What are Learning Strategies?

We have heard of curriculum. We have heard of Pedagogy. But what are learning strategies? At The Gaudium the emphasis on the child is on being happy and joyful in the process of learning – learning that touches all the senses. To be able to do this requires that the child is involved and excited about the possibilities that he/she sees in what lies ahead in the learning graph. Learning is not just about imbibing subjects or understanding concepts. It is the ability to be able to apply those learnings to real life situations.

This consequently also means the learning is not limited to what we term the ‘regular subjects’. They could reach into culture, values and personality building.

In addition there is a special module – ‘Value Creating Education’ Module – which helps the c
