How learning occurs

What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child. George Bernard Shaw.

Learning is the process of acquiring information, knowledge, and skills.
 
Learning involves the total central nervous system with the brain as the main processing and control centre.

Learning occurs when we interact with our environment.

New experiences provide new information.


 Information comes in through the senses. Then we sort the information and we analyse, compare, integrate, question, sequence, and organize it.

This is how learning occurs.

Points to Remember:
  1. Children need hands on experience to learn
  2. Children do not divide their learning into categories: one play activity can encompass many kinds of play and learning. For example sand play can be solitary, parallel, associative or co-operative play and can help us learn skills in language, science, maths and is active and manipulative and sensory play and can be constructive, creative, dramatic and exploratory.
  3. Children need freedom to explore and learn on their own terms
