Pro-Tip – Independent learning

Words of encouragement shared by an achievement leader at my nephews school recently.

Independent learning, building resilience and developing self-motivation. These are all aspects of learning skills which can only stand you in good stead for your future endeavours.

Like remote working, the nation has also turned into home school learners, children and parents/carers.

Independent learning draws from constructivist theories that suggest that knowledge is created by the learner rather than being imparted or transferred. Learners need to understand how they are constructing their learning in order to reuse and apply their cognitive processes in new circumstances.

Independent learning is important because it develops creativity and intellectual curiosity. Independent learning is about pupils being active rather than passive. It is about them working out the answers rather than being told them.

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from stress, adversity, failure, challenges, or even trauma. … Resilient kids are more likely to take healthy risks because they don’t fear falling short of expectations. They are curious, brave, and trusting of their instincts.

Resilience is the psychological strength to deal with stress, setbacks, crises and an array of hardships that confront us in life. When life situations get out of kilter, resilience is the one quality and skill we need most to get us through the difficult times.

Resilience is what gives people the psychological strength to cope with stress and hardship. It is the mental reservoir of strength that people are able to call on in times of need to carry them through without falling apart.

Fostering self-motivation in your child is easier than you think.
