Have you ever found it difficult to learn new things when your interest level was very low?
How does this compare to learning new things that you are very interested in, for example hobbies that you pursue in your free time?
Most of us find much more success and enjoyment in learning when it involves something that interests us, or makes us feel fulfilled. Children are no different. When they are given the opportunity to include something that they are passionate or curious about in their learning, the result is often profound and extensive.
Children from a young age can benefit from the freedom of choice in their environment, as well as the opportunity to explore. Their natural curiosities can help them in connecting their academics with their passions. The pedagogy of student-led learning is most often seen in the school-age classroom, but does benefit early childhood classrooms as well. Allowing for student-led learning can create engaged students who take ownership of their learning and academics, provide opportunities for deeper learning and understanding of key concepts and can prove to be an effective motivator for all students. Whether you are a teacher in a public school, private school, or child care professional, there are many ways that student-led learning can benefit your program.
