the Current school is good for kids and they learn ever more, but it is not perfect. There are still challenges we need to solve. Among other things, it is important that we put in the effort earlier, so that all children experience mastery and not go out of primary school without being able to read, write, and count properly.Kent Gudmundsen Show more
the Solution is not later start of the school year, unless the theory or more play, but the early efforts with a more exploratory and activity-based learning, especially for the youngest students.
In an opinion piece in the Newspaper ask Stine Hjerpbakk in the Manifest tankesmie about current school is good for our children and about the early start of the school year for five-to six-year-olds were to the child's best interests. She advocated that children may begin early in school after the seksårsreformen in 1997, that there is too much theory and too little movement and activities.
Hjerpbakk writes that "the Right put an end to the five - and seksåringenes soft transition to school" when the PISA-shock came around the turn of the millennium. Now should the "emphasis on defined learning objectives and learning that can be measured".don't Get skolestarten they were promised Debate
This is the complete skivebom, and it is something sought to draw the parallel between the five - and seksåringers soft transition to the school and the PISA, which measures 15-åringers(!) expertise in some subjects. It is incorrect when she claims that fully the knowledge from 2006 led to that toy for the smallest children has been pushed more and more to the side of the more regulated, sedentary and "skolske" activities.
fully the knowledge was in no way a removal of learning through play. On the contrary, there was a reform where you emphasize that one could have different ways of learning through clear goals.
I don't disagree with Hjerpbakk that the kids have to get moving in the school, but we shall not sit in Parliament and decide how the classes should be added up in the many classrooms across the country. We have confidence that the teachers use sound learning strategies and combines theory with activities.
In the debate about the play and learning in the school constructed an artificial distinction between play and learning. There are several who believe that too much focus on learning in the school involves the children stress and pressure, but I think it is more stressful for children to be hanging in the school and not experience mastery.
We need to make sure that our smallest school children are not hanging in to learn to read, write, and count, or get a big kunnskapshull that is difficult to clog. We need to put in the effort early.the Use of ADHD drugs is exploding among Norwegian children Dagbladet Plus
The later the kids get the help they need, the more difficult it becomes to get back the motivation and læringsgleden, and the greater the chance is there that they later drop out of school.
We know that lekbasert learning is important for children. Therefore, the Right in government, and emphasis on learning through play should take place both in the kindergarten and school, and that our children will learn the basic skills early.
Now that we are rolling out the fagfornyelsen to fall in all schools, so there will be further to the right for that more subjects are more practical and exploratory, and we provide children and young people the opportunity to be more active and creative. But even if learning is also to take place through play, it is nevertheless not the case that children do not thrive in situations where there is a greater focus on learning.
When to reduce expectations to what the kids can get to, so we reduce at the same time coping sense all children should get to experience.
Hjerpbakk also draws out that the number of ADHD-diagnoses has increased, and that the boys born late in the year are more likely to get the diagnosis.
This is clearly a cause for concern, and it was just therefore Right in government, put down the selection that Thomas Nordahl led about special education in the school. It is set in motion a number of measures as a follow-up on this work. The goal is better and more adapted teaching early in the course.
For the Right goal is very clear; all children must be seen early, get to experience mastery and læringsglede - and get a customized training that ensures basic skills early. Then there is no contradiction between learning and play.Is the school good for children? Debate You can submit your article and opinion piece in Dagbladet here
