Our Learning Process
At The Learning Journey, extensive research into the latest educational techniques, along with those tried and trusted traditional methods of learning were put to the test. The results have led The Learning Journey to address and answer the following two fundamental issues facing parents and educators today: How to learn and what to learn.
How to Learn
Traditional forms of learning are mainly centered on the left side of the brain. The left side of the brain is the logical, mathematical side of the brain. Thus, when a book is read or text is memorized, the WORDS enter the left side of the brain. Most schools around the world still use traditional "left brain" education techniques as the primary method of teaching. Research has now proven that by also incorporating the right side of the brain, which is the more creative, artistic side of the brain, a child's ability to learn can be increased by as much as 90%! This new type of learning is known as "interactive" or "multi-sensory" learning.
Here is an example: Think back to those nursery rhymes you learned as a child or the words to your favorite song. Without realizing it, you can easily recall both the words and the rhyme. This is because you are utilizing both the left brain (the words) and the right brain (the rhyme) forms of activity. The combination of using both sides of the brain in the educational process at an early age is an extremely powerful tool that can give a child a chance to excel in life even before the formal school years begin.
