The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Once Nelson Mandela said that, Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Only education has the power to make a person capable of taking wise and good decisions, and only your decisions can make your future bright or dark. Studies have shown that in a child, vast majority of neurons are developed between birth and age of three. In these days a child's brain peak capacity to retain new information is high. They are more receptive to information at a young age, so they are good learners at this age.

This is a very good illustration. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing it with us. 

The normal human brain shows great receptivity till age of 4 and it's said that the things that child learns during those years stay long in terms of habit. As you said about the attention span which only develops during the early years of learning. The behavioral aspect also shows a good improvement for the early learners. They begin to correlate things in a better way as well.

Well...that's interesting illustration! As parents, we always want the best for our children. From your study, it is clear that teaching children from an early age greatly improves their memory and concentration levels.

Though early education is beneficial for children, we should not force anything into them, it should be a natural process.
 

I have worked in Early Childhood Education for over 15 years before switching to working with children with emotional disorders and I fully agree with this study. All of the children in my group with emotional disorders lacked quality parent involvement and care during the first 3 years of their life. These children were unable to enjoy activities like reading books together, playing with educational toys, or just being cared for in a safe and loving environment. This lack of involvement in the early years made it difficult for these children to function successfully in a school environment and for most it will be a life-long battle to become productive citizens.

Use these two words and become a better student

Words are powerful.And you do not only know that since your last exam. A single word can change everything: it can make you the victor, save relationships, calm you down or pull you into the abyss.Finding the right words is an art that not everyone masters. Some use their words inflationary and put one empty phrase to the next. Others put every word on the gold scale and interpret everything possible into what is said.But your choice of words not only affects how other people perceive you. Your…See More

Online Education: Can It Really Replace Learning in Classrooms?

In the modern world education is a part of everyone's life. Even if someone did not graduate from college or finish school, they still learn new skills or just something they are interested in.
