Use basic, child psychology approaches to support children’s learning

Child thinking

There are so many things to look at, listen to and touch in a classroom, that children can easily become distracted from what it is they’re supposed to be doing. So, it’s important to help them develop ways to improve their concentration and help process information in a way that’s meaningful to them. Following on from my introduction to child psychology, this article will look at why it is important in a learning environment. I will cover some psychological theories and perspectives on learning, and describe some examples of how you can use them.
