As you may know, you have two sides of a very complex brain. And these two sides each have a distinct personality, so to speak. Each hemisphere learns differently - even though they function as a whole - to help us think, to learn, to love and to understand and communicate.
In this highly competitive world, would left brain skills suffice - not really! Future requires an equally developed creative/imaginative aspect, high acumen of problem solving skills, dexterity at social & emotional skills, power to access your intuition & talent to see the bigger picture.
The RIGHT BRAIN is emotional, creative, instinctive and learns through sponging up information through a type of intuitive absorption.
The LEFT BRAIN, on the other hand, is logical, methodical, disciplined and learns through repetition, reason and organization of data. Educational programs today teach to the left brain.
Success is measured by left brain competency. Tests, competition and critical thinking leaves the right brain behind. But when the right brain is included in learning, magical things happens: WHOLE BRAIN SYNERGY.
A child can sponge up information (right brain), then organize it (left brain), then communicate or express it emotionally and practically (whole brain) for the whole world to see. That's why, in a left brain world, whole brain balance is only possible with "right brain education." It's time for a new way to learn.
Young children naturally have active right brain abilities. However the right brain generally becomes increasingly difficult to develop and the rapid rate of learning decreases as a child grows older. When left untrained, these special right brain capabilities will gradually become dormant especially beyond the age of 10 years. By adulthood, only a small percentage of the population naturally retains active right brain abilities. Hence, the earlier we start to develop the right brain, the stronger it will become.
It is important to train and develop the right brain abilities of young children during the critical period of age 0-10 years. This will help to strengthen and sharpen their natural right brain capabilities and apply them in a systematic way over the long run. Residing in the right brain are the imaginative and imaging abilities, creativity and intuitive senses.
It also has the powerful ability to process massive amount of information at high speed combined with great memory retention abilities. While the left brain controls logic and reasoning abilities, sequential understanding, analytical function as well as speech and language acquisition and it also processes information at a slower speed. By stimulating the right and left sides of the brain at the same time, the powerful Right Brain Education Method effectively helps to synergize both hemispheres of the brain and thus significantly enlarging the whole brain capacity enabling the child to learn more efficiently and effectively.
It is important for students to meet and learn together with other children in the process of attaining right brain development. The Respond Right school creates a conducive environment to further enhance this group learning effect.
Children who receive regular right brain and whole brain training during the early years will be able to apply their enhanced learning capabilities in all areas of study when they reach primary and high school years.
With a well-rounded education, children are able to excel in a wide range of subject matter such as the academics, arts, music and even sports.
Respond Right Education (RRE) is a creatively designed curriculum by Jay Dhami and Kavisha Sheth for the early right brain development of your child. By travelling across different countries they have deeply studied the right brain exercises for kids and come up with a successful method. More
