Pyramid Philosophical

Thursday, November 09, 2006


By just listening carefully, can we overcome the inability to communicate effectively in terms of any mismatch in learning styles? Understanding properly.

An imaginative child may visualise and may have difficulty ‘seeing’ what a teacher means if that teacher is logical and analytical in their approach.

I believe that a good teacher will recognise the issue for what it is. The ‘sending’ description must be altered to match the ‘receiving’ child and it is the teacher’s responsibility to change the approach. A poor teacher may simply assume the child is stupid and cannot understand, where in reality, the child may be very intelligent, but has been wrongly condemed.

It is possibly the teacher at fault and the consequences of that are awful.
