”People of all ages can learn virtually anything if allowed to do it through their own unique styles, their own personal strengths”…Prashing
The way in which we raise our children and the manner in which we educate our children, has the potential to transform our world.
The 21st century comes with its unique set of challenges for parents, teachers and learners. Performance measures, benchmarking, timelines, quota intakes, social pressures and the issues around ‘instant results’ create a real scenario of intense pressure for the learning community. The overt focus on the 3R’s (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic) continues to plague holistic education. This system of standardized education – one size fits all – has eroded the the true spirit and goal of education. It is no wonder that emotional, behavioural and learning issues are on the increase and children and young adults have become disengaged from the current education system, as it is designed to serve a mass production line with a cookie-cutter approach.
Another cause for concern within the education system is the focus on deficits, disorders and dysfunctions. A system which labels and pigeon-holes children is an obsolete one. Labels lead to ”pathologizing” our children and then medicating them, in most cases, to control or subdue their behaviour. Is this how we nurture and empower our children? Are we aware that our education systems, globally, continue to marginalise emotional and social learning?
A ground-breaking study by Howard Gardner at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, (Project Zero) discovered an interesting phenomenon termed ”The Genius Dip”. Research indicated that virtually all children born up to the age of 4 had genius capabilities, but this begins to drop as they get older and by the age of 20 and above only 2% of the population retain their genius capabilities.
This is a serious concern. Knowing that a child spends most of their time at school from the ages of 4 to approximately 18/19 years, means that something is outrageously wrong with the way in which we are teaching our children.
Conscious Classrooms is about re-awakening the genius within each child, supporting the well-being of teachers and building a platform of resources for parents. The intention is to restore the natural enthusiasm and wide-eyed wonder of the teaching and learning process. To build an integrated learning community infused with love, compassion, kindness and care. To encourage collaboration, sharing and caring for one another. To restore the true nature of humanity.
And all of this…through the simple, yet profound act of how we raise and teach our children.
It is time to deconstruct standardized education.
The world our kids are going to live in is changing four times faster than our schools.
Conscious Classrooms is a dynamic and inspiring programme designed to integrate social and emotional learning in schools to create a better world. Aimed at supporting the whole learning community of learner, teacher and parents it is choc-full of resources and breakthrough interventions packaged to stimulate both teaching and learning in diverse and captivating ways.
