The curriculum at schools now calls for teachers to prepare students in content-rich and knowledge-intensive information and thinking skills that is essential for greater complexity. This means that there is now a higher level of expectation for problem solving versus the memorization of facts. National educational bodies and governments are calling for more rigor, relevance and results in education, suggesting that critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration and communication are a fundamental part of a student’s learning process.
The higher expectation and new requirement of children means that new approaches to teaching are required. The older traditional method of teaching implies that more children will struggle to keep up with the complexity of the content being offered at school.
Alpha to Omega brings innovative teaching techniques and learning strategies to the child, developing cognitive strategy skills and working habits that can then be applied to problem solving situations. The level of complexity and abstraction increases as the child develops thus widening their horizons and their thinking skills to numerous situations, contexts and problems. Below is a summary of just a few of the techniques and exercises we use with children in building these core skills crucial for the new expectations in schools and life.
