My first model demonstrated that children learn best by the three following activities: reading, watching and listening. Although these three activities contribute greatly to learning, there is so much more that can help students learn better. Certain visual exercises and activities such as repetition and memorization can trigger and activate areas in the brain. Watching videos and activities on various electronics can increase their visual perception and help to activate key areas in the brain. Keeping students focused can also build up their attention span and will allow them to keep their focus for longer amounts of time. Students at first have a hard time focusing but with discipline and interest to keep them focused, their attention span can increase greatly. Something else that helps students learn better is by being social. Interacting with other students as well as the teacher helps students become more comfortable and relaxed, creating an ease that will help them learn better.
My original activity was an online learning game. I still agree with my first model, although I want to be a little more clear on what it really would be. My online learning activity would be a game that would allow students to work together on the computer. The activity would require students to stay on task and would deliver different directions on what to do. The activity would include visual questions as well as problems that would require memorization. Students would repeat these activities often, which would allow them to learn those certain lessons more effectively.
