The use of baby flash cards provide an environment that stimulate a child and are most conducive for promoting growth of a healthy brain. Use of baby flash cards by association of the sound, and action or object, is a structured approach for the parent or teacher.

Baby flash cards and Learning

  2. 2. Baby flash cards fromwww.365kidcrafts.com<br />Learning and Neuroscience<br />While baby learning and educational practice has always been research based, it has been mostly based on behavioral research. <br />Modern advances in neuroscience have made a tremendous amount of new information available for baby learning programs. <br />New technologies, including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT scans), have enabled scientists to see different aspects of brain functioning. This new wealth of knowledge provided by technology promises to provide valuable insight into the brain and learning. <br />
  3. 3. Learning through technology <br />As this new research becomes available, certain aspects of baby learning and learning in general have become apparent. We can group these into four established findings. <br />These four findings relate to many aspects of baby learning, but relate particularly to learning through the assistance of technology. <br />
  4. 4. 1. Learning environment<br />The first finding concerns the importance of the learning environment. It appears that the brain changes physiologically as it encounters different environments. <br />Environments that stimulate a child are most conducive for promoting growth of a healthy brain (Wolfe & Brandt, as cited in Baylor).<br />Baby flash cards fromwww.365kidcrafts.com<br />
  5. 5. 2. IQ is not fixed at birth<br />Wolfe & Brandt also contend that IQ is not fixed at birth, but rather, that the brain can continue to grow and develop throughout our lives. <br />This is a significant finding for learning, and a wide choice of teaching options provided by the parents will give opportunities for children to discover and build on their own identity. <br />Baby flash cards fromwww.365kidcrafts.com<br />
  6. 6. 3. Periods of learning<br />Another important finding is that there are specific sensitive periods of learning, during which certain abilities are acquired more easily than during other times.<br />Using technology at an early age with baby learning programs could be more important than educators had previously considered. The problem-solving and critical thinking that coincides with use of technology would theoretically help to maximize brain growth and learning during these critical learning windows of opportunity (Jensen, cited by Baylor). <br />So our recommendation is the early use of baby learning programs will provide substantial benefits for a babies’ developing brain.<br />
  7. 7. 4. Emotions are linked to learning<br />The final important finding is that emotions are closely linked to learning. <br />We believe supportive technology with appropriate content, visual and sound effects can be an excellent method for delivering the kind of positive emotions children need for healthy brain development and learning.<br />Baby flash cards fromwww.365kidcrafts.com<br />

  9. 9. Baby flash cards<br />The baby flash cards DVD program was created for babies, toddlers and children from 3 months old to 6 years old. Each DVD includes a 20-day program to stimulate your child's left brain and another 20-day program for the right brain. <br />Both the DVD programs for left and right brain run automatically as a show so you can sit with your child and repeat the sounds with them. <br />With Series 1 & 2 you have a program with more than1,100 baby flashcards<br />Baby flash cards fromwww.365kidcrafts.com<br />
