Humans are born with unique personalities and distinctive intellects and we tend to follow varied styles of learning to feed that intellect. Why feed that intellect? Simply, because we are born curious, and it’s imperative to act on it just like how we act on other basic bodily functions – eat when hungry, drink when thirsty, sleep when tired and so learn when curious.
But have you realized our level of curiosity declines over the years?
Why is it so?
Maybe because we haven’t:
· Nourished our curiosity enough with knowledge and information.
· Had fun with learning.
· Been motivated to learn.
· Identified what learning style best suits us.
· Been exposed to different learning techniques.
· Been given the opportunity to ask questions.
· Encouraged to find answers to those intriguing questions.
And the list goes on… Do we want the same for our children?
Well, we want them to be smart, well-informed and life-long learners.
At QShala, we have addressed all these concerns and curated fun and engaging age-wise programs for children from ages 6-15 years. Since no one size fits all, we have designed curiosity modules that cater to all types of learners – visual, aural, verbal, kinesthetic, logical, inter and intrapersonal learners.
Besides, QShala’s universe of programs also encompasses various learning techniques. Children feel the need and have every right to be exposed to various learning techniques it becomes our liability to ensure they get the best. Here are some of the learning techniques imparted at QShala – peg systems, visual mnemonics, mind mapping, observation, productivity techniques, goal setting, active reading, audits, surveys, journaling, spaced repetition, thought experiments, memory retention, habit building and many more.
According to a report published by UNICEF, more than half of South Asian youth are not on track to have the education and skills necessary for employment in 2030.
All the aforementioned learning techniques find their way to the 21st-century skills – self-awareness, communication, critical thinking, creative thinking, citizenship, compassion and collaboration. These skills are crucial as it ensures them to thrive in a world of change, empowers them to never stop learning and present their best in whatever situations they may be in.
All said, I would like to quote a few parents’ take on the QShala programs:
· My daughter’s deductive reasoning skills have gone up with the sessions.
· The food wastage class has had an impact on my kid, he doesn’t waste food anymore.
· My kid was very shy and reserved, now with QShala sessions she has started communicating with everyone, become confident and started asking a lot of questions.
· QShala has helped my son become more curious, observant and to adopt a growth mindset.
· With every session, my child is becoming a better quizzer.
· She has started creating quizzes for family, she does her research and creates questions.
· My child has learnt that “Although one could be wrong, he/she must learn to crack a problem”.
Finally, yet importantly we believe in the power of training young minds to never stop learning, we make the learning experience rewarding, we teach them to have fun while learning, and we give them a sense of accomplishment in solving quests, questions and in quenching curiosity.
