In this development period, Active learning is a good way for children to develop vital skills, knowledge and a positive attitude to learning. It is also a core part of a curriculum for excellence in the early years of childcare setting.
Using both real-life and play situations, active learning engages and challenges children’s thinking. It takes advantage of spontaneous play, purposeful play, investigating and exploring, events and life experiences as well as focused learning and teaching as opportunities for learning. It can be supported through sensitive intervention to support or extend learning.
Why Active Learning?
In our modern day learning environment, every parent wants to develop their child as successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors. That’s why Active learning helps to maintain student concentration and deepens learning towards the higher-level skills like critical thinking. It also helps to engage students who might otherwise struggle composition, creative writing and seek for English tuition.
Active learning embraces the holistic development of each child as an individual and fulfill their emotional, spiritual, physical and cognitive needs. It is a natural way of engaging children in their learning, helping them to make connections between learning and fostering their needs.
