Q. Changes in Learning Styles during Childhood

1) A child’s brain is continually developing.

2) The strengths and weaknesses a child shows when he’s five may be quite different than his strengths and weaknesses when he’s 10 or 15.

3) The way children learn also changes over time.

4) As a child grows and matures his or her brain grows, develops and matures.

5) One result of this growth and development can be that a child will appear to have strength at one time, but if tested three or four years later that same skill may be judged a weakness.

6) The reasons are complex, but the important thing to know is that a child’s strengths and weaknesses aren’t carved in stone.

7) As time passes the way a child learns best may change significantly.

Learning and the Senses

Effective teaching usually combines several approaches, or multi-sensory instruction, so the child uses more than one sense at a time while learning.
Multi-sensory approaches work well because of the way our brain is organized.

When we learn, information takes one path into our brain when we use our eyes, another when we use our ears and a yet a third when we use our hands.
By using more than one sense we bombard our brain with the new information in multiple ways. As a result we learn better.
