Given the breakthroughs in technology and neuroscience, our educational paradigms have been shifting and changing over the last decade, and that shift has been accelerated and intensified by this current pandemic.
With all the changes, we have a unique opportunity to help children develop one of life’s most important skills: how to learn independently. If we can teach our children how to learn, and if we can inspire them with a love of learning, they will be able to do anything they want.
