Personal Philosophies of Education

Everything has a philosophy that can be applied to it. You can put your own spin on any event you encounter in your personal life. How about applying philosophies to your education? It is something that is very important; therefore, you should look for various ways to get the most out of your learning experiences. Let’s discuss examples.

The learning process starts after birth. Babies begin learning things right away; however, they can only learn a limited amount of things on their own. If you are a parent, talk to your babies to help them develop their speech and vocabulary skills. Read to your babies while showing them your book to help them learn to read.

After your babies become a little advanced, do your best to teach them how to spell and write. Teach them basic math. For example, you could put five apples in front of your kids and ask them, “If I take away two of these apples, how many will be left?”

There are other things you can do to boost your kids’ educational development. Teach them how to behave and think rationally at all times. Introduce them to PBS and “Sesame Street”.

Education can be fun. If you are a student, think of your classroom and homework experiences as adventures that will take you to a paradise above the clouds. If you choose to have fun when you attend classes or study, you will have more educational success and increase your chances of living a life of utopia.

Good behavior will allow you to have more fun at school. The less time you spend serving a punishment, the more fun you will have; furthermore, you should not want your classmates to ridicule you for standing in the corner or taking a trip to the principal’s office.

Learning can be accomplished through special tools. You are likely to have an easier time grasping some of your material through great gadgets such as flash cards, vocabulary games, educational games and software that focuses on education.

Learning is sometimes accomplished visually. If you are a kid, learn geography by looking at a map of a country such as The United States and then fill in the names of the states or territories of that country on a blank map while you are not looking at the completed map.

Motor skills must be learned. Do things that will help you develop physical dexterity and hand-eye coordination. Work on jigsaw puzzles. Play video games. Grip and lift a quarter between your fingers. Touch a mark on a wall with each finger on both hands a few times.

It is your responsibility to physically learn to do things through personal application. You must start doing what someone shows you because you actually become competent at something by doing it in addition to watching how it is done.

As we move ahead in the Technology Age, it is becoming more important to learn how to type quickly and accurately. Work on typing exercises and games. Concentrate on how to type the various letters on your keyboard. Use your left hand to type a T’, G’, V’ and all letters to the left of them. Use your right hand to type a Y’, H’, B’ and all letters to the right of them.

You must take learning proper grammar and punctuation seriously. You will improve your odds of finding a good job and earning job promotions if you speak and write well. If you have good writing skills, you can directly increase the amount of money you earn throughout your life by getting many articles you write published by Internet sites that pay for article submissions. If you submit enough quality articles, you could receive a high ranking and earn more money than poor writers.

It is a mistake to be too proud to get help to improve your grades. If you struggle with a subject, get tutoring or spend time with your teacher when your class is not in session.

A good education is the best gift you can give yourself. Put these philosophies to use every day to get a great reward!
