How children fare in their PSLE will determine their choices in their secondary and tertiary studies, and potentially their future. Students who fare poorly in exams are more often than not failing to connect with the content they are being taught. It is seldom a reflection on the children’s ability, or even on the curriculum content. Rather, the method of instruction is failing the children.
Content Without Context
In traditional learning environments, pieces of a subject are often taught in isolation, and the students fail to grasp an overview of the whole or make connections between the units. They learn content without understanding it. Consequently, students feel overwhelmed by information and the ensuing stress worsens their performance.
You may ask, what can my child do to stop the loss of information and start connecting again? What is needed is a learning strategy that joins all the pieces together and helps make the important cognitive and emotional connections.
The Optimal Flow Method
By having a learning strategy, effective learning will then provide the overall picture and organises information so that it provides a natural – and ‘brain friendly’ flow . This is the principle behind MindChamps Optimal Flow Method of learning. The Optimal Flow Method helps students connect the new information to concepts they have already understood, to create a new and more complete understanding,
