Welcome to Learning Connect
LEARNING CONNECT is an educator’s tool that helps teachers with learning approaches that create more and deeper connections. It is a repository of all the “tried and true” engaging processes that good teachers have used over the years. Learning Connect uses a journey of learning discovery that requires high quality thinking that enhances content meaning, understanding and retention. Each scientifically-proven strategy is imbedded with the learning and processing skills that must be activated to increase student learning and achievement.
This self-discovery of knowledge takes students from surface learning to a deep learning experience that requires reflection and reorganization of thought, This proprietorship and restructuring of knowledge ensures comprehension and long-term retention.
Students are encouraged to question their current awareness and develop skills in critical thinking, problem-solving and expression.. It allows students to activate their thinking, apply their new knowledge, while analyzing and drawing conclusions on their own. They learn to communicate their final learning conclusions and connect them to real-world applications. Public speaking, leadership and teamwork is infused within the small group and class learning processes.
The largest struggle for teachers is not learning new approaches to teaching, but how to create and implement effective learning strategies, for all students, with the limited time and resources provided. With the use of Learning Connect, teacher testimony claims that student achievement doubled from January to May, Learning Connect reduces the use of surface learning, low-recognition study sheets, and rote memory for student learning. It provides a refined learning process, with the optional infusion of instant voice activated tools, to assist any teacher in raising student achievement and increasing student success in today's classroom.
