Is classroom learning enough?

Is my child learning enough? Will my kid progress with what is being taught at school? These are a few common questions that every parent might have and they are right in thinking so.  Most of the school revolves around the concept of academics. Most children spend about six hours per day in school. The number tends to increase as the grade increases. How are we sure what students are learning or just studying.

Classroom teaching is a monotonous method of teaching wherein half the times kids end up losing their interest.  It is important for them to learn rather than just study before the exam, write it all out and then forget it the next day. It is essential for them to remember those concepts and implement them. Clearly, classroom teaching is not enough.

Children learn by observing, listening, exploring, experimenting and asking questions. Being interested, motivated and engaged in learning is important for children once they start school. It can also help if they understand why they’re learning something. One best form of learning is self learn. This way they get enough time to analyze the concepts, recall and connect them to their day-to-day life which lacks in the classroom teaching.

More often than not we see technology and learning two different subjects. But with the fast-growing kids, technology can be one of the most effective ways to learn. If I may ask you which of the two methods will be easier and effective to you: reading the Harry Potter book or watching the movie?

The answer with no second thoughts will be watching the movie. Similarly, audiovisuals can make kids learn better than classroom teaching. Kids will be able to learn better in less time. Also, the child gets to move away from the monotony of the books and resort to a fun and practical way of learning.
