Happy August to all of the parents out there who are excited to get their children back to school and on a regular schedule again. As summer comes to a close, stores bring out the school supplies, school appropriate clothing, and uniforms that are going to enable our children to learn effectively and efficiently! Parents pay big bucks for these details that help their children succeed in school, but is it enough to help them reach their highest potential?
Throughout the month of August, OstermanCron is going to discuss what may be hindering a child’s ability to learn and easy ways to change these aspects.
Think about where you went to elementary school, is that school still around? Is that where your child goes to school each day? Was the school ever part of a major renovation? The answer to these questions may vary from family to family, but most schools are about a half-century old and have not yet been through a major renovation. Here’s a thought… there could very well be nothing wrong with the structure of the building itself, but if you think of advances in not only technology, but the way we think and learn; why are we forcing children to go back a half century and expect them to learn in that classroom? It is possible that we may have added Wi-Fi to the building or a smartboard here and there, but that is not enough to help students reach their full potential.
In today’s world, students thrive off collaboration, movement, interaction, and, well let’s face it, technology. Imagine being able to incorporate all of these things into a classroom along with the correct school supplies and clothing and watching students thrive beyond our imagination.
