change with learning. Develop therefore the inherent abilities of your child’s brain to learn new skills, build a better memory and quicken the speed of processing as early as possible.
