From Kinder to College: Why Hands on Education Matters

From Kinder to College: Why Hands on Education Matters
Posted By: Kara Masterson on February 28, 2019

We have all been taught just how important education is. That much is a given. We believe in this principle to such a great extent that we spend most of our waking days in school until we are well into our second decade of life. However, the reality is that it is the type of education that really matters. One can go to school their entire life and come out the other end not really knowing much about life and how the world works. On the other hand, a hands-on education can prepare students with the skills and knowledge that are needed to be really successful.

Primary School


The foundational years are so important. This is not only when one learns how to read and write, but also how to interact with others. When your children attend a Montessori style of school, for example, they will be able to practice the skills that they are learning in the classroom. It is in this way that children learn without actually even needing to sit through a lecture. By practicing various skills, they will discover how to do things their own way and in their own time. This lasts longer than just memorizing something for a **** and only storing the information in short term memory.

Secondary School


As academics become even more important in secondary school, there should still be a focus on learning the practical skills that one needs to be successful in life.



Hand-on education should take place in the school laboratories, outside in nature, and in the community. Schools that think outside of the box by providing a more creative and unique form of education are becoming increasingly popular around the country. It is important to get teenagers out of their seats and actually putting into practice what they have learned in the classroom.

College


University life is what most of us strive for. This is when hands-on education should be offered in order to prepare future generations for the professional career that is soon to follow. Not all college programs are the same. In some schools you learn theory and practice with made up scenarios. In other schools, you work with real work issues and companies. This is what employers are seeking today. When your child attendsaccounting school , for example, hands-on learning will equip them with the specific knowledge they need to be successful at their job. This will be much more beneficial to them, and society, in the long run than just memorizing theories for a ****.

Education should be seen as a progression. However, a hands-on style of learning should be at the center of each stage. This will help to prepare a well-rounded individual for whatever future career they desire to have. It is also a way to practice many skills and harness an ability to truly make an impact with whatever one decides to do.
