If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn. ~Ignacio Estrada
Someone found a school prospectus that reads: “If the pupil does not learn the way we teach, then we will teach the way the pupil will learn.”
In a recent workshop I answered a question about Aspergers and visual learning as follows ” Have you thought of teaching all the children as if they have Aspergers and see if the others can catch up!”
And I found this fascinating paragraph “help them to want to learn, inspire them and they will learn, not by bullying or intimidation but by nurturing and natural abilities and instincts of their learning skills. Work with them and at their speed, don’t push them beyond their learning pace and they’ll get there in the end. Be patient. Work with, not against them. Be kind, considerate, inspiring and encouraging. Don’t bribe but do reward.” From Why does your dog do that..because he is a dog. The chapter on communication. There is much we can learn from animal too.
All of these match the Empowering Learning style. Do learn how to do this for yourself.
