A FIRST WORLD LEARNING PLAN FROM AFRICA

Through these African communities, I gained an understanding of the crucial developmental factors necessary for the elaboration of full learning potential. Having observed and been privileged to share their life, I offer this summary as my idea of a "First World" plan to support learning and brain development:

A. A rich sensory environment full of sound, touch, smell and visual stimuli.

B. Lots of movement and the ability to freely explore one's own body in space.

C. Security and basic needs gratification that fosters full exploration of the physical environment.

D. Parents or other adults available as listeners, consultants and interactive participants in each child's growth.

E. Plenty of time and practice for pattern recognition - of sensory-motor patterns, language patterns, rhythm and music patterns and human relationship patterns.

F. The establishment of responsibilities, boundaries, and respect for self and others.

G. Encouragement of imagination, art, music, communication and interactive play.

quoted from "Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head" by Carla Hannaford, page 209

Small children should be supervised by a caregiver when at a computer, to ensure no accidents occur that could hurt the child and that no equipment gets broken.
