At Superior Minds we believe education changes lives and changes the
world. We’re passionate about education and truly committed to making a
difference to every single student we meet.

Learning through play allows children to explore, practice and experiment in a fun, stimulating environment.

Although studying and teaching are the most traditional ways of learning, we very often forget that our children, and as adults ourselves, we can learn on our own, through independent study or play. Interacting with others informally, sharing our thoughts, findings and experiences, allows us to learn from one another. We also learn a great deal by doing things, using trial and error.

It is important to offer children a variety of ways to learn. In schools they receive specific, specially designed teaching methods designed to enhance learning. It is important to allow children to choose or experiment with ideas or learning styles. All children do not learn the same way and they do not have to learn different things in the same way – they do not have to stick to one method or style of learning. Learning how to learn is up to them and with help they can excel.

 

Learning through play allows children to explore, practice and experiment in a fun, stimulating environment. Creating a positive learning environment encourages children to become absorbed in what they’re doing making it fun to learn. It also helps develop concentration to the point where children are having so much fun they are learning without realising it. It builds confidence and self-worth by having confidence in your own abilities and feeling good by accomplishing something. This does not only include children of a young age but also includes older children and even adults.
Learning through play can encourage many skills. For example, board games require a thinking process and encourage strategy, puzzles skills and your ability to look for patterns. These skills are important for life in general and at times in school examinations such as Cognitive Ability Tests (CATS) or 11+ exams. These school entrance exams, include non-verbal and verbal reasoning tests to understand and analyse visual information and solve problems through reasoning. All of these skills can be practiced using a simple board game and whilst it may not be the traditional pen and paper method, it can hold great benefits when done in moderation.
Try playing a game one evening with your children and see which different learning skills they use throughout the game. Pay attention to how they focus, strategize and compete during the game. At the end of the game ask them what they think they learnt from it and compare their answers.
