Children and education final

  1. 1. Children and Education Education Project Suad Alhalwachi
  2. 2. Hypothesis Learning styles are important in how children are taught • Techniques that help connect what you are Learning to your Personal Goals • Structuring information makes learning faster • Strengthen Knowledge and Skills, which in turn over come Obstacles • Improve survival skills and can be implemented in personal and career aspects
  3. 3. Personality types/learning orientation (Myers Briggs) to effectively and efficiently communicate with people and help them learn are: • Sensory-Intuitive: Providing hard facts and general concepts • Visual-Verbal: Incorporating visual and verbal cues • Active-Reflective: Experimental learning with time to evaluate and analyze • Sequential-Global: Giving the big picture, showing details in a structured way
  4. 4. Research Methodology • Survey prepared using Monkey Survey • Survey sent to children ages 8-17, all of them answered thorough their social media pages, and sent the results to researcher as a message on facebook. • The results mirrored the concepts of the ‘Learning Technique’ methodology
  5. 5. Survey Questions 1- do you prefer to learn: reading a book watching a movie clip hearing a tape or creating by hand 2. tell me which subject teacher do you like 3. tell me why you like that teacher 4. which subject you prefer in school 5. why do you like the subject? because of the teacher or because of the subject itself 6. do you like to have one teacher only teaching you everything or a teacher per subject 7. do you like to go on school trips? 8. do you like to be taught inside the class or outside ( in a park or by the beach) 9. have you ever been on a school camp? and does your school invite you to go on camps? 10. which sport do you prefer 11. how many languages do you learn 12. do you like to learn languages? 13. have you written a short story? 14. have you visited the library? do you like it? 15. did you enter school competitions? 16. What would you do if you were asked to open a school?
  6. 6. Motivation • During an Education reforms conference held in 2009 in Bahrain, I raised the question of how we consider liberality of education and the elevation of spoon feeding if we do not hear from those involved, • Thus suggesting that we bring their views to the forefront to help educators and investors to establish the right school communities.
  7. 7. The Panel • The survey was carried out by 125 people, all of whom answered most of the questions • A panel comprising of children from the age group of 8 to 17 was chosen, to show how this age group perceive education and their preferences
  8. 8. The Best School was Suggested • One where there are plenty of outdoor sports activities, more interesting lessons been taught and the way its taught, more classes to be creative and more variety of food • The choice to use modern technology (laptops) to take notes instead of books, sitting outside in the fresh air or in a more colorful and attractive looking classroom • The freedom to have their say in terms of less work and more play, choice on subjects they want to learn and the way the management runs the school
  9. 9. Survey Results Confirmed the Hypothesis
  10. 10. Which Sport do you prefer?
  11. 11. How many languages do you learn
  12. 12. Do you like to learn languages
  13. 13. Short stories?
  14. 14. Library visits
  15. 15. School Competitions
  16. 16. If I wanted to open a school, I would do it in my own way: please explain More Activities and Competitions Healthy Food and More Choice Longer Hours Fewer Hours Smaller Class Size More School Trips More Interesting/Fun Lessons Less Tests/Exams Longer Hours for Sports and More Options Longer Holidays Longer Break Time Study Outside Pupils Choice(subjects, laptops, lockers, languages) Better Management and Teaching (more fun, advisors, rules and regulations) Better Environment to Study
  17. 17. If you had your own school, how would you run it?
  18. 18. “I would provide two languages of the students choice. Also, I would have a wider choice of lunches rather than just one. I would have some lessons outside and some inside.” “I would make the lessons fun and interesting so the pupils want to learn. Lessons would be more practical and students would not be in the classroom all the time.”
  19. 19. “I would have less writing in books and more discussing and hands on experience with the topics.” “I would have all lessons taught in a fun way using practical examples and hands on experiments”
  20. 20. “The school would have lots of competitions and extra curricular activities” “I would do more outside involved lessons and more school trips.”
  21. 21. “I would hire teachers to not only teach students, but enlighten them on morals and ethics in order to be good citizens of the world.”
  22. 22. “Pupils should be able to bring in packed lunches if they wanted to. Pupils can choose the subjects they want to do, but they must do some mandatory subjects and a kind of sport.” “I would make it as fun as I can and I would get the kids more involved with the sports so they are fit and healthy.”
  23. 23. “I would open a special needs school.”

The school will have school trips to good places and camps if the students are interested and some after school activities.
  73. 73. The only autocratic answer • Yes, I would run a school my own way because I like to have rules of my own, and I want the students to obey my rules.
