A Child’s Real Gifts
What will my child grow up to be?” This question is one that most parents ask themselves most frequently.
Doctor or engineer are the preferred choice of profession for most parents for their children, with an expected better future life behind the reason – but at the expense of the child’s real gifts and potential.
But gone are the days of that perception. Parents are increasingly aware that each child has his or her own interests, talents and strengths that need to be developed constantly for their future success in life.
However, knowing what their child’s talents and strengths are remains a great challenge, as it entails adopting the right strategies and approaches.
That’s why this special edition on education addresses these issues, and hopefully will be able to respond to the challenges.
In a piece entitled ‘Creating learning communities, increasing student achievement’, you will find that learning is not a matter of transferring knowledge and skills but a process of assisting students to find their unique potentials and eventually transforming them into an individual with the desired qualities.
‘Searching for a child’s potential’ reveals how parents in today’s era attempt to find what their child is good at and their potential early on to provide him or her with the best, most suitable education.
There is also a piece that specifically discusses middle school education, which provides an answer to the question of how to keep students engaged in learning.
On top of that, we also present pieces related to education level, which is seeing dynamic changes. In a piece entitled ‘A quiet revolution in education’, you can find how changes are taking place in higher education, one of which is related to teaching strategies that have a close correlation with the learning outcome.
For parents whose child is about to pursue higher education, there is also a useful guide on how to prepare university application. And many more pieces worth knowing. Happy reading!
