Life-Long Learning

Learning at West Dover School embraces the notion of a “life-long learner” and is represented in a variety of ways. Our main purpose is to ensure learning which engages all children, as well as, all adults. The focus of our learning comes from the philosophical understandings of “learning through the arts.” With this in mind, our beliefs are informed by reviewing good research around the notion of “constructivism.” In other words, what are the ways that children learn best and, how do children make sense of new knowledge by connecting new knowledge with prior knowledge?

Social Construction of Knowledge

Educational research by Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, and Eisner has influenced us around the notion of “social construction of knowledge.” Their research shows that children learn well when they are given opportunities to dialogue and engage in conversation that allows them the opportunity to make sense of new knowledge or information. Rich conversations facilitated and guided by the teacher, encourage the student to participate in a dialogue that offers opportunities to ask questions about their curiosities, wonder about things, inquire, seek information or contribute personalized understandings of old or new knowledge. 

This method of the study also encourages that learning is differentiated. In other words, teaching meets the individual learning needs of each student. By meeting the needs of individual students, each child has the opportunity to learn within their preferred learning style, as well as, at their own rate for learning.

Addressing Learning Styles

By teaching through the arts we are able to offer opportunities for learning using several different learning styles. The variety of ways that children learn include: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Visual learning could result from reading print, decoding words, watching a video, or observing the sunset. Auditory learning could include the teacher’s voice for direct
instruction, listening to music, social conversations or engaging in the audiotape of a DVD.

Kinesthetic learning usually involves “hands-on” learning experiences such as drawing, singing, acting, or playing a sport. Best instruction engages in a combination of these visual, auditory and kinaesthetic experiences. It is this combining of learning styles that deepens children’s understanding of new knowledge. By learning through the arts, children observe
their world and life reflectively and more vividly. And finally, given the opportunity to “socially” construct their new knowledge, an additional way of knowing, helps students make sense of their learning.
