As parents, we devote our efforts to providing the best possible education for our children so that they can be prepared for the future – a future we can’t predict. We know however, that high pressure and an overzealous focus on memorization of facts can often be counterproductive in the long run. To help children become capable, independent learners, parents and students must learn to understand the secrets to being successful learners. In his book, The Art of Learning: The Importance of Failing Well, Lance G. King shares his more than twenty years of research and experience with learners and learning methods. He introduces the reader to how they can master the various components for successful learning: the effort needed, self-motivation and resilience required to succeed, effective learning skills and desired wisdom through difficult times. Now Mr. King is bringing this knowledge to Beijing to work with parents!
Through interesting case studies, Lance G. King employs easy to understand language to explain his profound theories and gives practical approaches for their application. Successful learning is not just for the genius, explains King, and every parent can become a mentor for their children by mastering “the art of learning”. Join us for this informative and collaborative parent session where we will explain how every child has the opportunity to become a successful learner, with the resilience with the courage to overcome the barriers they will face.
