Our Education Philosophy

Our aim is primarily to create interest in kids to learn as they Engage in our IT interaction education programs to secure HOT & Creative Problem Solving Skills.  This is founded on our belief that learning is a life-long engagement

We hope to help you to transform from traditional tutoring to a new iLearn role to serve the community better.  Your rote teachers will become facilitators to monitor and motivate kids to self learn while engaging in IT programs.  To ensure programs we choose is effective and practical, we constantly monitor the kids' progress & mindset..  

We will also continuously develop class room & follow up routines to educate our facilitators to make sure children' education is on track with our vision. The bonding of kids to facilitators and peers will be guided by concepts in Attachment Theory.

We also skewed to leading kids to a Structured Teaching Impact as it will speed up their up take of new concepts through their best sensing ability, vision. Click this to understand the relationship between Structured Teaching & Autism
With all these in place we hope your kid will have a 'Growth Mindset that is open & always wanting to Learn.'

 

 

 

What Kind of Mindset do your child have?
fixmind0Most children of today easily give up due to the our instant gratification materialistic environment. With spoon feeding education system, this is more pronounced.
Fixed type is thus prevalent.
What we hope to do here is to transform them to a Growth Mindset.

Learning work patterns from work book (rote teaching) does not produce smart kids. Holistic education comes from building solid unified education foundation. Only then workbooks compliment this true education.

Be vigilant to get a right 24 hours full time tutor to build your core education foundation from Primary One to Secondary. Once done, get the right peer pressure from i.Learn center & friends to build your Desire to Learn.

Education is about learning skills in i) Comprehension, ii) Research for Info and iii) Analysis, Reasoning & Relating. It is not about stuffing your mind with lots of facts or knowledge, a form of rote learning.

 

 

 

i Learning Classroom

Our strategies / framework will put in place classroom & monitoring routines to stir kids' mind to engage with interactive IT programs to secure.
These IT programs will act as Home Tutor 24 hours x 365 days a year. We can focus on Marshall Cavadish onLine Portal from the World's 30+ years Top Education Ranking Singapore or Turtle Diary & more (see below).fun
The education program in these Portal are well Structured. It is interactively stimulating & fun filled with its richly multi media content. It will take your child from Kinder, Primary to Secondary on 3 core subjects, namely English, Math & Science plus more.

iLearn, also called eLearn relates to IT but our "i" is more: SELF Engaging study.

 

 

 

MC and others has created an enriching environment that allow classroom facilitators to ensure sense of security among kids enabling them to share their teacher with their class mates. Here the teacher plays the substitute attachment figure role, children then is able to self learn by waiting their turn, secure in the fact that the facilitator will be able to take care of their needs. This frees the kids to take risks and tolerate frustrations in the learning process. This is our influence by the "Attachment Theory".

 

 

 

To date (dated Sep 17) following are two other good resources for children education that are FREE.

 

 

 

The classroom facilitators can play the following roles

1 Class: Cue next & Run this lesson

  • Explain Synopsis of lesson (for higher levels)
  • Explain Key Words/Concepts to help comprehension of lesson
  • Visual monitoring of comprehension of lesson
  • Run & Pause lesson to assess kids' engagement
  • Question without Answer & relating to REAL LIFE to enhance kid's engagement
  • Kids hands-on running to drive each lesson
  • **IT Orientation Lesson to ensure IT ability for 1st timers

2 Home: Tutorial, Activity & Quiz:

  • Motivate Home Repeats & complete Test through low key peer pressure
  • Schedule to do Test at Home until next lesson
  • To encourage kids' Engagement, a) develop Group Project eg converting Concept to Pictures using google & UTube b) IT communication is encouraged among peers.
  • On Line monitoring of kids' test progress

3 School Syllabus Merging & Report Cards

  • Weekly Report Card in Class to motivate lesson completion
  • Comparison with Malaysian School syllabus to compete for A's. When foundation is built, workbooks will act only as more practice at the end.
  • Quarterly Report Card to Parents

 

 

 

Rote Learning

Perhaps a good way to look at Rote Learning is to read this article from the web.rote

When you struggle to find parking in my neighborhood shopping lot, which is otherwise seldom busy, you know it must be Monday or Thursday afternoons, the time when Indian kids stream into the tiny Kumon center wedged between a taco shop and a used-clothes store.

What attracts so many of our parents to the Kumon philosophy? Is it because the learning-by-rote method reminds us of our own schooling in India, which we perceive as “more academic” than the self-learning process encouraged in American schools, which we disdain as not academically rigorous enough?

Whatever the reason, adding to this reasoning is the constant barrage of media reports decrying that the American public school system has failed our kids. We are told that our kids perform dismally on international tests and consistently rank well below kids in other countries.

Builder's reflection: Rote Learning requires continous stuffing your kid with unco-ordinated knowledge for at least 10 years (what a life?);  in iLearning your kid is motivated to learn on their own (quality of life).

Suddenly, everyone is talking abut “Singapore Math” and “Korean methodology.” It seems strange then that all those graduates in Singapore have contributed very little to the knowledge base of the world, but some of our graduates and even school drop-outs have gone on to start companies that have changed the world!

Recently, a friend’s son, a level-headed smart young kid, who had barely turned 19 announced that he was dropping out of school to start his own company. The interesting aspect about this conversation was that the announcement was actually received with admiration and respect, instead of a brusque admonition to be practical and stop pipe-dreaming.

