Transcript of For kids ages 8 -14, our WGCU Curious Kids space is a one-of

Curious Kids
For kids ages 8 -14 our WGCU Curious Kids space is a one-of-a-kind learning environment for kids to choose from four to five activities that let them explore, experiment, write, create, design, or build. From fashion to construction, from music to IT, there is something for every kid. Parents are excluded from the space, so the older kids can be challenged in Curious Kids while adults explore other parts of the museum.

1. Learning is an active process in which the learner uses sensory input and constructs meaning out of it. Active Learners!

2. People learn to learn as they learn: learning consists both of constructing meaning and constructing systems of meaning.

3. The crucial action of constructing meaning is mental: it happens in the mind. Reflective Activity!!

4. Learning involves language: the language we use influences learning.

5. Learning is a social activity: our learning is intimately associated with our connection with other human beings, our teachers, our peers, our family as well as casual acquaintances, including the people before us or next to us at the exhibit. We are more likely to be successful in our efforts to educate if we recognize this principle rather than try to avoid it.

6. Learning is contextual. We learn in relationship to what else we know, what we believe, our prejudices and our fears. Learning is active and social!

7. One needs knowledge to learn: it is not possible to assimilate new knowledge without having some structure developed from previous knowledge to build on. The more we know, the more we can learn. Therefore any effort to teach must be connected to the state of the learner, must provide a path into the subject for the learner based on that learner's previous knowledge.

8. It takes time to learn: learning is not instantaneous. For significant learning we need to revisit ideas, ponder them try them out, play with them and use them.

9. Motivation is a key component in learning. Not only is it the case that motivation helps learning, it is essential for learning.
