What Is Education?

Education – a topic that people have debated over for centuries. What’s the best approach? How do we know when a certain method is working? Should education be tailored specifically to the learner? At Norton House, we believe in 4 simple steps that guarantee academic success and the most efficient way to develop students’ potential:
教育這個話題始終多次被人們討論,到底什麼才是最佳的教育方式?人們如何瞭解哪一種方式才真正有效?教育是否應該因材施教?在Norton House,我們始終堅持以下四種方式,來確保以最高效的方式開發學生潛能:

 

1) Education Should Be Tailor-Made 教育應當因材施教
It has come to the attention of education specialists in the 21st century that different people learn things in different ways. One popular theory, the VARK model, identifies four primary types of learners: visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinaesthetic. Therefore while the knowledge being taught remains the same, the method in which it is taught strongly depends on the individual who has to learn the concepts and information.
21世紀的教育者們應當了解,針對不同的學生應採取不同的教育方式。有一個很流行的教育理論—VARK,分別利用視覺,聽覺等多種方式教導學生。即便教授的知識內容相同,教育者仍應該針對學生的背景和能力,採取不同的方式讓學生學習。

 

2) An Efficient System To Measure Progress 擁有完善而高效的系統測試學習進度
It is common for mainstream schooling systems to hand out student reports every quarter or so. However, when one takes the number of school months into account, we notice that student evaluation is not at the frontline of potential improvement methods. Therefore, teacher evaluations of students should be released on a monthly basis at the very minimum to ensure attention is paid to specific areas that need improvement. It is only through evaluation can we discover how to refine ourselves.
主流的學校體系,通常都會在每個季度審視學生的學習報告。儘管如此,很多學校的學習報告中,並沒提供幫助學生進一步提升的方法指導。因此,教師對於學生的評測,應當至少每個月進行一次,確保對學生應到提升的部分保持關注。

 

3) 21st Century Learning 21世紀的學習方法
Having a strong ability in the area of technology is regarded as the most sought after skill of the 21st century. Society is rapidly evolving into a world that is digital-based, and humanity has only been able to keep up with this demand through the implementation and development of technology. Those who find themselves having grown up with technology and are therefore digitally native, have a stronger chance of landing higher-paid and career-fulfilling jobs.
21世紀最需要擁有的能力,就是要掌握科技。目前的社會快速進步,不斷變成一個數碼化科技化的社會,人們需要不斷進步才能追上科技的浪潮。那些掌握科技技術的人,會擁有較強的競爭力及較豐厚的薪水。

 

4) Lateral Thinking Development 拓展發散思維
To excel in often notorious school subjects such as mathematics and the sciences, students must possess a strong logical foundation. By exercising this from a young age with carefully prepared logical development exercises (catered for certain age groups and levels), students will carry these essential academic and life skills into their adolescence and adulthood.
在學校學習數學或是科學等科目,學生必須擁有較強的邏輯思維能力。所以孩子應該在較小的時候,接受邏輯思維訓練,而類似的訓練,將使學生受益終生。

 

By following these four simple guidelines, students will be primed and ready for a successful future and fruitful academic career. By combining these elements, an all-round education and well-prepared intellectual mind will be developed, lasting you for a lifetime and ensuring you get ahead in life.
透過以上的教育方法,學生們不斷儲備知識和能力,在未來擁有成功的人生。這就是全方位教育的優勢所在,可以幫助學生終生學習,不斷開發潛力,提升能力,擁有卓越人生!