We in the valley know the value of creativity and risk-taking. In a world which is becoming more competitive by the day, standing out by doing something different is a valued attribute. The ability to constantly reinvent ourselves is almost a job requirement these days. As an educator, I’ve witnessed the gradual shift in pedagogical focus from merely acquiring knowledge to learning how to apply it successfully. Now our kids are not so much required to know how many wives the apparently insatiable King Henry had, as in theorizing how that could have set the stage for the women’s rights movement later.

Recent research has shown that original thinking is not just something that happens out of the blue to a select few, but is actually a trait that can be acquired.

According to this research, knowledge has two components, rational thinking and intuition. The first can be compared to textbook knowledge, with sequential, logical thinking resulting in a flowchart of the thought process. The other component, intuition (or what we call instinct), is a cognitive capability, a sudden burst of understanding that offers an immediate solution, which is actually our subconscious instantly weighing things we aren’t even aware of.

Taking an example close to home, the power of intuition has been amply borne out by Steve Jobs’ stupendous success. Apple’s innovative products have been attributed to his intuitive ability to instantly perceive the value of an idea and help bring it to fruition. In his opinion, the snap decisions subconsciously made were better than a conclusion reached after hours of analysis. After a trip to India, Steve Jobs observed, “The people in the Indian countryside don’t use their intellect like we do, they use their intuition instead, and the intuition is far more developed than in the rest of the world … Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion. That’s had a big impact on my work.” Perhaps we should just go back to our roots!

While these two components of knowledge actually complement each other, it is believed that too much of the former actually inhibits the latter. This is where Kumon and other rote-based learning methods come in. While memorization and practice undoubtedly have their place in the learning pyramid, treating them as a major learning component
on a long-term basis can actually stifle intuition and hinder the acquisition of knowledge. 

To give a mathematical example, memorizing the quadratic formula gives kids a fail-safe method to solve the quadratic equation, but total understanding can only result when kids solve it graphically as well, giving rise to innumerable real-life applications and literally making the equation come alive before their eyes, and the realization of why some equations don’t have real solutions slowly dawns upon them. That is self-learning at its best.

As a teacher, I’ve concluded that rote-learning leads parents to think that it is more valuable merely because it is more time-intensive, but it actually makes you lazy because you’ve been presented with ready facts, with no extended thinking for your brain to grapple with.
This idea may strike a chord with parents of high school kids who sign up for another Indian favorite, the AP (Advanced Placement)/Honors courses.

One parent I know lamented that her kid had done very well in middle school, and had therefore signed up for several advanced courses, but now felt overwhelmed and unable to cope. One reason could be that these college-level courses typically taken during the sophomore or junior years at high school, focus not on memorizing facts and figures, but on conceptual thinking. Original thinking may be hard for the student who has rarely had the opportunity to do so.

Students in honors classes engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively. Clearly, the student who possesses high degrees of both knowledge components will exhibit better problem-solving abilities, a core requirement in successfully completing these courses.

So parents, do answer your child’s whats, wheres, and whens, but encourage them to ask the whys and hows as well!

Does Rote Learning have a Place in 21st Century Education?

In the 21st century classroom, learning environment factors such as college curriculum, administration, and classroom environment strongly discourage the use of rote learning. But why?

When rote memorization is applied as the main focus of learning, it is not considered higher-level thought or critical thinking. Opponents to rote memorization argue that creativity in students is stunted and suppressed and students do not learn how to think, analyze or solve problems.  These educators believe, instead, that a more associative or constructive learning should be applied in the classroom.

Oftentimes, teachers are scorned for “teaching to the test,” referring to standardized testing, and are criticized for applying rote memorization as a foundational skill.

However, when the argument focuses on rote learning as an either/or situation, rote learning is stigmatized as a technique that “lazy” or “uninformed” teachers use. But, in reality, rote learning and higher-level thinking are actually intimately intertwined.  Learn more about how rote learning, when used in moderation, can actually help to improve student learning and performance.

Rote learning as a building block

Consider this: How do students learn the alphabet or multiplication tables if not through rote memorization. For that matter, can a high school chemistry student progress without having the Table of Elements memorized? The same concept applies across the board.

While it’s not a means to an end, rote learning is necessary if you want to engage in higher-level thinking. After all, can you do calculus or engineering-math, or even basic algebra, if you’re constantly having to remember how to multiply, or having to look up functions and operations? That method would take forever. And you won’t likely have “ah-ha” moments or breakthroughs. To truly engage in higher level thinking, student must first learn basic material and memorize this material so they can refer to it later down the road when dealing with more advanced lessons and learning.

This same principle also applies to spelling. Although everyone today uses word processors with spell check, spelling is still important when filling out forms and writing letters. Knowing how to spell makes writing easier and faster.

Chemistry can be used as another example.  A student will definitely miss out on some moments of deeper understanding and critical thinking if they don’t memorize their elements and know them by heart! Really, this memorization is required to fully grasp the subject.

It’s not an either/or matter

Rote learning and memorization do not equal higher-level thinking, and should not replace one for the other. However, rote learning it is the cornerstone of higher-level thinking and should not be ignored. Especially in today’s advanced technology world, rote memorization might be even more important than ever! Think of rote learning as the the filing system for your brain. If you can easily access the information when performing a certain task, the brain is free to make major leaps in learning.

Of course, the student can get by using a scientific calculator or Google. But the critical thinking becomes less of a factor, creating an even more institutionalized version of learning in the 21st century.
