This is 2nd part of a series of videos available on YouTube discussing Montessori. In this video Dr Steve Hughes discusses the need for a new way of educating, and this is what particularly resonated with me.
Teaching a child how to learn effectively is far more important than just imparting dry facts that will soon be forgotten and redundant in our ever accelerating world.
It was Charles Darwin who said “Survival is ultimately dependent on the ability to change and evolve”. Isn’t about time our children’s education reflected this too?
I am absolutely thrilled to have found this Tony Buzan video – I’ve been reading his books since my early teens, and I’ve been mind mapping ever since!
At first glance it might not seem as though you can directly apply the ideas in this video to teaching a baby or toddler perhaps, but I have some alternative interpretations for younger children that I hope to be sharing with you in the next week.
… because ‘Everybody, EVERYBODY has the potential for genius!‘
I’ve used the Doman advantage to get started teaching my two year old son, so I thought it would be a good idea to share this video here – it could help you get started too!
What a lovely fun and food fueled Christmas we’ve had. As you can see it took its toll on this little one – it didn’t keep him down long though, he was soon up and bouncing again.
I was very happy to see that the learning game with my son hasn’t gone unnoticed amongst my family. He received lots of lovely learning toys this Christmas. Which I was very excited about, I could barely wait to start playing them with him. Unfortunately I was cooking Christmas dinner this year, so I had to wait until boxing day before I had my chance.
Luckily his Nan was there to step in and enjoy some learning fun with her grandson too.
