While many people think that self-learning can be daunting, we believe it is the best way to understand concepts.
According to Malcolm Knowles, self-learning is “a process by which individuals take the initiative, with or without the assistance of others, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying human and material resources for learning, and evaluating learning outcomes.”
In the age of independence and the 21st century, we want our students to feel highly capable of marching towards their goals with confidence and choose the right path towards a successful career. In this process, self-learning can be very useful.
With the Finnish education system at TAS, we aim to make it possible for children to go beyond their limits and learn. Self-study can always make a significant base for children in building a brighter future.
How will self-learning help your child?
● Self-learning develops the ability to manage learning tasks without having them directed by others.
● The skill helps in effective and lifelong learning.
● Self-learning can build confidence in your child.
● It helps your child in being independent.
● It gives him/her the ability to progress without being dependant
● It develops a sense of responsibility in the child.
● It helps the child in planning and managing his/her tasks.
● It creates a deep involvement of the child in what he/she is learning.
● It encourages the child to escape the boundaries and learn beyond them.
● It helps in understanding his/her flaws and limits.
We at TAS believe that students have the power to make a positive change in the world. But to make this positive change possible, we first need to build an environment where they will feel independent and be allowed to make their own decisions. All this is possible with self-learning, which we will be introducing through the Finnish education system. Self-learning is essential to be a part of academics because students are expected to make some of their decisions independently, and it can be pretty confusing for them. That is why we think it is crucial for children to be self-sufficient and motivated because they can only progress in life.
