SAN RAMON, CA., - November 30, 2012 /Worldwide Who's Who/
-- A new education service, designed to help children develop important academic and learning skills at an early age, will launch on Monday, October 29. For a limited time, several worksheets will be available at no cost so that parents and teachers may try out the service.
Globastudy is a new and unique e-learning website that will help children between the ages of 4 to 11 (or Grades K-5) to master basic learning techniques by using independent learning methods. The goal is to help children "learn how to learn" through fun, stimulating, and thought provoking content.
At launch there are hundreds of Globastudy worksheets that address four areas at each grade level. For example, K-2 students learn the importance of identifying and distinguishing decisions that are part of everyday life, decisions that are easy or difficult, and decisions that may take place quickly or require more time.
Unlike other existing e-learning services, which tend to focus on core subject areas such as literacy, math and science, the Globastudy academic enrichment learning programme is designed to develop the skills of children in areas that are not part of, but complementary to, the national academic curriculum. Course content and worksheets are self-paced and structured to help young learners internalize one academic milestone after another—so that they may build multi-disciplinary talent, knowledge, and skills in four distinct areas: Creative Writing, Critical Thinking, Poetry Writing, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning.
Globastudy's education programme is supplemental to the typical academic curriculum in the United States, as well as follows or is inspired by a curriculum of learning developed by education experts around the world.
"It is important for children to learn subjects, but it is also important for children to learn how to learn," says Globastudy founder, Swati Lahiri. "This is why the comprehensive programme of study that we have developed is complementary to the national curriculum and has content that is stimulating, fun to learn, and helps children develop skills that will become important to them in their future studies, social lives, and careers."
One example of Globastudy's course content is called Critical Thinking. Research has shown that children who engage in critical thinking exercises often improve their grades in classic results-oriented learning environments, such schools—and later in life. It enables them to analyse, classify, and prioritize information faster.
"With more perspective, children develop the ability to act with a rational mind," adds Lahiri. "Children who develop these skills are generally more stable in their attitude, persona, mind, and action. And developing new creative ideas and opinions gives children more chances for higher success later in life."
At $9.99 per month or an annual subscription of $99.99, the Globastudy programme has been designed for parents or guardians who wish to help their children develop their learning skills, as well as teachers who might use the course content and worksheets to assist their pupils. A free trial or access to worksheets is currently available.
