by Understanding How They Learn
September 21, 2011. Milwaukie, Oregon. Smart, intelligent, intuitive, creative, brainy? Absolutely. Due to the reality of school budget cuts today, it has become increasingly important for parents to continue the learning process at home. With that, parents have become more challenged to understand how their children learn and how to best help them learn.
Develop brain cells with a homegrown TAG program
Who doesn’t want to think of their child as a TAG (talented and gifted) candidate? Yet these programs are not available to every child. “When teachers teach to groups instead of the individual, parents must take on the responsibility of becoming a TAG educator. For children not as gifted, self-pacing allows them to learn at a highly accelerated rate. If a parent is to inspire a child with accelerated learning, it has to be done at home,” says Marilynne Eichinger, educator, former museum president and current president of Informal Education Products (d/b/a Museum Tour Catalog).
Enrichment and accelerated learning
Every parent knows what Garrison Keillor says is true…”Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us ….and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted. Individual attention from parents gives meaning to learning and teaches a child to think outside the box. This provides children with the understanding that there are different ways of thinking, making life much more interesting.
Museum Tour offers parental assistance
Identifying learning styles is Museum Tour’s objective. Museum Tour’s role is to provide enrichment and accelerated learning tools to parents who are dedicated to continuing the educational experience at home. The company’s educators guide them through the selection of enrichment items, educational toys, developmental books, and learning games that are appropriate for the different ages and learning styles of their child(ren).
The company’s philosophy is great toys teach, entertain, surprise, inspire and invite inquiry.
The just released 15th annual issue of Museum Tour Catalog is based on Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences and Piaget’s ideas about developmental learning. All of the products in the catalog are categorized by theme and attributes of each product are identified. Learning style assistance is also available on the Museum Tour website, museumtour.com
Twenty two museums nationwide joined Museum Tour in its endeavor to extend the museum experience into homes and provide educational aids for parents. Museum members also share in the company’s year-end profits. To date, Museum Tour has donated $300,000 to its museum members.
