I learnt that children learn best when a teacher (I):
- first teaches through modelling ( I demonstrates, and children watch and follow),
- then followed by scaffolding (children do and I help),
- providing opportunity for children to try on their own,
- lastly, providing them with explanation (reasons for doing it).
I also learnt that people cannot learn much when they are alone, they have to learn in a social group, which is not perfect. They learn through trial and error to perfect their learning. (with reference to Vygotshy theroy). Therefore is important for early childhood teachers to provide enrichment rather than to hurry to accelerate children in their learning experience.
