Focus and Flow!


Improving our students’ learning ability continues to be our team's main goal. While brain training remains our core way of achieving this, we do support families in other means via newsletters, social media posts and events, the first of which are our Open House on Saturday, January 25th, and a learning event called "Focus & Flow" on Sunday afternoon, February 2nd (scroll down).


For this newsletter, we’ll go back to the basics of teaching and learning.


Bloom’s taxonomy is a widely-accepted cognitive framework used by educators to create learning goals and plans. Under this framework, for successful learning, students MUST be able to, in this order: remember first, then understand, before they can apply, analyze, evaluate and create using knowledge and skills learned.


Following this, children will only be able to create a good piece of writing, for instance, when they have fully grasped and understood content--not just memorize.


At work and home, the same framework CAN apply. When reading with kids, teaching a new skill or imparting unfamiliar information to family members (including the elderly with regressing cognitive faculties), work colleagues and household staff, check that these are absorbed and understood FIRST.


Above pyramid can serve as a guide in understanding where their level of learning is at. Refer to the following chart for a list of words to use to match their current learning levels, and which words to say to help them stretch and move up the next level.
