The Hour-Glass Model of Active Learning provides an overview of the learning journey your child will embark on with the Art of Learning Programme.

It is a three-stage process that maps out how your child will go from being overwhelmed by a vast amount of information to being able to confidently apply his/her knowledge to any academic situation

Stage 1Active Understanding

This stage is dedicated to helping your child master and apply effective information control strategies.

Your child will learn to put the vast amounts of information he/she is exposed to in school through a process of analysis, categorisation and elimination. This will result in a smaller and more focused body of knowledge that can be more easily digested and processed.

Stage 2Active Storage

In this stage, your child will work on effectively storing the information he/she has distilled into a collection of key thoughts or facts. This will make it easier for him/her to retrieve the information he/she needs at the appropriate times.

Stage 3Active Recall

The third and final stage involves mastering and applying creative thinking and synthesis skills that will enable your child to structure and control information for specific purposes.

As your child’s grasp of these skills matures, he/she will also be able to make creative connections between concepts and construct sound arguments and intellectual positions.
