The times have changed. Now innovation is the core of any activity. As the world progresses to greater heights of existence, and awareness, there has to be a paradigm shift in various areas that support this transition. One area that supports transition of the world to a much more efficient global society is education.
The rendering of education has always been on the same lines around the world. Somehow schools and colleges seem less inclined to innovate. Firstly, educational institutions lack the funds, and secondly they lack the leadership. Educational institutions are exactly profit-making companies.
Yet, there are some smart ways to teach children in classrooms. Here are those.
Teachers must understand that different kids have different ways of learning. Specialized schools do such customized-learning activities to students. But most schools are not specialized.
Teaching with analogies
This is the best way a student can remember information. Anything has to make sense. When teaching technical topics, explaining things with analogies is an excellent way to understand a concept. When the student wants to recall the concept back, the student can do it by recalling the analogy.
Only theory won’t help. It has to be put into practice. Teachers can start off with practical-education first, and follow it with theory. This way the students can correlate what was put into practice to what is being taught. Practical-first, theory-later is an excellent way of drilling complex information to students.
Writing is another way of putting to paper thoughts. Students should be encouraged to write.
