A Child’s brain as they learn new skill

• Learning new skills is the best way to improve memory, better verbal intelligence and increased language skills.

• Practice makes perfect. The more adept you become at a skill, the less work your brain has to do. Over time, a skill becomes automatic and you don’t need to think about what you’re doing. This is because your brain is actually strengthening itself over time as you learn that skill.

• Learning new skills causes the brain grow larger.

• The learning process makes difference :

1. Let the child learn / discover new skills by himself without guidance or help to grow as better problem solver.

2. In order to learn new skills she/he need to learn to fail. Introduce “F” word in early stage. Let him/she face failure, to master his new skill.

3. Take time to learn new skills. Spend only 15 -30 minutes a day on a project. Instead of sitting down for hours on end to learn a skill, distributed practice is all about shorter, smaller sessions where you’re stimulating the link between the neurons more often throughout time.

4. Learn new skills before sleep. The study found that subjects who went to sleep right after learning something did significantly better in a series of memory tests.

    I guess #4 is another great reason to read with kids right before bed (not that I was looking for another reason…)

    Enjoying your blog – thanks!
