Motivation to learn for better student results
Children absorb everything they see around them from an early age, and even later, during adolescence. They observe the behavior of their parents and teachers, and shape their personalities imitating the observed behavioral model. This is why a child must be approached with care and dedication, not only at home, but at school as well.
When it comes to motivation to learn, teachers at Allison Academy encourage students to learn and explore the world in a safe environment, using the latest methodological approaches, which inevitably brings about positive results:
- A child’s personality is nurtured.
- Their interest in different areas is encouraged.
- Students experience learning as a natural and fun process.
Motivation to learn is something that must be taken into account from an early age, because children start to form habits very early, so they need to be motivated to fulfill their school responsibilities and activities on time.
The task of all employees at our school is to improve student motivation as much as possible so they focus on their tasks and achieve their best results.
Why is motivation to learn important for students?
The timeless question all parents ask is how to motivate a child to study. Student motivation is one of the primary tasks of all employees at Allison Academy, and parents can be assured that their child will be properly guided and taught to learn independently and perform most of their responsibilities on their own.
The time children spend at school is used to the maximum. Not only do students acquire knowledge in a new and engaging way, but they also develop motivation to learn and continue interest in acquiring new knowledge.
Some of the methods used at Allison Academy to encourage students to learn:
1. Motivation to learn through an individual approach with each child
Teachers at Allison Academy observe each child to identify their specific needs and interests, encouraging their further development.
This way, we further develop their motivation to learn and guide them toward areas they are interested in and show an inclination toward. When it comes to areas a child doesn’t show much interest in, teachers use special learning techniques, mind maps, as well as different developmental games to encourage children’s motivation and desire to learn.
2. Child is free to explore in different spaces as long as they are safe
Students are allowed to explore on their own within the school, because this approach nurtures their entrepreneurship and an active attitude toward the world. We take care of the safety and security of each child so that they can explore and discover the world in a safe environment.
The conditions at Allison Academy make it easy to motivate students to take a proactive approach to learning and exploration. Independence in learning is developed in small groups where every child can develop critical thinking and their own sense of creativity. The modern educational approach cultivated in our school encourages and motivates independent learning and the development of multiple intelligences in students.
3. Practical and sensory activities
With the use of natural materials and age-appropriate objects, students are encouraged to participate in as many practical activities as possible: the younger students make simple decorations for their classroom and maintain the tidiness of their study corners, older students plant trees in the schoolyard and help design and decorate the school interior by participating in school clubs and workshops, etc, and all of them adopt good manners, and the principles of camaraderie and care for others. At Allison Academy, a child feels fulfilled while creatively arranging their environment.
4. Space and equipment equally suitable for both the youngest and the oldest students
Every classroom at Allison Academy is specifically designed with regard to the students’ ages, and represents a place where everything is tailored to fit the needs of the students. Ergonomic chairs, shelves, lockers and desks are age-appropriate and allow students to perform their activities unhindered, because they can feel that this world was designed with their needs in mind.
5. There is no competitiveness among the students – they all grow together
Instead of tests, assessment and the cultivation of a competitive spirit that often puts children under a lot of stress, we at Allison Academy allow every child to develop their inner sense of satisfaction when they succeed at something, and to use it to fuel their motivation to learn. The students encourage each other to succeed and celebrate good results together, whereas older ones happily compete with each other in duels, demonstrating their knowledge, talent and dexterity.
This is a way to further develop children’s motivation to learn, because they won’t feel unnecessary pressure if they learn that their friends have better results in some subjects than they do.
Allison Academy is a kingdom where children reign supreme and where they can freely develop together, with the absolute support of dedicated teachers. Regardless of their year of study, teaching and the environment at Allison Academy will be specifically adapted to the age and needs of your child.
