Parents

Parents often say "School is SO different from when I was there!"


The capacity to learn how to learn will be a key differentiator for our children in the next generation. Learners need to develop their capacity to think, learn and adapt to changing circumstances with resilience and confidence. 

Learning how-you-learn and how-to-learn means that your child will develop the skills necessary to transfer learning to their ever-changing world. Learning is a skill that can be taught and developed with the right motivation and self-regulation. Think of all the things your child has already learned successfully.

 

Yet sometimes they may struggle to learn, and this is because their learning preferences, capacities and strategies are not synchronized or they have yet to learn to develop a critical foundation skill. Other reasons your young person can struggle relate to diagnosed learning disabilities like dyslexia, mental disorders such as anxiety, depression.

 

Learning diagnosis or not, self-paced online modules help teach all young person how to develop the skills to overcome and best manage their unique learning challenges. These can be complimented with one-on-one and/or group coaching sessions. 


Adolescents

Each human is capable and able to learn. Our brains are naturally programmed with an in-built capacity to learn. We also know that we can continue to learn throughout our lifespan due to the research on neural plasticity. Even so, sometimes it is easy and sometimes difficult.

 

Although we are capable of learning, it doesn’t mean we are all able to easily unlock this skill. We also do not necessarily prefer to engage and learn about all topics easily. For example, some people naturally gravitate towards technical learning and others towards creative pursuits. We know from Gardner's work on multiple intelligences that we all have different learning preferences. 


The online courses help you understand and assess how you prefer to learn - recognising your:

  • Learning Roadblocks
  • Learning Preferences & Styles
  • Learning Strengths & Weaknesses



Educators

Even though we are capable of learning, it doesn’t mean we are all able to easily unlock this skill. Professional Development sessions for educators are available to support you in developing the capacity of lifelong learners, whilst aligning to the current curriculum requirements. 

 

Online sessions focus on the psychological components of learning (cognitive, social and emotional variables) and help you to identify what may be impacting a learners capacity to learn and engage in the classroom. We discuss bridging the gap between learner capacities, curriculum outcomes, learning strategies and the assessment process. Programs help you align learning strategies and design to the 21st Century Skills of the Australian National Curriculum.
