Why do many students struggle in education, yet often display incredible learning and memory skills outside school?
To understand how a student learns and remembers we have to look at how people learn and remember. There are ways to reduce the distinction between ‘inside school’ and ‘outside school’. Learning is learning wherever it happens.
Just for a moment, remove your students from the school context and forget about their ‘academic ability’. Think of them for what they are: the owners of arguably the most complex thing in the universe – their brain.
Inside our brains we have about 100 billion neurons and the connections existing between them are virtually infinite.
Our simple techniques are rooted in how our brains work. Rather than information imposing itself on the student, we show the student how to make the information fit their own brain.
In our workshops the students learn to be the sun and information revolves around them like the planets.
