What is active learning

During the early stages of their life, a child will learn by interacting with the environment around them using all of their senses, and of course movement. This means that they will be learning about the world using taste, touch, sight, hearing, smell and movement. This stage is most rampant between the ages of three and eight, although of course it will happen at any time during our life. This is known as active learning. Let's take a little look at this concept in greater depth.


At school, this is one of the best teaching methods for children of a young age. As opposed to a teacher actually 'teaching' everything they know to the children, the children are left to their own devices and learn on their own. At this age the child prefers to take in everything that they know by themselves and use this experience to feed their knowledge. As a result, at this age it is encouraged for children to be as creative as possible in the classroom, which means using a lot of play and interaction with their classmates.


When a child is 'active learning' it is said that they never actually stop learning. Instead, every new bit of information they take in from experience is used to enhance an older experience. In short, a child at the end of the day is far more knowledgeable about everything than they were at the start of the day. There is just so much to take in about the world all at the time same time, and the child absolutely loves trying to make sense of it all.


One of the most important stages of the 'active learning' process is known as the reinforcement stage. This is when a child simply talks about everything that they have learned with another, whether it be an adult or a child. When this happens, you just want to listen. As they repeat this information they are simply reinforcing what they have learned throughout the day, and this of course means it is much easier to remember. Some teachers and parents at this stage love to give their child a little prompt with questions to really make the child thing about their answers, and this is of course encouraged as it is all part of the active learning process. I suggest doing this around the dinner table, and don't forget to savour these moments, during their teenage years your child will be incredibly hesitant to discuss anything about their day! So make sure you ask them what they have learned, and they will absolutely love it.


Once they hit the age of nine or so, the active learning approach takes a bit of a back burner as they will already have learned a lot about the world, but as I mentioned at the start, active learning never really ceases. Everything will encounter in the world we can learn from, and our minds still love to attempt to make sense of the things that surround us.
