Premise

Digital devices have opened up the world to us but sadly with it highly distracted minds have become the norm. Are our children maximizing the use of digital technology to build character, confidence and capability? We invite you to Join us online daily to enhance communication skills and more. The goal of our learning circle is to build personal confidence through practice.

Description

When children learn to express their opinions, they will develop into independent thinkers and problem solvers. Good communication skills therefore proved a foundation for our future success. OPINION WRITING DAILY PRACTICE DIGITAL LITERACY = SUCCESS• Writing is the foundation of communication. Our voice is activated while writing. This helps build a strong base for our speaking skills • Opinions do matter! Voicing them builds our confidence. The strength of articulation, relevancy, creativity, solution-ing adds weight to our opinions • Daily practice is needed to build strong habits and hone-in our skills • Digital literacy is a critical skill needed to navigate and succeed in today's digital economyCHALLENGES- Constrained by the teachers, system and time (respectfully)- Worried about making mistakes- Too much focus on perfection versus progression- Highly judgement based LEARNING ENGAGEMENTA learning circle is facilitated for four weeks in a month, three days a week (T, W, Th) and 30-45 minutes a day.
