“Teaching should not be a cold presentation of facts to be memorized but rather a fun and inviting process where learning happens spontaneously and naturally.”

The Lil’ Genius Kid ™ Approach to delivering instruction is simple – we make it easy, fun, effective and entertaining! Our classrooms use state of the art multimedia smart boards to replace the old traditional “black board” or “chalk board”.
The combination of

Researchers and educators have found that people retain:
20% of what they hear
50% of what they see and hear
90% of what they see, hear, say, and do!
Multimedia represents one of the biggest revolutions in education and communication.
Since the invention of computers which have altered our ability to manage information,
multimedia allows computing to move from text and data into the realms of graphics, sound,
images, full motion video and lots more. This natural presentation of information through
text, graphics, audio, images, animation and music allows the instructor to be able to control
the lessons, repeat and replay information, managing their time more effectively and spending
more quality time with each student.
Using the various award winning recipes developed by Miss Rennu, the instructor does not have
to worry about creating the content of the lesson. Instead the multimedia approach delivers the
lesson as the instructor walks around the classroom ensuring every student comprehends and
paying attention to what is being taught.
In short, multimedia can be thought of as using a computer to provide a multi-sensory experience.
This experience enhances lectures, laboratory experiments, and individualized instruction by allowing
participants to control and manage multimedia navigation.
Benefits of Multimedia Instructional Methods
- Multi-media learning mirrors the way the human mind thinks, learn and remembers by easily moving from word to images to sound, stopping along the way for interpretations, analysis and exploration.
- The combination of media elements in a multimedia lesson enables trainees to learn more spontaneously and naturally, using whatever sensory modes they prefer. For example, some people learn best by seeing, others learn best by seeing and hearing, still others learn best through manipulation or kinesthetic (tactile) exercises.
- Combining media elements with well-designed, interactive exercises enables learners to extend their experience to discover on their own, so that they are no longer passive while information is "fed" to them.
- Students become more interactive with the screen and the recipes are designed to allow learners to pause, branch, or stop for further remediation, exploration, or enhancement opportunities; these interactive qualities encourage non-linear thinking.
- By combining words with pictures, graphics, and audio, multimedia programs enable children to learn by using sight, hearing, and touch. Evidence suggests that using multimedia segments as context for trainees significantly aids in reading comprehension.
- Instructional technologies help people learn to problem-solve and work in teams, which support the development of interpersonal skills.
- With a multimedia program an instructor can provide more individualized attention to the students in class and focus on activities that demand participation while students are able to learn on their own.
- Unlike television and a remote in their hands, or sitting in front of the computer with mouse, with no human interaction, our multimedia interactive lessons are constantly engaging the students to talk, get up and move around, participating and responding, as they listen and take instructions – hence we develop BETTER ATTENTION, FOCUS, LISTENING AND PARTICIPATION SKILLS!
Attention Span in Children & Television
“A wise old owl sat in an oak tree;
The more he listened, the less he spoke;
The less he spoke, the more he listened.
Why are we not all like that wise old bird?”
Have you wondered why the average attention span in children is so limited?
Did you know that children who are early readers and speakers develop a better attention span and concentration than those that do not learn to read early?
Reading to young children encourages them to sit down and focus as they listen to a story . . . to sit down and focus as they look at the pictures . . . to sit down and focus as they follow the story being read to them.
The average attention span in children, and their ability to concentrate at length, develops gradually over time as you continue to read and as the books you read grow in length and detail.
This development continues as your child grows and becomes an independent reader as well. This is why it is so important to make reading a part of your daily routine.
Skills can only develop if they are practiced, and reading to your child gives them the ability to
practice focusing and developing her attention span. And . . .
having the ability to stick to a task and finish it through to completion is a necessary and invaluable
to have as your child grows older, not only for academic success but also for future success in
Did you know that watching too much TV will have a detrimental effect on the average attention
span in children
, and on their ability to concentrate at length? TV is a constantly changing
medium that jumps from one topic to another in hopes of gaining and retaining viewership.
Add in a couple of commercials and you're lucky if any one, continuous, focused stream of thought stays the same for more than a couple of minutes! Yes, minutes!
Throw in the remote control on top of that, where viewers flip from station to station, and your continuous
and focused stream of thought is reduced from a couple of minutes to mere seconds.
And we wonder why the average
attention span in children is so short. How can we possibly expect our children to focus and stick with anything
when TV reinforces immediate gratification?
It is important to remember here that TV isn't the problem - it is the amount of TV that children watch that is the problem.
