One of the keys to personalising learning for your kids is to get to know how they learn at their best. Understand their genius. What great feedback from Cassie, especially on identifying the different genius types for her girls. Yes, I do believe everyone is a genius. I'm thinking of natural talents, skills and capabilities. Also, making the connection to the origin of the word 'genius'. Two Latin terms - Genii (guiding spirit) and Ingenium (innate dispositions, talents, and inborn nature). This blends the concepts of the divine and the talented

What great feedback from folk who attended the masterclass, Unlock the Power of Real-World Learning, held last week. As the weekend unfolds it is easy to find events and activities that can become part of real-world learning experiences for kids. Whether you are a parent of a young person, a homeschooling parent, or even a grandparent there are indoor and outdoor local and community happenings that can become a springboard for youngsters to learn new bits and pieces of information. Art galleries, museums, libraries, historic villages, cultural festivals, markets, walks in nature, car shows, and more. Connecting new knowledge with what they already know allows them to develop knowledge and understanding of the world around them. If you or someone you know would love to get some insights into how you can empower a child's learning journey with enriching, real-world experiences, then comment "Send me the link" and I'll share the recording from the masterclass.

Few activities are more engaging than storytelling. Students are primed to want to tell stories because they encounter them everywhere—watching Netflix, playing video games, scrolling social media.

The number of families choosing to homeschool keeps growing. There are many reasons why families choose to homeschool. Some home-based educators are ‘accidental homeschoolers’.
